  There have been a lot of highly charged opinions expressed about the Dodgers' celebration of their victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday. The win gave the Dodgers the NL West title, and, considering the horrible start the Dodgers got off to this season, it seemed to make them release a lot of pent-up emotion. Many Diamondbacks fans are criticizing the team for running out onto the field and jumping into the swimming pool the Diamondbacks have just beyond the right-field fence.

SYDNEY, Australia - The Los Angeles Dodgers' season-opening series in Australia later this month takes place on some of the most hallowed sports turf in the world: the Sydney Cricket Ground. Just for comparison, baseball was being played at these cricket grounds almost 25 years before Fenway Park was built. That's right - baseball. The Sydney stadium, where the Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks kick off the Major League Baseball season March 22 and 23, is primarily a cricket venue, although rugby is played there as well.

Tuesday will be a landmark day for the Los Angeles Dodgers because their new cable network -- SportsNet LA -- will debut. Unfortunately for Dodger fans, so far only Time Warner Cable -- which is partnering with the team on SportsNet LA -- is carrying the channel in this region. None of the other area pay-TV distributors, including DirecTV, Cox, Verizon, Dish and AT&T, are anywhere near a deal to carry the service. The issue holding up distribution is price. Time Warner Cable agreed to an $8.35-billion, 25-year deal to run SportsNet LA, according to a valuation by the Dodgers and Major League Baseball . The annual fee that Time Warner Cable will pay to the Dodgers starts at $210 million this season and increases dramatically through the life of the contract.

The Dodgers are counting on offense to carry them in 1992. The Pitching Staff Ramon Martinez' less-than-impressive spring has put a bit of a damper on the enthusiasm surrounding the acquisition of knuckleballer Tom Candiotti and the apparent return to form of Orel Hershiser. Reliever Roger McDowell will be the closer as long as Jay Howell is out. The Skipper Tommy Lasorda, 64, recently received a contract extension through 1993.

October 19, 1988 | ROGER KAHN, Special to The Times and (Roger Kahn, a lifelong follower of baseball, covered the Dodgers for the New York Herald Tribune. He is also the author of eight books, including "The Boys of Summer" and "Good Enough to Dream.")
I saw my first Dodger World Series game in 1920, 7 years before I was born. The viewing instrument was my father, who relished baseball and had so vivid and detailed a memory that friends called him, somewhat laboriously, the walking encyclopedia. We were indeed walking on a quiet Brooklyn street and he began to recall a game, Oct. 10, 1920, when the Dodgers fell behind the Cleveland Indians.

A parade, including five floats loaded with Dodger players and coaches, will begin at 11 a.m. Monday in downtown Los Angeles.

Fact and fantasy had mingled for weeks, like a Hollywood creation slowly unfolding. But now they have somehow intertwined, and the Dodgers' improbable dream of winning the World Series is a reality. Thursday night at the Oakland Coliseum, the final scene was played in a Dodger season of expectations not only fulfilled but surpassed.

With Time Warner Cable putting the finishing touches on a new partnership with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the next question is what will happen to the team's current TV home, News Corp.'s Prime Ticket. Besides the Dodgers, Prime Ticket also has rights to the red-hot Clippers basketball franchise and Ducks hockey team. Its other Los Angeles sports channel -- Fox Sports West -- carries the Angels and Stanley Cup Champion Kings A Fox insider said there are no plans to consolidate Prime Ticket and Fox Sports West into one channel.

A day after Manager Don Mattingly said he wanted his entire coaching staff to return next season, the Dodgers fired his bench coach of three years. By dismissing Trey Hillman on Tuesday morning, upper management signaled to Mattingly that if he is to manage the Dodgers next season, he will manage under their terms. Mattingly revealed Monday a growing rift between him and the front office, insinuating he might not return in 2014 if he isn't offered a multiple-year contract.

In theory, Fox Broadcasting should have no rooting interest in the upcoming American League and National League Championship Series that will determine who goes to the World Series, which airs on the network. But theory is not reality and Fox executives are no doubt breathing a small sigh of relief that the small-market Oakland Athletics and Tampa Bay Rays have been eliminated. However, they are not all the way out of the woods yet. PHOTOS: Cable versus broadcast ratings The dream World Series for Fox is the Los Angeles Dodgers of the National League vs. the Boston Red Sox of the American League.

It was taunt and tense. It was a sweaty, nervous little game. And ultimately, one extremely frustrating game for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers lost the opener of the National League Championship Series, 3-2 in 13 innings, on Friday night when Carlos Beltran singled off Kenley Jansen to finally drive in the winning run in St. Louis. The Dodgers had chances all night to win the game but left 11 runners on base, hit into three double plays and had the potential winning run thrown out at the plate in the 10th inning.

The Dodgers looked like that team from midsummer that stormed to the top of the division, while Clayton Kershaw looked a lot like the pitcher they've seen all season. It all proved too much for the Atlanta Braves, who saw the Dodgers jump out to a 6-1 victory in the opener of their National League division series at Turner Field in Atlanta on Thursday. Kershaw was dominating, striking out 12 Braves and holding them to the one run on just three hits in his seven innings. BOX SCORE: Dodgers 6, Braves 1 It was the second-most strikeouts in the postseason for a Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher, after the 15 New York Yankees Sandy Koufax struck out in the opener of the 1963 World Series.

Every party has a pooper, that's why we invited you, party pooper, party pooper … Ah, some of the Diamondbacks were upset that half the Dodgers' team came back onto the field after clinching the National League West championship and jumped in their outfield pool? And isn't that just too bad? “They clinched the division this year so if that's how they're going to act and be classless, that's their clubhouse,” said Diamondbacks infielder Willie Bloomquist. Yes, the Dodgers violated that age-old unwritten baseball rule: Never pee the other team's pool.

Well, that was one lousy idea. I mean, come on, these are the Dodgers. The Los Angeles Dodgers. One of baseball's most storied teams. Their standards are supposed to be higher than those of the Padres. Yet there they were Friday night, unveiling a sign across the center-field wall that proclaimed: LA 2013 NL-West Division Champions. Really? This is what they do now at Dodger Stadium? Hang signs announcing a division title? I don't think so. At Dodger Stadium they hang World Series banners.

SAN FRANCISCO - The young man, a plumber's apprentice, had taken a couple of days off, driving to San Francisco for a reunion with his father and brother. A little before midnight he was dead, stabbed by strangers near a nightclub. But as word of 24-year-old Jonathan Denver's killing spread Thursday, it became clear that this was the latest turn in a saga that stretched back more than a century - to the roots of one of the most storied and bitter rivalries in American sports. Authorities said Denver was wearing Los Angeles Dodgers apparel at the time of the attack, and was involved in an altercation with Giants fans.
