Dear Dodgers: I apologize. May I please have my fork back now? MEL POWELL Sherman Oaks With all the new faces, the Dodgers should consider returning players' names to their uniforms. Can't tell Tomko from Repko, Lugo from Loney, or Betemit from Brazoban. Does the batboy have a mustache? BILL BROGAN Oxnard Since the swap of Milton Bradley for Andre Ethier, Ned Colletti has made a series of shortsighted moves that won't be enough to keep the Dodgers from being on the outside looking in this postseason, while weakening their roster next season.

Who would've guessed the perennials in the garden would last longer into the season than the Dodgers, who have wilted under the hot sun. ADAM WAYNE Los Angeles It is good to see that Ned Colletti and Grady Little have found a way to make certain the Dodgers avoid their disappearing act in September. This year they took care of that in July. RALPH S. BRAX Lancaster Much-maligned Paul DePodesta made a controversial trade that landed the Dodgers this year's starting pitcher for the All-Star game.

Ned Colletti will return as the Dodgers' general manager next season, club owner Frank McCourt said Wednesday. McCourt had declined to discuss the issue all season, even after the Dodgers clinched the National League West championship. However, after the Dodgers lost in the National League Championship Series, McCourt said Colletti would be back. The Dodgers won a playoff series for the first time in 20 years, reaching the playoffs for the second time in three years under Colletti.

Into a room whose walls still echoed talk of sample sets and sabermetrics, the new Dodger general manager showed up Wednesday and changed the subject. Ned Colletti, talking hardball. "Can we win as the team is constituted right now?" he said. "No. We've got our hands full." Ned Colletti, talking clubhouses. "I believe in character, work ethic, coachability, how badly someone wants to win," he said. "Statistics don't tell the whole story." Ned Colletti, talking swagger.

With the Manny deal consummated, I would like to thank Frank McCourt on behalf of all Dodgers season-ticket holders for publicizing an accounting strategy I hadn't considered before last week. As it relates to my $25,000 season-ticket invoice that is now well overdue, I have just mailed a check for $5,000 and will defer the balance over the next four years without interest. After all, as Mr. McCourt espouses, "it provides financial flexibility, which is a great thing to have in this economy."

The Dodgers waste no opportunity to promote Tom Lasorda, and vice versa. So Lasorda will board a tour bus this morning at Dodger Stadium, entertaining reporters and sponsors on a six-hour ride to the team's new spring home in Glendale, Ariz. Here's a better idea: Kick the reporters and sponsors off the bus. Put Frank McCourt and Ned Colletti on it. Head south to Newport Beach and pick up Scott Boras. Then head east, across the desert, toward Arizona. No one crosses the state line until the Dodgers sign Manny Ramirez.

It was a dream job, but not under dream circumstances. The Chicago Cubs wanted to hire him. The Cubs! He had grown up in Chicago. He loved the Cubs. Ned Colletti loved baseball, ever since his father had treated him to a day at Wrigley Field for his seventh birthday. But he was in Philadelphia, an out-of-work hockey writer, wondering how he could possibly support a wife and newborn child on $14,000 a year, the Cubs' pay rate for an entry-level job in media relations.

When the Dodgers rushed onto the field to celebrate their 4-3, 13-inning victory over the Washington Nationals on Saturday, Manny Ramirez wasn't there. He wasn't even in the ballpark. Ramirez, who was put on the 15-day disabled list Friday because of a strained right calf, had returned to Los Angeles. The main reason was that Ramirez has a Monday appointment scheduled with team physician Neal ElAttrache , who will review the results of the MRI exam Ramirez had Friday.

Memories, may be beautiful and yet What's too painful to remember We simply choose to forget … Ah, yes, but sometimes they do come flooding back. Which would explain the barrage of emails, tweets and texts I've been receiving all day asking - no, pleading - for me to write the Dodgers off. Some of you are truly amazing, remembering all the way back to 2006 when the Dodgers also lost eight consecutive games and I said they were done. In July. This was while I was at the Los Angeles Daily News, and The Times' T.J. Simers was so aghast at my boldness that he got out his pompoms and wrote an entire column ripping me for it . Must be where he learned to be so negative.
