Tuesday night, when the defending champion Los Angeles Kings opened defense of the Stanley Cup title at St. Louis, the game went into overtime and overlapped the start of the Los Angeles Clippers' key NBA playoff game against Memphis at Staples Center. Because of the conflict, Fox Sports West displayed the Kings and Clippers game in a split-screen format, something that made neither fan base happy. Clippers fans were able to catch that game on a full screen on TNT. Wednesday afternoon, Fox Sports West and Prime Ticket issued this apology: “We sincerely apologize to the Kings and the Clippers and their fans,” said Steve Simpson, senior vice president and general manager for Fox Sports West and Prime Ticket.  “We didn't serve them as well we should have with our coverage of last night's games.

Now that Time Warner Cable has beaten Fox Sports for the TV rights to the Los Angeles Dodgers, it's time for the loser to make a dramatic move in retaliation. And that should be lowering the price of its Prime Ticket cable channel next year after it stops carrying the Dodgers. After all, the Dodgers are the channel's marquee property and without them, ratings for Prime Ticket will take a hit. The fee for Prime Ticket to distributors such as DirecTV and Time Warner Cable is about $2.50 a month per-subscriber, according to industry research firm SNL Kagan.

Starting to get excited? The most expensive baseball team in the history of the universe is scheduled to play its first spring game Saturday. Only you will not be able to watch it. In fact, you'll be able to watch fewer than half as many Dodgers spring games from Arizona as you could last year. The Dodgers' current broadcast schedule for their 2013 games from Camelback Ranch calls for only seven games to be televised. Last spring the Dodgers had 15 games on television from Phoenix.

It's one thing to leave your heart in San Francisco, quite another to lose your mind there like Don Mattingly . Has there ever been a more ridiculous comment offered by a Dodgers manager, and take into account Tom Lasorda said a lot of ridiculous stuff while on the job, than what Mattingly said Sunday? The Dodgers lost three straight to the Giants, whom they will probably have to beat if they are to win a division title. And Mattingly said: "I feel better about our club walking out of here than I did walking in. " My apologies to Mike D'Antoni for thinking he was the most clueless coach in town.
