Michael Ramirez's Dec. 15 editorial cartoon faults politics for the legal troubles of Linda Tripp. Fact is, Bill Clinton was put through the legal process, was impeached and the Senate voted not to remove him from office. Tripp, on the other hand, allegedly committed an illegal act of wiretapping and now must face the law. Perhaps Ramirez's cartoon should have depicted Tripp hanging from the cord of her own telephone.

AT THE PLATE: Yasiel Puig started for the first time since Saturday, when he sprained his left thumb diving headfirst into first base. Puig was one for four, as he doubled to left field in the eighth inning and scored on a double by Hanley Ramirez. Puig also scored in the third inning, when he reached base on a fielder's choice. Ramirez was three for four with two doubles and three runs scored. Ramirez is now hitting .310. ON THE MOUND: Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched seven scoreless innings, gave up only two hits and didn't allow a baserunner to get past second base.

Michael Ramirez's Jan. 8 cartoon equating Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle with Sept. 11 attackers goes beyond bad taste. To equate Daschle's economic ideas with murderous, terrorist actions suggests to me that Ramirez thinks that normal political give and take, if it does not bow down to our $1.3-trillion tax cut president, is a danger to our nation. This cartoon is hateful and petty in the extreme. Brian L. Mark Altadena Typically I find Ramirez's cartoons simply unfunny and overly obvious.

San Francisco Giants 8, Dodgers 4 KEY MOMENT: With the Dodgers' early 8-0 deficit cut in half, Hanley Ramirez stole second base with Adrian Gonzalez at the plate and no outs in the seventh inning. However, Giants Manager Bruce Bochy challenged and successfully overturned the safe call involving Ramirez at second base. Gonzalez struck out on the next pitch, ending any realistic chance at a comeback. The sequence marked the first time the expanded replay system was used in a Dodgers game.

The beating Ramirez received at the hands of angry citizens was the only punishment he'll ever get for his crimes. From here on out, it's all roses. First, there will be a long and costly trial. After he's convicted (in spite of the experts mobilized to defend him), he'll be housed in clean private quarters, kept in idleness, and fed and clothed at state expense. His teeth will be fixed. His health, both physical and mental, will be checked periodically and treated, all by the state.

The "Ramirez Provision" is no more. The Dodgers -- and all other major league teams -- cannot mandate that a player donate to club charities as part of his contract, the commissioner's office and players' union have agreed. Michael Weiner, the executive director of the players' union, said the agreement does not restrict players from making donations but ensures the choice is theirs. "The goal here never has been to interfere with players making charitable contributions, which guys have a long history of doing," Weiner said Wednesday.

Manny Ramirez shouted in Spanish across the clubhouse to Angel Berroa. "I told them I'm not coming back next year!" Ramirez told Berroa, pulling his head back as he laughed. Nearby was a group of reporters he had spoken to earlier Monday, after arriving at the Dodgers' spring-training complex three days before position players were obligated to do so. Perhaps Ramirez was amused that he could still make headlines by simply verbalizing widely held assumptions -- in this case, that this season would be his last with the Dodgers.

Accused Night Stalker Richard Ramirez was wrestled to the floor and dragged from the courtroom by bailiffs Wednesday afternoon after they apparently became upset when he turned his head in the direction of a witness who was being escorted past him. Three bailiffs repeatedly struck the lanky defendant with their fists as they jumped on him and quickly pulled him out a doorway and back to his holding cell. Ramirez, who as usual was manacled in leg chains, did not cry out during the brief struggle.

Accused Night Stalker Richard Ramirez admitted to police shortly after he was taken into custody that he was the feared serial killer, according to sealed testimony from Ramirez's preliminary hearing that was made public Wednesday. "I want the electric chair. They should have shot me on the street," Los Angeles Police Officer George Thomas quoted Ramirez as having said while being held in an interview room at an East Los Angeles police station. "I did it, you know. You guys got me, the Stalker."

It's been a year since Manny Ramirez sat down in the Hotel Nikko here to explain himself, why he was nothing like the quitter described in Boston, the ideal free agent for teams looking to getting better. He was using Page 2, and Page 2 was more than happy to be used. It was 10 a.m., the big goof on time, serious, thoughtful and with a believable answer to every question, some might argue, whatever it took to earn another big contract. It worked, the Dodgers the happy benefactors a year ago, almost everyone in L.A. swept away by the charisma and his remarkable hitting skills.

The Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres, 5-1, at Petco Park on Wednesday night to improve to 4-1 on the season. Here's a recap of the game. AT THE PLATE: Hanley Ramirez, Adrian Gonzalez and Andre Ethier entered the game a combined four for 43. But the Dodgers' 3-4-5 hitters discovered their collective rhythm, as they combined for four hits and four runs batted in. Ramirez, who was one for 15 in the first four games, drove in the Dodgers' first...

Hanley Ramirez has entered his walk year. Ramirez and Dodgers Chairman Mark Walter each expressed interest in completing a contract extension eight months ago, but the two sides have not reached a deal, and Ramirez can file for free agency after the season. Ramirez could be the premier position player available in free agency, if he gets there, when contract values for star players are escalating rapidly. The other top position players eligible to hit the market appear to be fellow infielders Chase Headley of the San Diego Padres and Pablo Sandoval of the San Francisco Giants.

The future made an appearance for the Dodgers on Friday. Not the one coming this season maybe, but some season not too far distant. Right-hander Zach Lee, the Dodgers' No. 1 pick in 2010 who had been slowed by a muscle strain in his back, finally made his first spring appearance, starting in the Dodgers' 2-1 victory over the Rangers at Camelback Ranch. It was only two innings, but it was a start. Lee, 22, allowed two hits - including a leadoff double to Shin-Soo Choo off the wall - struck out one and did not walk a batter in his two scoreless innings.

Dodgers 3, San Diego Padres 3 AT THE PLATE: Dee Gordon tripled in a run. Hanley Ramirez collected his first hit of the spring, a single to right field in the third inning. Top outfield prospect Joc Pederson drew walks in each of his two plate appearances. Pederson also scored a run. ON THE MOUND: Josh Beckett struck out three over two scoreless innings. Paul Maholm, who would be the Dodgers' fifth starter if one of their starters is unavailable, also pitched two scoreless innings.

PHOENIX - Five games into the exhibition season, Yasiel Puig batted leadoff for the first time. He figures to do that a lot more this year, as Manager Don Mattingly said he is thinking of batting Puig first this year. "I like him getting that extra at-bat," Mattingly said. Under that scenario, Carl Crawford would probably bat second, Hanley Ramirez third and Adrian Gonzalez cleanup. Puig and Ramirez bat right-handed; Crawford and Gonzalez bat left-handed. As a rookie last season, Puig batted leadoff seven times.

PHOENIX - In the clubhouse a day before position players were scheduled to report for spring training, Hanley Ramirez said Wednesday he wanted to be “a Dodger for life.” But Ramirez otherwise declined to talk about his contractual status, saying with a smile, “I'm a baseball player.” Ramirez said he was still disappointed with how the Dodgers' 2013 season ended. Struck by a fastball, Ramirez fractured a rib in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series. He could barely swing the bat for the remainder of the series, which the Dodgers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals.

In 1989, attorney Ray Clark got a telephone call that would make him, for a while, one of the most famous lawyers in Los Angeles. The call to his small firm was from the presiding judge in the trial of Richard Ramirez, accused of being the brutal serial killer known as the Night Stalker. The defense team that Ramirez's family had hired was falling apart, and the judge wanted Clark to take over as lead defense counsel. Clark agreed, and soon became a fixture in printed and broadcast news accounts, protesting his client's innocence.

Angels minor league catcher Carlos Ramirez, an eighth-round draft pick out of Arizona State in 2009, received a 100-game suspension without pay on Thursday after a third positive test for a drug of abuse. Ramirez, 25, was suspended for 50 games to start 2013, a season in which he hit .206 with six home runs and 22 runs batted in in 48 games for double-A Arkansas, his second straight season at double-A. The suspension of Ramirez, who is currently on the triple-A Salt Lake roster, will be effective at the start of the 2014 season.
