So it's the debut of the Dodgers' very own, seven-days-a-week, 24-hours-a-day TV channel! Is your heart all aflutter? Now you can try to satisfy your unquenchable Dodgers fix at 3 a.m., just as you've always demanded. Anyway, you can if you're a Time Warner Cable subscriber. As it stands, SportsNet LA will debut Tuesday night at 7 to those Southern California homes that subscribe to Time Warner. Would love to offer you an early review Wednesday morning, but alas I'm a DirecTV guy. The majority of us will be shut out of all TV broadcasts -- and all spring games will be telecast by SportsNet LA -- until Time Warner reaches agreements with all the other pay-TV distributors.

If you have tickets for playoff games at Dodger Stadium, and you would like to know what time the games start so you can plan your weekend or ask your boss for time off - sorry, you'll have to wait a few more days. Such is the power of television, and its billions that flow to Major League Baseball. When the league released division series game times Monday, the announcement covered games through Saturday. The Dodgers open the National League division series in Atlanta on Thursday, with first pitch set for 5:37 p.m. PDT. For Game 2, on Friday in Atlanta, first pitch is set for 3:07 p.m. PDT. The series then moves to Dodger Stadium, for Game 3 on Sunday and, if necessary, Game 4 on Oct. 7. If the series goes the maximum five games, the Braves would play host to Game 5 on Oct. 9. The Braves' Kris Medlen, named Monday as NL pitcher of the month for September, faces the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw in Game 1. Medlen went 4-0 with a 1.00 earned-run average in September, 15-12 with a 3.11 ERA overall.

It's been 20 years, measured by some hearts at 20 minutes. Rick Monday remembers arriving at Dodger Stadium, opening a letter, reading the words of a Vietnam veteran thanking him for saving the American flag from burning on April 25, 1976. He remembers because he received the letter last week. "Letters every week," Monday said. "All sorts of letters. For a piece of cloth." Twenty years, and Monday's smooth voice still trembles at the telling.

The Dodgers made the logical move Wednesday, naming Rick Monday as Don Drysdale's successor on the announcing team. Monday will join the crew today when the Dodgers play a doubleheader against the Mets at New York. Said Monday, who will also continue as host of KABC radio's "Dodgertalk" shows on the weekends: "I'm filling in to the end of the season because we've all lost a very dear friend in Don Drysdale."

Coming back: Rick Monday is back with the Dodgers. No, the 39-year-old outfielder, who was released last June, hasn't been recalled. He has been hired as one of three announcers who will work on Dodgervision, a pay-cable service that will carry 20 home games this season. The two other announcers are play-by-play man Eddie Doucette and commentator Al Downing. The broadcast booth may be Monday's best position, what with his baritone voice, glibness and smooth delivery. Monday isn't sure.

With Dodger General Manager Tommy Lasorda as a star witness, the Senate on Wednesday spotlighted its latest effort--and perhaps the most likely to succeed--to amend the Constitution to ban desecration of the U.S. flag. Appearing before a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Lasorda recalled a 1976 incident at Dodger Stadium during which Chicago Cubs outfielder Rick Monday snatched a flag from two protesters who had doused it with lighter fluid and were prepared to ignite it.

Vin Scully offered a disclaimer at the start of the first Dodger telecast this spring. "We're not going to lie to you," the veteran announcer said. "What you're about to see is not major league baseball, but you are going to see professional baseball." Scully, a Dodger announcer since 1950, said he was compelled to make the statement out of respect for his audience. On the field were replacement players substituting for striking major league players.
