I need some dirt to kick. I need a base to throw. I need a big blue chest to bump. I need an explanation How did the Dodgers' Matt Kemp not win the National League most-valuable-player award? Somebody tell me. Somebody show me. Use sabermetrics. Go to the video. I don't care. If there is one piece of concrete evidence that says Kemp should not have been voted MVP over Milwaukee's Ryan Braun, I want to see it. This is a robbery greater than a Kemp leaping catch. This is a steal more blatant than a Kemp sprint.

Staples Center is home to four professional sports franchises, the Lakers, Clippers, Kings and Sparks. Each team has a different set-up on the arena floor. It is up to the crew overseen by the Staples Center operations department to reconfigure the floor for each game. Several times a year they must make the changeover twice or more over one weekend in between games. Last Saturday afternoon, while fans were still heading for the exits after the Clippers' 103-100 loss to the San Antonio Spurs, 65 workers began transforming the arena for the Kings' game against the Calgary Flames that night.

After the Dodgers' Andre Ethier took a called third strike in the sixth inning Thursday against Milwaukee Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo , his frustration didn't subside after he returned to the dugout. While James Loney was at bat, Ethier continued to complain to home plate umpire Adrian Johnson , who then tossed Ethier from the game — Ethier's first ejection of the season. "I thought it was a bad call," said Ethier, who then trotted back out on the field at Miller Park to further complain to Johnson until Manager Joe Torre intercepted him. "The pitch was repeated with the next batter — same exact pitch, I thought an even better pitch — and he called it a ball that time," Ethier said.
