ST. LOUIS -- The Dodgers do not plan to bring Steve Lyons and Eric Collins back to their broadcast team next year. Lyons had worked on the Dodgers' television broadcasts for nine years, most recently as an analyst on road games and on pregame and postgame shows. Collins, with the Dodgers for five years, had served as the play-by-play voice on televised games outside California and Arizona -- that is, the games to which Vin Scully did not travel. Lyons, a former major leaguer, announced news of his dismissal on Saturday via Twitter.

Steve Lyons survived being fired for saying something on a baseball broadcast that he probably shouldn't have. But that didn't shut him up. He still works the pregame and postgame shows for the Dodgers at home on Prime Ticket and handles the analyst chores with play-by-play partner Eric Collins for those road games Vin Scully does not work. And Lyons still says what he thinks.

ST. LOUIS -- Only a day removed from starting in his first game in nearly a month, outfielder Andre Ethier was back on the Dodgers bench Saturday for Game 2 of the National League Championship Series. Not only was the lower part of Ethier's left leg hurting again, the rest of his body was sore. Ethier, who didn't have the luxury of playing on a minor league rehabilitation assignment before his return, played nearly the entire game Friday night. He was removed as part of a double switch in the 13th inning.

Steve Lyons dropped his pants, and the fans at Tiger Stadium dropped their jaws. Lyons, known as "Psycho" to his Chicago White Sox teammates, slid into first base for a single in the fifth inning of Monday night's game against the Detroit Tigers. After he got up, Lyons unbuckled his belt, dropped his pants and bent over to brush away some dirt. Fans roared at the sight of Lyons wearing nothing but an athletic supporter over a pair of white long johns.

Eric Collins did a week of practice games with Dodgers television partner Steve Lyons. They went into a booth at Dodger Stadium last week and pretended as if they were on television calling balls and strikes, making conversation, telling little stories, doing a broadcast. And Collins worked the clubhouse. He introduced himself to each Dodger. He wanted for them to know him. "I'm the guy who's going to be talking about them on television this season," Collins said.

Fired Fox baseball commentator Steve Lyons, who has won support nationwide since losing his job, acknowledged Wednesday that he signed an agreement not to say anything else the network deemed inappropriate after a 2004 incident involving then-Dodger Shawn Green. Lyons acknowledged the agreement only after being asked whether Fox had ever given him a warning. "It said, 'If I mess up again, they can fire me,' " Lyons said. "But it's what they deem a mess-up-able offense."

Baseball commentator Steve Lyons, whose flippant style has gotten him into trouble before, has been fired by Fox for comments he made Friday during Game 3 of the American League Championship Series. In the second inning, broadcast partner Lou Piniella was talking about Oakland's Marco Scutaro and the success the usually light-hitting shortstop had at the plate during the previous series against Minnesota. Piniella compared it to finding a "wallet on Friday" and hoping it happened next week.

Remember that game in which Boston had two on in the ninth inning and was trailing Milwaukee by two runs with Wade Boggs at the plate? Steve Lyons, who was on second, tried to steal third and was thrown out to end the game. "It was one of the stupidest things I've ever seen," said Boston Manager John McNamara. Lyons, traded to Chicago in the Tom Seaver deal, is gone but not forgotten. In particular, he is missed by Don Baylor, who presides over Boston's kangaroo court.

Ford Motor Co., whose U.S. sales declined 5.2% in the first quarter, named Steve Lyons as its North American sales chief, replacing Earl Hesterberg, who resigned after only six months on the job. Hesterberg, 51, will become chief executive of Group 1 Automotive Inc. in Houston, a publicly traded auto retailer, according to a statement from that company. Ford spokeswoman Marcey Evans said the departure wasn't related to this year's sales decline at Ford, the second-biggest U.S. automaker.
