Arizona State defensive tackle Will Sutton apparently is a quick healer. Sutton, who is tied for third nationally in sacks, suffered a knee injury against Oregon on Thursday. He spent the remainder of the game on crutches. On Friday, Arizona State issued a statement saying Sutton was "week to week. " On Sunday, defensive co-coordinator Raul Randolph told the Arizona Republic that Sutton was "day to day" with the Sun Devils preparing to play UCLA on Saturday. UCLA Coach Jim Mora called Sutton an "explosive player," adding, "Any time you take a great player out of the mix it hurts you a little bit. " However, whether Sutton plays "won't change too much what we do," Mora said.

Todd Graham enters his second year in Tempe and the most exciting news is that he's still there. OK, that was last year's joke after Graham abruptly left Pittsburgh after one season to take the Arizona State job. Graham got to town with a shaky reputation, and it seemed as if he might have more hat than he did cattle. He worked hard, though, to make people care about Arizona State again as he repaired a brand wounded during the last, undisciplined days of Dennis Erickson and Vontaze Burfict.

Ross Newhan and a Times headline writer suggest that former Dodger Don Sutton was "snubbed" by members of the Baseball Writers Assn. of America when they did not elect him to the Hall of Fame during his first four years of eligibility. I suggest the writers were overly generous in electing him at all. Granted, Sutton is fifth in strikeouts and his 324 wins place him in a tie for 12th. But he also ranks seventh in losses with 256. He's No. 16 in runs allowed, No. 10 in hits allowed and only three other pitchers have given up more home runs.

On April 11, we asked you to list your choices for the 10 greatest Dodgers of all time. You could vote via comment, Facebook, Twitter or email. And vote you did. Between April 11 and April 21, when voting closed, we received an amazing 12,231 ballots. So many, that we have decided to expand the list from the top 10 to the top 20. Each weekday at 11 a.m., a new player will be listed as we count down all 20. Remember, any Dodger, Brooklyn or L.A., was eligible, including managers, owners, announcers, etc. Points were assigned based on where you list the player on the ballot.

The Baseball Hall of Fame belatedly has reached out to Don Sutton. Some of us saw qualities in him years ago that caused us to install him in a greater hall of fame based on character. Years ago, while he was still with the Dodgers, I was being trained as a volunteer with Hospice of the Conejo, and I was asked to visit a 13-year-old boy, Kenny, who would soon die of a brain tumor. I met Kenny in his hospital room while he had the World Series on his TV because I had heard he liked baseball.

For Don Sutton, everything is going according to schedule. For Donnie Moore, it's gotten to the point where he doesn't even have a schedule anymore. Sutton, who is throwing more pitches this spring than he has in 21 years in the majors, turned in five good innings Friday at Angels Stadium. He allowed two earned runs to the Cleveland Indians but yielded just three hits and struck out six. Even so, Phil Niekro came out on top of this battle of graying 300-game winners as the Indians won, 3-1.

Don Sutton does not belong in the Hall of Fame, 324 wins or no. Don Sutton was a very good baseball player. He was very good for a long time. But the Hall should be the domain of baseball's elite, not a gold watch handed to a solid employee for his years of service. In a Hall filled with monuments, Don Sutton is a street sign.

The "Year of the Dragon" is not a racist film. It is just the latest in a long series of movies ("Dog Day Afternoon"; "Taking of Pelham One Two Three"; "Godfather" and "Escape From New York") that depict New Yorkers as obnoxious punks. The film industry treats all New Yorkers alike. STEWART A. SUTTON Los Angeles

ABC Family — or, as I think of it, ABC "Family," given its relative lack of interest in small children, adults or boys of pretty much any age — is a network in large part dedicated to the proposition that there is nothing better to be in this world than a hot teenage girl with a large clothing allowance. (It makes even your troubles glamorous.) This may in fact be true. The latest show to support this notion is "The Lying Game," which premieres Monday and comes from the same cross-platform content packagers that brought you "Pretty Little Liars," "Gossip Girl" and "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

Alas, ABC Family 's “Bunheads” finished its second season this week. That's the fast-talking series starring Broadway triple threat Sutton Foster. But “Bunheads” isn't really about Sutton's character, Michelle Simms. Actually the show isn't about any one thing, but a lot of little things going on in the fictional California coastal town of Paradise, where Michelle mentors young ballerinas (a.k.a. Bunheads). For Broadway fans, the best episodes showcase the two-time Tony winner.

Sutton Foster - toast of Broadway, musical theater dynamo and an actress who has been hailed as a "triple threat" wonder by critics - is missing from the Great White Way. A year after scoring her second lead actress Tony Award for the revival of "Anything Goes" and dazzling the Tony television audience with her tap-dancing performance of that show's title song, Foster has switched coasts and turned away from the greasepaint and nightly standing...

Despite playing the occasional flapper or showgirl, Sutton Foster is not considered a showbiz "bad girl," someone whose fame stems from tabloid breakups or behaving badly on a reality show. A Tony-winning musical comedy star, she made her name the old-fashioned way: though years of anonymous work interrupted by a fortuitous break. So when Foster says, "I'm trying to break every rule possible -- and I hope I do so," it sounds a little out of character. Foster is talking about cabaret, not the Kander-Ebb musical but rather the theatrical form -- and her instinctive suspicion of it. "Cabaret can have such a negative connotation," Foster says just before a rehearsal for the cabaret-style show she's bringing to the Kirk Douglas Theatre this week.

"Bunheads" is a new series from Amy Sherman-Palladino, who, half a generation ago (or so), created "Gilmore Girls"for my niece Zoe to bond with her mother over. It premieres Monday on ABC Family Channel, where it will sit companionably alongside that network's other series, built mostly around the travails of young women, and hopefully find the audience and corporate tenderness it deserves. Sutton Foster, a Tony-winning star of Broadway musicals but rarely seen on television - she was Coco, Bret's sign-holding girlfriend in the first season of"Flight of the Conchords" - plays Michelle, an aging Las Vegas showgirl at the end of her tassels.

On May 1, Gavin Smith disappeared. After returning from a Las Vegas conference, the longtime 20th Century Fox executive -- who distributed such hits as "Titanic" and "Avatar" -- inexplicably missed a school pickup for his teenage son. His Mercedes is missing along with him. His family and authorities have been unable to locate him either through cellphone records or credit card billings. This week, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department intensified its search, but detectives said they have no solid leads.

A government test has determined that a red dye used in many lipsticks is a powerful herbicide capable of killing marijuana plants, prompting some Bush Administration officials to propose using the dye in an airborne offensive against domestic marijuana cultivation.

Sutton Foster appears to be putting her Broadway experience to good, or at least remunerative, use in "Bunheads," the new series on ABC Family that is set to premiere June 11. The network has released a first clip from the comedy-drama in which the Tony-winning actress not only demonstrates her dancing chops but also her experience enduring cattle-call auditions. Foster, 37, left the current Broadway revival of "Anything Goes" to star in the TV series, in which she plays a former Vegas showgirl who gets hitched and moves to a coastal town where she finds a job working as a dance instructor for her mother-in-law.
