Jerry Dipoto's offseason machinations were set in motion by the trade of Mike Zunino for Ray outfielder Mallex Smith. Whether this is just part of a small plan or the beginning of a rebuild that could resemble a teardown is one of many questions in what figures to be an intriguing winter.

Dodgers’ Andrew Friedman calls Farhan Zaidi’s departure ‘a big loss’ but won’t rush to replace him

CARLSBAD — Tied for first place in the Dodgers’ fantasy football league, Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman and his former right-hand man Farhan Zaidi will be competing in the real sports world now. The San Francisco Giants made the hiring of Zaidi to head their baseball operations official Wednesday afternoon with a press conference at AT&T Park. “It was certainly less comfortable than it would have been in the other five divisions,” Friedman said of Zaidi’s move to a divi...

Trump the reason GOP lost control of House: Letters

Even the most gung-ho of Republicans must have got the message of Tuesday’s election. Donald Trump, yammer-in- chief, was the reason the GOP lost control of the House of Representatives. And the 2020 elections don’t look good for the Republicans with Trump spouting off and lying his head off daily.

Michael Schofield, Sam Tevi turn from pleasant surprises to starters on Chargers offensive line

COSTA MESA – When the time came and Forrest Lamp’s knee finally healed, Michael Schofield was supposed to relinquish his spot at right guard. That was the plan, at least. But such plans tend to be futile, and this season, that’s especially been the case. Starting right tackle Joe Barksdale already missed six weeks with a knee injury. Left tackle Russell Okung missed most of two games dealing with an injured groin. And Lamp’s somewhat mysterious recovery took longer than expected, leaving him ina...

Angels looking for healthy starters to supplement their rotation

CARLSBAD — The Angels’ need for pitching goes beyond simply needing good pitchers. They need healthy pitchers. After three years worth of season-shattering injuries to their pitching staff, the Angels are looking for durability, particularly among starters, this winter. Although General Manager Billy Eppler wouldn’t say on Wednesday at the GM meetings how much the Angels weigh durability vs. upside, it’s clear that a large part of the equation is finding pitchers who won’t get hurt.
