    We’ll find out about the condition of Walker Buehler’s right index finger very shortly. Buehler just came off the injured list and will be the Dodgers’ starting pitcher tonight against Oakland.

    @ Question Mark: In my opinion, the L.A. County Department of Public Health won’t permit high school football to be played here unless the coronavirus case numbers and hospitalizations continue to decline. Schools haven’t even reopened for the general student population yet.
    I believe that the answer to your question is no; the privilege of playing high school football is not worth an upsurge in infections.

    Is lack of conditioning playing a role on all these possibly career ending injuries to these stars? If Notre Dame has a spread and the players are protected what kind of spread is going on campus in frats and dorms? Utah is playing high school football but now has one of the highest infection rates in the country. Is playing high school football where the kids get infected and spread it at home and neighborhoods worth it? Is herd immunity a real thing without vaccines? In the USA if 100 people over 65 test positive 10 or 11 of them will die from it and it is a long rough death in most cases.. Is that okay with the Pete Carrolls of the world? Is it any wonder why grandpa will not attend beloved grandsons or granddaughters games? Can people hang on for the latest prediction of maybe a proven vaccine in 2023 and lock down until then?

    The Dodgers clinched their eighth consecutive National League West title on Tuesday night, with an assist from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
    L.A.’s 7-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics, coupled with the Angels’ 4-2 win against the San Diego Padres, put the Dodgers five games ahead of San Diego with five games to play. Although the Padres could end up in a statistical tie with the Dodgers, L.A. has won its season series with San Diego.
    The Angels, who played dismally during the first half of the 2020 season, have improved so dramatically in the second half that they have a faint shot at the No. 8 seed in the American League playoffs.
    Manager Joe Maddon’s team, which has four games left, is three and-a-half games behind the Houston Astros and Toronto Blue Jays, who currently hold the last two playoff spots in the A.L.

    Those three coaches need to be banned from the league for life, have their bank accounts and homes seized, and be charged with viral assault against the globe. Nobody is exempt from the need to virtue-signal at this time of great danger (except rioters).
