    Another manager is fired. Why is it the players are never blamed for a team's poor record?

    The Reds, who have the lowest winning percentage in the National League, just swept the Dodgers in a four-game series for the first time since 1976. The Dodgers are now 16-24 and only 1½ games above the last-place Padres in the NL West. The last time they lost 24 of their first 40 games was 1958. Manager Dave Roberts told Los Angeles Times sports writer Bill Shaikin, "I just don't think we're playing good baseball." No kidding.

    Today the Marlins beat the Dodgers, 6 to 5. For your amazement and amusement, here are the standings for the NL West -- and this year, in their 61st season since moving from Brooklyn, the Dodgers have reverted to being "Dem Bums."

    --------------------------------W--L---Pct--GB
    Arizona Diamondbacks.......25-18, .581 (--)
    Colorado Rockies...............23-20, .535 (2)
    San Francisco Giants..........22-22, .500 (3½)
    San Diego Padres..............17-27, .386 (8½)
    Los Angeles Dodgers..........16-26, .381 (8½)

    "Freedom of speech? We don't need to give you any stinkin' freedom of speech!" It is truly scary that in the United States of America a ballpark employee gets fired simply for laughing at a colleague's off-color impersonation of a former announcer.......in private!

    Citi Field scoreboard operator, fired for laughing at off-color jokes, plans to file a complaint for unjust dismissal

    He spent 76 years in baseball, beginning in 1942 with the Albany Cardinals in the Georgia-Florida League. His pay then was $75 a month.

    Red Schoendienst, Cardinals second baseman and manager and oldest living Hall of Famer, dies at 95
