Letters: They believe in Yu, but not in us

2 months agoSports / Baseball : Dodgers Now

I read Bill Plaschke's column after the the Yu Darvish trade and realized that the baseball season was over. The Dodgers won the World Series, Friedman and Zaidi were executives of the year and Roberts the manager of the year. Bill disregarded Darvish's struggles this year as " trade distracted...

Letters: Lakers fans relatively happy with their week

Bill Plaschke had such a great opportunity on draft night to take attention off LaVar Ball and give it all to Lonzo, but no, he did the exact opposite. He decried all the attention-grabbing while giving him exactly that! Lonzo will be the star of the game and as a Bruins fan, I am thrilled beyond...

Letters: What will the Lakers do with No. 2?

4 months agoSports / Baseball : Dodgers Now

Careful what you wish for, Bill Plaschke. If Lonzo Ball does indeed have NBA-ready skill sets (probably wishful thinking) and if he is coachable and possesses necessary leadership ability (at best unproven) and if a neophyte coach with one disastrous season under his belt can actually coach him,...

Letters: Plenty of Madness to go around

My wife attended the University of Arizona. So you can imagine my disappointment upon reading expert prognosticator Bill “It Just Feels Right to Pick the Falcons to Win the Super Bowl” Plaschke's choice of U of A to win the NCAA tournament. Too bad, Wildcats, there's always next year. Konrad Moore...

Gosh, does Bill Plaschke’s column on Mark and Aiden Cullen [”The pride and the pain,” March 9] sound like a screenplay waiting to happen?

Bill Plaschke | Bruins go to school on the Trojans

Everyone knows the UCLA basketball team can score, and dish, and run through the gym as if they are flying. But at a rollicking Pauley Pavilion that included all those things Saturday night, the Bruins proved capable of equally important attributes. They can learn. They can grow. And yes, they...

Bill Plaschke | Lucerne Valley has been outscored by 747 points, but the Mustangs refuse to quit

The small yellow cardboard sign is propped in front of an endless stretch of barren desert, alongside a narrow road leading to nowhere. The sign has been scrawled upon with a dark marker pen, its message hastily abbreviated, the words squeezed to fit the space. It is, to be perfectly honest, an...

The NFL Sucks So Hard

I don't suppose anyone cares, but I just want to say for the record that I agree entirely with Bill Plaschke today: Every relationship is built on honesty, so the San Diego Chargers should hear this as their moving vans are chugging up the 5 Freeway on their noble mission of greed.

Bill Plaschke | USC-Penn State matchup: a Rose Bowl the way it's meant to be

The sophisticated Southern Californians grew so impatient waiting for their opponents, when the rubes finally did arrive,...

“Besides Alabama, are there many team in the country that would be more feared right now?” So says Bill Plaschke of USC. It is my opinion that anyone making those statements about a team that opened the season with a 52-6 loss and beat a highly overrated Washington team 26-13 has a problem. Could...
