Can you spare a square for the Dodgers’ next Jami?

Rangers at Dodgers, 1:05 p.m.

Over at Variety, I indulged my TV-Dodger nexus with a short post on the potential that actress Jami Gertz could end up in the Dodger owners box. Here’s a quick excerpt …

    Loved Square Pegs.
    Did you remember that she was also in a couple episodes of HBO’s “Dream On”–use to love that show, too–and a show called “Dreams”?

       Dream On, yes. Dreams doesn’t ring much of a bell.

    Hairston tries to blow ball foul

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb-big-league-stew/jerry-hairston-takes-page-lenny-randle-attempts-blow-170023554.htmlDoesn't surprise me that he failed.  He wasn’t much of a gasbag in person.
