Plaschke returns

L.A. Times columnist Bill Plaschke won best column honors from the Associated Press Sports Editors for the second time in three years today. That begs a question: where has Plaschke been?

He's scheduled to re-appear in the paper tomorrow and resume his regular Friday, Sunday, Wednesday routine, says Harvey.

Phil Wallace | The Dodgers do need help in the back of their rotation. But giving up a top prospect for an ace like David Price would be a huge mistake.
Al Martinez | Martinez lies abed craving a hot, sweet thing right then and there, but Cinelli who lies next to him can always figure him out and suggests that he might just relax and think of puppies instead.
Visiting Blogger | Yahoo finally changed its incorrect info on his client -- after he tweeted CEO Marissa Mayer -- but Google still lists the wrong name, address and industry. "Google plainly does not care," says our guest blogger.
Phil Wallace | Without a coach or a competitive roster, the Lakers seem to have no vision for the future.

The latest version of the mayoral web site, Data LA, is greatly improved from its shaky first edition. Even modestly computer-savvy Angelenos get enough information to come to their own conclusions about the mayor and the rest of city government.
