1. Maybe Bill Plaschke read our Dodger Hat piece?
latimes:

Bill Plaschke: Things are lean at Chavez Ravine. On a sunny afternoon, about 8,000 fans attend the Dodgers’ victory over the Padres, the smallest crowd of the season and maybe the smallest ever.

Much of this is not news. You have read stories like this before. You have, in fact, probably read this story so many times this summer, your attention has glazed over at the barrage of pitiful depictions of the destruction of this town’s sports jewel.
But Wednesday was different. It looked and felt as though the McCourt era had finally, resolutely bottomed out. It was the last weekday afternoon game of the season. It involved one of the few teams worse than the Dodgers. There surely won’t be a smaller crowd this season. There has surely been no greater example of fans giving up something they love to spite an owner they despise.
