By The Editorial Board | [email protected] | PUBLISHED: September 17, 2019 at 9:57 pm | UPDATED: September 17, 2019 at 9:57 pm The continued attacks on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh represent another low in American politics. The New York Times’ Opinion section on Sunday carried a story labeled “news analysis” that repeated an unsubstantiated story about alleged sexual misbehavior by Kavanaugh when he was a college freshman in 1983.

Two straight World Series of Dodgers relievers throwing pitches that wound up soaring over outfield fences will do that to you. A summer of relievers giving up homers will, too, even though it should have been well established by now that everybody on every staff is giving up home runs at a prodigious rate in 2019. It doesn’t matter. The last two years have honed the fatalism of Dodger fans. To which Dave Roberts, asked what he’d tell those fans, … [Read more...] about Alexander: Can Dodger fans learn to trust their bullpen?
