    For Julio Urías, winning World Series was about honoring the 'Fernandomania' legacy

    As told to Times staff writer Jorge Castillo. That whole last inning, I was like, woof, anxious. It there were a camera focused on me, it would’ve showed me moving the entire inning. I was walking in circles. I couldn’t stop myself. I felt like, “Wow, this is going to happen.” At the same...

    Dolphins use Patriots' Super Bowl scheme that shut down Rams to do it again

    It was the Stupor Bowl all over again. Rams quarterback Jared Goff looked jittery, confused, frustrated. Virtually every time he dropped back, there was a defender in his face. And too many times, a live ball was on the ground. The mess in Miami on Sunday, with all those swarming Dolphins in...

    Kurt Warner lived what Dolphins are looking to start with Tua Tagovailoa against Rams

    The future Hall of Fame quarterback saw it coming, but that did not make it any easier. In 2004, Kurt Warner had led the New York Giants to an unexpected 5-4 start. A team that was 4-12 the previous season without him was possibly postseason bound. But the Giants, with an eye toward the...

    Is Dodgers’ World Series title cheapened by unique 2020 season?

    ARLINGTON, Texas — There was only one World Series championship available to win in 2020. But how does the Dodgers’ win after the most unique – and shortest – season in Major League Baseball history stand up to the 115 World Series winners that came before? “I think if you can pull back stuff...

    Whicker: The Dodgers’ win bears an asterisk, but they didn’t put it there

    Sixty games aren’t 162. Nobody wins the Daytona 167. They don’t stop the Masters on the back nine Friday afternoon and award the green T-shirt. Those who say the 2020 season, and the Dodgers’ championship, don’t deserve an asterisk have a fundamental misunderstanding of what an asterisk is. It...

    Alexander: Clayton Kershaw is a future Hall of Famer … and now a champion

    The photo should be iconic, if it isn’t already: Dodgers manager Dave Roberts embracing pitcher Clayton Kershaw, moments after both men unloaded persistent, nagging monkeys off their backs with a World Series championship.
