The Paper Trail 4/21

Interesting stories from newspapers across the nation:

  • Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times writes that Bud Selig comes to the rescue for the Dodgers.
  • Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times writes the Dodgers' status could remain in limbo for the foreseeable future and that new Dodgers vice chairman Steve Soboroff defends the team's owner by saying "we need more people like Frank McCourt."
  • Richard Justice of the Houston Chronicle writes that the Astros should travel the Rockies' road.
  • Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune writes that Matt Garza's time should come if he keeps pitching as he has.
  • Jerry Brewer of the Seattle Times writes that Mariners rookie Carlos Peguero whiffed in a key situation but at least he has upside.
  • Jim Souhan of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune writes that you can forget about Joe Mauer being an everyday player unless he is moved from behind the plate.
  • David Waldstein of the New York Times writes that R.A. Dickey says it's time for the Mets to be honest.
  • Your truly writes for the Beaver County Times that it's too early to panic over Pedro Alvarez.
