Well, this is looking ominous. Like Ralph in the final scene in “Lord of the Flies,” the Dodgers hope this week just to escape the smoke and make it to the beach in one piece. So far their game with Arizona tonight has not been called off, although they are planning to sell marshmallows on long sticks.
Shouldn’t joke: These SoCal wildfires are serious business, as Dodgers shortstop Rafael Furcal will tell you. His was one of the many homes evacuated as firefighters continue to battle the blaze that has consumed more than 50 buildings and 100,000 acres.
