BASEBALL: Hang It Up, Scott

Well, maybe it was a nice idea, but Scott Erickson, who's lost his slot in the Dodgers' starting rotation, is not just done, but long past done. It's been six years now since Erickson posted an ERA lower than 5.55. Since 2000, Erickson's ERA is 6.46, the highest of any major league pitcher to throw at least 250 innings in that period. Over that stretch he's walked more men than he struck out and allowed 11.34 hits per 9 innings. This season, he's walked 18 and struck out just 9 while allowing 11 home runs in 42.2 innings. It's over.

Ditto for Raul Mondesi.

He does have Lisa Guerrero to go home to.
