LEAN CUISINE: In L.A., Bill Plaschke examines attendance at Dodger Stadium under the header “Things Are Lean At Chavez Ravine.” Plaschke attended yesterday's Padres-Dodgers and notes it was the "smallest crowd I’ve seen in my 23 years of following the Dodgers." While the official attendance was 27,767, 11 sections of the ballpark were "completely vacant" and there were "maybe 8,000 folks" at the game. Plaschke added, "It might be the smallest crowd in the 49-year history of Dodger Stadium. ... It looked and felt as though the McCourt era had finally, resolutely bottomed out” (L.A. TIMES, 9/1).
