THE END IS NEAR: VARIETY's Jon Weisman noted Scully's recent comments are "as close to a retirement warning as he has ever really come." The Dodgers opening the NLDS tonight in Atlanta means Scully is "making a rare journey to the east, but only" for the Dodgers' broadcast radio on KLAC-AM. With the Dodgers "moving to their own television network in 2014 via their multi-billion deal with Time Warner Cable, Scully has likely already broadcast his last over-the-air televised game." His commitment to the launch of the new network next year "obviously had to have come as a massive relief to the parties involved, but the reality of going without Scully might be coming sooner than they like" (VARIETY.com, 10/2).
