REDEFINING SHOWTIME? In N.Y., Harvey Araton writes under the header, "Kobe Who? Showtime Has Moved To Dodger Stadium." Dodgers owner Guggenheim Baseball Management has "reinvigorated the Dodgers," while the Lakers have "begun what looks to be a certain decline." Dodgers investor Magic Johnson said, “L.A. is a real Dodger town right now. You should see all of the blue and white in town.” Araton writes it also is the Yankees’ "apparent slide toward mediocrity that enhances the rise of the Dodgers, who did not lead the majors in home and road attendance this season by accident" (N.Y. TIMES, 10/8).
