LA Times Writer Says 'Rivalry Isn't What It Used To Be'

My favorite tidbit: One reason for that, says Dodgers pitcher Randy Wolf, is the fact the competition has been a little one-sided lately. The Giants have won the season series from the Dodgers only once in the last five seasons and haven't finished with a winning record since 2004. The Dodgers have made the playoffs three times in that span. Nothing inaccurate in that statement...but on the other hand, where was L.A. from 1998-2003? It's one-sided statements like these that prove that while rivalries do not always burn hot, they are always there, simmering, waiting for the resurgence to begin. Of course, Forbes also disagrees, noting that the Giants and Dodgers have finished tops and close to each other more often than any other rivarly. http://www.forbes.com/2009/04/28/baseball-best-rivalries-lifestyle-sports-baseball.html
