You would think that a lengthy stint on the disabled list would spare us from dopey columns about Yasiel Puig. And yet, here we are, watching L.A. Times columnist Bill Plaschke turn his palms toward the sky and ask, “Do the Dodgers even neeeeeeed Yasiel Puig???”
And just cause, here's a baker's dozen of my favorite BASW stories over the years:
Petros Papadakis is busy preparing for Fox's Cotton Bowl broadcast tonight, so L.A. Times columnist and Around The Horn panelist Bill Plaschke guest-hosted Petros & Money on KLAC radio in Los Angeles on Thursday. Despite a world of sports topics worth discussion in Southern California at 3 p.m. Pacific yesterday,…
With today's game six preview column, Plaschke has entered the pantheon of writers who write like Bill Simmons.
Because every stupid thing in sports requires one to take sides, we're torn on this one. Do we agree with the guy who willingly puts his life on display on an E! reality show, then says it's not fair to talk about his personal life? Or do we agree with — gulp — Bill Plaschke? You can see our dilemma.
Well, this was probably the most inevitable column of the Olympics: Bill Plaschke, harshing Lindsey Jacobellis's mellow.
Lindsey Vonn sure is purty, but who does she think she is? Getting everyone all hot and bothered over our Yankee Doodle Dandy and then having the audacity to break her shin before winning any gold medals! What a tease.
You know that swell new show everyone's watching? The one where sportswriters pretend to feel strongly about things on television? No, not The Sports Reporters. Not PTI. The other one. Around the Horn. Well, Bill Plaschke thinks it's totally fresh!
Manny came back to Mannywood last night, and the fake dreadlocked Dodger fans welcomed him back with open arms, much to the consternation of you know who.
There is a silver lining to be found in this Manny Ramirez mess—L.A. Times columnist Bill Plaschke can finally say "I told you so!" Manny duped a lot of people, but not this guy!
While searching for photos of Los Angeles Times columnist (and "Around the Horn" regular) Bill Plaschke, we came across this one. How in the world did Plaschke get on that panel?
We have seen Bill Plaschke's desk. Well, to be more precise, we haven''t actually seen the surface of the desk — just the refuse piled on top. We doubt that anyone working at the Los Angeles Times since the early 1990s has seen what's underneath. To best describe it, think Dennis Nedry's work station in the film …
