I hope that Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist Al Mendoza can do his part to help clean up his own backyard, the Philippine media. Then the Little League fiasco will not have been in vain.

How could you have an article about the NBA's top rookies and not mention Richard Dumas of the Phoenix Suns (Baby Boomers, Jan. 25)? Dumas joined the Suns about a month into the season and quickly stepped into the starting lineup, no small feat considering that Phoenix has the best record in the NBA. While lots of rookies are putting up big numbers for mediocre teams, Dumas, who as of Feb. 26 was averaging 17.4 points and 5.2 rebounds, has recorded impressive stats for a championship contender.
