Frank McCourt may be a bum for what he's done to the Dodgers' organization (The Day That Damned the Dodgers, Aug. 29), but for some to hold him accountable for the Bryan Stow assault is ridiculous. The real problem is the amount of alcohol being consumed by fans during games. The drinking and subsequent lewd behavior is so outrageous, you fear for the visitor who gives the wrong look or says the wrong thing to a home fan.
James McCallum, San Diego
I agree that McCourt is responsible for pushing the Dodgers to the edge. However, I still maintain that the path to destruction in L.A. began in the early '90s when the concession stands starting selling black Dodgers caps. This was an open invitation to displaced Raiders fans, allowing Dodger Stadium to become a new nest where they could roost and go wild.

Less Is More
Here's another reason to institute Joe Posnanski's 154-game solution (POINT AFTER, Aug. 29) in baseball: October weather. Because of TV contracts that call for prime-time starts, baseball replaced the splendor of day games in October with freezing night games. A shorter season would mean fewer cold nights for the most important games of the season.
