REPORT: RAYS' FRIEDMAN ON DODGERS' GM LIST

MAKING NEWS

Could the fallout from the Dodgers' flameout in the playoffs impact the Rays? Initially there was speculation the Dodgers could inquire about manager Joe Maddon as a replacement if Don Mattingly is fired. Now Los Angeles Times columnist Bill Plaschke reports that the Dodgers might soon ditch GM Ned Colletti and "their top target appears to be Andrew Friedman," the Rays' executive VP. Friedman, who operates without a long-term contract, has given no indication he is inclined to leave the Rays, declining previous opportunities with the Angels and his hometown Astros.

HAPPY B-DAY, JUNIOR

At 40, Dale Jr. is close to nirvana

Imagine hitting 40 and having everything on your bucket list checked off. Dale Earnhardt Jr. finds himself close to that as he turns 40 today. Consumed by grief after his father died in the 2001 Daytona 500, he considered quitting racing. Since deciding to continue, he has arrived in a great place. He has found love and stability with girlfriend Amy Reimann. And he's contending for his first NASCAR Sprint Cup title. "I wouldn't have anything else in life that I'd want," he said. "That might be a little bit sad. I'd be happy about winning a championship. I'd be complete. I'd be finished with any kind of quest."
