PHOENIX (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers are headed to the desert, a trip that inevitably brings references to the big brawl that erupted with the Arizona Diamondbacks in the last series between the two NL West rivals.
Players from both sides say that the blowup, while not forgotten, has been pushed aside in favor of the more pressing matter of competing for the West title.
As Arizona outfielder Cody Ross put it, "We've got more important things to worry about than buzzing somebody or fighting."
Some of the Dodgers vowed after the June 11 incident that it wasn't over. Maybe some sort of revenge will be extracted far down the road, but they say not in the 3-game series that begins Monday night.
