Painful. Just painful to try to rank these guys. It is a dog-eat-cog world.

Anyway, remember: We at ESPNLosAngeles.com would still like to hear your stories (approximately 500 words) of how you became Dodger fans, what the team means to you and how recent events have affected you and that fandom. Send your stories to this mailbag link. We'll publish a great sampling of them.

If you're having any trouble submitting, quit your web browser and try again. That seems to help in several cases.
