Free 33

The above pic was made by The Left Field Pavilion, and it is something I absolutely endorse.

Give Blake DeWitt a chance at the second base job. He may not have the obvious tools of a Matt Kemp or Orlando Hudson, but he has the heart and desire to get the job done.

He reminds me of a former Dodger outfield prospect named Shane Victorino who was constantly passed over and over. Sure, he didn't project to be a superstar, but he could play. He worked hard to excel and when given an opportunity to play everyday he cemented his position as a regular on the club.

Free 33!

Kareem Signing

I don't normally post stuff like this, but I figured there might be some folks who would appreciate it.

I know he wasn't a Dodger, but he did wear the uniform once. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar will be at a Best Buy this coming Saturday at 1:30 PM in Los Angeles. He will be posing for pictures and signing autographs. Although, it appears he will be signing a photo sleeve (whatever that is), so I do not know if he will be signing anything you decide to bring along. As Roberto at Vin Scully is My Homeboy says, be sure to call to confirm.

PS. Be sure to send him your well wishes as he battles with leukemia.
