Blog Kiosk: 4/30/2012

WooHoo!!!!  McCourt No More!!!  Via Tim Brown, the Dodgers sale closes today.
  • Big League Sports catches up with Dodgers coach Charlie Hough as a new documentary called "Knuckleball" hits the film festival circuit.
Did you ever think you would be the subject of a feature film?
A horror show maybe, but no never a film. The documentary is really the story of all those who have thrown it to varying degrees of success and really our common stories of how we got to be knuckleballers. I think it’s neat and I hope people enjoy it. It’s not your average sports film.
  • Has Javy Guerra been hit with the Snuggie curse?  Check out Sons of Steve Garvey for details.
  • True to the Blue recaps the Kemp and Ethier signings at Frank & Sons, and shares some great photos.  LA Blue Crew was at Autograph Alley at Dodger Stadium for the Tommy Davis signing on Saturday and Billy Ashley on Sunday.
  • Ken Levine, the DodgerTalk former host, put up some great pics from the recent Doo Dah Parade in Pasadena this past weekend.
  • This past weekend saw the Dodgers sweep the Nationals.  "Chris Capuano and James Loney lead the way on Sunday, via Steve Dilbeck of the LA Times.
  • With the Dodgers sale closing today I would suspect that the rumors related to the Dodgers extending Ethier will soon become reality.  MLB Trade Rumors notes that it could be up to a 5 year deal at $15Mil a year.
  • Sports Collectors Daily follows up on the Ted Williams Collection auction held by Hunt.  It recently closed and featured his 1949 MVP Trophy that sold for $299,000.00.
  • Do you remember when back in 1997 David Wells came onto the mound wearing Babe Ruth's game-used cap?  Well, that same cap is now on auction at SCP, via the New York Times
Wells said he wanted it to “look like a major league field,” and hopes to finance the renovations (at Point Loma High School in San Diego- his Alma Mater) partly with a portion of the proceeds from a memorabilia auction. Wells’s lot includes the 1930s Babe Ruth cap he bought for $35,000 and wore in the first inning of a game at Yankee Stadium
  • "Party With My Friends" A Star Wars sing along.
