Dodgers Blog Kiosk: 8/20/2012

Here is a great photograph shared this morning by Sports Illustrated Vault on twitter.  It is from April 1964.
  • Jon Weisman at Dodger Thoughts speculates that Rubby De La Rosa might be pitching in LA before the season is done.
  • Josh Suchon shares his interview with former Dodger Tim Belcher.
  • Jeff Kent will be on Survivor!  It is in the Philippines this time, and I for once might have to watch.  I'm hoping the cast will have to eat Balut.  Don't ask me what that is, you won't like the description.  (Hat Tip: Jon Weisman at Dodger Thoughts)  BTW, Topps made a Balut card for 2012 Allen & Ginter as a Culinary Curiosities insert card.  See it below.
  • The ballhawk Zach Hample was in Atlanta for the Civil Rights Game featuring the Dodgers and Braves, and he has a bunch of pics from the day.  He even snagged some commemorative Civil Rights Game balls.
  • Via eddieoaots on reddit, someone decided to edit Angel Compos' wikipedia page- he was the umpire involved in the recent Mattingly and Kemp ejections.
  • The Melky Cabrera suspension for PED just got weird.  Daily News has the story.
In a bizarre attempt to avoid a 50-game drug suspension, San Francisco Giants star Melky Cabrera created a fictitious website and a nonexistent product designed to prove he inadvertently took the banned substance that caused a positive test under Major League Baseball’s drug program.
  • One, Two, Three, Four... I Declare a Twitter War!  The Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings and the Detroit Red Wings are in the midst of a battle on twitter.  Check out Die Hard Sports for details.
  • If you haven't seen the Zeephus pitch then watch the video below.  Barry Zito threw the greatest change-up of all time.
