Even with all of the controversy surrounding game-used relics in cards, I still find this card really cool. Found on ebay is this "1 of 1" 2012 Triple Threads All-Star booklet card of Matt Kemp. It appears to include game-used apparel from the 2011 All-Star game.

- The Dodgers continue to search for talent internationally. As has been reported widely, the Dodgers spoke with 18 year old Japanese right-handed pitcher Shohei Otani, via WEEI. Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, Mike Petriello at Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness, and Chad Moriyama go into it deeper.
- For you aspiring journalism professionals this should be an interesting read. Tom Hoffarth at the Daily News reports that LA Kings Insider blog reporter Rich Hammond left his job as an independent reporter employed by the Kings because the NHL was unhappy with an interview he wrote with Kings winger (enforcer) and team player representative Kevin Westgarth about the lockout. His position was always rife with peril. It's a difficult balance between being an objective report and being paid by those he reports on. It seems that he did not feel comfortable with the notion that the Kings could safeguard his work, even as the Kings promised that they could. So, having the kind of integrity his readers have come to appreciate, Hammond's chose to resign and work elsewhere. Niesy at Jewels from the Crown has more.
