Dodgers Blog Kiosk: 10/9/2012

The above photo was posted up by the @Dodgers on twitter in commemoration of the day they announced that the Dodgers coming to LA- yesterday was the anniversary  If I'm not mistaken, I believe the photo is from in front of an old Los Angeles Baseball stadium called Wrigley Field- former home of the Hollywood Stars and Los Angeles Angels of the PCL.
  • Paul Swydan at FanGraphs isn't a big fan of Luis Cruz.
Instead of drawing walks, Cruz made his hay by making contact — only 30 players had a K% less than that of Cruz’s 11.5 K%. But can Cruz maintain such a low strikeout rate? Anecdotal evidence would suggest not.
Truth be told, however, he played well for the Quakes in Rancho, but his numbers were more of the very-good type, as opposed to the you’ve-got-to-be-kidding-me variety.
In 52 at-bats with the Quakes, he hit .327 with one home run and four RBI. He had a .407 on-base percentage and a middling .423 slugging percentage. He did not eat the Cal League.
Puig is understandably green, though he will turn 22 in December. The Dodgers remain sky-rocket high on his potential. Of course, they are sort of invested.
“Plus-plus tools,” Colletti said. “Power and speed. He’s going to need some work around the game, inside the game.”
"The other day I was working with center fielder Matt Kemp, and people were yelling for him when I heard my name, too," she says. "There was a 12-year-old girl who said, 'I wanna do what you do.' How cool is that?"
