What a busy week this has become for the Dodger fan. Yesterday, we were introduced to Hyun-Jin Ryu. Today, it's Zack Greinke's turn to formally meet the fans- well, at least the local media.
At 1:30 PM, the Dodgers will show off their newest starting pitcher, and you can watch it all on Prime Ticket. You may also watch it live online on FoxSports West or here.
In honor of the todays showcase event I decided to use the photo tweeted by the Dodgers yesterday to make the above 1959 Topps fantasy card of Greinke. I think I've got everything spelled right this time.
I wanted to provide a quick reminder. Hyun-Jin Ryu will be making his first public appearance this afternoon in Koreatown. It will be from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM at:
Wilshire Park Place/Radio Korea BuildingI have no idea if he'll be able to sign autographs or take photos with fans.
3700 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA
(between Oxford and Serrano, east of Western Avenue)
BTW, Eric Stephen at True Blue LA has an excellent list of links related to his press conference yesterday. See it here.
Go ahead and listen to Ned Colletti and he speaks with Petros & Money yesterday afternoon at AM570 about the Dodgers recent acquisitions. Colletti said:
"He's ready to rock and roll. Obviously there's going to be some transition in a little bit of that both culturally, probably less baseball wise than culturally."
He added, "He's about 6'2, about 220, strong, great fast baseball change, breaking ball. Think about having to ability acquire somebody like that at 25 years old and putting him in your rotation [...] His pitched competitively in the WBC, its been great, pitched in the Olympics, been great, well as not Major League Baseball it's probably the best standards as you can have outside of Major League Baseball."
