- GCRL makes a bunch of 1982 Topps fantasy cards that should have been. They are postseason championship cards featuring the 1981 Dodgers World Series champs, and they are awesome.
- Harold Uhlman at Think Blue LA, writes a great biography on the other Dodgers lefty ace- Karl Spooner.

Sounds like just another baseless rumor that is based upon speculative brainstorming rather than actual discussions with said player.
- Angels announcer Victor Rojas shares a recent chat he had with Vin Scully.
- Don Mattingly recently spoke with Jay Mohr on AM570, and endorsed Jack Morris for the Hall of Fame.
