Blog Kiosk: 4/15/2013


Please keep AJ Ellis' words in mind at this evenings Jackie Robinson Game at Dodger Stadium.  Via AJ's twitter.   Now, to catch up on some news since I was out all weekend long.
“If he’s smart, he’ll take the suspension,” Kershaw said after Friday’s game vs. the D-backs. “Eight games is not nearly enough. For what he did, he should be OK with that.”
BTW, Quentin dropped his appeal, so he will not be playing against the Dodgers in the current homestand.
Berman was a middle infielder, so although Robinson was playing first base that year, he was eager to soak up anything he could from the natural second baseman. Berman would warm up with anyone who would throw with him, and he would pepper the players with questions about how they had approached recent games. "I'd ask them, How come you did this instead of that, and they would explain it," he says. Robinson talked to him especially about how to make the pivot on the double play.
The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres will have only three days to cool off from their damaging Thursday night brawl before they meet again, Monday at Dodger Stadium. When they do reunite, it will be on a night that honors, among other things, a ballplayer who turned the other cheek when much more than an 89-mph fastball came flying at it.
Some Dodgers fans decided to splurge on seats at Chase Field's Batters Box Suite behind home plate last night, an investment of more than $3,000. That kind of money doesn't buy respect, though, as they learned when Diamondbacks owner Ken Kendrick demanded they change their clothes or seek seating elsewhere.
