  • I thought I would provide this quick notice that the Dodgers will be showing the movie "The Sandlot" after the ballgame on Sunday, September 1st.  More information is available here.
  • "Q & A: Magic Johnson happy to be a role player with Dodgers," via Mark Medina at the Daily News.
Q: Has your role with the Dodgers evolved this season compared to last year?

Johnson: No. I'm enjoying my role. I called every player before the season and talked to them on how we didn't have a leader. I talked to (Clayton) Kershaw, (Adrian) Gonzalez and A.J. Ellis recently and I said, 'You guys have really come on as the leaders of this team.' When I recap last season, we didn't have a leader. That hurt us. My role is to look and see what's missing and try to fill the blanks. Wherever they need me to fit in, that's what I'll do. I've tried to teach our players about having a winning mentality.
  • On twitter Bowman Scout (a Topps twitter account) shared a early pic of the Yasiel Puig Bowman Platinum Top Prospect card.  See it on the right.  BTW, this product officially went live today.
  • Roberto at Vin Scully is My Homeboy has the story on an apparent "bait & switch" at Dodger Stadium.  Kids were suppose to get some fancy Dodger sunglasses, but instead received cheap knock-offs.  FOR SHAME!

"He's making another start, we're just not sure where," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said on Tuesday.
  • Here's a minor league update.  Phil Gurnee at True Blue LA writes, "Dodgers minor league report July 30: Matt Magill shines in 2-0 victory".
