Juan Uribe decided to have some fun with a photojournalist over the weekend. He grabbed her as she was taking some photos and wanted to dance, in the photo above. Watch a video of the event at the very bottom of this post. Pic via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2013.
- "Charley Steiner shares thoughts on the McCourts, Vin Scully and love," via Steve Dilbeck at the LA Times.
- "Dodgers bring smile to son of slain police officer," via Brian Rokos at the Press Enterprise.
- "Yasiel Puig is fine, Carl Crawford is not," via Tony Jackson at Dodger Scribe. Please... Just hold it together for another month or so.
- "Dodgers have trust issues -- in Yasiel Puig not annihilating them," via Steve Dilbeck at the LA Times.
Teammates have visions of their bodies being splattered to all parts of the outfield after being steamrolled by Puig.
“Those infielders, I know they don’t trust him,” said Manager Don Mattingly. “He comes in — and the outfielders are the same way — it’s hard to trust him because he runs into people. And he doesn’t stop and back off of balls.”
- Matt Kemp is coming back? "Matt Kemp injury: Dodgers CF could return Monday, might be healthiest outfielder," via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA. Hopefully he's ready to rake!
"We'll see him tomorrow. He'll be at the ballpark tomorrow working out early with us, running, doing the bases and doing all that," Mattingly said. "I've been told that depending on where he's at, it could be tomorrow. I don't know. Obviously we want him to be healthy."
- "Dodgers' Nick Buss a hit in major league debut," via Kevin Baxter at the LA Times. See my blog post from Saturday about Nick's nickname.
- "Actor Wheaton describes life as a die-hard Dodgers fan: Former Trekkie, who has bled blue since birth, takes part in 'Express Written Consent'," via Alyson Footer at MLB.com. There's a video to watch. Wheaton is a huge LA area sports fan. When the LA Kings won their recent championship his wife recorded him going crazy at his home. It's a classic and well worth the watch. See that video here.
"I pretty much grew up in this stadium," he said. "It wasn't until I was 10 or 11 years old that I figured out that Vin Scully came out of all the radios that were all over the place. I just figured 'Oh, that's the voice of baseball.' The way that someone growing up in Chicago would think of Harry Caray as the voice of baseball, Vin Scully is very much the voice of baseball for me."
- "Vin Scully video of the night: 'It Takes Two' opening," via Kevin Roderick at LA Observed. Check out a fun vintage video they share of Vin in a silk-style robe.
- Watch this very funny video of Juan Uribe grabbing a Korean photojournalist (I think) for a dance in the dugout.
