Blog Kiosk: 12/11/2013 - Dodgers Links - Puig in the Community, Another Kershaw Award and RIP Don Lund

Yasiel Puig made a visit to Childrens Hospital LA yesterday.  Pic via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2013.  See more photos here.  BTW, Adrian Gonzalez will visit CHLA later this afternoon.
"I am so happy with this city and I don't know how I can thank our fans for making me feel happy but I can try by doing nice things," said Puig. "I don't like to be proud of myself for what I've done because it's only a little and I just want to keep doing more. I want to thank the Dodgers for helping me in making my ideas come true."
  • Via Matt Snyder at CBS Sports, "Best Winter Meetings exchange: Kirk Gibson vs. LA media person (Dylan Hernandez)".  Just awesome.
  • Another award for Clayton.  Via Ken Gurnick at, "Kershaw wins Starting Pitcher of the Year GIBBY".
  • RIP, Don Lund.  Former Brooklyn Dodger Don Lund died yesterday.  He was 90 years old.  Dave Brandon at the UofM website writes all about him.  Don had was a coach for the Wolverines Baseball team and the Detroit Tigers after retiring from the game.
  • Mark Mulder is trying to get back to the big leagues.  He credits Dodgers reliever Paco Rodriguez for his potential return.  Via  Jerry Crasnick at, "Mark Mulder attempting comeback".
But things changed in October when Mulder watched Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Paco Rodriguez on TV and found something in Rodriguez's delivery that he could emulate.

  • Via Chris Olds at Beckett, he introduces us to an Asian-market Baseball card set created by Topps called 2013 Topps Supreme.  Check out a couple of preview images of the Hyun-Jin Ryu cards, below.  BTW, there are also Asian-exclusive cards for Bowman Sterling and Museum Collection.
