Check out this great photo of some fellows playing Dodger Stadium sandlot Baseball. It is from November 8, 1961 during its construction. Pic via @Dodgers_History on twitter.
- Carl Crawford is having a baby. Via People, "Father of Evelyn Lozada’s Baby Is Carl Crawford". I have no idea who this is, but apparently she's kinda famous. Lozada was on the show Basketball Wives, and was formerly married to football player Chad Ochocinco.
- Wow. Dodger Penguin is leading in the Dodger Social Media Rewards Program.
- BTW, the Dodgers made the Brian Wilson signing official on Saturday, per a Dodgers press release.
"After how well Brian pitched down the stretch and in the postseason, we are very pleased he is returning," said Dodger General Manager Ned Colletti. "He's a proven veteran with a history of success in high-leverage situations."
- Today is the first day of the MLB Winter Meetings in Florida. Reports have already been coming in about what the Dodgers will be looking for. Ken Gurnick at MLB.com writes, "Colletti confirms possibility of trading outfielder".
"We've got four really good outfielders and we've got to be careful. We can't sell off to sell off and in 2015 say, 'Let's go get an outfielder on the free-agent market," he said. "We've checked the list. It's not overloaded with choices. There's a lack of impact outfielders available. We better be sure if we make a move that we help our club for a while."
Colletti wants to add a late-inning lefty, a late-inning righty and a long guy for the pen, ideally. #Dodgers

- And Colletti has had some discussions with Juan Uribe, as well. I wonder if he'll be able to get something done soon. Via Mark Saxon on twitter:
Ned Colletti said he has made a few different offers to Juan Uribe, hasn't had much dialogue lately because they're waiting for his answer
