- Emma at Dodger Blue World pays tribute to the Dodger players who passed away in 2012.
- The Kershaw's and some friends have just headed out to Zambia to check out Hope's Home - a children's orphanage sponsored by Kershaw's Challenge. Read it all here.
- Steve Dilbeck at the LA Times put together a great list of Dodger New Year Resolutions.
- Check out From the Ravine's Extra Innings podcast as they discuss the potential lineups for both the Dodgers and Angels.
- Topps recently unveiled a preview uncut sheet of Baseball cards on twitter that includes a sneak peak at some cards for Matt Kemp, Sandy Koufax and Jackie Robinson. See the pic below. I believe these cards are a part of an insert set for their upcoming flagship Baseball card set.
- An old friend report: Delwyn Young is drawing interest from MLB teams, via Chris Cotillo at CLNS Radio.com. He had double hernia surgery in June.
- Eric Stephen at True Blue LA is doing yeoman's work. He is writing individual biographies of every member of the 1988 Dodgers. He started off with Kirk Gibson yesterday, and Tim Belcher today. I wonder if he'll include former Dodgers GM Fred Claire in his biographies. I find his formation of that team to be one of the more interesting stories of that championship club.
- In this recent edition of putting the cart before the horse: Bae Joong-Hyun of the Korean Joongang Daily wonders if the Rookie of the Year award is possible for Ryu.
