Blog Kiosk: 8/17/2013 - Dodgers Links - A Fantasy Brian Wilson Dodger Card, Mitch Poole and Mattingly Knows Streaks


Since Dodger photographer Jon SooHoo shared some recent pics of Brian Wilson in Dodger Blue I had to make my own fantasy Baseball card of him.  Check it about above.  Unfortunately, I didn't have any horizontal card templates with me, so I went with what I had.  I used a 1987 Topps design and a photo by Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2013.  Check out more pics from Jon here.
"In the morning when I get here, I’m pretty much helping my crew sort things out for that day. We’ve got some towels and things that need to be folded still, we’ve got mail that comes in that we’ve got to pick up and deliver, I’m doing some errands… getting toiletries and stuff together for the bathroom. I used to have to get all their food together but now I have it all brought in by truck. I actually have a chef now who does all the cooking so all that’s taken care of. Any odds and ends we need to get, like today I was picking up razor blades and stuff for them to shave with."
The most impressive part of his game, though, may be a tool that isn't physical, but mental -- his ability to adjust. Let's take a look at his season so far in segments. 
“I played on a team in high school that won 59 straight games so I want to win every day – and I think it’s possible,” Mattingly said when asked if the Dodgers’ historic numbers have begun to amaze him. “Today’s gone. We’ve got Kershaw going tomorrow. We’ve got a chance to win tomorrow. You get caught up in the numbers – you’re not supposed to win like this. You’re not supposed to do it. 
“In my mind, you can win every night. Sometimes you get caught up in saying, ‘Oh, we’re not supposed to be doing this. This isn’t supposed to happen.’ … Not necessarily.”
