Blog Kiosk: 1/13/2014 - Dodgers Links - Dodgers are Finalist for Tanaka

They are in the midst of preparing the Dodger Stadium field for ice hockey.  Today, the NHL will arrive with their equipment in order to build the ice rink.  Pic via @Dodgers on twitter.
“I’m a big, big Dodger fan. Have been all my life. My first Dodger game I was 5 years old. It was 1961 at the Coliseum, and I loved going. Wally Moon was my favorite player back then because as a 5-year-old, the name ‘Moon, Wally Moon’ was so interesting. And the ‘Moon Shots’ he used to hit to left field. It was fantastic. And then I was here in 1962 when Dodger Stadium opened up. It’s hard to believe it’s been 50 years.”
  • Via Dustin Nosler at Fellin' Kinda Blue, "Dodgers need A.J. Ellis and Tim Federowicz to improve pitch-framing".  I disagree with the notion that advanced statistics guys are the reason for an emphasis on pitch framing.  That's just false.  The art of pitch framing has always been a key skill taught to catchers-particularly in the Dodgers organization.  It's just that stats guys are getting better at quantifying it.  As for our catchers needing to get better at it, I couldn't agree more.
