- Mark Langill at Dodger Insider wrote about Hank Aaron's birthday yesterday by recalling the 715th career home run he hit against the Dodgers in 1974. BTW, A portrait of Hank will hang at the National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, via Mark Townsend at Big League Stew. You should see the portrait. It's an amazingly realistic painting.
- Tim Keown at ESPN The Magazine writes a great piece on Puig, "What's next for Yasiel Puig?"
Puig nodded his head the way he knew he should. But a thick moment passed before he told Colletti, "Where I come from, there is no tomorrow. We embrace today."
- This should be seen as a move to improve infield depth. Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, "Justin Turner reportedly signs minor league deal with Dodgers". BTW, Justin is on twitter: @redturn2. Follow him here. Justin is from Long Beach and played college ball at CSU Fullerton.
Excited to officially be a #Dodger!!! I'm looking forward to a great year & the chance to play so close to home. #LA #SoCal @Dodgers #Blue
