Blog Kiosk: 3/14/2014 - Dodgers Links - Arruebarrena is Here, Billinglsey is Progressing and Manny

Erisbel Arruebarrena has just arrived to the Dodger camp.  As you may recall, Arruebarrena is a recent Cuban signee.  Check out my past story about him here.  And, you pronounce his last name thusly: "Arr-ru-eh-BAHR-ena".  Pic above via @Dodgers on twitter.  BTW, Jon SooHoo shares even more pics focused on his arrival that you can see here.
“I’ve been fortunate to have a really good rehab,” Billingsley said. “It’s a pretty boring process, so it’s nice to be able to think about getting out there again to face hitters.” 
"I use myself as an example to my son who is in college, playing baseball: 'Look what daddy went through because daddy didn't do things right.' When you do things right, you don't have to look back. You always look forward.
"With Zach you see more of the old-style kid coming up, who is quiet in the clubhouse, going about his business. He's just working on his game all the time, asking a lot of questions, paying attention and learning. It's what you like about him," manager Don Mattingly said last week. "I just like his composure, and pretty much everything about him."
  • Bob Lemke tells us about the day a Texas Leaguer belted 8 home runs in 8 at-bats in one game in 1902.  I kid you not!
  • This might not matter to you, but this Kings fan is more than elated.  I'm ecstatic.  Via a tweet from Helene Elliott of the LA Times, Bob Miller will be back for another year.
