Last nights win against the Twins make it 10,000 franchise wins since joining the National League. Graphic above via Dodgers on tumblr. Bill Chuck at the Daily Gammons has more details, as well as, an explanation of some of the discrepancies regarding the Dodgers true win total.
- Via Cary Osborne at Dodger Insider, "Dodger minor league report: Week 4 — Starting pitching power." Eric Stephen at True Blue LA puts together a minor league report, as well.
- Via Jon Weisman on Dodger Insider, "The ballad of Hee Seop Choi." I do remember when Choi destroyed Twins pitching 9 years ago - If only he could have done that consistently versus other clubs.
- Via Chris Olds at Beckett tells us about, "Topps’ latest wall art series takes a look back at vintage MLB logos." It includes a great looking Brooklyn Dodgers logo superimposed on a vintage 1959 Topps Baseball card. See it on the right. They are limited to just 99 copies.
- Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, "Clayton Kershaw throws 5 innings in rehab start in Chattanooga."
"I think it went alright. I got my pitch count up there. With 87 [pitches], I would have liked to get through six or seven, but the goal was to get the pitch count up there," Kershaw told reporters after the game (per the Lookouts).
- Via Mark Simon at ESPNLosAngeles.com, "Greinke rolls through April again."
- An old friend alert: Via Steve Adams at MLB Trade Rumors, "At Least Five Teams Showing Strong Interest In Hanrahan." I'm actually surprised somebody hasn't thrown the Dodgers name in there - just for the heck of it.
