Only two Dodger prospect are included in the set - Darnell Sweeney and Grant Holmes.  Check out all of their available cards below.

Blog Kiosk: 12/22/2014 - Dodger Links - Kershaw, Pederson and Andrew Friedman

With Spring Training around the corner I really get a kick out these vintage press photos of the Dodgers in Vero Beach.  Featured above is Carl Furillo hurdling over a bat held by Gene Hermanski and Duke Snider.  It was taken on March 3, 1951 and was originally found on eBay, here

Below are some links to check out:
"Awards aren't why we play the game, but I don't take it lightly," Kershaw said. "When fans chant that [MVP] stuff, it's an amazing feeling. I remember a few times pitching, and fans at Dodger Stadium would chant M-V-P -- that's unbelievable. It really is chilling. I don't know if I'll ever get used to that."
“I’m excited (about next season),” Pederson said. “All you can ask for is an opportunity, and I hope I get one. So I’m just preparing myself to win a job. I don’t expect anything to be handed to me.”
"We'll take some time in spring training and assess [Pederson]. We'll get a feel for him in camp and how he's handling things," Friedman said on Friday. "There will be a discussion we'll have with the staff, and I'm sure it will be an ongoing discussion we have between now and the last game in March."
  • Via Stacie Wheeler at Lasorda's Lair, "Dodgers Continue to Add Catching Depth, Sign Minor Leaguer Ali Solis."
  • Via Ron Cervenka at Think Blue LA, "Andre Ethier defying trade odds again – for now."
  • Listen to Andrew Friedman talk about sending Matt Kemp to San Diego and adding Yasmani Grandal, Jimmy Rollins and Howie Kendrick to the lineup.
