It looks like the Dodgers, up and down the entire system, will be eating well from now on. Gabe Kapler, the new Director of Player Development, has brought along his passion for healthy eating and living. From what I understand, ballplayers will now be served meals similar to the menu shown above from Los Angeles to every minor league team in the franchise. BTW, the photo above was tweeted out by Jon Weisman at Dodger insider yesterday afternoon, and it shows that days lunch menu.
Below are some more links to check out:
- As you know Sandy Koufax has made it out to Camelback Ranch and Jon Weisman at Dodger Insider shares some quotes from him from his first day. Check them out here. On Julio Urias:
“He’s impressive. He’s very impressive. This is the first time I’ve seen him throw. It’s a long way from the driving range to the golf course, and it’s a long way from side sessions to the game. He has all the requisites — we just have to see what happens. Physically, he’s very impressive.”
- Brett Anderson shares his first "real" Dodger moment on twitter:

- Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, "Dodgers confident Joel Peralta will be ready for opening day."
- Just another example of the kind of wacky things that happen during Spring Training. Apparently the entire Dodger clubhouse was debating the color of that ugly dress that hit the interwebs like a flash flood yesterday. Via Matthew Moreno at Dodgers Nation, "Dodgers, MLB Players Join ‘What Colors Are The Dress?’ Twitter Debate." For the record, i see "white and gold."
- Following on Ellis' recent retirement, Stacie Wheeler at Lasorda's Lair writes; "Remembering Mark Ellis's Biggest Dodger Moments."
- I guess some folks are having a difficult time with Enrique "Kike" Hernandez's nickname, via his twitter (what a bunch of dolts!):
