I don't want to work
I want to bang on the drum all day
I don't want to play
I just want to bang on the drum all day

  • Via William Boor at, "Uter brings intensity from football days to the diamond."
Dodgers prospect Kam Uter had to give up his football career to begin his professional baseball career, but he didn't abandon everything he learned on a football field.

"I didn't bring my football mentality last year, but this year I'm bringing my football mentality," Uter said. "I don't care who it is [that I'm facing], in football you don't care who is guarding you, you see a big linebacker across the middle and you're not scared. I'm bringing a new intensity on the mound now and I hype myself up just like I'm in a football game. I bring a lot more intensity now."
  • Four Dodger players make Baseball America's "Midseason Top 50 Prospects" list; including Corey Seager at #1.  Check out the list here.
  • As you surely know by now, Joc Pederson will participate in the All-Star Game Home Run Derby.  Hopefully, he does better than our representative from last year.  Below is the announced bracket for the contest.
  • Night Owl Cards shares with us "10 Awesomely Awful Airbrushed Dodgers" cards.
