I'm certain this is not news to any of you. Vin Scully will continue with the Dodgers for the 2016 Baseball season. Per a Dodger press release:
“I talked it over with my wife, Sandi, and my family and we’ve decided to do it again in 2016,” Scully said. “There’s no place like home and Dodger Stadium and we look forward to being a part of it with all of our friends.”It'll be his 67th season with the franchise. On a sad note, Vin also said that next season may very well be his last. Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA:
"I would say realistically, and I don't want any headlines, but I would say realistically that next year would be the last year," Scully said. "How long can you go on fooling people? I would say, 'Dear God, if you give me next year, I'll hang it up."The photo above via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2015. Below are more links to check out:
- Wha...? Via Adrienne Bankert at ABC7.com, "Cuban baseball player sleeps outside Dodger Stadium in hopes of making his dreams a reality." This is either the most absurd thing ever, or Loah Linares is brilliant. I'm leaning towards absurd.
"If I didn't know how great a baseball player I know I am, I wouldn't be here trying to show off my skills to somebody," Linares said.
Watch the youtube video below featuring Linares. I can't help but think we're all being trolled.
- Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, "Dodgers notes: Howie Kendrick needs extra time, the plan for 3B, Corey Seager."
"Howie has kind of plateaued a little bit, where he can run 90-95 percent but isn't yet all the way there," manager Don Mattingly. "We were kind of hoping he'd be playing baseball by Sunday, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. So it's probably a few extra days for Howie."
With regards to Seager, Mattingly acknowledged that he's though about him coming in to play 3rd base.
