Blog Kiosk: 12/4/2015 - Dodger Links - Some Odds and Ends as we Wait for Greinke

I can't get enough of these vintage Brooklyn Robins checkerboard flannel uniforms.  They're fantastic.  Featured above is an original International Film Service press photo of the two Robins/Dodgers backstops tasked with handling the pitchers during the 1916 World Series, as found on eBay.  On the left is Otto Miller and on the right is John "Chief" Meyers.  Best yet, there are a couple of gentlemanly chaps in the background with their own version of an early-20th century photobomb.

Below are more links to check out:
The real impressive thing about Greinke is how well-rounded he is. He’s an incredible pitcher, sure, and that’s what’s most important, but a part of that comes out of his preparation. He’s also just about unparalleled in terms of his focus, and his control over himself. He pairs his pitching stuff with his pitching intelligence. For a pitcher, he’s become a pretty good hitter, doing plenty to help his own case. And Greinke is an outstanding defender. I don’t think this counts as some sort of revelation — Greinke’s won back-to-back Gold Glove awards, and he’s won those for a reason. But we can go a little bit deeper. Greinke’s terrific in the field. It saves him several runs every year.
  • Awkward!  Considering that rumor about the Dodgers highest paid player (Kershaw) asking Dodger management to trade Puig this bit of news about an upcoming MLB tour in Cuba should be interesting, via a tweet from Tim Brown:
