- Amanda McCarthy, wife of Brandon, shared a pic of her husband as a young Dodger fan on Instagram (link here), so I decided to make a fantasy Baseball card using the photo. Check it out on the right.
- Yasmani Grandal made an interesting comment about pitcher Kenta Maeda after a throwing session yesterday. Via Ken Gurnick at MLB.com, "Maeda unleashes 4-pitch mix in BP session."
"The reason I compare him to Greinke is that he's got a four-pitch mix," Yasmani Grandal said after catching Maeda's two innings. "Obviously, they are two different pitchers. But you can build a game plan around four pitches and be creative, that's the comparison."

- Listen to former Dodgers pitcher Dan Haren on the Jonah Keri podcast (dated 2/26/2016 Link Here) where he talks a bit about his time with the Dodgers. (Hat Tip: r/clarkbarniner on Reddit)
