Blog Kiosk: 3/28/2016 - Dodgers Links - Frias, Lee and Kenta Maeda

This past Saturday was Dodgers Pride Night at the LA Kings game, and I was there to take it all in.  Later today I hope to have a bunch of pics I took from the evening; including a brief look at the pregame Dodgers-themed Kings jersey's they sold at auction.  Featured above is Kings goalie Jonathan Quick in Dodger "Whites," pic via the Kings on twitter.

Below are more links to check out:
"I threw batting practice to the starting pitchers and they were all sharing Maeda's bat, a Japanese bat. They were thinking it was the arrow, not the Indian," Roberts recalled. "There were a lot of home runs with that bat."

That prompted some good-natured ribbing to get Maeda to use a new bat.

"So he used an American bat, and I told him if he hit a home run with a different bat out of five swings, I'll buy him dinner," Roberts explained. "The first ball I threw over the plate, he hit a homer."
"He's got weapons, had a good camp, just get him over here in a big league game," said manager Dave Roberts. "Whether he's in the mix -- that remains to be seen."
“There were some regulars in there for the Giants in their lineup,” (Dave) Roberts said. “To see the at-bats that they put against him, and to see how they went after him and the results, that was some information for us.”
