Blog Kiosk: 6/28/2017 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends


After recently being sent to the bullpen, Kenta Maeda was masterful in his spot start last night. He went seven strong innings, yielded just four hits, recorded six strike outs and gave up zero walks for his sixth victory of the season. Per Ken Gurnick and Kaelen Jones at MLB.com:
"The last few outings, he's been aggressive and filling the strike zone," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of Maeda. "With his mix, putting hitters on the defensive, there just weren't many good swings they got off him." 
Maeda is responding positively to the pressure that comes with being on the Dodgers pitching staff. Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“There’s a sense of urgency overall,” Maeda said through an interpreter. “I didn’t start the year on a good note. Regardless if I’m in the bullpen or starting, there’s a sense of urgency I feel to produce results.”

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1907 then Yankees catcher Branch Rickey (who would be known for signing Jackie Robinson decades later) saw twelve Senator runners steal a base on him. In 1969 the Dodgers and Don Drysdale shut down the Padres at Jack Murphy Stadium by the lopsided score of 19-0. They break a LA Dodgers all-time record for runs scored in a game. In 2008 the Dodgers were no-hit by the Angels (Jered Weaver and Jose Arredondo), but still won the game, 1-0. The lone run was scored in the fifth inning when a couple of errors and a sacrifice fly by Blake DeWitt scores the eventual winning run.

I guess we can't expect to win them all, but it would've been nice to take the first game of the Freeway Series against the Angels. Per Ken Gurnick and Kaelen Jones at MLB.com:
"That's the great thing about this game, that's why we play," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of the flipped script. "Tip your hat to Nolasco, he threw a great baseball game. He's a veteran pitcher who had a really good night."
It figures that a former Dodger would break our ten-game winning streak.

Welcome to the Dodgers, Mike Freeman!


Nearly a month after being picked up by the Dodgers on the waiver wire from Seattle, versatile infielder/outfielder Mike Freeman was recalled to Los Angeles to fill a void created when outfielder Franklin Gutierrez was placed on the 10-day disabled list with an episode of ankylosis spondylitis. Mike Freeman will wear #37 for the Dodgers.

As you know, he came into yesterdays game as a pinch-hitter for reliever Luis Avilan in the fourth inning, and subsequently grounded out to short during the eight pitch at-bat.

2017 Topps Now -- #291 -- Bellinger's 24 Homers Most Since 1933


Cody Bellinger is not human. He's some sort of bat-wielding cyborg with a swing a smooth as silk and strength that you only hear about when speaking of the gods. Cody is like a mythical beast we all wish for, but never expect to see. He's become a game-changer, and if not for his sudden emergence we would likely not be anywhere near the top of the standings like we are today.

As you know, Cody Bellinger walloped two more home runs yesterday afternoon to reach a league high 24, and for his efforts he was awarded his 11th 2017 Topps Now card of the season. The card celebrates the most home runs in the 1st half of the season by an rookie since 1933. Go here to check it out and order. BTW, Cody was also named the National League Player of the Week this morning. Per a Dodger press release:

That game was unreal. Not only did the Dodgers capture their 10th win in a row, but they did it in the most unusual way. Trailing by five runs in the third inning they stormed back to win, 12-6, with the help of the home run ball (including two by Bellinger) and four wild pitches by the Rockies most consistent middle reliever. In fact, those wild throws resulted in five runs. Per Thomas Harding and Joshua Thornton at MLB.com:
"Their guys were on the ropes," Roberts said. "We didn't even give them any extra outs on the bases. We kept grinding and made those guys continue to make pitches. You look at what we did from the first game of the series, what we're doing to pitching staffs, there's a relentless kind of approach to what we're doing."
And to add insult to injury Kenley Jansen hit a double to drive in the first RBI of his career before recording his 17th save of the season. Per Matthew Mesa at Dodger Insider:
“It was a crazy game,” Kenley Jansen said. “I’ve never seen this before.”

2017 Topps Museum Collection - All the Dodgers Base Cards

The newest Baseball card product out this week is Topps 2017 Museum brand. It is a high-end product that features one autograph or relic card per pack. A box of of four packs will run you about $200. Go here for a complete checklist. Below are all of the Dodger base cards.

Blog Kiosk: 6/23/2017 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends


This series against the Mets was ridiculous. The Dodgers set a new franchise record when they collectively hit 15 homers during the four-game set. The last of which scored the game winning run to help the Dodgers sweep the Mets. It was hit by Joc Pederson on the very first pitch of the seventh inning. I think it's safe to say, after a crushing collision in the outfield a month ago, that he is on the mend. Per Cary Osborne at Dodger Insider:
“I think he’s getting there, and the one gauge for me is seeing his plate discipline,” said Dodger manager Dave Roberts. “And over the last 10 games he’s not offering at everything moving forward. So when balls are out of the strike zone he’s doing a good job taking. And he’s getting on base at an incredible rate right now. The next piece is when he gets balls in the strike zone to do what he did tonight.”

Vintage Jackie Robinson Photos at RMY Auction


Featured here are a couple fantastic vintage photos I came across at a recent RMY Auction that I wanted to pass long. As you can see, they both highlight Jackie Robinson. Above is the multi-faceted athlete on the hardwood floor. (auction link)

The auction house had speculated that it is from 1950 and is related to the filming of the biopic "The Jackie Robinson Story." It sold for a lofty $943.05. A princely sum, no doubt.

The below photo is just as fantastic -- even though it tells a rather sad story if your a Dodger fan. (auction link) It sold for a far more reasonable $78.77.

The Dodgers have now won six games in a row and sit atop of the National League West. Their lead is just half a game over the Rockies, but it's nice that all of their efforts are bearing fruit. And it's doubly nice that Yasiel Puig is beginning to contribute once again. He launched a massive home run last night that effectively put the lights out in the Mets clubhouse. It was so big Yasiel could do nothing but admire his masterpiece.  Of course, the whining masses had to complain. Per ESPN:
"I don't think he knows what having respect for the game is," Flores (Mets first baseman) said. "We're playing horrible right now. We don't need his [behavior]. He disrespected us."
To which Puig responded:
"If that's the way he feels, it might be a result of them not playing so well," Puig said.
Doh!

That was a nice simple little burn -- use Flores' own word to show how stupid this all is.

  • This Day in Dodgers History: In 1936 Reds outfielder Ival Goodman hit a three-run home run at Ebbets Field that lands and stays on top of the Schaefer Beer scoreboard in right field. Rules at the time dictate that it is still considered in play, so Goodman rounded the bases for the easiest inside-the-park home run ever. In 1947 Reds pitcher Ewell Blackwell, after having thrown a no-hitter his last time out, lost out on throwing a second consecutive no-no when Dodgers second baseman Eddie Stanky single with one out in the ninth inning. In 1959 Sandy Koufax struck out 16 Phillies batters to set a new record for strikeouts in a night game.

Brooklyn Dodgers Goodies at Lelands - Mullin Drawing, Koufax Jersey and the Movie "42"


It's not often that you see a Willard Mullin original in color, so when one crosses your view you've got to pay attention. Featured here is his classic depiction of the Brooklyn Dodger "Bum" in a heated exchange with with an uninterested umpire. (auction link) It is one of several Dodgers-related goodies currently up for auction at Lelands. Below are a couple more items I thought were worth noting.

2017 Topps Now -- #272 & #273 - Bellinger and Seager's Home Run Explosion


It's only fitting that the 10th Cody Bellinger 2017 Topps Now card of the year would celebrate an historic run that saw him hit ten home runs in ten days -- a first for a rookie in MLB history. Per Joshua Thornton at MLB.com:
"I'm having a blast," Bellinger said. "I think what really tops it off is how well we're playing as a team. It's fun to watch. It's fun to be around. We're just clicking on all cylinders."

Homers are starting to get contagious.

Last night was Corey Seager's turn with the round-tripper parade. He slugged three home runs and almost accomplished something that had never been done. He came close to recording the only "home run cycle" in Baseball history -- Seager recording one-run, two-run and three-run home runs. Amazingly, he had the chance to hit a grand slam to complete the feat when he came up with the bases loaded in the sixth inning, but lined out a deep left-centerfield. Per Joshua Thornton at MLB.com:
"It's just one of those nights where balls go where you want it to and you're putting good swings on it and they're going out of the park," Seager said.

2017 Topps Series 2 - The Dodgers Variation Cards

There are four short-printed Dodger variation cards available in packs of 2017 Topps Series 2. Take a look at all of them below. I have paired each one with its normal base version. Notably, Jackie Robinson and Sandy Koufax have replaced Yasiel Puig and Kenta Maeda, respectively, on their cards. They are referred to as Legends Variations.

I also thought it was very accurate of Topps to make sure that the "LA" logo for the Koufax card reflects what the logo actually looked like during his playing days. As you can see, the "LA" is much skinnier than it is today -- much like how my waste-line has ballooned in size as the years have gone by.

2017 Topps Now -- #270 -- Cody Bellinger Fastest to Reach 21 Homers


Cody Belling just keeps breaking records, and as long as he continues Topps will be sure to commemorate it. In fact, since he joined the Dodgers Topps has issued eight different 2017 Topps Now cards that include him -- which has got to be some kind of record in itself.

Well, now there are nine Topps Now cards.

Yesterday was bonkers.

Not only did staff ace Clayton Kershaw give up an uncharacteristic four home runs, but the evening also saw a home run parade by both clubs that resulted in a total of eight homers in the game. Two of which were slugged by fast-rising rookie Cody Bellinger. In fact, his two home runs give him 21 on the year - giving him his fifth multihomer game so far and the National League lead in the category after only 51 games as a major leaguer. Per Joshua Thornton at MLB.com:
"It's crazy," said Bellinger, who made his big league debut on April 25. "A month and a half ago, if you told me what I was gonna do, I'd probably call you crazy."
Despite the poor showing on the mound, Kershaw recorded his 10th victory of the season and the Dodgers have now won ten out of the past eleven games. Photo above via Joc Pederson on twitter. Below are more links to check out:
  • This Day in Dodgers History: In 1958 the Dodgers signed amateur free agent Willie Davis out of Roosevelt High School in Los Angeles. In 2000 the Dodgers traded infielder Jose Vizcaino to the Yankees for catcher Jim LeyritzIn 2008 the Dodgers are awarded the Award of Excellence star, which is placed in the Walk of Fame, for their significant contributions to the community by the Hollywood Historic Trust and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

Wiki Fun at the Giants Expense - Who's Your Daddy?


As a Dodger fan few things provide more joy than the schadenfreude at seeing the Giants do so poorly.

They are currently on pace to lose 100 games this season, and got absolutely shellacked by Rockies star third baseman Nolan Arenado yesterday afternoon. The kid was a one-bat wrecking-machine on Sunday. Not only did Nolan knock out his first "cycle" of his career at the plate, but he capped off the feat with a walk-off homer against Giants closer Mark Melancon to win the game.

And to add insult to injury, an enterprising fan decided to troll the Giants a bit on Wikipedia.

That person added the line,
"He is also the Father of the San Francisco Giants."
Doh!

Who's your daddy... Nolan's your daddy!

Kiké Hernández had quite a day yesterday. After having been a focus of a recent article (link here) about his father's winning battle against cancer, he went out and had a fantastic game on Father's Day. Kiké recorded two doubles, two walks and a game-saving catch in the eight inning to salvage the game. (Watch it here) Per Jeremy Vernon and Ken Gurnick at MLB.com:
"I was playing pretty shallow and Joey Votto is a good enough hitter that I didn't want him to shoot one the other way," said Hernandez. "The fans were talking a lot of trash, so if there was a ball hit anywhere near me, I had to catch it or throw him out at the plate. Off the bat I had a pretty good jump, but I didn't realize how shallow I was. I felt like I ran forever."

Dodgers First Round Pick Jeren Kendall Already has a Bunch of Cards

As member of the Team USA Collegiate Baseball team it is no surprise that the Dodgers 2017 first round pick, Jeren Kendall, already has a bunch of cards for fans and collectors to chase after. What I was surprised to find out is that he also has a couple cards from when he was just an high school prep star.

Featured below are all of the various cards issued for Jeren Kendal, and to start things off I share pics of a pair of 2013 Leaf Perfect Game cards. As you may know, this set was an inaugural issue that features the top 300 high school players in the country from an Perfect Game National Showcase event. Following that are a bunch of Panini cards featuring Kendall in a Team USA jersey.

Blog Kiosk: 6/16/2017 - Dodgers Links - Garvey at the Congressional Baseball Game


After all of the turmoil from the other day it was awfully nice that yesterdays annual Congressional Baseball Game turned out so well. A record crowd of almost 25,000 fans packed the stadiums lower bowl and cheered, rooted and gave standing ovations for just about everything. It was like Baseball has retaken its rightful place as America's unifying sport. BTW, Dodger legend Steve Garvey was also there to lend a hand and lead a prayer on the field before the game. Per Chuck Raasch at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
“Just here to support the guys and gals,” said Garvey, a long-time first baseman for the Los Angeles Dodgers. 
“It’s our national pastime,” he added. “If anything is bipartisan, it’s baseball.”
It is expected that the amount of money raised for charity, including literacy, Boys and Girls Clubs, and Capitol Police, will be near $1 million. As a side note, the final score from the match was very lopsided. The Dems defeated the Repubs 11-2. Photos above via Steve Garvey on his twitter.

BTW, the Dodgers six game winning was snapped yesterday afternoon. Oh well... Winning isn't everything. Below are more links to check out:
  • This Day in Dodgers History: In 1961 the Dodgers signed amateur free agent Roy Gleason. He would get a cup of coffee with the Dodgers in 1963 -- recording a double in his only at-bat and getting a World Series ring. Soon thereafter he would be drafted into the Army and be sent to Vietnam. Gleason would lose his World Series ring there, and becomes the only US Combat Veteran and former Major League Baseball player to receive "Special Congressional Recognition" for being awarded a "Purple Heart", a World Series Ring, and holding a "Perfect" Lifetime Major League Batting Average. In 1963 rookie pitcher Nick Willhite shut out the Cubs, 2-0, and become the first Los Angeles pitcher for throw a shutout in his Major League debut. In 1977 the Dodgers purchased right-handed reliever and Los Angeles native Bobby Castillo from the Kansas City Royals.
