Blog Kiosk: 3/25/2017 - Dodgers Links - Some Spring Odds and Ends

Now this is the way to do it.

This Dodger couple decided to get some help from the Dodgers at Camelback Ranch for a special announcement.  They were looking for the perfect way to let everyone know about a new addition to the family, and fortunately caught the eye of Justin Turner -- as you can see in the photo above.


Now, you know they've got to name the little tyke Justin.... Or Justine.

The above photos via @Dodgers on twitter.  Below are more links to check out:
“My dad told me to stick it out,’’ Roberts said. “To give it another try.’’
Waymon Roberts urged his son to play baseball, not the pity card.
“You can’t feel sorry for yourself,’’ Roberts said. “I needed a wake-up call.’’
  • Take a look at Matt Kemp's home in Poway in San Diego County that is for sale here.  It has not sold while listed, so he'll sell it through an auction.  Via Ken Stone at; "Ex-Dodgers star Matt Kemp whiffs on mansion sale, sets auction."  Below are some pics of the mansion.
  • Via Steve Milton at the Hamilton Spectator; "Being There: One boating death reminds us of another: Tim Crews walked up and spilled the secret to how the Dodgers would win the 1988 World Series."
"Wanna know how we're going to get them out?" Crews asked partway into a genial, casual conversation.
Um, yes, I do. And any other trade secrets you'd care to share?
Crews pointed out that McGwire clearly had a little trouble stretching for the ball, probably because of a stiff back and also because he stood kind of pigeon-toed. And Canseco — who had just become the first player to hit 40 home runs and steal 40 bases — also had trouble down and away, but AL pitchers hadn't been able to exploit it enough. The Dodgers, and Orel Hershiser, certainly planned to. Bust 'em inside, then hook 'em away.
“I feel great this year. I feel like I have the life back on my fastball,” Morrow said. “I got back last August, and my average fastball was around my career norm. But I just didn’t feel like I had that extra gear, that I feel like I do this year.”
"No matter what, I'm glad I did it," Hernandez said. "It was a lot of fun, the most fun I've had playing baseball so far. I might have taken a few more at-bats if I was here. At the same time, I was doing what they need me to do during the season -- play against lefties, pinch-hit against lefties.
