Blog Kiosk: 2/20/2018 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

I like this new motto.

This morning Dodger broadcaster Alanna Rizzo, via her twitter, shared the clubs motto for the upcoming season: "LA: Determined."

Below are more links to check out:
Buehler is being "slow-played" this spring, manager Dave Roberts said, in part because of the muscle injury suffered in workouts, in part because management wants to avoid a spike in innings pitched from the 88 2/3 of last season. Buehler pitched only five innings in 2016 coming off Tommy John surgery.
  • Per Ken Gurnick at MLB.com; "Tough Turner admired by Dodgers teammates: Third baseman refuses to use injuries as excuse, earns respect as team leader."
"I was fine," said Turner. "Nothing wrong with me. I was 100 percent. Yep. I was fine."
No, he wasn't. The rumor was that Turner hurt his back in the weight room between the clinching of the National League Championship Series and the start of the World Series. He missed a team workout, but two days later started and homered in the World Series opener. He took a ground ball off his leg in Game 4 and served as designated hitter in Game 5. Overall, he hit .160 with two RBIs in seven games against the Astros after hitting .387 with 12 RBIs in the first eight games of the postseason. 
"He was banged up," manager Dave Roberts said. "He probably won't share with me or with you. But from the trainers, he was very banged up. But he'll never admit to it. He still won't. That's his character and that's what's so cool about him."

  • The 2018 Topps Now brand is just getting started. They have announced their first set of the season and every team in the league will have one. It's called "Road to Opening Day," and it features a 16-card team set (including one autographed mystery card). Go here to check it out and order.
