Blog Kiosk: 7/16/2019 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

I can't help but smile at the thought of the Dodgers destroying the Phillies. It just warms my heart. Per Paul Casella at MLB,com:
“I drank two Red Bulls and took a lot of Advil," said Bellinger, who went 4-for-6 with two RBIs and four runs. "So I was feeling all right."
So, that's his secret.

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1936 the game between the Dodgers and Reds in Cincinnati is postponed due to a heat wave that crippled much of the Midwest. The extreme weather, exacerbated by the Dust Bowl, results in over 5,000 deaths in the United States. In 1948 Brooklyn agrees to a deal with the Giants that releases their manager, Leo Durocher, so that he may become the skipper for the Giants. Burt Shotten would take over the managerial position for the Dodgers. BTW, Phillies manager Ben Chapman, infamous for his racist tirade against Jackie Robinson, is fired by Philadelphia on this same day. In 2000 Dodgers skipper Davey Johnson is hospitalized after experiencing dizziness caused by an irregular heartbeat. Per a CBS story:
"He's very unhappy about being in the hospital," Dr. Mellman said. "And he's not very happy with me, because I told him to go to the hospital instead of coming to the game tonight. That's Davey Johnson."
The Heart and Hustle Award, the only award in Major League Baseball voted on by former players, is decided by Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association committees based on the player’s passion, desire and work ethic on and off the field.
“Max approaches each pitch and play as if it’s his last,” Dodger manager Dave Roberts said in a statement. “His grit and toughness epitomizes our entire organization.”
  • ICYMI: Dodger hurler Casey Sadler made his Dodger debut yesterday -- after having been called up earlier that day. Left-handed pitcher Zac Rosscup was designated for assignment.
  • Here's another promotion. Per Ron Cervenka at Think Blue LA -- "Feduccia Promoted to Rancho Cucamonga Quakes."
(Hunter) Feduccia returned to Great Lakes to begin the 2019 season and continued to tear up Midwest League pitching, slashing .288 / .399 / .457 / .856 with four home runs, 17 doubles and one triple, while driving in 31 runs. He also posted a .989 FPCT in his 45 games behind the plate (he served as the Loons DH twice); all of which led to his much-anticipated (and expected) promotion to Rancho Cucamonga on Monday.
