Blog Kiosk: 8/30/2019 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

Ryu got rocked again. Per Jake Rill at
“I understand that it’s three in a row that he hasn’t thrown the way he’s thrown all year, but it’s something for us where it’s not too far off,” Roberts said. “I think, just seeing the way the baseball comes out of his hand, velocity’s still there, missing just off. I don’t think it’s a fatigue thing, just the way he looks and talking to him, he’s very strong. I don’t see that there’s a drop-off in stuff, I think the drop-off is just a little bit of that command.”
I hope you're right, Doc.

  • This Day in Dodger HistoryIn 1918 the Dodgers and Giants play a 56-minute game at the Polo Grounds that saw New York beat Brooklyn, 1-0In 1952 former Dodger infielder and future Hall of Famer Arky Vaughan dies in a fishing accident. He and a friend drowned in a lake near Eagleville, CA when their boat capsized. In 1953 Roy Campanella tied a NL record for RBI's by a catcher during a season at 122. He did it by going 4-for-5 with five RBI's and three runs scored against the Cardinals. Campy would finish the year with a Major League best 142 RBI's for a catcher. In 2015 Cubs hurler Jake Arrieta no-hit the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium, 2-0. It is the 12th no-hitter ever thrown at Chavez Ravine.
  • Happy Birthday, Bert TooleyKiki CuylerTommy Dean & Roberto Hernández!
  • Muncy news, via a tweet from Jorge Castillo:
  • Via JP JHoornstra at Press Enterprise -- "Gavin Lux will join the Dodgers soon, but his role is to be determined." Given Muncy's recent injury I would be surprised if he is given an opportunity to earn a job now.
“I do think having him here in some capacity probably is a certainty,” Manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday. “We just haven’t decided to what extent.”
  • I can't think of a better pregame ceremony. Per KFOR-TV and K. Qeurry at KFOR -- "40 people to become U.S. citizens before Oklahoma City Dodgers game." Congrats!
  • Via Anthony Castrovince at -- "Players poll: Who has MLB's best uniforms?" The Dodgers tied for first here, with guess who?
Mariners outfielder Jay Bruce: “There’s a purity to it.”
Cardinals outfielder Jose Martinez: “That Dodger Blue is something.”
  • This weeks 2019 Topps Throwback Thursday set features the 2002 Topps American Pie design and includes Cody Bellinger as an 'American Slugger." Go here to check it out and order. A pic of the Bellinger card is on the right.
  • Michael Clair at Cut4 -- "These are the best Topps card designs of all time." I do not entirely agree with his rankings, but I do appreciate that he included a bunch of sets rarely ever mentioned.
  • On Sunday, September 29th the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation will host their Sixth Annual Biofreeze Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation Run at Dodger Stadium, and participants will receive a limited-edition LADF run bobblehead of Kenley Jansen.
