Blog Kiosk: 10/23/2019 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

Stanley (Frenchie) Bordagaray, outfielder, slides into home plate, covered by catcher Walter Millies, during a spring training game of the Brooklyn Dodgers at Clearwater, Fla.

They choose their course, as owners and leaders of the franchise, as regular folks in their community, as — primarily — men. From that insular circle arose the midlevel executive, surrounded by men in various stages of cheerful intoxication, in a beery and testosterone-flexed room meant to honor an American League pennant. This is the environment in which Brandon Taubman reportedly decided his course would be to settle an old score or flaunt his place among the real athletes or ply the advantages of numbers and cigar smoke. You might call that cowardly.
