  • This Day In Dodgers HistoryIn 1932 the Brooklyn Dodgers traded for future Hall of Famer Hack Wilson (during the tail end of his career) from the Cardinals for a minor leaguer and some cash. In 1962 Jackie Robinson, along with Bob Feller, are selected for the Baseball Hall of Fame in their first years of eligibility. In 2017 the Dodgers traded pitching prospect Jose De Leon to the Tampa Bay Rays for infielder Logan Forsythe.

  • I loved the 'Think Blue' sign too! Bring it back! Via Ron Cervenka at Think Blue LA -- "‘Sign-Stealing’ Nothing New for Dodger Fans."
  • Via KCAL9 -- "Dodgers’ Enrique Hern├índez’s Twitter Temporarily Vanishes After Apparently Being Hacked."
  • Via Darren Hartwell at NBC Boston -- "Rob Manfred squashes notion that Dodgers deserve Red Sox' World Series title."
"There's a couple of problems with (that)," Manfred said Wednesday during a TV appearance on FOX Business. "We haven't concluded our investigation with the Red Sox, so it's a little hard to take the trophy away from somebody who hasn't yet been found to do something wrong. We don't know what the outcome of that is going to be."
...
"The second flaw is, whatever the impact of the sign-stealing was, it could have changed who was in the World Series. (It's) absolutely unclear that the Dodgers would have been the World Series champion.
  • Per Dustin Nosler at Dodgers Digest -- "Looking at Baseball Prospectus’ and Baseball America’s Top 10 Dodgers lists."
  • Here's some Kings news. Via Jon Rosen at LA Kings Insider -- "Manning, Keith Gretzky Statements Following Monday's Racist Slur; Imama Statement." Things got heated and words were said.
Boko Imama: “I have taken some time to reflect on what transpired on the ice against Bakersfield Monday night. What happened is unfortunate for everyone. No matter how intense or heated a game gets, there is no room for this in our game and no excuse. I am very proud to be an African Canadian hockey player and to stand for all other players that are in the same situation as me.
