Blog Kiosk: 1/9/2020 - Dodgers Links & News - Some Odds and Ends

Check out who made it to a Kings game last night. Rams running back Todd Gurley III is wearing the Kings jersey in the middle. To his left is Gavin Lux, Matt Beaty and Dodger prospect Kody Hoese (on the bottom right). I believe the guys to the right of Gurley are also Rams players, but I'm not all that familiar with the team. Photo via @Dodgers on twitter.

Unfortunately, these guys couldn't help the Kings on the ice. They were defeated by the Dallas Stars, 2-1 -- their third loss in a row.

There are two themes that link the Astros and Red Sox together in these matters: championships, and Alex Cora. Other teams, like the Yankees, abused the video-replay room, but only two teams won an astounding number of games over their championship seasons with Cora in leadership positions. And Cora has his Boston job in large part due to the success he experienced in his Houston job. But now it looks like he’s about to get two very unpleasant performance reviews.

The right-handed Pepiot has reportedly put up good Trackman numbers, which the Dodgers value highly.
“Teams that are into the analytic stuff are (more) interested because I have a high spin rate on my pitches,” Pepiot said. 
Always an aggressive pitcher, Pepiot says he appreciates how the Dodgers emphasize throwing strikes. 
“Some pitchers throw around the zone,” says Pepiot. “The strike zone is our friend. We want to win the race to two strikes.”
