Blog Kiosk: 6/2/2020 - Dodgers Links & News - Some Odds and Ends

Below are Some links to check out:
  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1894 Brooklyn hurler Ed Stein pitched a seven inning no-hitter against the Chicago Colts (Cubs), 1-0. I am unsure as to why the game was called early. In 1995 Japanese All-Star Hideo Nomo wins his first Major League game after five no-decisions. He would go eight innings, walked three and strike out six batters to defeat the Mets, 2-1, at Dodger Stadium. In 2017 Clayton Kershaw records his 2,000th career strikeout -- blanking Brewers infielder Jonathan Villar. BTW, Villar had a very bad day. He struck out three times against Kershaw. Also, the Dodgers combined for a total of 26 strikeouts during the 12-inning game, while the Brewers blanked 16 batters. Overall, both teams set a record for total strikeouts in a game at 42 (boxscore).

  • Dodgers response, via twitter:
  • Please check out Jon Weisman's fine piece on the recent riots at Dodger Insider -- "My message for #BlackoutTuesday." Go here.
  • Video: Austin Barnes chats with John Hartung about life in quarantine (video link).
'Baseball is Important to Americans, the World'
  • Check out this website. A buddy of mine, a Dodger fan, has started a site with a Angels fan called Top Fan Rivalry. They will be debating each other on whose club is the best club. Obviously, the Angels fan is over-matched. 
  • Via Ron Blum at AP -- "AP source: MLB players offer 114-game season, no more $ cuts."
  • Players proposed a 114-game regular season Sunday, up from 82 in management’s offer, a person familiar with the plan told The Associated Press. Done that way, the World Series could extend past Thanksgiving.
    Opening day would be June 30 and the regular season would end Oct. 31, nearly five weeks after the Sept. 27 conclusion that MLB’s proposal stuck to from the season’s original schedule. The union offered scheduling flexibility to include more doubleheaders as baseball crams the games into 123 days, leaving little room for days off.
  • Tracy Hackler at Panini America's blog shares a bunch of preview pics of their upcoming 2020 Diamond Kings Baseball brand. Below are pics of a Cody Bellinger, Clayton Kershaw, Jackie Robinson and Steve Garvey cards. The 1st Off The Line versions will available to order directly online from Panini now. Go here.
