Blog Kiosk: 7/31/2020 - Dodgers Links & News - #FreeJoeKelly

I just had to make these. Featured here are a handful of Joe Kelly "pouty face" fantasy custom Baseball cards. Enjoy.

#FreeJoeKelly -- Via Alden Gonzalez at ESPN:
"I don't think anyone's too happy about it," Pollock said. "It's not our call; it's obviously the commissioner's call. But I don't think anyone's too happy about that. I just don't think it's very good feel on his end."
"There's a lot of guys that were upset about the severity of it," Roberts said, noting that Kelly never admitted to throwing at Bregman on purpose.

  • FYI, The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF) launched a special online auction at featuring game-used jerseys with MLB’s Black Lives Matter patch from Opening Day with net proceeds to benefit the California Funders for Boys & Men of Color Southern California: Our Kids, Our Future Fund (CFBMoC). Pics of the Cody Bellinger and Dave Roberts jersey's are below.
  • So, remember when Will Smith hit that home run that hit a cardboard fan in the face? Well, Smith gave the kid an autographed bat. It says, "Sorry I hit you in the face! Go Dodgers! Will Smith." Check it out below, via u/doyersbeast on Reddit:
  • WTF! Via Mike Oz at Yahoo Sports -- "Report: MLB, union agree to make doubleheader games 7 innings long during 2020 season." They are bastardizing the game!
  • FYI -- The Dodgers called up left-handed pitcher Victor González and have designated outfielder Terrance Gore for assignment.
  • I saw this graphic on Reddit and thought I should share it here, via u/santaanas on Reddit. See it on the right.
  • Per David Adler at -- "Corey Seager's hot start is one to watch."
Seager is white-hot to start the season. He hit .320/.393/.520 with a .913 OPS in Opening Week 2020, capping it off with his first home run against the Astros. Then he got Week 2 started by belting another homer in Thursday's series opener against the D-backs, lefty-lefty off Robbie Ray, no less. That brought his stat line to .321/.406/.607 with a 1.013 OPS.
When you see Seager hitting like this, you remember why he was a blue-chip prospect, a phenom who was supposed to headline the next Dodgers playoff dynasty and a part of the ascendant generation of superstar shortstops alongside Francisco Lindor, Carlos Correa, Javier Báez and Trevor Story.
