  • Newest Dodger Todd Coffey is a twitterer. Go ahead and follow him.
  • The Dodgers had a fruitful year when it came to helping out the community. Check out the Dodgers 2011 Community Report featuring all of the good deeds by the organization in 2011.
  • Check out Left Field Pavilions great graphic called "Wheel of Misfortune."
  • Bill Shaikin of the LA Times unveils another Dodger bidder, Jared Kushner, who happens to be the son-in-law to Donald Trump. I agree with Mike at Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness assessment that we do not want "the Trump" to be anywhere near the Dodgers.
  • Josh Macciello made a $2.2Billion offer for the Dodgers. What? Via Mike Szymanski at Studio City Patch.
  • David Laurila at FanGraphs has a great interview with Dodgers scouting guru Logan White.
    “Looking at the [biomechanical] factors, I felt that Kershaw had the best delivery, the best mechanics, the best arm action, of the four. There are obviously other factors when you‘re looking at someone. A guy can have great mechanics and a terrible makeup, or he may simply not have the arm speed. There are different variables that come into play, but biomechanics are certainly a big factor for us and we liked Kershaw’s mechanics.
  • Beckett talks about a new hobby related reality show called "Ball Boys." Think pawn stars meet Baseball cards.
  • Zach Hample was at the Hall of Fame and has plenty of photos to prove it.
  • Check out Part 2 of the video featuring Cheech Marin and Rev Halofan talking Baseball at Halos Heaven.
  • Bob Lemke writes about 19th Century ballplayer Phenomenal Smith.
  • REA Auctions shares an item that will be on auction later this year that is just fascinating. It's a book that once belonged to Baseball pioneer Alexander Cartwright, and it may have played a large part in the creation of organized Baseball.
