Dodgers Blog Kiosk: 7/13/2012

The seventh edition of the Dodgers Playbill debuts with a cover featuring Dodger outfielders Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier. See it above.  Be sure to click on any pic to embiggen.
  • Woo Hoo!!!  Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier are expected to be back in the Dodgers lineup tonight!
  • FYI, Matt Kemp will be on HBO's Real Sports with Bryan Gumbel this coming Tuesday, July 17th, 10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT.  From an HBO press release:
The Toast of Tinseltown. Boasting a new $160 million contract, emerging superstar Matt Kemp is the heart and soul of the Los Angeles Dodgers franchise. Kemp, 27, led the National League in home runs, runs batted in and runs scored last year, and was recently chosen to be a starting National League All-Star for the second straight season, despite a nagging hamstring injury that will keep him from playing in Kansas City. This current success stands in sharp contrast to his humble Oklahoma upbringing. In a REAL SPORTS/Sports Illustrated collaboration, correspondent Jon Frankel talks with Kemp about how the Dodgers have put their faith in him as a leader, and the pressures that come with that vote of confidence.
 "It feels really great to be here in Arizona training with the team that's going to make my dream come true to play in the Major Leagues," Puig said through an interpreter. "My plan is to play in the big leagues. That's why I am here. I feel I'm ready, but it's up to them. I'm training as hard as I can to get there. "
  • Beckett provides an early look at Topps newest Baseball card product called 2012 Topps Mini's.  It will be smaller versions of their flagship card set (it will be the same size as the 1975 Topps Mini cards) with new autograph and relic cards.  To the right is a Clayton Kershaw relic game-used card.  Go to Beckett's post to see more samples.
  • In case you haven't seen it yet.  Here's a look at the Tommy Lasorda/ Walter Alton bobblehead being given out tomorrow.  This will be the 6th bobblehead given out this year.  BTW, Alston's grandson, Rob Ogle, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch that evening.
