Dodgers Blog Kiosk: 7/20/2012

With the National Sports Collectors Convention around the corner, here's a look at a Topps promo mini card that will be handed out to attendees.  It's of Matt Kemp showing off his "O" face.  See the other Topps promos at Beckett.
Any trade, he said, would "have to be governed by reason" and "make sense long term."
As more consumers follow games with even more prolific graphic presentations on the Internet, iPhones or iPads, will play-by-play be something of a lost art in future Frick Award ceremonies?

"I wouldn't be selfish to say it, but I sure hope not," said Scully, the 1982 Frick Award winner for his work with the Dodgers, both in L.A. and Brooklyn, as well as on NBC.
Scully stands by the Red Barber philosophy of having one voice in the booth narrate for radio or TV. He says he saw the trend of analysts taking over came back in the 1970s, when he was asked by ABC producer Chuck Howard if he'd be interested in becoming the first play-by-play man on "Monday Night Football."
