Blog Kiosk: 7/19/2013 - Dodgers Links - Baby Clayton, Headphones from Kemp and a New 16-Year Old Dodger

Baby Clayton Kershaw!  Pic via twitter @Dodgers.  OMG, the Dodgers need to make available more baby pics of our favorite Dodgers!
  • Eric Stephen at True Blue LA writes, "International signing period: Dodgers sign Venezuelan SS Moises Perez, per report".  He is 16-years old.
  • Here's a 360 degree look at the Vin Scully Bobblehead.  Pic via twitter @Dodgers.
  • Mike Oz at Big League Stew tells us that "Matt Kemp bought $250 headphones for every player on the Dodgers".
  • Ken Gurnick at writes, "Dodgers' all-time Top 5 in-season trades: Ramirez deal tops list of notable midseason imports for storied franchise".
  • Eric Becker at Eric's Dodger Blog writes a piece about the irrational (often racist filled) ranting found online about Marc Anthony singing "God Bless America" during the All-Star game.  BTW, Anthony was born in NY, and the song was written by an immigrant, Irving Berlin.  Funny... A man considered America's greatest song writer was himself an immigrant.  Take that, nativist!
  • Roberto at Vin Scully is My Homeboy relays a news story about a pending lawsuit against Yasiel Puig that appears related to his escape from Cuba.
  • What a gimmick!  Via Tom Bartsch at Sports Collectors Digest, Lelands Auctions is offering $1Million to anyone who brings to them the 1919 Black Sox confession documents that mysteriously disappeared from the DA's office before their infamous trial.
“The Black Sox confessions are the Dead Sea Scrolls of baseball,” said Josh Evans, founder and chairman of “Finding them would close the darkest chapter in baseball history.”
