Blog Kiosk: 7/9/2013 - Dodgers Links -

For some reason the pic above sent by Yasiel Puig via Instagram had me singing the Grateful Dead tune Casey Jones.
Casey Jones, you better watch your speed 
Trouble ahead, trouble behind 
And you know that notion just crossed my mind
  • Orel at Vin Scully is My Homeboy passes along Vin Scully's story about a batting out of order event from 1950.
  • This might be the best T-Shirt design I've seen all year.  From Eephus Blue - Kershaw and Ellis in a Calvin & Hobbes style.  See it on the right.  As a huge fan of that comic strip, I say "Awesome!"
  • Christopher Jackson at Examiner.com writes a 2 part interview with the Dodgers Director of Player Development, De Jon Watson.  See Part 1 here, and Part 2 here.
  • OK, photoshop geniuses! It's time to use your creative energy to help a Dodger out.  Via Mike Oz at Big League Stew, they have issued a "Reader challenge: Design a campaign poster for your favorite All-Star ‘Final Vote’ participant".  The best campaign poster win an All-Star jersey.
  • Eric Becker at Eric's Dodger Blog was in the Bay Area this past weekend and shared a couple of videos he took to document the experience.  He promises many more in the near future.
  • Via Ken Rosenthal at Fox Sports, "Clayton Kershaw: Mets Ace Matt Harvey Should Start All-Star Game".
“He should (start),” Kershaw told FOXSports.com. “There’s no reason, especially if it’s in New York, that he shouldn’t start. That’s what the fans will want. I’ve got no problem with that.”
As an older pitcher, Nolasco’s fastball isn’t going to get any better. But by placing it in the right place and using it less often, Nolasco is having the best season of his career. There’s evidence that he’s changed his position on the mound and it’s helped against lefties, too. 
  • Sports Collectors Daily has a great story about a wounded veteran who has been using sports card sorting as a way to rehab from brain injury.
  • Watch as Hanley Ramirez goes one-on-one with Jerry Hairston.

  1. Hey Ernest, thanks for the link-up to my blog! To let people browsing know, I have about 90 minutes worth of footage including before the game talking a bit about ways to the ballpark and some history (family history and a bit about Candlestick as we went by it) as well as a suggestion on where fans can go for food and drink before or after a game and plenty of shots in and around the ballpark both before and during the game including some live action. I unfortunately captured all 4 of Puig's strikeouts :( It's a lot of video to sort through and I'm hoping now that I'm home that I can get through it all this weekend. I will update you as soon as I've got something uploaded. At the moment it looks like I will be able to dump all of my footage onto YouTube to give people the whole experience in one place.

    1. That sounds great, Eric. I look forward to hearing back from you.

    2. Hey Ernest,
      I got the video posted up yesterday (took a bit of time to put everything together and convert it.) If you decide it's worthy of the blog kiosk, it's linked to through this entry: http://ericsdodgersblog.wordpress.com/2013/07/17/video-an-adventure-into-enemy-territory-dodgers-vs-giants-att-park/
