Blog Kiosk: 9/3/2013 - Dodgers Links - Michael Young, Paco Rodriguez and Edinson Volquez to Start

The Newest Dodger, Michael Young, met with reporters in the Dodgers clubhouse for the first time yesterday.  He got into his first game for the Dodgers as a pinch-hitter, but struck out on three pitches.  Pic via @Dodgers on twitter.
“They did (tell him what his role would be), but they didn’t have to,” Young said. “You could probably ask every guy in this locker room if he would like to have five at-bats a game, and they would say yes. But it’s a winning team, and I just want to contribute. And with it being a National League ballclub, I will have a chance to contribute every day.”
"In that situation I thought he's bring Wilson in, but I know they have confidence in me. When Honey came out I knew it was all mine. We came up with a game plan, and it was one of those things. Once you know they have trust in you it just makes you that much more confident in yourself," Rodriguez said. "I'm just happy there is confidence in me, that I'm able to do that job."
Mattingly was impressed with Volquez's bullpen session Sunday, which would put Volquez in line to start Wednesday. That would bump Hyun-Jin Ryu, Wednesday's scheduled starter, to Friday and give him two extra days of rest.

It is a side of the great Cobb that few have ever seen. The book portrays the aging Tiger Hall of Famer as a man deeply dedicated to his grandchildren.  The book provides a rare glimpse into the private life of the Georgia Peach – a retired ballplayer who still loved the game he helped make the National Pastime. Hersch warmly recalls that Granddaddy Ty would often listen to ball games on the radio: “It really didn’t matter who was playing, so long as the company of his past was with him.”
  • Kershaw's Challenge recently shared a video on their blog that features two kids they sponsor in Zambia.  They tell their story about where they came from, and what life is now like living in the Arise Home.
