Blog Kiosk: 10/30/2013 - Dodgers Links - Ryu, Puig, Magic and a Fred Claire Interview

Here's a great vintage photo of Vin Scully interviewing Hall of Famer Stan Musial before a game in 1963, pic via Sports Illustrated (Neil Leifer/SI).
  • The Dodgers got shutout in the Gold Glove Awards.  Oh, well!  Tony Jackson at Dodger Scribe has a rundown of the winners.  
  • Check out a new Dodger/Card Collector blog called Chavez Raving.  The writer, Alex Markle, has started sharing some of his Dodger card collection, and is currently running a contest.
  • Via Yonhap News Agency, "Dodgers' Ryu Hyun-Jin makes triumphant return home after strong rookie year ".
  • Tim Dierkes at MLB Trade Rumors discusses the arbitration eligible Dodgers.
  • Mark Saxon at ESPN writes, "Magic: Not 'lost season' for Dodgers".
"We're excited about what we're building and we're ahead of schedule," Johnson said in an appearance on 710 ESPNLA Tuesday. "I never thought we would get there that fast, to play in the [NLCS]. I was excited."
They need to adjust to the game, Jeff. And there are three words that will help Puig adjust, once he understands what those three words mean. Joey Amalfitano – a life-long baseball man who I have great respect for – used the words a lot. The three words that Yasiel Puig needs to understand: Respect the game. Respect the game. And you don’t respect the game when you hit that ball to right field and stand there like it’s long gone. And even staring down the umpire in a moment of the championship series. This guy is a great, great talent, so yes, you need some patience, but it has to be a continual education, or this player is going to run into continual problems.

  • Panini America Offers a Detailed First Look at 2013 America’s Pastime Baseball.  Check out some Puig cards below.  This high-end set comes out in December.
But the history of baseball should not be read as a bible. Believing in something -- whether the cosmic splendor of the Red Sox, or the correctness of the Cardinal Way, or the inherent superiority of the game itself -- doesn’t make it true. Believing does, however, make the world easier to take, easier to understand. Believing gives a sense of order to things like game-ending obstruction calls and pickoff plays that would otherwise drive us insane. Believing makes David Ortiz make sense.
  • Ummm.... Wow.  Via Jamie Shoemaker at TTF Baseball, "C.J. Wilson will spend his offseason photographing … Lisalla Montenegro".  She is his fiance, and she's gorgeous.
  • Ben Marks at Collectors Weekly shares some not so politically correct vintage candy wrappers.  Wow!
  • This is funny stuff.  Check out San Diego State Aztecs Baseball play their annual Halloween ballgame below.
