Blog Kiosk: 10/9/2013 - Dodgers Links - Howell, Uribe and Kershaw

So, this happened on Monday.  Yeah... I'm still basking in that glow.  The above collage of photos via the @Dodgers on twitter.
J.P. Howell has been very effective out of the bullpen of late. The 30-year old left-hander may not be the flashiest pitcher on the squad, but J.P.’s consistent contributions this season shouldn’t go unnoticed.

  • This is a lesson for all of us.  If you want to be the best, then be like Clayton.  The day after their win on Monday, Kershaw was hard at work on Tuesday.

  • So, how good were the Dodgers at the plate against Atlanta?

  • Chris Olds at Beckett provides a sneak peek preview of the 2014 Topps Sticker Set card of Yasiel Puig.  See it on the right.
  • Panini unveiled a preview card from a set they are reviving after many years.  It will be called 2013 Select Baseball.  Check out the Yasiel Puig on the left.
  • Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers is a whiny little child.  Via Adam Green at Arizona Sports, "Arizona Diamondacks GM: 'It's going to be an eye for an eye'".
 Toward the end of the season, the L.A. Dodgers clubbed six home runs in an 8-1 drubbing of the D-backs, which was a game that saw the eventual NL West champs look a little too comfortable in the dugout.

"I was sitting behind home plate that game and when it showed up on the Diamondvision of stuffing bananas down their throats, I felt like we were a punching bag," Towers told Arizona Sports 620's Burns and Gambo Tuesday. "Literally, if I would have had a carton of baseballs I would have fired them into the dugout from where I was sitting behind home plate. 
But just because we couldn't score enough runs, the Dodgers refuse to relinquish the title — and worse, they won't even discuss it. LA's stubborn refusal to even talk to us about reversing the results of this series is un-sportsmanlike and un-American.
