Blog Kiosk: 9/7/2013 - Dodgers Links - Kemp Shut Down

Here's an early peek at the September issue of Dodgers Magazine featuring Hyun-Jin Ryu and Yasiel Puig on the cover.  Pic via @Dodgers on twitter.
"Stan (Kasten) wanted us to do as much as we could as fast as we could," (Janet Marie) Smith says. "In a five-month period, 160 permits were pulled for all of the construction projects we had going on at once."
The room, about the size of a study, has something on every wall. Dodger year books show no signs of yellowing behind frames. He even has a Dodger line up card and advertisements of ballplayers, like Whit Wyatt, hurling a fastball with Chesterfield cigarettes displayed. The year they won the 1955 World Series, a lower tier ticket cost $7.35. He has a copy of that, too.

This makes me feel really sad.  I hope Kemp can recover.  For more information check out Jeremy Warnemuende story at, "Kemp shut down with hamstring problems".
"He's not having a very good couple of days here," manager Don Mattingly said before Friday's opener vs. the Reds. "He felt some hamstring stuff yesterday, so he didn't hit today. I would say he's slowing his roll a little bit."
