Blog Kiosk: 11/7/2015 - Dodger Links - Club Options, Qualifying Offers and Free Agents

With the Dodgers search for a new manager in full steam I thought the above 1934 International News press photo of two former Dodger skippers standing side-by-side to be timely.  Featured are Max Carey (left, manager from 1932 to 1933) and Casey Stengel (right, manager from 1934-1936) wearing their Brooklyn garb.  The above pic was found at the current Touchdown Treasures auction.  Check it out here.

"I have patients who are teachers, professors, lawyers, doctors, bankers who are actively doing well with Parkinson's," said Dr. Michael Kaplitt, a neurosurgeon and associate professor of neurological surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York. "They're actively productive, and it doesn't prevent them from doing a variety of professions.

"You have to understand your limitations, but patients can do a variety of professions where their expertise and their mind are very valuable and the disability they have from the disease is well-enough controlled where they can be extraordinarily productive."
  • Tim Dierkes at MLB Trade Rumors shares their, "2015-16 Top 50 MLB Free Agents With Predictions" here.  They believe Zack Greinke and Brett Anderson will remain Dodgers'.  Furthermore, they suggest the Dodgers might be in the running for the services of David Price, Johnny Cueto, Scott Kazmir, John Lackey or JA Happ.
