2015 Bowman Draft Baseball - The Dodgers Insert Cards

Following up on Wednesday's post featuring the Dodger base cards (link here) found in packs of 2015 Bowman Draft Baseball I now share pics of most of the Dodger insert cards that are available.  Take a look below.  As you can see, the 2015 1st Round Draft Pick Walker Buehler is everywhere.  Also, there are Asia boxes that have exclusive inserts in them.  It is unknown at this time if there are any Dodgers in them, but I will endeavor to update this list should any pop up.

Blog Kiosk: 12/11/2015 - Dodger Links - Jarrin's Birthday, King's Rant and Puig's Troubles

Happy belated 80th birthday to Dodger legend Jaime Jarrin.  The Dodgers celebrated this occasion yesterday.  Photo above via @DodgerInsider on twitter.

"He is the worst person I've ever seen in this game," one ex-Dodger who believes Puig is beyond redemption said flatly. "Ever."

It is the question that persists, and is asked with more and more frequency as the hurricane that is Puig wreaks ever more damage: Can the frayed relationships between Puig and his teammates be salvaged in Los Angeles?

"I think they definitely can," Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis told Bleacher Report this week in another telephone conversation. "I think there has to be give-and-take on both sides.

“I can’t stand what we’re doing,” King told USA TODAY Sports. “Those people in the Dodger front office, they think they’re still in Tampa. This is Los Angeles. We’re in the second-largest market in the country. We lead baseball in home and road attendance. And we haven’t won a World Series since 1988.

“We are not Tampa, but they’re acting like it. They have all of this money — and nothing. We’ve got to do something.”
