Blog Kiosk: 6/8/2018 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

It appears the Dodgers of old is back. No matter what game and no matter the circumstance, the Dodgers just persevere. Per Mason Wittner at
"It's one of those things where you've got to kind of ask guys to do more than they've been asked to do and stretch them more," Roberts said. "You try to navigate it the best you can and you understand you don't have a whole lot of margin [for error]. To the guys' credit, the bullpen did a fantastic job."
For the second game in a row the Dodgers had to use a bullpen game to get bye. On Wednesday they fell just short of victory. Yesterday, they battled and defeated the Pirates, 8-7. Best yet, Joc Pederson had a career-type of day at the top of the order. He slugged two homers and walloped a double to drive in three runs.

“It actually was a hollow moment after that for me, more because I think as humans, we tend to always think alike: ‘Once I get here, then I’ll be happy, once I reach this goal then everything is going to be fine’,” (Drew) Saylor said. “And when you’re always worried about just achieving the next goal and you’re not really enjoying the journey, you have moments like that.
“It’s like this high for probably about 15 minutes and after that, I can remember sitting in my mom and dad’s front room and thinking like ‘Wow, is this it? Is this all that I’ve worked for for all these years’, Saylor added. “There’s like this moment, you summit the mountain, you get back down, and then you look back up and there’s another mountain staring at you.”

“When I was three my dad had the idea,” Venditte recalled. “He said there were switch-hitters, so why not switch-pitchers? A lot of work and a lot of hours later, here we are.”
A natural righty, Venditte gained strength and motor skills in his left arm in a myriad of ways outside of throwing a baseball. Most notably, he threw a football left-handed and learned to play different musical instruments.
