Blog Kiosk: 8/27/2019 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

Mistakes were made. Errors committed. Game was lost. Per Ken Gurnick at MLB.com:
“There’s no excuse for what happened,” (Dustin) May said. “I should have been behind third to back the ball up. Can’t let it go into the dugout in that situation. A huge situation.” 
“The throw came in and I was assuming Corey [Seager, at shortstop,] was going to cut it off, but it was over his head,” (Justin) Turner said. “I tried to knock it down, and it just sneaked by me.”
Oftentimes, it's the little things that determine your fate. Photo above via Raymond Gorospe/MLB.com at Dodger Insider. Go here to check out more pics from yesterdays game. Below are more links to check out:
  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1937 Dodger righty Fred Frankhouse throws a rained-shortened (7 2/3 innings) no-hitter, beating the Reds, 5 - 0.  He recorded only three strikeouts and walked six. In 1955 Sandy Koufax earned his first career win during his first career start when he pitched a complete game shutout to defeat the Reds, 7-0. He struck out 14 batters and walked five. In 2005 Dodger second baseman Jeff Kent hit his 300th career homer run as a second baseman -- the first to have ever done so. In 1988 Tommy Lasorda won his 1,000th career game as Manager of the Dodgers.

  • Via Ken Gurnick at MLB.com -- "Floro throws sharp bullpen; rehab next."
“Flo threw today and looked really good,” Roberts said. “His entire mix. It was a good day for Dylan. I saw the way the ball was coming out. He’s been working hard and he’s healthy and I can feel his excitement.”
  • Congrats! John Shoemaker has been named the MWL Manager of the Year and Miguel Vargas was named a MWL Post-Season All-Star, via a tweet from the Great Lake Loons:

  • I consider it a certainty that he'll find himself in Dodger Blue before the end of this season. Per Mike Axisa at CBS Sports -- "Dodgers considering calling up top prospect Gavin Lux when rosters expand in September, report says."
  • Per Brian Brown at Beyond the Bricks -- "At the Helm: A Look at Travis Barbary’s First Season Managing the OKC Dodgers."
One tell for Barbary’s kind demeanor appears in his favorite television show of all-time — “The Andy Griffith Show,” which he credits for purposefully teaching life lessons.
“I actually tell people that every episode that I’ve watched, which is all of them, I think you can take some type of lesson from it.” Barbary said. “Whether it’s how to be a better person; how to treat your neighbor; how to give more to people in need — there’s always something good to be taken from it.”
