Blog Kiosk: 3/6/2020 -- Dodgers Links & News -- Some Odds and Ends

Above is a peek at the Dodgers 2020 Yearbook. You can get a copy of the yearbook above here (heck, it's free with a subscription to Dodger Insider Magazine).

  • This is the weirdest thing I've ever heard of. The Dodgers just announced a partnership with a company called Fuelster, and they are in the business of delivering gas to your car while you watch a ballgame at Dodger Stadium... I kid you not. From the press release:
Through the partnership, Fuelster becomes the exclusive on-demand mobile fuel delivery service of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fuelster will provide service at all of the Dodgers’ home games beginning with the Freeway Series on March 23. After parking at Dodger Stadium, fans can place an order on the Fuelster app, leave their gas door open, and have their car filled up while they enjoy the Dodger game. Fuelster offers four types of unleaded fuel (87, 89, 91, 99) and diesel. Customers can request a specific number of gallons or simply move the slider all the way to “Fill my tank” and a Fuelster technician will arrive at their vehicle to provide service. Delivery is free, there are no membership fees, and the prices are competitive to the gas stations in the area.
The probable lineup has a lot in common with a number of the high ranking lineups. Betts and Max Muncy batting 1-2 occurs often. Cody Bellinger in the default clean-up hitter in both orders. Although Gavin Lux is sometimes seen batting third, he still works at the bottom of the order.
What really impresses me is the depth of power on the Dodgers. Five of the eight position players project to slug over .500. Given that four of those players also project to OBPs of at least .470, there should be plenty of RBI coming from that power. The above estimates of run scoring for Los Angeles may be too conservative.
