Blog Kiosk: 3/7/2018 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends


I missed out on the Dodgers' First Look event yesterday afternoon. This is an annual soiree put together to introduce the upcoming seasons stadium menu items and giveaways to the local media. They brought out all kinds of new items; including a carne asada torta that I will have to try out.Sue Jo at Dodger Insider provided some details and plenty of photos from the event, here. David Young at True Blue LA put together his own write-up: New Food Items (here) and Giveaways (here).Photo above via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2018 at Dodger Insider. BTW, it's Chipper Jones Day in Georgia today. Below are more links to check out:This Day in Dodgers History: In 1966 the Dodgers and Astros are the first Major League teams to play on artificial grass when they face each other for a spring training game in the Astrodome.Happy Birthday, Mysterious Walker, Bill Lamar, Jim Hughes, Tommy Davis & Carlos Monasterios!Audio: Dave Roberts On How Dodgers Will Respond To Justin Turner Injury from Lunchtime with Roggin and Rodney (Audio Link).Podcast: FnA welcomes Dodgers pre- and postgame host, Tim Cates, to talk about how Justin Turner's hand injury will affect the defending NL Champs (Podcast Link).Per Eric Stephen at True Blue LA; "Dodgers option Alex Verdugo, reassign Rocky Gale to minor league camp."Here comes Farmer. Per Ken Gurnick at; "Farmer playing way into mix for roster spot.""He's had a great spring and his ability to conduct an at-bat off the bench, to catch and play third base, obviously there's added value with Justin [out]," Roberts said. "He's comfortable at third base, and I wanted somebody who could catch [Wilmer] Font and [Scott] Alexander."Good news! Via a tweet from Ken Gurnick:Justin Turner said he will not need surgery. His broken left wrist will be in a brace for a few days, then he can begin range of motion exercises. “Good news,” Turner said.— Ken Gurnick (@kengurnick) March 20, 2018A Dr. Robert Klapper provides more details: #DODGERS. Great News! #JustinTurner. The Fracture has 2 Key elements.1) it’s a Small break2) it’s Nondisplaced Crack. This means NO Surgery is Needed. No long term consequences!#MVP— Dr. Robert Klapper (@DrRobertKlapper) March 20, 2018 Via Cyd Zeigler at OutSports; "Erik Braverman gets big promotion at Los Angeles Dodgers: Braverman is an out and proud voice in the Dodgers front office."The Los Angeles Dodgers have promoted Erik Braverman to a senior vice president role, making him one of the highest-level publicly out LGBTQ executives in professional sports.Braverman’s new title is Senior Vice President, Marketing, Communications and Broadcasting at the Los Angeles Dodgers. He is now one of only a handful of senior vice presidents with the team, making him one of the most important voices in front-office conversations.Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA; "Walker Buehler limited, but expected to contribute in 2018."“I don’t want to put a number on how many innings but I think it’s fair to say 140-150 innings is attainable,” manager Dave Roberts said. “If Walker is healthy good things are going to happen for him and for us. As far as where this happens that’s just going to play itself out.“We know he’s going to pitch meaningful innings for us at the major league level. We don’t know when.”* Please follow on twitter @ernestreyes ** Like Dodgers Blue Heaven on facebook ** Dodgers Blue Heaven home page * [...]

Team Card Sets and Kenley Jansen Stars Wars Bobblehead Just Announced


The Dodgers are going all out for their 60th anniversary in Los Angeles. Not only has an 11th bobble been added to their schedule (the Kirk Gibson bobble), but they are also adding a 12th this season.Announced today, the team will be issuing a Star Wars themed bobble of Kenley Jansen as Lando Calrissian -- their first Star Wars bobble ever. Check out a mock-up of the bobblehead on the right. The first 40,000 fans in attendance for a game against the Giants on Friday, June 15th will get one. This day also corresponds with this years Star Wars Night themed event.Additionally, for card collectors this next bit of news should warm your heart. The club has also announced that the “Collector’s items” indicated on their promotional schedule will be 60th Anniversary Collector’s Card Sets presented by our old friends at 76. These folks were responsible for those player portraits given away at their gas stations in the 60's and 80's.There will be six different card sets to be given out on six different days, and each one will touch upon various generations of Dodger players. Furthermore, they will use the designs from Topps sets from their respective era's. This last bit makes me wonder if Topps will be producing these for the team. Below is a schedule:1950/60’s (April 10 vs. OAK), 1970’s (April 23 vs. MIA), 1980’s (May 8 vs. ARI), 1990’s (June 12 vs. TEX), 2000’s (Aug. 2 vs. MIL), and2010’s (Sept. 4 vs. NYM)* Please follow on twitter @ernestreyes ** Like Dodgers Blue Heaven on facebook ** Dodgers Blue Heaven home page * [...]
