Kenley Jansen has been spending this winter back home in Curaçao -- hangin' with the kids. Photo above via Jansen on twitter.Below are more links to check out:This Day in Dodgers History: In 1954 the Pittsburgh Pirates took future Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente in the Rule 5 Draft from the Brooklyn Dodgers. As the story goes, the Dodgers had no room for the bonus baby signee on the team roster, so tried to hide him in the minors -- hoping nobody would notice him. Alas, former Dodger GM Branch Rickey spotted him and took Roberto out from under us. In 1977 the Dodgers signed the very first free agent in their history. It is former AL saves leader Terry Forster, who signed a five-year $850,000 contract ($150,000 per season + $100,000 signing bonus). In 1982 Dodger second baseman Steve Sax is named the NL Rookie of the Year.  He is the fourth consecutive Dodger to win the award. In 2006 the Dodgers signed free agent outfielder Juan Pierre to a five year $44 million contract. In 2016 President Barack Obama awards the Presidential Medal of Freedom to broadcaster Vin Scully. You can watch the presentation of the award to Vin here.Happy Birthday, Ricky Wright & Ricky Ledée!ICYMI: ESPN will air the Dodgers' Opening Day game between the Dodgers and Giants on Thursday, March 29 at 7:00 PM.

Check out my post from earlier this year featuring a tour of last years Popup Museum with Maury Wills here.Per Matthew Moreno at Dodger Blue; "3rd Annual Justin Turner Golf Classic Set For Jan. 29." Registration for this even is currently open. Go here for more information.Per Chad Thornburg at MLB.com; "MLB's Compton academy hosts turkey giveaway: Dodgers, Angels participate in effort to help community enjoy Thanksgiving."The MLB Youth Academy provides free, year-round baseball and softball instruction as well as educational and vocational training for underprivileged youth. The success of the Compton academy led MLB to open additional facilities in Cincinnati, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C."They're taking kids off the street, they're teaching them baseball, they're teaching young ladies softball, and to have that in your backyard, in your community, it's just a great asset," (Dennis) Powell said. "So I hope people really take advantage of it."This is the craziest Baseball story I've read in awhile. The Braves just got punished by Major League Baseball, and now a whole bucket load of their illegally signed foreign prospects are about to be free agents. Jeff Todd at MLB Trade Rumors goes through the, "Process For Signing Prospects Stripped From Braves."Panini shares even more 2017 Black Friday promotional cards here; including another Cody Bellinger card to wet your whistle.

In order to entice collectors to visit and order from Topps on Black Friday weekend they are offering a special shopping bonus.The first 1,000 orders for each day over the shopping weekend will receive one of four limited edition Topps Now cards.

2017 Panini National Treasures - The Dodgers Base Cards

2017-11-08T15:46:25.205-08:00

Here are the Dodgers base cards found in packs of Panini's 2017 National Treasures Baseball card set. Go here for a complete checklist.This brand hit store shelves a couple of weeks ago, but I am only now getting to it. As always, this set includes no team emblems or logos. The base set includes both relic and autographed cards (both Dodger signatures require a redemption card), and as you can see it's filled with a bunch of Brooklyn Dodgers. Although I'm not a huge fan of this set, it is refreshing that cards are still being made of some ol' time Dodgers'.Base #3 Don Drysdale                    #9 Gil Hodges#11 Jackie Robinson              #16 Leo Durocher#19 Pee Wee Reese              #21 Roy Campanella#30 Carl Furillo                 #56 Walter Alston#64 Jake Daubert                   #81 Jim Gilliam#100 Clayton Kershaw             #103 Corey SeagerBase Relic Variations#11 Jackie Robinson#21 Roy Campanella -- Not Yet Seen#100 Clayton Kershaw           #103 Corey SeagerRookie Materials Signatures#192 Cody Bellinger -- Redemption Card#194 Andrew Toles -- Redemption Card* Please follow on twitter @ernestreyes ** Like Dodgers Blue Heaven on facebook ** Dodgers Blue Heaven home page * [...]
