TEAMS: Los Angeles Dodgers
A couple of recent pickups that were acquired separately but belong together for obvious reasons. First up, Kid K in either short or super-short-print form.I'm honestly not sure which but it's at the least rare-ish. Kersh hitting is appropriate considering how putrid the Dodgers have been with the bats in '13. I fully expect that to change, though. Anyhoo, let's move to the other half of the battery.Numbered 152/199, it's a sweeeeeeet black parallel of A.J. Ellis. I had to bite on this bad boy the second I saw it existed. I love the picture of A.J., black parallels are awesome generally-speaking, and Ellis doesn't have a lot of solo cardboard.

The clock continues to tick for Ted Lilly

Yesterday Ken Gurnick reported that the Dodgers were at an impasse with southpaw Ted Lilly after the 14-year veteran refused a minor league assignment Saturday. The Dodgers now must activate him, designate him for assignment, release him, or trade him. Gurnick passed on these comments from manager Don Mattingly; “We laid out a plan and Teddy doesn’t want to be part of the plan...

Dodgers' Ted Lilly refuses minor league assignment

Ted Lilly thinks he ready to come back from his shoulder surgery.  The Dodgers do not.  When Zack Greinke played matador against a charging Carlos Quentin last week, he suffered a fractured collar bone that will keep him out for two months.  The immediate thought was that Lilly would be his replacement.  However, the Dodgers did not think Lilly was ready and chose to go with...

The Rejuvenation of Carl Crawford

In Tampa Bay, Carl Crawford was a star. He was one of the most exciting players in the sport and one of the main driving forces behind the team’s rise from ineptitude to World Series contender. He was a homegrown talent who excelled in all of the things the Rays valued. He was an example of what small market teams could do to overcome the financial gap and take down the big...

Video: Hyun Jin Ryu, Matt Kemp, and Clayton Kershaw Perform “Gangnam Style”

Follow @DSchmelzerTSB on Twitter I know what you are thinking, Gangnam Style is so six months ago.  But I came across this video, thought it was amusing, and decided to share it with you. Dodgers pitcher Hyun Jin Ryu, who is a native South Korean, which is where the dance and song originated, seems to be in some sort of a Talent Show, and recruits Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw to...

MLB made at Carl Crawford for wearing cleats in honor of Jackie Robinson

On Monday, Major League Baseball celebrated Jackie Robinson Day. Part of this celebration included all players donning Robinson's No. 42 on the back of their uniforms.Some players took the tribute of Robinson a step further, though. One of those players was Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford, who sported a pair of blue and white commemorative cleats (pictured above...

The Most Perfect Card Ever.

Night Owl's got one and now so do I. Really, every Dodgers' fan should make it a point to own this beautiful piece of cardboard. Let's quickly run down everything amazingly awesome about this card.Matt Kemp, check. It's a short-print/high-number, check. The photo Topps chose is excellent, check. It's the most appropriate and stellar blue parallel, check. It was...

Dodgers aim to bounce back against Padres

After a disappointing loss last night on Jackie Robinson night, the Dodgers will look to get things back on track in game two of the three game series with the San Diego Padres. This will be the Dodgers’ first look at what life will be like for the next couple months without Zack Greinke in their rotation. That starting pitching depth is looking pretty good now, right? After...

Game 7 Recap From the Ravine

My father has always called the San Diego Padres the “Pesky Padres” and for years I have shrugged it off and denied it. But, after tonight’s loss at Petco Park, I am second-guessing myself. In a year where the Dodgers are far better then that pesky team from down south, the Dodgers failed to do much. The first game of the three game set started with so much promise when Carl...

Dodgers’ Hanley Ramirez is going to tweet out ‘shocking’ return from his thumb injury

Hanley Ramirez was scheduled to return on May 17 from his thumb injury, but the star shortstop now says that "everybody is going to be shocked" at how soon he returns.

Cities boost security after explosions

Police in Los Angeles, New York City, London and other cities worldwide stepped up security Monday following explosions at the Boston Marathon. Los Angeles police Lt. Andrew Neiman said the department was urging officers to be extra vigilant around large crowds and would increase security at sporting events such as the Los Angeles Dodgers game Monday night. The department was also...

Carlos Quentin to be suspended for Dodgers/Padres series + odds he gets hit unintentionally

MLB doesn’t want to see things get ugly between the Dodgers and the Padres on Monday, and Bill Center of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the league will try to make their ruling by the time the series rolls around. Major League Baseball is speeding up Carlos Quentin’s appeal of his eight-game suspension — a suspension that stems from his recent dust-up with Dodgers...

How Baseball Works

Fan memories are a bit strange.  The news came in today that the Cubs signed Kevin Gregg to a minor-league deal.  That usually wouldn’t mean much except for the part where 1. Kevin Gregg used to be a Cub, and a particularly unliked one due to his string of blown saves and 2. Kevin Gregg has not been all that good since.  Gregg did have a fairly decent 2010 season in Toronto...
