Plaschke, Thy Sweater Is Argyle:
Just one for me in the Matt Kemp department. Way back in 2010 I pulled this beaut from my first box of Allen & Ginter.It's still one of my favorite cards. So, I ask you, how many hits of your favorite player have you personally pulled?

AROUND THE WEB
Under normal circumstances, Don Mattingly probably would have been dismissed after the 2012 season. The new ownership group came in and would presumably like to hire its own management.
However, General Manager Ned Colletti was signed to a long-term extension, paving the way for Mattingly to stick around.
Mattingly is entering his third season as the Dodgers' manager and...
The Dodgers have signed Dominican outfielder Ariel Sandoval for $150,000, according to Baseball America‘s Ben Badler.
The scouting report on Sandoval is promising:

Gordon's career .260/.299/315 line leaves plenty to be desired. If he could get on base even 32 or 33...
Adrian Gonzalez – “I bleed Dodger blue”
Even while in San Diego, it always seemed like Adrian Gonzalez would not be happy. Small market, big park, no national love. One of the greatest hitters in Padres history always seemed as though he was just playing his days out in San Diego. Loved by the fan base and the Mexican community, a combination of his desire to pursue...
The Dodgers have talked about moving Dee Gordon off shortstop and into the outfield, according to Dylan Hernandez.
The Dodgers have talked about moving the fleet-footed Gordon to the outfield but appear inclined to keep him at shortstop for now. Gordon figures to start the season at triple-A Albuquerque.
“I hate to give up on him at short,” Mattingly said.
Dylan sort of snuck...
