Dodgers Notes from Spring Training: Spring Game 25 / Road Game 13

on March 26th, 2015 by Ernest Reyes

Throughout Spring Training the Dodgers PR department sends out helpful daily notes from Camelback Ranch, and I am happy to pass them along.  See what they’ve written below.

————————–
Los Angeles Dodgers (12-6-6) at Chicago White Sox (8-11-3)
Thursday, March 26, 2015 – 1:05 p.m. MT | Camelback Ranch

LHP Clayton Kershaw (2-0, 2.03) vs. RHP Brad Penny (1-0, 4.63)
TV: SNLA

Today’s #DodgersST lineup at White Sox: Rollins SS Puig RF Gonzalez 1B Grandal C Kendrick 2B Crawford LF Uribe 3B Ethier CF Kershaw P
— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) March 26, 2015

————————–
(Camelback Ranch, via Chris Williams on twitter)

NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN NEIGHBOR: The Dodgers, who have the Majors’ best spring winning percentage at .667, take on the Chicago White Sox today for the third and final time this spring. The two clubs kicked off the Cactus League schedule on March 4 and 5, splitting the pair of games, a 6-4 Dodger loss in the opener and a 6-1 victory the next day. In just 11 days, the Dodgers will take on the Padres April 6 – Opening Day at Dodger Stadium.

THOSE WINNING WAYS: The Dodgers flexed their muscles in a 9-5 victory over the San Diego Padres yesterday at Camelback Ranch, hitting four home runs and three doubles in the contest. Yasiel Puig and Joc Pederson each hit their team-lead tying fourth homers of the spring while Justin Turner cracked his third and Scott Van Slyke his second. On the mound, Juan Nicasio allowed two runs in 3.0 innings for the victory while J.P. Howell (1.0 IP), David Aardsma (1.0), Paco Rodriguez (1.0) and Yimi Garcia (1.0) all tossed scoreless relief. Rodriguez (7.0 IP) and Garcia (8.1) have not allowed a run all spring. 

  • The four home runs give the Dodgers 37 this spring, which leads the Major Leagues. The Cubs are the next closest at 30.
(Puig’s HR, via Dodgers on tumblr)

ALL ABOARD: Today the Dodgers announced that the Dodger Stadium Express will return in 2015! LA Metro offers two express services to Dodger Stadium:  The Dodger Stadium Express Union Station and the Dodger Stadium Express South Bay are complimentary services from downtown Los Angeles and the South Bay directly to Dodger Stadium. The Dodger Stadium Express Union Station bus service includes the benefit of enjoying a dedicated bus lane on Sunset Boulevard from Union Station to Elysian Park Ave.  Dodger game-day tickets will be honored as payment to ride the bus service and it will operate 90 minutes before the game and 45 minutes after the game.  Fans can also park at Union Station for $6 and take the Dodger Stadium Express free with a game ticket. For specific route and schedule information, fans can visit www.metro.net/around/dodger-stadium-express or call 323.GO.METRO

  • The club will also be adding dedicated prepaid lanes for fans purchasing parking passes in advance for games during the 2015 season. Fans should follow the signage to these designated auto booths at all gates for the dedicated prepaid lanes. To enjoy these dedicated prepaid lanes, the Dodgers encourage fans to purchase their parking in advance to assist in traffic flow and expedite movement through the auto gates. Advance parking prices are $10 and parking at the gate is $20.  The Dodgers also will offer premium parking in advance at $35 and $50 at the gate.  To purchase parking in advance, visit www.dodgers.com/parking.

THEY SAY IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY: The Dodgers would like to wish a very happy birthday to former infielder and current Special Assistant, Player Personnel Jose Vizcaino. “Vizzy” joined the Dodger front office after retiring as a player in 2006 and, in his playing days, spent his first two years in Los Angeles (1989-90) before joining the squad again from 1998-2000. Vizcaino’s career spanned 18 seasons and he played for the Dodgers (1989-90, 1998-2000), Cubs (1991-93), Mets (1994-96), Indians (1996), Giants (1997, 2006), Yankees (2000), Astros (2001-05) and Cardinals (2006). 

(Pederson’s HR, via Dodgers on tumblr)

THE YOUNG BUCK: Joc Pederson has posted a .409/.447/.773 slashline this spring and ranks among the NL leaders in runs (11, T-1st), hits (18, 2nd), batting average (.409, 3rd), total bases (34, 2nd), on-base percentage (.447, T-8th) and slugging percentage (.773, 1st).

  • Justin Turner went 2-for-3 with a homer and two runs scored yesterday and is batting .486 with four doubles, three homers and eight RBI, while posting a .513 on-base percentage and a .857 slugging percentage in 14 Cactus League games.
  • Second baseman Howie Kendrick went 1-for-3 with a double and an RBI yesterday and is now hitting .405 this spring to go along with five doubles and eight RBI. Kendrick is career .297 hitter in the month of April and has hit more homers (19) in the season’s first month than any other. 

ON THE MOUND: LHP Clayton Kershaw will make his fifth Cactus League start today. Kershaw has allowed three runs on 10 hits through 13.1 innings so far this spring. He last pitched on Friday against the Athletics, when he was struck by a line drive, chipping one of his teeth. He stayed in the game and finished with four strikeouts through 5.0 innings of work.

  • Hard-throwing RHP Joel Peralta is expected to make his fifth appearance of the spring today. Through four Cactus League appearances, Peralta has tossed 4.0 innings, surrendering two runs on three hits and striking out four.
  • RHP Pedro Baez is also expected to see action today. Baez has held opposing hitters to a .086 batting average this spring, allowing only four hits in 6.2 innings.
  • RHP Chris Hatcher will make his seventh Cactus League appearance today. Hatcher has allowed six runs through 5.1 innings this spring.

Blog Kiosk: 3/26/2015 – Dodger Links – Puig, Olivera and Crawford’s Reality TV Show

on March 26th, 2015 by Ernest Reyes

Yasiel Puig had a big day yesterday.  He made a heads-up fielding play in the 1st inning to get an out and walloped a massive two-run home run soon thereafter that went out of the stadium to left field.  Watch it here.

I wonder if the recent announcement of the Dodgers signing Hector Olivera got him excited.  As reported by Dylan Hernandez at the LA Times, Puig knows Olivera very well. 

“His father was my hitting coach,” Puig explained in Spanish.

Puig says further.

“He was a tremendous influence on me.”

The photo above was posted by the Dodgers on twitter.  Below are some more links to check out:

The Los Angeles Dodgers, worth $2.4 billion, are the second most valuable three years after Guggenheim Baseball Management bought the team and Dodger Stadium for $2 billion from Frank McCourt. The Dodgers raked in more than $120 million in television money last season, the the most in baseball, as part of  the team’s 25 year, $8.35 billion deal with Time Warner Cable. The team also lead MLB in attendance, with 3.78 million fans coming through the turnstiles during the regular season.

  • I really dislike reality television.  Via TMZ, Evelyn Lozada, along with fiancee Carl Crawford, will star in a new reality television show on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network.

So far, no word if any of Crawford’s L.A. Dodgers teammates are scheduled to appear on the show … but with attention-loving stars like Yasiel Puig on the Blue Crew … we wouldn’t rule it out.

Oy Vey!

“I think if it was serious I wouldn’t be able to pick up a ball,” League said. “It’s not painful, it’s just hindering. I know my body pretty well and I don’t think this is anything serious.”

    Theme Week: Better Know a Blogger (Tim from I Love the Smell of Cardboard in the Morning)

    on March 26th, 2015 by Nachos Grande

    Welcome back to one of the final entries in my ongoing Better Know a Blogger theme week!  In fact, I believe this is the final entry in the series besides my own answers.  If anyone wants to jump in at the last moment – or if your entry entry was somehow skipped/missed by me – let me know ASAP!  For now though, let’s get to know another fellow blogger!

    1. Your name (or alias):  Tim B.
    2. Your blog website:  I Love the Smell of Cardboard in the Morning
    3. What kind of collector do you consider yourself (team collector, player collector, set collector, etc.). Why do you collect that way? 

    I’ve been a bit of everything during my collecting years(set collector, team/player collector, in-person autograph seeker, rookie/prospect collector, etc). These days though, I’d say that I am mostly a team(s) collector(Yankees, select Rays and Nationals, and Broncos) but I mix in cards dealing with season highlights/playoffs/baseball history. I think this style of collecting suits me best because it maximizes my enjoyment and helps me stay within a reasonable budget.


    4. In your opinion, what could the major card companies (Topps, Panini, etc.) do to make your style of collecting better for you? 

    Well, Topps took a small step with 2015 series 1 by reintroducing the team cards that had been missing for the past few years. I’d like to see them bring back true Season Highlights cards. Instead of making these into checklit cards with a caption describing an event, I’d like to see a devoted card with a more detailed description on the back. As for Panini, I’d love to see them get a full license(I know this is not their decision to make) so I don’t have to pick and choose cards that don’t look terrible to me without the logos. Much like many others, I’d like to see a drastic reduction in the numbers/types of parallels(hopefully Topps’ reduction in series 1 will continue).


    5. What is your favorite part of your collection?  This could be one specific item, or a binder of cards, etc. 

    I’d have to say the favorite part of my collection is the run of late ’90’s-early 2000’s Topps/Topps Chrome(inc. refractors) Yankees Playoff/World Series Highlights subsets. For at least ’99, ’00, and ’01 I have(am searching for) all of the Yankees highlight cards in base, Chrome, refractor, and in some cases Limited/Employee/HTA versions. I guess it’s the early version of collecting the rainbow. It’s been a lot of fun hunting them down, and I’m almost done(I think).


    6. Most of us have a favorite song that we like for no good reason – heck, it might even be embarrassing.  Do you have a favorite baseball card that might fit that bill?  

    The closest thing to a guilty pleasures card that I have is probably the 1986 Donruss Jose Canseco RR. I loved the Bash Brothers when I was growing up and even with all that has happened to Canseco’s reputation/popularity I stilll love looking at that horribly awkward rookie card. I mean, he’s got a caterpillar crawling on his upper lip, how is that not entertaining?


    7. If you were forced to part with your entire collection except for one card, which card would you keep? 

    It’s hard to choose. I think it would be a toss-up between my 1962 Topps Roger Maris or my 1955 Topps Roberto Clemente RC. There are interesting stories as to how they came to my collection(both are planned future blog posts). I’d have to say it would be one or the other because of significance they hold to the history of my collecting days(as well as their hobby significance).


    8. Many of the blogs (including my own at times) seem to decry Topps’ lack of vision and creativity.  Can you think of something creative that could be done for an upcoming card set?

    Since relic cards are not going anywhere anytime soon, I’d like to see a focus on some non-traditional relics. For catchers, maybe include pieces of chest protectors or masks. Revisit fielding and/or batting gloves, hats, batting helmets, and spikes. Plain white/gray jersey swatches and plain splinters of a bat are so common. I think they should explore a little more variety.


    9. What is your profession?  How did you end up there?  If you are in school, what do you plan to major in and/or what job do you hope to get after graduating?  

    I currently manage a high volume small animal veterinary hospital. I began working in the field a number of years ago and planned to enter NC State veterinary school. That goal was put on the back burner when I learned my wife and I were expecting our first daughter. Here I am a few years later with 2 girls under 5 years old and have changed plans to management so I can stay in the business that I love and actually make a career out of it. There is always time to pursue vet school once my girls are in school, but I didn’t feel I could devote the amount of time required to studying, etc and sacrifice seeing my girls grow up.


    10. What is your favorite place that you’ve ever visited?  Why?  

    I’d have to say Hawaii. I have some extended family there, but the real reason it is my favorite would have to be the atmosphere. You can truly be laid back visiting there and there is hiking, swimming, stand-up paddleboarding, and surfing available to fill your leisure time. I’ve always been drawn to the ocean, so never being too far from a beach was pretty great too.


    11. Many of us have favorite foods or customs that are somewhat local to where we live.  Do you have any such things that you particularly love?  A website link to specific products would be spectacular.  

    A true NC specialty is pulled pork barbecue. There are a number of great places that specialize in this, but my favorite is a hole in the wall called Backyard Barbecue Pit. From pulled pork to ribs to brisket, they have it all and it’s all incredible. They have traditional southern sides like mac and cheese, collards, Brunswick Stew, and sweet potato caserole as well. I’d include a website link, but they don’t have their own site. They were featured on Man vs. Food when they came to Durham, NC though.


    12. Do you have any other hobbies besides card collecting?  

    Primarily listening to music and spending time with my daughters(and wife).


    13. Tell me something interesting about yourself (that we haven’t covered in the first twelve questions). 

    As a family, we tend to do a decent bit of traveling. As a result, I’ve been to 8 MLB stadiums and 6 minor league stadiums so far. I know there are others that have been to a lot more, but at least I’ve got a start. We typically attend 10-15 Durham Bulls home games each season(though we live about 40 minutes from the park, we both work only about 15 minutes from there, so it is our ‘home’ team).

    Tim ended up being featured on my blog on back-to-back days thanks to his awesome trade packages yesterday and now his Better Know a Blogger answers today!  I think I raved enough about Tim’s trading prowess yesterday so let’s specifically focus on Tim’s questionnaire answers today!
    First, Tim sounds like a great family man – how can you not respect an answer like “spending time with my daughters and wife” for hobbies other than card collecting.  After all, happy wife, happy life!
    In terms of Topps and relic cards, Tim (along with a few others) mentioned some more nontraditional relic choices.  As a lover of Allen & Ginter relics (esp. relics like playing cards, paper airplanes, and pieces of rope), I couldn’t agree more!  White and grey swatches are much too boring…at least make the relic piece look interesting!
    Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t comment on Tim’s food answer.  I love pork barbecue (even though northcentral PA isn’t exactly a hot bed of quality bbq establishments).  I have been through North Carolina a couple of different times (enroute to Florida) but I’ve never actually made North Carolina a destination.  Knowing all the pork bbq that is there, perhaps I should put that state on my “to visit” list again!
    Thanks a bunch for taking the time to answer my questionnaire Tim!  And, for that mater, a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the Better Know a Blogger series.  The series was a success way beyond my wildest imagination…and it’s sort of sad to see it about to end.  SO – if you want it to keep going, shoot me an email so that I can get the questionnaire out to you!   Once I post my own answers, the Theme Week will officially be closed!

    How does Kentucky celebrate its diverse musical heritage?

    on March 26th, 2015 by JT
