With Spring Training well under way, and the season right around the corner, I am going to try and post most often…In fact I hope to post at least 3 or 4 times a week now that my schedule has slowed down a little. But first, I wanted to let you all know about the radio program that 790 AM KABC is going to be starting this week. Beginning Wednesday, there will be a half hour show on 790 AM from 6:30 – 7:00 pm. This will be a Monday – Saturday show, and on Sundays, there will be a much longer version of the show from 7 – 10 pm. This will give fans the opportunity to call in and talk about the Dodgers, and the number is 1-800-222-KABC. Also, you can listen online at www.kabc.com. I look forward to listening and calling in as much as possible.
As for the real boys in blue, so far this Spring they’ve looked pretty good. All of the pitchers from our 25 man roster have performed well, and a few non-roster guys have also done so. I’m excited for James McDonald to make his spring training debut tomorrow, and I hope he continues his dominance from last year. Also, while only a few games have been played, no player fighting for a spot on the team has really dominated. Both Nomar and LaRoach have had mixed results, and the same goes for Pierre and Ethier. As it stands now, it appears that the veterans will be starting, but like I said before, it is still early.
Delwyn Young appears to be playing some aggressive baseball, and it’s good to see him at 2nd base again. Hopefully he will prove that he is too valuable of a player to lose. While I’ll post my personal 25 man roster in my next entry, I will say that he is definitely on it.
Finally, I wanted to let all you Dodger Bobblehead fans out there know that we can vote on one of the bobbleheads again this year. Follow the link to http://losangeles.dodgers.mlb.com/la/fan_forum/bobblehead_ballot_form.jsp and vote for your favorite Dodger, but please, take note that Nomar, Furcal, Kent, and Russell Martin all already had bobbleheads made for them, so PLEASE DO NOTE VOTE FOR THEM. I would love to see someone new get a chance (such as Loney, Kemp, Penny, Lowe, or Billingsley), so thanks for you’re help on that vote.
