Halloween Day, Debut of Dodger Talk, Birthdays, Births, Awards and SABR Meeting

The Jints had their World Series parade today on Halloween Day, an appropriate day for them with their colors.  Congrats.  Hopefully next year the Dodgers will be celebrating.

Today Wednesday  is also the debut of Dodger Talk on AM570 with Jorge Jarrin.  The show will air from 7 PM to 8 PM.  Adrian Gonzalez will be a guest.  Buena suerte Jorge!

Also today is Javy Guerra’s birthday.  Javy turns 27.   Do you remember when he dressed as a taco last year for rookie Hazing?  If not, ehre is a picture as a reminder.  Love the guys showing some legs!

That was a fun day in San Diego watching the guys get on the bus with their outfits.

There was a co-worker dressed as a taco today that reminded me of Javy’s outfit last year.    I dressed as Sally from Nightmare before Christmas.   There were a group at work dressed as Obama and Romney.  There was another dressed as Clinton and there was Hillary Clinton too.

I was going to post two more pictures but the system is being difficult.   I know is NOT this user.

Congratulations are in order. 

I know I am late but congratulations  to Clayton Kershaw on winning the Roberto Clemente Award!  Well deserve kid!  The last time the Dodgers had a current player win the Roberto Clemente award was in 1981 when Steve Garvey won it.

Also congratulations to AJ Ellis and his wife Cindy on their third child.  Cindy gave birth in the car on their way to the hospital.   What a woman!   Since I am talking about births, congratulations to my friend Nora who gave birth to her first baby. She and Sax named her Pele June.  I already bought her a Dodger outfitt.  It is blue but is OK, the baby can wear blue too!

I am looking forward to seeing Ricahrd Santillan again.   Hope he has his latest book with him so that I can buy it.  I don’t have any artifacts to take to the meeting but I am curious to see what other members take.

    I did not know that! Wow! I went searching on the internet after reading that and found this:
    “It’s worth noting that in the 18 years Roth was with the team, the Dodgers finished in first or second place 13 times. “Allan Roth was as vital to Branch Rickey as Robin was to Batman,” said Schwarz, a writer for The New York Times.”
