Meet the New Dodgers. USC & UCLA game

There are so many changes with the Dodgers that I need a scorecard to keep track.

Meet the Scouts:

The Dodgers essentially acquired the international scouting staff from the Seattle Martiners

Bob Engle as vice president of international scouting.  Pedro Avila, Gene Grimaldi, Patrick Guerrero, Pat Kelly, Jamey Storvick and Mike Tosar.

Also professional scouts: Willie Fraser and Scott Groot

Former Dodgers third baseman Bill Mueller, who served as special assistant, player personnel, will become a full-time professional scout.

senior advisor Gerry Hunsicker, special assistant Pat Corrales

Josh Bard as special assistant, player personnel

hitting coach Mark McGwire.

John Valentin will be promoted from Triple-A hitting coach to assistant big league hitting coach

bullpen coach Ken Howell will become assistant pitching coach to Rick Honeycutt

Double-A pitching coach Chuck Crim will be promoted to Major League bullpen coach.

USC & UCLA Football game:

I like this picture of Mark McGwire and Eric Karros that Jon SooHoo took.   Mark went to USC (so did Jon SooHoo) and Eric went to UCLA

Tomorrow is the annual USC & UCLA game.  May the best team win!

    haha. I am looking forward to the updated player roster.
    I don’t know what the coordinators but wouldn’t you like to have a job like that? Dodgers seem to be hiring left and right.
