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!

A nice gesture by Andre Ethier and Eric Karros Bobblehead Unveiled

The fans sitting in the first seven rows of the Right field seats got a nice surprise on Tuesday night when they received free Dodger dogs on Tuesday wrapped like this:

What a nice thing for Andre to do! I was not sitting there but my friend Lorena got the text along with the picture. Thank you Andre!

Dodgers lost three consecutive games for the first time this year. On top of that, Matt Kemp reinjured his left hamstring scoring from first base on an Andre Ethier’s double. I noticed someone getting mad in the dugout but did not realize it was Matt until afterwards. Kemp is back on the DL. Good luck Matt.

Tonight is the fourth game with Chad Billingsley against Greinke. I will be sitting in the Left Field pavilion tonight. I am told the seat is above the milk sign. Looking forward to seeing Deuce, William, Dee, Joe, Ron, Pete and the rest of the fans that sit there.

The next bobblehead has been unveiled today. It is the Eric Karros bobblehead.

Nice! I like it! It is on my birthday June 28, but I will be out of town. Not to worry, brother Vic will collect for me.
