Baseball News -
Hey everyone! I had trouble logging in to my blog. Apparently MLB had a glitch. Everything is ok now so I’m back to start blogging. I haven’t gone to Arizona or met any players since my last blog. I don’t think I will go back soon because of other issues I need to deal with. So I might I have to wait until next year when the Dodgers open camp there (and that’s not even a guarantee, Dodgers can still play at Vero next year) Anyways, my brother Jack is at Vero Beach. He’s going to catch a couple of games over there. He sent me a text yesterday and said "Vero is over-rated" I don’t know what to make of that. Never been there so I can’t say. Well good luck to him. I know he’s having fun and scoring some autographs. Well not Tommy Lasorda’s autograph. My brother saw him yesterday and approached him with a bat and Lasorda said "I don’t sign bats, it’s against my religion" Ahh you **** old man ! lol
Kershaw as a 5th Starter ?:
It could happen folks. Joe Torre seems to like this kid. Clayton Kershaw will get a chance to pitch with the big leaguers sometime next week. Russell Martin seems to think he has a chance to make the club. "I wouldn’t be surprised," said Russell Martin, who caught Kershaw’s inning against Washington on Tuesday night. "For the first time in a big league game — wow. He’s got just a heavy, heavy fastball and an easy delivery. He’s very deceptive. His curveball, it just drops off the table. I think it’s the best curveball I’ve ever caught, to be honest" Wow Russell. The best curveball you’ve ever caught ? That would be awesome if we see this kid at the Majors. If not, send him to Vegas and bring him up at the All-Star break.
