MLB & Dodgers Notes – June 24, 2008
Tonight the Los Angeles Dodgers will have a 3 game series vs the Chicago White Sox.
Before the game, the Dodgers will honor Jaime Jarrin’s 50th Anniversary as a broadcaster. That’s nice to know. Jaime is a nice person. He is the Hispanic Vin Scully. People forget that he is a Hall of Famer. Congratulations Jaime. There a couple of articles online about Jaime. Dodger thoughts has a nice interview with Jaime. The L.A. Times also has a story. Talking about hispanics, I notice the other day that the current Dodger roster doesn’t have many hispanics. I remember back in the 90’s they were a bunch in the roster. Now I only see Ramon Troncoso (Dominican) Angel Berroa (Dominican) and Luis Maza
(Venezuela) Those 3 players haven’t even been with the Dodgers full time this year. Only Troncoso is a product of the farm system. On the Disabled List, I see names of Tony Abreu (Dominican) Rafael Furcal (Dominican) and Nomar Garciaparra (Mexican-American) Of those 3 players, once again, only 1 player (Abreu) is a product from the farm system. Que onda Mike Brito ? You got to find more talent ! :) Now I leave you with a Video of a clip that Troy from West Virginia was able to obtain from his famous incident in Cincinnati last week. It’s the radio version telling the Cincinnati fans that a Monster (Troy) is attacking the fans (It starts around 30 seconds) It sounds like it’s Thom Brennaman and Jeff Brantley broadcasting. “It’s a Monster, a Dodger fan, Oh boy, Police are there, he is a big big man” Hahahaha ! LMAO !
I’m out, peace!
