Around the Dodgers Blogosphere

It's an off-day for the Los Angeles Dodgers as they prepare to host the Chicago White Sox for a three-game series. In the meantime, I would like to introduce a new segment to Dodgers Digest. On some off-days from this point forward, there will be a blog post called Around The Dodgers Blogosphere highlighting the some of the best blog posts concerning the Los Angeles Dodgers from around the web.

Sons of Steve Garvey provides a comical off-day puzzle where James Loney is surrounded by former players of the San Francisco Giants. What will he do? I have included an image from their hilarious blog post below:

Joe Torre must go, says Mark of LA Dodger Talk. He says that, "this is no team for old men." Yet, he is unsure if a "fiery new manager," could make a difference in the organization. I believe that Torre is doing the best that he can do. However, his passive managing style may not be the best for the Dodgers' youthful organization.

Rob McMillin of 6-4-2 wrote a recap of yesterday's nail-biting victory over the Cleveland Indians. After Chad Billingsley blew the Dodgers' four-run lead early in the game, I thought that the Indians could rally back later in the game. Thankfully, the Dodgers held onto the lead and seized the victory. He refers to the amazing Luis Maza catch, which can be found on our blog.

Inside the Dodgers, not to be confused with the Dodgers' official weblog, features an article concerning Scott Proctor's poor performances. Tom Fornelli wrote a similar article on AOL FanHouse. Proctor is fortunate to have a job now considering his recent outings.

Dodgers Digest was featured on this week's Blog Kiosk over at Blue Heaven. Although we're technically a "new blog," in this huge blogosphere, I'm trying to make a name for ourselves. After all, we're the first microblog to ever cover the Los Angeles Dodgers!

A dual-blog covering both the Boston Red Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers, Beantown West, recently wrote a blog post about how both organizations avoided a sweep this weekend. The Dodgers barely avoided the sweep, winning the series finale, 4-3.

I wrote a controversial article earlier in the week on my other blog, Dodgers Blog, naming Delwyn Young as the future of the Dodgers organization at second-base. But even I, a prolific Dodgers blogger, cannot foresee the future.

Trolley Dodger writes about his opportunity to meet Dodgers' third-baseman, Nomar Garciaparra, over the weekend. The event was held this past Sunday at Dodger Stadium. If I lived in Los Angeles, I would have definitely been in attendance.

Kensai wrote about how his dream may come true on his blog, Fire Ned Colletti Now. What would happen to his blog if the Dodgers decide to fire Ned Colletti? According to his blog, we will find out in the near future.

Update: Kensai, inspired by this blog post, went out and purchased a new domain just in case. You can now access his blog at It looks like he made a smart move since Colletti is currently sitting on the hot seat.

Here is the solution to Sons of Steve Garvey's mind-boggling puzzle. I had trouble figuring it out, but then again, I'm not a big chess player. Regardless, the puzzle did its job and entertained Dodgers' fans on the boring off-day.
