neither did i but my older brothers told me stories!
The Beatles clip isn't even at Dodger Stadium. lol
The displacement of the residents of Chavez Ravine, along with O'Malley's long fight with Robert Moses in New York before moving the Dodgers to LA would make for an excellent period movie or mini series.
Though it'd be tough to not exploit some aspects of the story for the woke agenda.
This is cool
Vlad Guerrero Sr. not being a Dodger broke my heart. I'll always hate Frank McCunt

Jr not so much
Yeah, as for veracity of content ... well .... it's about as reliable as CNN or MSNBC.
... that guy voicing the video used to post over on ESPN & Huzzah back in the Oughts. He and Dustin Nosler (DodgersDigest) both posted there. Dustin went nuts with his wokery and it became impossible for me to read his lefty horseshit. At least this guy leaves that off his blog
Wasn't the first time they let a HOF right fielder slip through their hands (see Clemente, Roberto).
I have always heard that the reason they didn't get Vlad Guerrero was because of the pending sale that wound up going to McCourt. I can see where the other GMs and the commish would have leveraged them so LA couldn't improve their team too much during the course of that bogus sale.
It turned out that ahole didn't have enough money to buy a Tastee Freez let alone the Dodgers.
Vlad wanted to be a Dodger... that's what I always thought.
Not big on the statue thing (see Staples Center or whatever they call it), but anything that honors Sandy is fine by me.
The sculture itself, as a piece of art, is spot on. It's soooo Sandy.
With Mookie out, Dodgers looking to acquire RHH OFer at minimal prospect cost to platoon with Eddy Alvarez in right, source says. Could look for bigger piece in trade later or possibly promote Miguel Vargas, a highly regarded 3B prospect who has 10 homers and an .851 OPS at AAA.
Depth. Deep depth.
Can he close ?
The Dodgers are closing in on a trade to acquire outfielder Trayce Thompson from the Tigers, reports Juan Toribio of MLB.com (on Twitter).
He's batting .206. Is that right ?
He'll fit right in with that Sultan of Swat batting average.
Think we can trade Kimbrel for Pollock?
I hated Trayce. Probably still do.
Los Angeles Dodgers acquire Trayce Thompson from Detroit Tigers
The Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday acquired outfielder Trayce Thompson from the Detroit Tigers for cash considerations.
The righty-hitting Thompson should help fill the void left by Mookie Betts, who landed on the injured list over the weekend due to a cracked rib.
Thompson, 31, signed with the Tigers last month but had been playing for the team's Triple-A affiliate in Toledo, hitting .299 with eight home runs, seven walks and 30 strikeouts in 25 games.
He has spent parts of six seasons in the majors, including a previous stint with the Dodgers in 2016 and '17.
Thompson is the brother of Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson.
They say Thompson fills a need for a RH bat.
Seems they had a good one that they traded for a garbage closer.
