Dodgers News And Notes

Another Dodger loss. The offense was non-existent again. At this point, does it really matter? Time to start thinking about 2011.

Speaking of 2011, could Tim Wallach, manager of the Dodgers' AAA afiliate Albuquerque Isotopes, be the Dodgers' manager next year? According to Baseball America, Wallach is the Pacific Coast League's best managerial prospect.

After 16 years in the minors, John Lindsey has finally made it to the majors. The Isotopes first baseman was called up today along with third baseman Russ Mitchell, who is also making his major league debut, Chin Lung Hu, and pitchers Jon Link and John Ely.

So who pitches batting practice for the Dodgers? Pete Bonfils is his name, and he's been doing it for almost 30 years. Who knew?

Have the Dodgers trademarked the phrase "Los Doyers"? After spotting Los Doyers shirts in the Dodger Team Store, Roberto from Vin Scully Is My Homeboy asked that same question. He found out that they had trademarked the phrase on August 18.


  1. No disrespect to Don mattingley but I think Wallach has came through the ranks and might be a better option for the Dodgers if Torre decides not to return. Even thogh Wallach has only managed in the minors he still has manager exprience. Just my opinion. I may totally wrong.

  2. Evan - Forget Don Mattingly. He sucks. I agree with you. I think Wallach should be the next Dodger manager.
