Via Diamond Leung comes news that some of our favorite Dodgers have their own blogs:
WELCOME TO THE BLOGOSPHERE
I'd like to extend a warm welcome to the latest blogger, and his name is Chad Billingsley. You can find his blog here.
Billingsley joins Takashi Saito as the other member of the Dodgers' pitching staff with a blog. Saito's blog can be found here.
Billingsley likely takes after his agent, former Dodger Dave Stewart, who blogs here.
If anyone reads Japanese, we'd love to know what Sammy's blogging about.
Thanks to Dodger Thoughts poster GoBears for the following translation:
In case the non-Japanese readers can't decipher the Babel Babble, the gist of the first 2 paragraphs is:
1. He's noting how late they got into LA after the 3rd game of the Mets series. Blames it on TV, which made it a night game, and said it's pretty tough (kitsui) on an old guy. But, they won, so he and the team feel good.
2. Talks about Wells joining the team. The word used is "dai-beteran" which means not "large veteran," (though that would be funny) but something like "true veteran," or "super-veteran" (how would we say that?) The anecdote is that, on his way into the dugout after the last out, he saw a Dodger fan in the stands (he explains that there are a lot of such folk in NY, because of the team's Brooklyn roots), and instinctively gave him the ball. When he remembered that Wells is a big collector, he went over to apologize to Boomer for not giving HIM the ball (to mark his first win as a Dodger), but Wells told him, "it's OK, it's OK...don't worry about it." Wells is really a nice guy.
