"Dodger Idol" Updates Pouring In

From Diamond:

Dodger Idol kicked off today with guest judges Jeff Kent (Simon), Juan Pierre (Randy) and physical therapist Sue Falsone (Paula). Word on the street is that the judges dressed the part, with Kent donning a tight black shirt.

From Dylan Hernandez at the LA Times (reg.):

The two-day "Dodger Idol" competition has begun, as six players in their first big-league camps were forced to sing in front of their teammates. Garciaparra played the role of Ryan Seacrest, while Pierre was Randy Jackson, team physical therapist Sue Falsone was Paula Abdul and Jeff Kent, wearing a tight black shirt, was Simon Cowell.

Widely said to be the best performer of the day was right-hander Rick Asadoorian, a non-roster invitee who sang Billy Joel's "Piano Man" while playing a guitar and harmonica. "Genius," closer Takashi Saito said.

Music is in Asadoorian's genes; his brother Steven, who uses the stage name Steven Dorian, is performing in the musical "Smokey Joe's Cafe" in Vero Beach.

Would it be too much to ask for pictures? I've never seen Jeff Kent in a tight black shirt.
