Blogger Night Returns!

Blogger Night is back tonight at Dodger Stadium, and the Dodgers PR department has once again graciously invited the Sons of Steve Garvey. This year, thanks to the generosity of the Original Flavor Sons, SoSG Stubbs, Dusty, and I will be attending. (Originally, it was just going to be Stubbs and Dusty, but some last-minute begging and bribing scored me a ticket, too.)

If you've seen the Sons' coverage of past Blogger Nights (if not, go here, here, here, and here), you know what an amazing event this can be. This year's lineup includes Q&As with Ned Colletti and Stan Kasten, as well as other surprise guests.

"Ask me about my mustache."

"I will not be taking questions about whether I'm firing the man above me, so let me stop you right there."

I'm going to be honest here. I'm more than a little nervous about this. My schtick since joining the Sons has been "guy who throws out one-liners on Twitter," so I have no idea how I'll handle asking real questions to real members of the Dodger family. (Well, I do have a few questions in mind.) So, I turn to you, SoSG readers. What do YOU want us to ask Ned and Stan? Go nuts! Leave your questions in the comments. I'll pick a few of the best and try my hardest to get them in tonight. (If I don't completely seize up from geeking out too hard.)

HUGE thanks to the Dodgers for inviting us and to Sax and Orel for giving the noobs a chance. We won't let you down.

Now that McCourt is gone, is it easier to explain the signings of old veterans to unnecessary multi-year contracts due to his lack of funds, or is Dodger management really that shallow?

NicJ said...

If Kasten is the please ask about plans for a new scoreboard/dodger vision.

Hideo Nomo said...

Oh yeah, DodgerVision is on my list. I want to point out the orange pixel blobs.

Dusty Baker said...

Really looking forward to this event tonight and to spending some quality time with my brothers Stubbs and Nomo.

I know what you mean about being nervous about being able to pull this off and not overgeek and be overwhelmed. My role is usually that of the drunk, sardonic observer. I guess I will just try to reprise that role and report back to our faithful readers!

@ DB Gnomes Stubbsy

Do us proud,mutts. If y'all ain't in the stadium jail by the 2nd inning i'll be disappointed.

Dusty Baker said...


If I'm not ostracized, vilified, or prosecuted by the third inning, I'll be surprised. And disappointed.

Two words: Mini Bar.

Empty it.

Hey, I'm going to Lasorda bobblehead night. Anyone else? I'll be in the lodge wearing my Dodger cap and SOSG jersey.

Dusty Baker said...

Waaaaaaay ahead of you, RBN.

Yeah we'll be at Lasorda bobble night. In reserve section that night. Give me a shout so we can dry hump.

spank said...

Get a toilet stall!

Pride of Dong said...

I may go.

I'm trying to budget it, 10 bobblehead nights, plus all my normal sunday games is really taxing my travel budget this year! Can we go back to crappy giveaways during the week and cool shit on weekends?

Neeebs (The Original) said...

One word: URIBE.

WTF, Ned. How could you ever justify a three year deal to such a horrible ball player?

Just modify the above in proper question form.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Q for Ned: would a dodger dog incentive clause in Uribe's contract help to motivate him?

Q for Kasten: Can the team afford that kind of clause?

I thought we were all going.
