With a name like Tydus…
One of the great baseball names, Tydus Meadows, was recently transferred to Double-A Jacksonville when we sent Oscar Robles back to Vegas. Rather than go in the tank, he responded with a 5-for-5 performance last night, including a homer and two RBI. Meadows came to Spring Training as a non-roster invitee, but was injured much of the spring and did not get in a Grapefruit League game.
To enter the contest to win four new baseline seats for an upcoming Dodger game by guessing the Dodgers’ first three draft choices, click here. However, I realized last night that this is a very tough assignment, given that none of us has really had the chance to see any of these guys play before. So, while you’ll surely be rooting for the guys you guessed would be picked, it’s really only our scouts who have a true idea who our best bet is at each slot.

Welcome back, Eric Gagne.
Home winning streak back on the line…
