We have recalled Yhency Brazoban from Las Vegas and put Chin-hui Tsao on the disabled list with a right shoulder strain. Hopefully we’ll have more information from Grady once he talks to the media but I wanted to at least let the masses know first.
Also, I just came from a lunch in the dugout club with Grady and Ned that was held for the people who have the baseline box seats and it was a really nice Q&A format. A lot of questions got asked from fans just like you to both the GM and manager and they did a very good job answering as candidly as they could. There was one question about our move to SF that Grady and Ned weren’t sure of the answer, so on the off chance that this gets back to the guy who asked it, here’s the scoop.
The question was if the rumor is true that when the Dodgers and Giants moved West in 1958, the two teams went into a room and flipped a coin to see who would go to SF and who would come to LA. Grady deferred to me and I told them that I had never heard that before but I wanted to be sure. I’ve now confirmed with team historian Mark Langill that there is no truth to it. So, for what it’s worth, you can pass that around to anyone who asks.
Lineup coming later…
