We’ve got a lot going on today, as everyone is gearing up towards the Coliseum game and Opening Day.
Throughout the late morning and early afternoon, we’ll be hosting conference calls with a number of the former Dodgers who played at the Coliseum. This will allow the media to ask questions leading up to the game and the audio from those calls will be available on dodgers.com, so keep an eye out for that.
Additionally, today and tomorrow we are hosting a dozen Spanish-speaking media members, many of whom live in Mexico. We are picking up the group at the border and bringing them to Spring Training so that they can load up on interviews, meet some of our key Spanish-speaking staff, broadcasters, coaches, and players, and take a look at the Glendale Spring Training site. It will keep many of us busy throughout the two days so if I don’t get the chance to post a lineup today, please forgive me.
Thank you for inviting me to take part in the Fantasy Baseball League for Inside the Dodgers. I’m thrilled that you all are connecting this way and that the site has become a way for you all to chat about your favorite team. However, I don’t think I’ll be able to take part in it for a number of reasons, with the main one being time! There’s simply too much going on before Opening Day to dedicate to a draft and the same holds true once the season starts. Plus, you wouldn’t want a team in your league that has all sorts of inside info, would you?
And finally, don’t forget to shoot your questions to Ned Colletti, as he’ll be answering a bunch more before Opening Day. I know that many of you like to debate the team’s moves and decisions and this is a chance to ask the man in charge of baseball operations. Just remember, he actually is going to read what you write so starting a question off with a cheap shot probably isn’t the best route to take. I think it’s pretty cool that he wants to answer questions from the fans — I don’t know a whole lot of GMs in any sport who will do that on a regular basis — and I’m sure that you all can come up with some things you’ve been wondering about the team.
