Dodgers Announce "Fernando Valenzuela Fix" - What a Crock

The Dodgers announced the "Legends of Dodgers Baseball", a way of recognizing great past Dodgers with plaques honoring their contributions to the team through its storied past. The inaugural class is Fernando Valenzuela, Steve Garvey and Don Newcombe.

Folks ranging from the Dodgers' beat reporters to anyone with a Twitter account were praising this "solution to the Fernando Valenzuela retired number problem". I'm calling this a complete crock and an empty way of avoiding the true recognition that Fernando deserves from the organization - the retiring of Number 34.

Leftover Vintage Makes its Way from The National to my Hands

Aloha, everybody, 

My favorite dealer from my local card show went to the National and returned with a whole lotta vintage that was priced to sell. I was at the card show looking to buy. The perfect cardboard storm arose. 

Enjoy. Aloha!
