Come On, Get Happy

After this morning’s bout of bad news (so long, Tony…) let’s lift the spirits:

Good news! Josh Suchon and Ken Levine from KABC’s DodgerTalk have asked me to be a guest on Sunday’s show! They’ve had a different Dodger blogger on each week for the past few weeks (see Son of Steve Garvey Orel’s account here). We’ll discuss life, love, baseball, swine flu, and finally get the answer to this horrifying question, posed by Josh:

Our first question will be why a Dodger blogger has a Boston area code for his phone number. Should be fun.

In all seriousness, it’s a very cool idea by the guys to reach out to the blog community (i.e. “unpaid uberdorks“) and I’m very much looking forward to it. I’m told I’ll be on at about 6:30pm PST, and they broadcast live online at if you’re not in the area. But seriously, listen.

Possibly even better news! According to Ken Gurnick, Dodger beat writer – whatever that is – there’s one busted veteran we don’t have to worry about seeing again…

Right-hander Tanyon Sturtze, who has pitched well at Albuquerque, was given his release after Jeff Weaver was promoted to Los Angeles instead of Sturtze.

Bullet dodged!
