Pre-Spring Training Open Chat Revisited
2005-02-15 09:22
by Jon Weisman
Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Dodger general manager Paul DePodesta is holding a chat on MLB.com at 12 noon. Deconstruct it at your leisure here.

Oops: As Eric Stephen notes below, I read the date wrong. We'll deconstruct on February 22 - in the meantime, consider this an open chat room.

Here's something: Nick Christensen of the Las Vegas Sun looks at the biggest names likely to return to the AAA 51s, including Chin-Feng Chen and Joe Thurston - the Brett Somers and Charles Nelson Reilly of Match Game Las Vegas.

"My job is to give the guys, the Chin-Feng Chens and the Joe Thurstons, something new to show these people. That's what I'm going to do," Las Vegas manager Jerry Royster told Christensen. "That's why I get excited about being a Triple-A manager. As an instructor the last two years, I had so much fun teaching these kids things to do. Now I'm a manager, I can propel them to the major leagues."

But please: Feel free to talk about anything Dodger- or Match Game-related, not just the 51s.
