12 Years a Dodger…Dre

“Dre has gone through it all in the Dodger Blue. 7 playoff appearances, the most of any L.A. Dodger, 6 division championships, the uncertainty of when and where he will play. He’s gone from looking up to…To being looked up to. We’ve all gone through the highs and lows with him…”

“Dre is now The Dean of The Blue. Deep down, we all know that this could be Dre’s last opportunity in a Dodger Blue uniform to win that big prize that has eluded him.”

Win For Dre, October 17, 2016.

Andre will be entering his 12th season wearing the Dodger Blue. Ethier joined Dodger Talk this week to discuss what these opportunities to give back to the community mean to him. He also goes on to elaborate on what it’s been like to remain with the Dodgers for so long.

From the Diamond to The Court

UCLA basketball has had an exciting season so far. Though currently struggling coming of a two game losing streak to Arizona and their upset loss to USC, their record stands at 19-3. I had a chance to go One on One with former Laker assistant as well as former Bruin and current UCLA radio commentator Tracy Murray, discussing UCLA’s defensive struggles on the court all the way to the toughest Trojan he faced in his days lacing them up at Pauley…

Drei’s Random Bits

If the Kansas City Royals do go on to win the World Series, they will have really deserved it. Twice in the playoffs have they either staved off elimination or came from behind to win. In Game 4 of the ALDS, down 2 games to 1, trailing 6-2 heading to the 8th inning and 6 outs from elimination, like last year’s AL Wild Card, the Royals would mount an amazing comeback against the Astros, sending the series back to KC where they would win in 5.

Game 1 of the World Series, 3 outs from going down 1 game to the red hot Mets, the Royals would come back and tie the game, eventually winning in 14 and are now 2 games from their 2nd World Championship title. 

Still searching for The New Skip…

With news of Don Mattingly being hired as the new skipper of the Miami Marlins, the wait for a new skipper for the Dodgers continues, with Gabe Kapler and Ron Roenicke being 2 top candidates….

Kobe Bryant now in his 20th season !

Is it really Kobe Bryant’s 20th season with the Lakers ? The milestones just don’t seem to end. Rare is it for a player of any caliber to remain with the same team in any professional sport throughout their career let alone 5 years. Playing with the same organization for 20 years without leaving ? That is an accomplishment. We can probably count how many professional athletes in our liftetime that have not only played 20 seasons but  all with the same organization, such as Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn

Tracy Murray, the onetime Laker known for his outside shooting prowess, will be the shooting coach with the Lakers this upcoming season. I cant think of a more deserving person for the role than Tracy. I had the opportunity to interview Tracy back in January while he was the radio commentator for UCLA basketball for an article I did on Pauley Pavillion for Stadium Journey. For being my first interview, I already saw why he was a radio commentator and feel very strongly he will be a great asset to this young Lakers squad…
