As the Angels won round 1 in the battle of L.A. (whilst losing Vlad Guerrero in the process), CSTB can report the following questionable items being peddled by Frank McCourt’s minions at Dodger Stadium Friday night ;
1) caps bearing the legend “The Los Angeles Dodgers Of Los Angeles” (pretty funny, except for the $25 price tag).
2) “game worn” Brooklyn Dodgers cap from Turn Back The Clock Day, autographed by Friday’s losing pitcher, Scott Erickson (above). Opening bid in this charity auction was $50. At the end of the evening, no one had bid.
Baseball America’s John Manuel is reporting that the Angels’ 2004 first round draft pick, P Jerod Weaver (younger brother of LA’s Jeff) will sign with the Atlantic League’s Camden Riversharks. Unsigned Diamondbacks draftee Stephen Drew, younger brother of the Dodgers’ J.D., and like the Weavers, another client of Scott Boras, is already on the Riversharks’ roster.
