No question, it’s a great wall

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Jan 30, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post


Joe Torre was in China last week promoting an exhibition game the Dodgers will play there. He was joined by Dodgers executive Dr. Charles Steinberg, who had been with the Red Sox.

I’m guessing that after this photo was taken, Joe launched into a story about how he and Bob Gibson built a wall once because Lou Brock had this mean dog that kept biting Stan Musial. The Chinese writers on hand kept nodding and the headlines the next day said, “Nice man tells long story about former team.”


As you can see, the blog has a slightly different look. We now adhere to the new look of the web site. Hopefully this means that we’ll make millions and my job will be safe another few years.

    Woah, new layout. Not bad Title and stuff is a little messed up, but it might be my browser.

    It’s a little messed up for me too…

  3. JBRO January 30th, 2008 at 11:11 am

    Not my browser, but I’m sure they’ll work it out. Good luck with the new look Pete.

    Torre in China? Me don’t care.

    As long as Pete keeps LoHud up with the same intensity any format changes are gravy

  8. JBRO January 30th, 2008 at 11:19 am

    i miss bernie: The font is smaller but you can make the text bigger in your browser if you want. Go to View>Text Size, to make it bigger.

    It looks like crap. Hope they get it fixed.

  10. Clay Bellinger January 30th, 2008 at 11:23 am

    Anyone know anything about Punxsutawney, Penn? I am headed there this weekend to see the groundhog.

    Watch out for that first step, it’s a doozy.

    “As long as Pete keeps LoHud up with the same intensity any format changes are gravy”

    The only things that changed for me are the header and the text size in the disclaimer section at the bottom. huh.

    Oh whew, thought it was just my computer..

  14. Steve January 30th, 2008 at 11:34 am

    Best headline ever Pete! Thanks for a good laugh early in the day.

    Kudos to Peter …. nice layout.

    Fans in Minnesota seem to think that Bill Smith hoodwinked them. They didn’t see this coming ?

  16. Paulie January 30th, 2008 at 11:38 am

    Looks freaking cold in China. Must be global warming.

  17. mel January 30th, 2008 at 11:43 am

    Why is the man next to Torre wearing Dodger blue?

  18. pat January 30th, 2008 at 11:47 am

    First a Lasik eye surgery endorsement from Pete and now smaller font type. Is there a kickback involved here?

  19. jennifer- Hip Hip Jorge January 30th, 2008 at 11:51 am

    They have had major snow and ice storms the last few days in China. It is a mess over there right now. People are trying to get home for the lunar new year and can’t because of the storms.

  20. EY January 30th, 2008 at 11:57 am

    Wow new layout. Title is messed up though.

  21. mel January 30th, 2008 at 12:01 pm


    I heard about that. Only because there was shock over the fact that the premier apologized for the travel snafus.

  22. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Save the Three Musketeers! January 30th, 2008 at 12:03 pm

    Pete, your job better be secure, I’m not sure what I’d do without this blog!

  23. saucy January 30th, 2008 at 12:19 pm

    looks good. i’m not sure why some of you are complaining. font size is adjustable. try holding your “Ctrl” key and use the scroller wheel on your mouse. if that fails, get your ass some reading glasses!

  24. Yanksgal07 January 30th, 2008 at 12:28 pm

    I’m at work and the page is almost black ..I have to highlight so I can read it …could be the work browser. I’ll have to check it out when I get home.

    Go Yankees 2008 !!!

  25. Drew January 30th, 2008 at 1:36 pm

    They should rename the wall, the “Chinese Monster” and have Yaz play a ball off of it.

  26. ae@dpu January 30th, 2008 at 1:43 pm

    I was actually in China last week. Beijing a few weeks ago and probably standing at that same spot on the Wall as Mr. Torre. Let me tell you, it was freezing up there!

  27. RosterRooster January 30th, 2008 at 2:55 pm

    The new layout gives me a headache.

    The great part about this blog was its simplicity.

    Go back to a white background please.

  28. Hockey January 30th, 2008 at 3:14 pm

    The appearance of the blog is all screwed up. No Yankee logo? All the titles of the threads, posts, and website itself are all jumbled.

  29. Yanksgal07 January 30th, 2008 at 3:47 pm

    I have the Yankee logo …nothing is jumbled …it’s just the page is DARK …I can’t read unless I highlight the whole thing …seems to be different problems for each individual viewing. Something to do with the individual browsers?

    Go Yankees 2008 !!!

  30. joltin joe January 30th, 2008 at 3:52 pm

    you sure that guy next to Joe isn’t Fernando Valenzuela?

  31. BillyJoBob January 30th, 2008 at 11:00 pm

    The doctor looks like he needs a doctor

    Like any other high end store! Prada plus much more. Hardware, cheaplouis handd improvement training or speed training? Maybe ordering RTW items from another state is just a hassle! If I designer handbag change my story, will it change my whole life what could be a different way of carpet bags being.

    With the advent of radio, movies and television, western heroes like Tom Mix, John Wayne, Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy and Roy Rogers and Dale Evans popularized cowboy boots for the masses, including children..
