China trip postponed …

… but before you start thinking common sense has prevailed, it has only been postponed for one day. Because of an airline snafu (the first company MLB contracted with failed to secure landing rights with the Chinese govt.), the Dodgers won’t leave Florida until March 12, not March 11 as originally planned. For those of us who took preventative measures with our bosses early in the winter to ensure that we wouldn’t have to make this ridiculous trip, this means absolutely nothing. The traveling team is still leaving Vero on March 11 (to spend a night in Orlando), so Tommy’s return to managing won’t be impacted in any way whatsoever. See ya in Phoenix, boys. … They also released the roster of guys making the trip. The words “skeleton crew” come to mind. The list includes three guys from minor-league camp, including the immortal Wilkin Ruan.
