Vin Scully said during Monday’s Dodger broadcast that he wanted to broadcast the duel between Clayton Kershaw and Stephen Strasburg “so badly” that he pushed himself to work despite a sore throat. Though that matchup didn’t materialize, Kershaw didn’t disappoint, pitching the Dodgers to a 4-1 victory.

Tonight, however, Scully will give himself a night off to rest his golden voice. Charley Steiner and Orel Hershiser will provide play-by-play and color on SportsNet LA, and Rick Monday and Kevin Kennedy will call the game on AM 570.

To paraphrase Scully, he is day to day, and we’ll know if he’s coming back to work Wednesday, Wednesday.

Before tonight’s game, Kenley Jansen will be honored for breaking the franchise saves record, and former record-holder Eric Gagne is scheduled to participate in the ceremony.

Who’s coming to Old-Timers Day on July 2?


  1. Hey Vin,
    Gargle with warm salt water. It will help your throat. Feel better soon. We’ll miss you.

  2. Have lots of chicken soup.

  3. Where is Nomar?

  4. The Vin is getting some extra attention on the political side for his comment the other night about socialism. This is a reminder about climate change, because he always has said that he despises air-conditioning and it gives him a cold. Well ….

  5. Mr. Scully,

    The men and women of LAFD extend their wishes for well wellness. As much as we might hope, tonight won’t truly be Firefighter Night at Dodger Stadium without you Sir, the greatest of all time.

    Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,

    Brian Humphrey
    Public Service Officer
    Los Angeles Fire Department
