Timmermann: Tracking the distant signals of the Dodgers

From SABR member Bob Timmermann at LA Observed on May 7, 2017:

It’s been a while since I’ve written in this space. But, the last 18 months have not been exactly been the most inspiring for me from a writing standpoint, for a variety of reasons (most of them involving personal loss), but lately I’ve felt that I could get back to writing about the topic that I’ve written the most about here: the Dodgers, a team that I sometimes feel I have no direct evidence of its existence.

My present relationship with the Dodgers is, like many people in the area, somewhat problematic. Like a lot of people, I have DirecTV so this means that I’m shut out from watching the Dodgers on television except for the odd game that shows up on KTLA (the last one was scheduled for May 7, but it was rained out) or happening to remember when the Dodgers are on a national TV broadcast on Fox or ESPN.

I could go for an old school solution and just follow the Dodgers on radio, except that living in the Sunland/Tujunga area places me too close to the mountains to reliably pick up any radio signals.
