Big Blue Review, January 25, 1993

I recently picked up this copy of "Big Blue Review" from January 1993 on eBay.  This was an old Dodger publication, that appears to no longer be in print.  Which is a shame, because leafing through this, it's a lot more interesting than collection of blogs that have more or less eliminated the demand for these things.  Yes, I'm complaining about blogs on a blog.  But I do my part to support print publications as well, subscribing to two newspapers (the local rag, and NYT), and four magazines (Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, Mad, and Ranger Rick).  

The cover story is about the December trade that brought Tim Wallach to the Dodgers.  It's actually a very nice article.  I'm not sure it's possible to read from the picture I took (it's too big to scan), but here it is if you want to give it a shot:

Being a winter publication, there was a good amount of coverage of the various minor leaguer's and their development.  The Dodgers seemed high on this Piazza kid.

The full stats for the Winter Ball Report has no shortage of familiar names as Mondesi and Offerman would both be everyday starters for the Dodger that would make back to back playoff appearances in '95 and '96 (and would of course won the NLCS in '94 on a Tim Wallach walk-off against the Expos).
