10-10-10 Dodgertown Links (Nomo, Wallach, Kemp)

News around the web:
 
What a great find! I will always remember Hideo Nomo. Going to Dodger Stadium in the middle of the 90's was something special. I'm glad I witnessed many starts by Nomo and the beginning of Nomo-Mania.
  • Japan Times has a four part series on the great Hideo Nomo. {Dodger Thoughts}
Other news... Two different stories are being reported on Tim Wallach....
  • Wallach to be on Dodgers' coaching staff {L.A. Times}
  • Wallach in line for a Dodgers coaching position if he doesn't land a Major League managing job. {Dodgers.com}
With many open managerial positions available in the big leagues right now, there is a possibility that Wallach does get an opportunity to manage somewhere else. The L.A. Times says it's a done deal. I guess we'll have to wait until the Dodgers confirm it.
