Now you can carve Vin Scully’s face into a pumpkin


Just in time for Halloween, the Dodgers’ website has posted free, downloadable pumpkin-carving stencils, my favorite of which is this one featuring Vin Scully:

I also liked this note on the bottom of the page:


** Kids: Make sure a parent or adult is helping you with this activity! **


To carve your pumpkin, you can use a pumpkin carving kit from your local grocery store or you can use the following common household tools:


Serrated knife

Pin or nail

Paring knife

I’d like to see some kid try to carve Scully’s face into a pumpkin with a spoon. It’ll end up looking like Tommy Lasorda.

Marlins sign Sean Burnett to minor league deal

Free agent reliever Sean Burnett signed a minor-league pact with the Marlins on Saturday. Per’s Joe Frisaro, the left-hander is slated to begin the season in extended spring training and will work toward a role in the majors.

Burnett, 35, has not appeared in full-time role in MLB since 2012. He last pitched for a big league team in 2016, surfacing for 5 2/3 innings with the Nationals before returning to the minors. Despite signing a minor-league deal with the Phillies last spring, he failed to make the Opening Day roster and was released prior to the start of the season.

Complicating Burnett’s return is a slew of chronic elbow issues. The left-hander has dealt with everything from bone spurs to a torn UCL over the last six years, and will need to take things slowly in the minors before the Marlins consider adding him to the bullpen this season.
