As Spring Training was coming along, I was thinking about what my LA Dodger Report content would look in 2020. Unfortunately, the c-virus outbreak sat right in the middle of the room and stopped the baseball season cold.

Here it is - the Dodgers' big off-season move: grabbing A.J. Pollock.
Was dropping Yasiel Puig for Pollock worth it? That's not really the right question.

The Dodgers traded away Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp, and Kyle Farmer in what many believe is the first step of a Master Plan toward acquiring a huge free agent, such as Bryce Harper or A.J. Pollock.
Oh, it's a Master Plan, alright. It's just not the one you're imagining.

The Dodgers finally gave Dave Roberts his Christmas present: four more chances to get the Dodgers to the promised land. They've gone all in on Doc, and it's now up to him to finish strong. If not, this could be the last Dodgers contract Roberts ever gets.
Here's my take:

Yes, Walker Buehler gave up five runs in the first inning, and it was a tall order to ask the Dodgers to come back and win. Almost impossible, one might say.
I say it was made absolutely impossible because of Dave Roberts' bad managing decisions (again).

The Dodgers face the Rockies this afternoon in Game 163 - a one-game shot at the NL West division crown. I'll be there, and here are three reasons I'm feeling optimistic on my way to the game.

It's pretty much official team policy at this point. The Dodgers have two standards for performance: One for Manny Machado, and another for everyone else.
It's not the way the Dodgers should run things, and in the long run, it ultimately hurts the team.

The Dodgers announced the "Legends of Dodgers Baseball", a way of recognizing great past Dodgers with plaques honoring their contributions to the team through its storied past. The inaugural class is Fernando Valenzuela, Steve Garvey and Don Newcombe.

This post was originally put up before the recent outings of Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler against the Rockies. unfortunately, it was lost because of a computer glitch. So here it is, submitted for your approval, once again.

The Dodgers are two-thirds of the way through a Do or Die road trip, and so far they are...surviving. They salvaged their series against the lowly Reds with a win today, and in doing so, they may have salvaged their season.

The All or Nothing Dodgers are in a fight for their postseason lives.
That makes this upcoming road trip a make or break situation.

The Dodgers are dropping further in the standings and there doesn't look like anyone can stop the nosedive. Is it time to give up on the season?

Yasiel Puig was suspended for two games for his scuffle with the Giants' Nick Hundley. At the same time, Miami Marlin Jose Urena was (in effect) only suspended one game for intentionally throwing at a batter. Some folks out there are seeing this through the lens of racism. Here's my Nick Hundley MLBYasiel Puig Read More
Last night Yasiel Puig and Nick Hundley added another page in the decades-long rivalry between the Dodgers and the Giants. That said, this rivalry is starting to feel less like one between two teams, and a feud between one team and one player.
Here's my take on last night's bench-clearing basebrawl:

After last night's "Bullpen Tryouts" disaster, the Dodgers have move Ross Stripling and Kenta Maeda to the bullpen. Dave Roberts said Stripling will be back to the starting rotation soon, implying Maeda won't be. I'm betting Kenta's not too happy.
