Dozier Deal Not Happening: Brock Stewart, Really?

January 13, 2017

We’re about two weeks away from the Dodger fan fest in which I eat way too many Dodger dogs and can’t find my car, and only about 5 weeks from the start of spring training. Once again the PR generated rumor mill is in full force with the Dodgers reportedly in on every player yet they never make a move. The Dodgers finally announced the signings of closer Kenley Jansen,…

Could Andrew Toles Bat Lead-off in 2017?

Andrew Toles
January 3, 2017

Andrew Toles was bagging groceries before the Dodgers reached out to him at the end of the 2015 season. The 24-year old outfielder had been jettisoned from the major leagues by the Tampa Bay Rays in March of 2015. The Dodgers signed him in September of that year as Andrew Friedman was familiar with the Georgia native after watching him play for his former club. Toles made his MLB debut…

Chase Utley
December 31, 2016

The 2016 season was filled with thrilling comebacks, rallies, decimating injuries and incredibly exciting moments. Even though the Dodgers fell short of their ultimate goal of ending this nasty now going on 29-year World Series drought, the season was a memorable one. One of the most memorable moments of the 2016 Dodgers season was the 5-game National league Division playoff series against the Washington Nationals. The series was a back…

Could Kike Become The Most Punch-less Dodger Ever?

Kike Hernandez
December 23, 2016

Far be it from me to bring up something negative during the cheery holiday season, with Christmas just a week away and all. I still have to get this down on record before spring training camp breaks in February. With all of the “talks” and keep in mind that’s all they are at this point, of the Dodgers acquiring second baseman Brian Dozier from the Twins, I have to wonder…

The Dodgers Have a Huge Hole To Fill at Second Base, and It Better Not Be With Kike Hernandez

Howie Kendrick
November 15, 2016

The Dodgers recently dealt veteran second baseman/outfielder Howie Kendrick to the Phillies for former minor league farmhand Darnell Sweeney and part time slugger Darin Ruf. Kendrick was acquired in 2014 for pitching prospect Andrew Heaney. Kendrick spent just two years in Dodger blue. That means the trade of Dee Gordon was not only a disaster, but pointless as well. Despite getting nothing of value in return for Gordon (Chris Hatcher,…

MLB Trade Rumors Rising: Will the Dodgers Trade Carlos Ruiz?

November 2, 2016

What will happen this MLB Preseason when the Dodgers have to finalize their plans for Carlos Ruiz?  He wasn’t a Dodger long enough to become popular with the fans, nor did he produce enough baseball heroics to impress the front office, so his name has been dropped as potential trade bait for interested teams. In fact, fans never really stopped scrutinizing the move that brought Carlos Ruiz to the team. One…

Appreciate Kenley Jansen Now

October 31, 2016

Dodger’s closer Kenley Jansen has won the Trevor Hoffman NL reliever of the year award and I think it’s time we appreciate him. Kenley is the former catcher that captured our hearts and frustrated batters with his baffling and at times unhittable cutter for the last seven seasons. Jansen is entering his first free agent year and it is very likely he will end up pitching for another club in…

October 28, 2016

Be sure to tell me how much of an idiot I am in the comments! I wanted to get one of these off because this figures to be a busy offseason. Andrew Friedman and company will have a lot of work to do in order to make this roster compete in 2017 with the elites in the National League. The good news is that they certainly are creative! Some of the…

Dodgers Preparing For a Wonderfully Boring Spring Training

February 10, 2016

In about nine days spring training will begin for the Dodgers. The first couple of weeks of spring training are the most boring. There are no games going on and not much else.
