Podcast: ‘Dugout Blues’ episode 139 – Roberts, Cubans, Puig, hot stove

On this episode of “Dugout Blues,” Jared Massey (Dodger Blue) and I rejoice over the hiring of Dave Roberts. Well, I do, at least. The Dodgers signed a couple Cuban players prior to selecting Roberts as manager, and we have the dirt (as much dirt as there can be) on them. Yasiel Puig got into a spot of bother over the long holiday weekend. Shockingly, it wasn’t as bad as...

Did the Los Angeles Dodgers Have a Successful Season?

The Los Angeles Dodgers showed up to win in 2015. With two of the top three finishers for the NL Cy Young award, their playoff rotation was stacked. In the end, the Dodgers went home while the Mets advanced to the NLCS, and then World Series before losing to the Royals. That’s not what ownership wants. That’s not what management wants. That’s not what the players want. Former...

After a lengthy, but generally undistinguished playing career (outside of one extremely important stolen base), Roberts began his coaching career with the San Diego Padres in 2011 as their third base coach. He quickly moved up the ranks to...

Greatest non-Cy Young seasons in history

Bryce Harper won the National League Most Valuable Player this season, and the vote was unanimous. Kris Bryant won the NL Rookie of the Year, and the vote was unanimous. Josh Donaldson‘s American League MVP victory wasn’t quite as clear-cut — 23 to seven over Mike Trout — and Dallas Keuchel‘s AL Cy Young even less so — 22 to eight over David Price. Still, most of the...

Clayton Kershaw isn’t the Clayton Kershaw of everything

I don’t know if Clayton Kershaw is going to win the Cy Young Award, but I know he deserves to as much as anybody else. Three years ago, he won the Cy Young by allowing a .521 OPS. Two years ago, he won the Cy Young by allowing a .521 OPS. This year, he might win the Cy Young after allowing a .521 OPS. Maybe he wouldn’t mind a loss so much; he’s already won three of these things...

Detailing the Dodgers' shortcomings

It didn’t take long for Don Mattingly, former Los Angeles Dodgers manager, to find work. Almost two weeks after agreeing to part ways with LA, with whom he spent five years, he was officially announced as the next manager of the poorly-run Miami Marlins.
