Los Angeles Dodgers: Breaking down the competition

During the Winter Meetings, the Los Angeles Dodgers were perhaps the busiest team, completely overhauling their roster in an effort to improve the team on and off the field. Since then, the Dodgers have been relatively quiet, opening the door for other top teams in the National League to steal the headlines and make blockbuster moves. Here’s a breakdown of what the Dodgers’ main...

Dodgers Sign Submariner Ben Rowen, A Name Worth Remembering

When I saw Baseball America‘s Matt Eddy tweet that the Dodgers had signed pitcher Ben Rowen and infielder Jarek Cunningham to minor league deals, my first reaction was “who?” followed quickly by “ha, ‘Jarek’ sure is a name.” With no inclination to worry about either, I quickly moved on. But then I started thinking that I knew Rowen’s name for some reason, and after...

Yoan Moncada: The Current International Man of Mystery

As we enter the stretch run of baseball’s hot stove season and watch James Shields march inexorably towards the same fate that befell Ervin Santana in his 2014 free agency which resulted in Santana ultimately taking the same one year, $14.1 million dollar contract he was offered at the beginning of the free agency period, there is a name being whispered throughout all of baseball...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Who’s the set up man?

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been anything but quiet this off-season. Making multiple moves to completely change the complexion of their roster. From a team that last season was predicated on their offensive fire power to a team that now wants defensive efficiency. Team President Andrew Friedman has been doing all he can to make cost effective moves that not only improve the team...

Los Angeles Dodgers Rumors: Additional relief pitcher

It’s been a crazy offseason for the Los Angeles Dodgers. There have been many trades and changes made from the 2014 season. This upcoming season should be interesting watching the players adjust to one another and build a strong chemistry on the field, which could either be positive or negative. However, the Dodgers have another concern at hand. According to rumors, the Dodgers...

2015 Dodgers Top 100 Prospects: No. 75-51

Here is the first set of rankings in my Top 100 prospect series. There are some names people will recognize, but on the whole, there’s a ton of players many do not know. Previous entries in the series: Introduction 100-76 If I had to choose a player I’m most excited about on this portion of the list, I’d go with No. 62. The power potential is really intriguing.

Enjoy Your Last Year of Zack Greinke, Probably

I think we knew that, barring serious injury, Zack Greinke was going to exercise his post-2015 opt-out clause from the second he signed his deal back in December of 2012. In fact, I said exactly as much back then: Rosenthal argues (and many fans would agree) that an opt-out is poor for the team, but I’m actually pretty thrilled with it, especially if a seventh year and a full...

Dodgers sign veteran lefty Erik Bedard

The Dodgers have added another free agent. Erik Bedard joins the Dodgers on a minor league deal after spending the 2014 season with the Rays. Bedard, 35, was once one of the better pitchers in baseball but injuries and just plain ineffectiveness have been a trademark of his career. A season ago he appeared in 17 games including 15 starts while posting a 4.76 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP...

Confident Crawford Eager to Fill Rollins' Shoes

Now that Jimmy Rollins is officially a Dodger, the focus of the Phillies shortstop position doesn't really focus on Freddy Galvis. Rather, the depature of Rollins will make fans zero in more so on the development of top prospect, JP Crawford. Earlier this week, Crawford along with Aaron Nola and...

SportsNet LA cable deals likely won’t be done by Opening Day

As the year-long SportsNet LA saga continues in southern California, it’s becoming more and more clear that the network won’t have a deal done with DirecTV and other holdout providers before Opening Day. However, many of the issues getting a deal done have little to do with the network or the Dodgers – it’s all about the pending mergers of DirecTV/AT&T and Comcast/Time...

Brian Wilson Shows Up in Sin City

I’m pretty certain no one has mentioned the words “Brian Wilson” since the reliever was released by the Los Angeles Dodgers back on December 19. It’s almost as if he, wait for it, disappeared. Turns out, he’s been in Las Vegas! Spotted at @pennjillette & @MrTeller's show last night was three-time MLB All-Star pitcher, @BrianWilson38. —...

How Did Pedro Martinez Get Bombed?

Clayton Kershaw is coming off what was legitimately one of the best starting-pitcher seasons of all time. Though he would miss a few turns due to injury, that problem was quickly forgotten, as Kershaw still approached 200 innings and finished with both an ERA and an FIP that were half the league average. There was […]

Hyun-Jin Ryu: Quietly Awesome

Hyun-Jin Ryu isn’t the best Dodger starter, because Clayton Kershaw exists. He’s not the second-best Dodger starter, because Zack Greinke exists. If you can’t even make a case for being one of the two best starters on your own team, it’s going to be very difficult to make the case that you’re one of the […]

Dodgers close to signing ex-prospect banned for alleged game fixing

Most minor league signings don’t generate much of a buzz during the hot stove season. They’re generally cheap, low risk signings made to ensure depth. Yet, the Los Angeles Dodgers are close to signing a player with an interesting background. Taiwanese pitcher Chin-hui Tsao was a four-time top 100 prospect during his years with the Rockies, but was unimpressive in 88 1/3 career...

Be very afraid of the revamped Los Angeles Dodgers

Just when we had gotten use to the new Los Angeles Dodgers and their bottomless, oft-used wallet, they’ve gone and changed it up once again. There was once a time where the Dodgers couldn’t say no to an expensive veteran and could give a contract extension to just about anyone on the roster. They were a good team, but not the elite team many had thought they could become. But...
