Found November 19, 2012 on Dodgers Rumors:
The Dodgers met Monday with Korean left-hander Ryu Hyun-Jin and his agent, Scott Boras. There is no love lost between Boras and the Dodgers. As a matter of fact there is a lot of bitterness towards Boras among a lot of Dodgers executives. The Dodgers have been very reluctant to work with Boras over the last couple of years, perhaps with the new owners around, the Dodgers are could be making amends with the powerhouse agent. I’ve never been a big fan of ol’ Boras myself,  and the Dodgers should tread lightly when dealing with MLB’s snake in the grass. Regardless, it’s doubtful that an offer was made anyway. Los Angeles paid a $25.7MM posting free for exclusive negotiating rights with Ryu, but the club is expected to wait until the December Winter Meetings to begin real contract talks. That should give the club enough time to come up with a gameplan that will dethrone the San Francisco Giants. The best news in all this is, should the Dodgers fail to work out a deal with the 25-year-old southpaw, they will get their money back.

2012 Los Angeles Dodgers Season Review: Infield and Catchers

The Dodgers should have a strong infield heading into 2013, and I'm basing that solely on the fact the Dodgers have two potentially elite offensive talents at shortstop and third base. This season, they acquired those guys later, so their impact wasn't felt as much. The team also has found its starting catcher for the next couple of years (at least) and should be in the...

Down On The Farm: Winter Leagues – Puig, Erickson, Pederson, Santiago, Castellanos

The Arizona Fall League wrapped up this week with the Mesa Solar Sox — the team with eight Dodger prospects — finishing in last place with a 10-20 record. Now, it wasn’t all the Dodger prospects fault, but there were some, shall we say, not-so-great performances from some of the fellas. I’m going to keep my eye on the Puerto Rican Winter League now, as Yasiel Puig made his...

Juan Uribe : Bad Contract

When you think about bad contracts the Dodgers have made, you seem to pin point Juan Uribe. The Dodgers will have paid him by the end of his contract $21 million dollars. He is one of the most expensive bench players around the league. Honestly this guy is out of his golden days, and really was not worth $21 million, nor half of that. Let’s just hope the Ned doesn’t make another...

Dodgers Set Sights On Hyun-jin

By SBRForum.com While many have been talking about how barren the Los Angeles Dodgers’ pitching staff looked near the end of the season, the team had not made any major moves towards getting a fresh face for the lineup.  That is, until this past week when they secured the rights to negotiated with one Ryu Hyun-jin.  By securing Hyun-jin, the Dodgers could solidify themselves...

2012 Los Angeles Dodgers Season Review: Left Field

Left field has been, is, and will in all likelihood continue to be, a vast wasteland for the Dodgers. That is, unless Carl Crawford returns to his Tampa Bay form in 2013 or the Yasiel Puig era — whenever that actually begins — proves to be worth the wait. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s review 2012, which was a comedy of mediocrity flanking Matt Kemp‘s right...

Dodgers add prospects Matt Magill and Steve Ames to 40-man roster

In an unsurprising move, the Dodgers today added right-handed pitchers Matt Magill and Steve Ames to their 40-man roster, thus protecting them from December's Rule 5 Draft. Both were members of the Chattanooga Lookouts this season and both performed well. I named Magill my Dodgers' Minor League Pitcher of the Year in September after he was the Lookouts' best starting...

Ames, Magill promoted to Dodgers' 40-man roster

Right-handed pitchers Steven Ames and Matt Magill were promoted to the Dodgers 40-man roster, making them ineligible to be selected by other teams in the Rule 5 draft next month. The Dodgers now have 38 players on their 40-man roster. Ames, a 24-year-old reliever, saved 18 games and posted a 1.54 earned-run average for double-A Chattanooga this year. He struck out 72 batters in...

The Next Chapter

So you may or may not have noticed but over the last few weeks Dodgers Rumors has been rather quiet. Well three weeks ago, during an update install, one little file didn’t get updated properly causing the admin portion of the site to crash. After hours upon hours of troubleshooting I figured out the problem. So I am thinking, no big deal, 20 hours down the drain, but no biggie...

In less than three months, players will be telling us how theyre all in the best shape of their lives and think this will be the season they can win the World Series. Like in any other year.

News Corp, the behemoth company that owns Fox and formerly owned the Los Angeles Dodgers, has purchased 49% of the YES Network, which exclusively airs New York Yankee games in the New York area media market. This is flying under the radar, but it's a pretty big deal. With News Corp now as the majority owner in YES, purchasing shares from Yankees Global Enterprises, Goldman...
