Found February 05, 2013 on Feelin' Kinda Blue:
This is the third in a four-part series projecting the Dodgers' full-season minor league teams. Up next, the Chattanooga Lookouts. Part 1 of 4: Great Lakes Loons Part 2 of 4: Rancho Cucamonga Quakes Of all the Dodgers' minor league teams, this one should be the best. Once you see the roster, you'll see what I'm talking about. The Lookouts were the only full-season Dodger minor league affiliate to make the postseason, thanks to a 41-29 second half. Pederson Chattanooga faced off against the Jackson Generals (Mariners), filled with a bevy of prospects (James Paxton, Taijuan Walker and Mike Zunino, just to name a few). Jackson took the first two games of the series before an absolutely dominant pitching performance by Chattanooga gave the team its only playoff win. Jackson would take the series with in the next game. Led by Nick Buss, Blake Smith and J.T. Wise, the Lookouts actually struggled a bit. They received some late-season reinforce...

ZiPS projects the 2013 Dodgers: Good but not great

The 2013 projection for the Dodgers from Dan Szymborski‘s ZiPS system was released last week, and given that it’s probably my favorite forecasting tool, it’s worth a look to see how the team fared. Forecasting is not a complete science, obviously, and I’ll address some of the potential pitfalls as we go along, but it’s better to use objective tools like these than the hopes...

Dodgers switch roles of Chris Withrow, Pedro Baez + invite 17 non-roster to camp

The Dodgers have officially converted former starting pitcher Chris Withrow to relief and former third baseman Pedro Baez to pitching. FINALLY Personally, I’ve seen both Withrow and Baez in those roles for a couple years now (maybe Baez for longer given his swing), and I think most evaluators began to agree within the last year, so it’s good to see the Dodgers follow suit. Withrow...

Dodgers' farm system getting better-than-expected praise from prospectors

Keith Law is the third noted prospector to rank the Dodgers' farm system in the middle-third, joining John Sickels of Minor League Ball and Baseball America. Law ranked the system 18th, while Sickels and BA ranked it 19th. This is what Law had to say about the Dodgers' system: "They are a little underrepresented in the top 100, but with a lot of guys who'd...

Magic Johnson: World Series is Goal for 2013 Dodgers

Magic Johnson brought five titles to the city of Los Angeles during his time with the Lakers. Eight days before pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training, Johnson wants everyone to know that it will be a disappointment if he does not bring them a sixth. Last August, the Dodgers pulled off a blockbuster deal with the Red Sox, acquiring Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Adrian...

Podcast: 'Dugout Blues' episode 22 - Dodgers, Ross Stripling interview, prospects, minors, listener questions

On this episode of "Dugout Blues," Jared Massey (L.A. Dugout) and I interview Dodgers' pitching prospect Ross Stripling. He was the team's 2012 fifth-round selection and gives us a lot of insight to his increased velocity, his first season as a pro and what he did on draft day. We examine the Dodger prospects who made Keith Law's Top 100 list. There were...

Cactus League countdown: L.A. Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers came to spring training a year ago with a myriad of issues: Ownership was in flux, right fielder Andre Ethier wanted a contract extension and skeptics wondered if Don Mattingly could do much with his team. This year is a very different story. Since being sold last April, the Dodgers have become the Yankees of the West, seemingly spending however much it takes...

2013 Fantasy Preview: Los Angeles Dodgers The Dodgers won 86 games while finishing a disappointing second to the eventual World Champion Giants in the NL West, but that was still a four-win improvement over 2011, and given the massive payroll increase over the past few months, big things are expected from this team in 2013. The July trade deadline saw the club acquire SS/3B Hanley...
