Chad Johnson hasn’t been doing so well lately, but it seems that his ex-wife is doing just fine for herself. Earlier this week, the former Patriots wide receiver was arrested in Florida after a warrant was issued for his arrest. The warrant stemmed from an altercation with his ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada, which allegedly violated Johnson’s probation. Johnson famously allegedly head-butted Lozada during an argument between the two back in August, and she quickly filed for divorce. So what’s a girl to do when her pro-athlete prince charming turns out to be a Toledo Bullfrog? (Johnson has never actually played arena football, but just go with the joke here.) Find a new pro-athlete beau, of course. Lozada has been dating former Red Sox and current Dodgers left fielder Carl Crawford, according to The website cites anonymous sources and “a few well-placed eyewitness accounts” in its report, and points out that Lozada was seen at Citi Field in a limousine while the Dodgers wer...

Don Mattingly has his ‘Wu-Tang moment’, keeps it real, we’ll see if it goes wrong

Yesterday, Don Mattingly had what I call a “Wu-Tang moment”, inspired by the “When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong” skit on Chappelle’s Show. Humorous? Yes, but what it mean to me is that Mattingly basically dropped all the fronts and simply went in on the Dodgers players and front office in surprisingly pointed comments. “We’re in last place in the National League West...

Dodgers move former pitching prospect Aaron Miller to the outfield

The Dodgers have a propensity for drafting players who are athletic and two-way guys. Darren Dreifort was one of the more notable ones, when the team made him the No. 2 draft pick in the 1993 MLB Draft. While most viewed him as a pitcher, the guy could hit. James Loney was viewed by many as a pitching prospect in 2002. The Dodgers made him a first baseman. Ethan Martin was...

A Struggling Matt Kemp: Health, Timing, And Swing Path

For better or for worse, the Dodgers offense has basically followed Matt Kemp’s lead since 2010. Following a breakout 2009 and the departure of Manny Ramirez, Kemp slumped miserably in 2010 and the team’s offense followed suit. He then single-handedly buoyed a terrible lineup in 2011, and he was well on his way towards doing the same in 2012 before injuries struck. The pressure...

Dodgers prez sides with Mattingly

When Don Mattingly said Wednesday that the Dodgers could not expect to win simply by putting together a collection of All-Stars, many interpreted the manager's remarks as criticism of the team's front office and ownership. Dodgers president Stan Kasten did not see it that way. "I know what Don is trying to do, what his intention is," Kasten told

Evelyn Lozada Says She & Chad Johnson Can’t Be Friends (Video)

When most relationships go downhill, it is difficult to remain friends. The only time I really seen it work is with Elaine and Jerry on Seinfeld. For a moment it looked like Evelyn and Chad were reunited, but that didn’t last very long and both have move on. Evelyn seems to be doing fine for himself, Chad not so much. Just like in sports there are winners and losers in relationship...

Evelyn Lozada dating a Dodger?

Hmmm could Evelyn Lozada be executing the trifecta? Lozada is allegedly becoming friendly with Dodgers player Carl Crawford per HipHollywood. Lozada’s camp is saying that rumors are false and that Evelyn and Carl haven’t even met. In case you were wondering about Crwadford’s contract, 7 year, $142 million signed back in 2010. According to several sources, and a few well placed...

It's not even June yet, but apparently it's not too early to begin speculating about Davey Johnson's successor. And so, with Don Mattingly on the hot seat in LA, CBS Sports' Danny Knobler did just that in a column on Thursday, speculating that if Mattingly gets fired, he could be on Mike Rizzo's radar as Davey's eventual replacement.
