Nathan Eovaldi makes the Dodgers look smart for not signing Roy Oswalt

Look, there's no debating the illustrious career of Roy Oswalt, but perhaps it was a good thing he didn't sign with the Dodgers. Oswalt signed with the Rangers on Tuesday -- 1 year, $5 million plus $1 million in incentives. That's a pretty decent price and I wouldn't have been opposed to the Dodgers picking him up on a similar deal. But when Nathan Eovaldi has...

Dodgers: Kemp a 'long shot' for ASG

Dodgers Announce Vin Scully Bobblehead Giveaway on August 30 (Photo)

The impossible has happened! The Dodgers have announced that they will be giving away Vin Scully bobbleheads later this season, in honor of their Hall of Fame broadcaster.

The Dodgers are 32-18 and have a 5.5 game lead for first place. They have the best record in baseball. However, you can still buy tickets to watch the Dodgers play for under a dollar. Wow… Financial problems or not, 75 cents is crazy. I thought the Mets and their 5 dollar tickets was crazy.
