Found June 21, 2013 on Feelin' Kinda Blue:
The Dodgers won't lose their 2014 first-round pick after J.P. Hoornstra tweeted me some good news. Respectively: 360K, 40K, 5K. RT @FeelinKindaBlue Any idea the bonuses Underwood (5th round), Farmer (8th) and Keener (10th) received? — J.P. Hoornstra (@jphoornstra) June 21, 2013 I wrote on Monday the Dodgers were dangerously close to going over their draft spending pool limit. Luckily, the bonuses given to J.D. Underwood (5th-rounder, $360,000), Kyle Farmer (8th, $40,000) and Nick Keener (10th, $5,000) kept the Dodgers in the black.

Dodgers rumors: Andre Ethier likely to be traded

For the time being, the Los Angeles Dodgers have enough at-bats to keep Andre Ethier and Yasiel Puig in their starting lineup. Even after fellow outfielders Matt Kemp and Carl Crawford return from the disabled list, manager Don Mattingly is confident that there will be enough playing time to go around to allow LA to keep all four in the majors. Mark Saxon of ESPN isn't quite...

Dodgers set to pay a penalty on draft signings, but won’t lose 2014 pick

The Dodgers are set to pay a financial penalty for going over their draft bonus pool limit, but won’t have to pay the severe penalty of losing a 2014 draft pick. There was legit reason to worry, as our own Dustin Nosler pointed out, because the team was in questionable territory with the bonuses of J.D. Underwood, Kyle Farmer, and Nick Keener to go. ===== Dodgers 2013 Draft Recap...

A Corey Seager 1/1 Printing Plate-Auto Completes Another Pentafecta.

I recently acquired a stunningly gorgeous card that jumps to the top of the mountain that is my Corey Seager Collection. I knew I had to lock down this beaut when it popped up on eBay and thankfully my winning bid was far less than what I anticipated the card selling for. Adding to my Seager Trifecta was also free as I had some focus group money left to play and pay with.This is...

Trade With My Cardboard Habit: Matt Kemp Black Gypsy and Ginter Needs.

I completed my first trade with Judson from My Cardboard Habit. Judson contacted me about a hit he had that didn't fit into his collection. I was interested, and after a couple of e-mails this gorgeous Matt Kemp 2013 Gypsy Queen swatch became the newest addition to my Bison PC.Black-bordered cards just can't be beat. I also received five much needed cards from my 2012 Ginter...

Dodgers' draft strategy isn't as high school-oriented as it's perceived

Since Logan White took over as scouting director (now vice president of amateur scouting and assistant general manager), the Dodgers have been known for drafting high school players. White’s first draft pick was James Loney in 2002, a high school first baseman (who some viewed as a pitcher) from Texas. While White’s crew has selected prep players in the first...

Los Angeles Dodgers, Clayton Kershaw Fall Once Again

Clayton Kershaw equaled his season high giving up four earned runs Friday night in the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2 loss to the San Diego Padres. The Dodgers defense certainly didn’t lend a helping hand to Kershaw while committing two errors which now puts them in a dead heat with the Houston Astros for the most errors in Major League Baseball. The game began with Padres starter Clayton...

A Yasiel Puig All-Star nod is inevitable

There has been a lot of rabble going into the All-Star Game next month about Dodgers rookie phenom Yasiel Puig potentially getting named to the team after just 15 games. Bruce Bochy of the Giants, manager of this year's NL squad, said he'd be hard-pressed to add Puig to the roster. And honestly, I can see both sides of the argument on this one. Puig has been sensational...

Greinke sharp as LA downs rival

Zack Greinke allowed one run over eight sharp innings, Adrian Gonzalez ended a wild Edinson Volquez's no-hit bid with a homer in the sixth and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the San Diego Padres 6-1 Saturday night. In his first outing in San Diego since breaking his collarbone in a brawl with Carlos Quentin, Greinke had a season-high eight strikeouts. He allowed four hits and...

Los Angeles Dodgers Drop Opener, Yasiel Puig Homers Again

Pedro Ciriaco provided a pair of big hits late in Thursday night’s game helping the San Diego Padres to a 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. The loss drops the Dodgers to 8.5 games behind division leading Arizona Diamondbacks including six games behind the Padres who moved into sole possession of third in the NL West. Ciriaco has had a nice start for the Padres after being...

Mike Trout and Yasiel Puig: A Hustle Double Comparison

The most exciting play in baseball, within context, is presumably the walk-off grand slam with two outs and a three-run deficit. Within context, I imagine it’s almost a perfect correlation between play excitement and Win Probability Added. This is why WPA works as both a baseball statistic and emotion statistic. Any immediate reversal of deficit to victory is going to be outstanding...

Everyone has fallen short in identifying the true cause of the bench clearing brawl between the Dodgers and the Diamondbacks.

Everyone has fallen short of identifying the true cause of all the bench clearing brawls and suspensions: namely the a priori assumption on the part of almost everyone who covers this sport that pitching high and tight is “just part of the game”—like missed signs and blown calls. Human nature being what it is, the problem is that giving pitchers that much latitude engenders...
