Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly never won a World Series with the New York Yankees, but he'll forever be remembered as one of the greatest players in the team's storied history.
"Donnie Baseball" can expect to hear that appreciation Tuesday night when the Dodgers visit the Bronx for the first time since clinching the 1981 World Series.
Mattingly, a six-time All-Star, nine-time Gold Glove winner and the 1985 AL MVP, had his No. 23 retired to Monument Park after playing his entire 14-year career with the Yankees. The former first baseman never made it to the World Series, though, hanging it up in 1995, right before the Yankees' run of four titles in five seasons.
Mattingly returned to the Yankees in 2004 as a coach under Joe Torre, but the Yankees failed to advance to the World Series in his four seasons on the bench. Mattingly, many thought, would replace Torre after the team's longtime manager turned down a one-year offer, but Yankees brass opt...

A.J. Ellis was activated from the disabled list after dealing with an oblique injury.
The Dodgers on Friday activated catcher A.J. Ellis from the disabled list, before the start of a three-game weekend series against the Pirates at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. To make room in the roster, the Dodgers designated Ramon Hernandez for assignment.
Good to have A.J. back, as the Dodgers could...
Back in the 1980s, when the New York Yankees were in a championship drought, there was one player most fans were inevitably drawn to.
The gritty first baseman with the thick eye black. The guy who crouched low and then uncoiled that sweet, powerful swing from the left side of the plate.
During a rare down period for baseball's most successful franchise, Don...
The Los Angeles Dodgers season has not started how they way that they envisioned it. They were expected to compete in their division for a playoff spot. The injuries that they have suffered have put a wrench into those plans.
They are missing key players on their team like Matt Kemp and Carl Crawford, which has hindered their offense.
The pitching has been the strength for the team...
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher, Clayton Kershaw is upset that talks of his contract extension were leaked, according to the LA Times.

The contract would be worth more than $180 million...
With the new collective bargaining agreement, teams are much

The 2013 Dodgers' draft doesn't look nearly as impressive as the 2012 class, but there are few future contributors in this group.
The Dodgers seemingly changed their approach, opting for college players with nine of their first 10 picks -- a change from the norm. Logan White is known for drafting high schoolers and developing them.
Positional breakdown (round number...
I'm snatching up Matt Kemp cardboard as best I can while he heals from his hamstring injury and continues to work his way back from the serious shoulder injury he suffered last season. I have not and never will forgive the Dodgers for allowing him to play through it, thus exacerbating it. Anyhoo, the latest deal I was able to secure is of the truly unique and one-of-a-kind variety...
The Dodgers wrapped up their 2013 MLB Draft a while ago, but reactions are still rolling in. For the most part, pundits seem to agree that the Dodgers went conservative, electing for low-ceiling, low-risk picks. I felt the same way about the team’s selections, so there’s not much to argue back-and-forth with in that regard.

The first day of summer arrives on Friday, but somehow it feels like the dog days have already come and gone. The baseball season is almost three months old, and neither the Angels nor the Dodgers have gotten hot, or even tepid.
They are, as Dodgers manager Don Mattingly frequently says about his team, treading water a combined 19 games under .500 and 18 games out of first place...

The Los Angeles Dodgers were able to overcome the fact that their bullpen now has a Major League leading 15 blown saves this season as they held on Saturday afternoon in 11 innings to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-3.

Updates on the major news across Major League Baseball during the 11th week of the season. Dodgers sensation Yasiel Puig was named National League Player of the Week.
Phil Hughes (3-5, 4.89 ERA) and the Yankees are back on the east coast after a long (and disappointing) west coast trip to take on Hyun-Jin Ryu (6-2, 2.85 ERA) and the Dodgers (and Don Mattingly) in the first game of two. Hughes has been hot and cold all year, and his last outing against Oakland would certainly be in the cold category. He threw 95 pitches and lasted just 4 1...
