Kemp flourishes with Lopes in his corner

GLENDALE, Ariz. Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp isn't into rehashing bad memories. A year ago, he emerged as one of the premier players in baseball. This year, he's looking forward to adding to the legacy. He is having fun again. It wasn't always that way. Today, the talk about Matt Kemp is his MVP potential, his self-created expectation that he could...

Finding Keepers: Los Angeles Dodgers

With all the off the field distractions last year concerning Frank McCourt, its easy to forget about the actual team on the field. The Los Angeles Dodgers did manage to finish above .500 last year and with Clayton Kershaw winning the Cy Young and Matt Kemp finishing second in the MVP voting, the Dodgers have two of the best players in the NL. However, even with the talent at the...

Trade With Play At The Plate: Clayton Kershaw - All-Star. American. Pie.

I completed my second trade with Brian from Play At The Plate. He pulled a relic of my favorite pitcher, and I had to inquire as to its availability. He was gracious enough to send it my way, even though I have - as of yet - no idea what to send in return.I really like these Topps Update All-Star Game Relics. Of course, it's Kid K, so I would like it regardless of what it was...

2012 Top 20 Prospects – Los Angeles Dodgers

It’s prospect season again. I’ve had my rankings listed on team pages, but have been horrible about keeping those up to date. As I mentioned on the pages, I’m looking at other rankings when I make mine (along with scouting reports and my own opinion). Now the Dodgers. For the top 20, I’ve listed them according to my ranking. I’ve also listed the rankings of other sites...

Will A.J. Ellis Develop Any Power?

The Dodgers ranked 30th in our positional power rankings for catchers last week in a close race with the Pirates. Matt Treanor, the backup catcher, doesn’t have anything left and it’s unclear what Tim Federowicz will provide or how often he will even play. The de facto starter, A.J. Ellis, is better suited for backup duty yet will likely amass 450+ PAs. Put together, it’s an...

Rivera, Dodgers tag Weaver, rout Angels

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver had a lot of trouble locating his pitches. The Los Angeles Dodgers' hitters had no problem finding them.
