Sometimes a set comes out and you just know that no matter how hard you try money will soon be leaving your person. I knew that would be the case when I discovered that both Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw were included in the 2012 Bowman Red Ice parallel set, in which each card is numbered out of a scant 25. They've gone for a pretty penny, as you might imagine.But thankfully, just about any card eventually has a straggler or two that sells for far too low. If you play your cards right, you can be the beneficiary of that aberration, and I thankfully found myself on the awesome end of a bargain with Kemp's Red Ice. These cards are magnificent in-hand, as they have a bit of a psychedelic/night sky feel to them when the light hits them just right. My copy - numbered 22/25....woo, to Kersh's number - ran me a handful of coins under half a blaster.

2012 Los Angeles Dodgers Season Review: Starting Pitcher

Clayton Kershaw After Clayton Kershaw‘s 2011 performance, for which he won the Cy Young Award, I wasn’t sure I could be more impressed with him going forward. That’s not to say I was certain he had peaked, but it would no longer come as a surprise to me or anyone else. What impressed me so much about his 2012 season though, was the fact that he had another fantastic season...

2012 Los Angeles Dodgers Season Review: Relief Pitcher

Kenley Jansen Kenley Jansen entered 2012 as the set-up man with elite stuff, freed up to face the opponents’ best hitters should they be due up before the ninth inning. It was the perfect scenario, considering the closer role is a vastly overrated entity. Though Jansen was slotted correctly, he quickly found himself as the closer following some early struggles in that role by Javy...

If the Dodgers sign Zack Greinke, they'll need to trade a pitcher or two

You can never have too much pitching, but I think the Dodgers might take this notion a bit too far. The Dodgers are considered the front-runners this winter by multiple sources for the services of Zack Greinke. With the Dodgers' rotation already full, someone is going to have to go if the team does indeed sign the right-hander. But who? The Dodgers have Clayton Kershaw...

Los Angeles Dodgers entering into a Ponzi scheme with FOX?

“Anybody want to watch the World Series?”                                    -From the movie “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” One of these days, it may cost almost as much to watch the Dodgers from home as it does to go out to a live game. In an odd twist, Bud Selig(left) forced owner Frank McCourt out of baseball by nixing McCourt...

A Masterful Masterpiece of Chad Billingsley.

I'm a HUGE Chad Billingsley fan, and though he's perhaps the most polarizing Dodger of the last decade this side of Jonathan Broxton - I leave out Juan Pierre because the love for him was insane to begin with - I don't judge him on body language or any garbage like that. His stats speak for themselves, and he's been a very good pitcher over his LA career, and one...

How much money do the Dodgers really have to spend?

Stop me if you've heard this one before, "The Dodgers are considered the front runners to sign Zack Greinke."  Or was it Hiroki Kuroda?  Or Anibal Sanchez?  Or Kyuji Fujikawa?  Or Kevin Youkilis?  Or how about just every free agent ever? It seems that no matter what position a player plays or how much money he wants, the Dodgers want him.  Their greed and...

The Dodgers new TV deal might be even worse news for the Pirates than you think

When rumors about the Dodgers gargantuan new TV deal started floating around the internet yesterday, most people classified the reaction to the rumors as a "shockwave." It's true that the numbers are staggering: the deal's not finalized, but it will pay the Dodgers somewhere in the ballpark of $6-$7 billion over 25 years. That puts the annual figure in the $240...

5 Surprises: Hanley Ramirez Sticks at SS

Other than catcher, there might not be a more dismal offensive position than shortstop. While they aren’t as exciting to own as those five-tool outfielders or power-hitting corner infielders we still have to treat them equally! Speaking of all those other positions, you should check out those 2012 reviews: C | 1B | 2B | 3B Hanley Ramirez stays at shortstop, huzzah! From 2006-2009...

The Dodgers new TV deal with Fox could be worth more than $6 billion

With a deadline of Friday to get a deal done, Fox and the Los Angeles Dodgers could agree to a TV deal according to the LA Times worth over $6 billion, more than 20 times what the team is making on their current TV deal. This would put the Dodgers at the top of the class in terms of MLB TV rights. The proposed deal the Dodgers and Fox are discussing would be worth $240 million...
