My 2012 Los Angeles Dodgers' minor league Players of the Year

It was an interesting year in the Dodgers' farm system. The team made a bunch of trades that hurt the system's depth. In fact, they traded away the likely winner of this award, Leon Landry, in the Brandon League deal. Hitter of the Year OF Joc Pederson, Rancho Cucamonga .313/.396/.516, 18 HR, 70 RBI, 96 R, 26 SB - Pederson started off the season slowly, hitting...

Shoulder injury shelves Dodgers' Lilly

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Ted Lilly gave a valiant effort for over three months, trying to come back from a shoulder injury that has sidelined him since May. But on Friday that quest to return ended as he was shut down for the season. Lilly will have arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder Sept. 21, performed in Los Angeles by team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache. The procedure...

Dodgers' Ted Lilly Done for the Season

The Los Angeles Dodgers were dealt another blow, albeit an expected one, yesterday.  The club announced yesterday that left-hander Ted Lilly will undergo shoulder surgery next Friday and is expected back next spring.  The surgery is not a major fix.  It's simply a procedure to clean up the shoulder and help relieve discomfort. According to Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles...

D-backs finish season domination of Dodgers

PHOENIX If the Diamondbacks had played the rest of the league like they played the Los Angeles Dodgers this season, the NL wild card race would be a lot wilder than it is right now.

Josh Beckett thrown out at first by right fielder

There are embarrassing plays in baseball that demonstrate either a person is lazy and apathetic, or, perhaps as a free pass, may not be quite so fleet of foot, and then there are embarrassing plays that leave you scratching your head and almost feeling sorry for a guy. Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett being retired at [...]

Carlos Beltran throws Josh Beckett out at first base from right field (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Welcome back to the National League, Josh. Those of you who somehow missed all the stuff about pitchers pounding beers and hawking down fried chicken in Boston last year may not know this, but Josh Beckett isn’t exactly a model of fitness. Watching him swing a bat during interleague play when he was with the Red Sox was always entertaining...

A GIF Representation Of My Thoughts On A-Gon’s Backwards K, With Help From Trauma Dog

Yesterday, with the Dodgers down by one run and the tying run on second in the top of the ninth, Adrian Gonzalez struck out … because of course. It unfortunately reminded me of Carlos Beltran‘s infamous at-bat against Adam Wainwright in the NLCS, though obviously nowhere near as dramatic. With the help of who I... Read More »

Hanley Ramirez: Are the Marlins winning without me?

Hanley Ramirez may have been a problem in Miami, but he was not the problem. If he was truly a malcontent in the clubhouse and was hurting the team off the field, the Marlins did the right thing in getting rid of him. On Thursday, Marlins team president David Samson told MLB.com the following when asked why Ramirez was traded to the Dodgers. “We just realized we couldn’t win...
