I competed my fourth trade with Eric from Manupatches and Mustaches. You can check out the first here, second here, and third here. As you all know, Eric is a Murad T51 connoisseur, and as such he wound up with a few doubles from this century-old set. I put in an inquiry for a pair of these awesome pieces of vintage goodness, and a "V" manupatch later, they were mine.This...
Rumors are bursting out of the seams in Dodgertown today. Dylan Hernandez kicks off the rumor update with his latest tweet, Hernandez says that the Dodgers are out on Jimmy Rollins. This doesn't come as a surprise at all, as the rumor never made sense from the beginning. Jon Heyman adds that Alfonso Soriano is a no-go for the Dodgers. Hernandez also says, the Dodgers...
After a brief hiatus, "Dugout Blues" is back on the air. In this episode, Jared Massey and I talk about a lot of the goings-on we missed, including the Dodgers' terrible offense, the return of Matt Kemp, Chase Headley trade rumors, Yasiel Puig signing, Corey Seager, a draft wrap-up and my most recent prospect rankings.
LOS ANGELES With one ferocious swing, Matt Kemp erased all of the frustration that had built up in him since his amazing start this season was curtailed by a damaged hamstring. At least it looked that way.
"Well, I'm not sure about that," said a smiling Kemp, whose two-run, 419 foot blast into the right field stands off Jonathan Papelbon gave the Dodgers a 5-3, 12...
Matt Kemp hit a two-run homer in the 12th inning, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers a 5-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday.
Rookie left-hander Jake Diekman (2-0) walked Mark Ellis with one out and Kemp drove a 1-0 pitch the other way into the pavilion seats in right-center for his 13th home run and sixth career walkoff homer, capping the 4-hour, 25-minute marathon...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have fallen behind in the National League West race and are now desperately trying to right the ship. With that in mind they have officially made an offer to the Chicago Cubs for right-hander Ryan Dempster.
The Dodgers have long been considered the front-runners for Dempster, but now the two sides have exchanged offers. Additionally, the Cubs would like to...
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Matt Kemp hit a two-run homer in the 12th inning, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers a 5-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday.

Matt Kemp is giving the Los Angeles Dodgers a much-needed lift.
The New York Mets could certainly use one to avoid spiraling out of the NL East race.
Kemp looks to lead the Dodgers to their third straight win as they continue this three-game series against the struggling Mets on Saturday.
In six games since returning from a hamstring injury that sidelined him six weeks, Kemp is...
So Matt Kemp won the game for the Dodgers yesterday by both beating out an infield single to tie the game and hitting a walk-off two-run bomb. Quite frankly though, I’m not sure what I was happier about, the fact that the game was tied (above), the fact that the game was won (below), or
The Dodgers were long overdue for a win and Matt Kemp was long overdue for a home run, and the 12th inning at Dodger Stadium saw both on Wednesday afternoon. Kemp’s walk-off home run gave the Dodgers a 5-3 win over the Phillies and snapped a four-game losing streak. It was Kemp's first homer since April 30, snapping a homer-less drought of 71 plate appearances. The Phillies...
The All-Star break is in the rear view and the trade deadline is on the horizon. Talks of the Mets aiming to pick up a reliever to continue as the Mets return home to play host to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
This isn’t the same Dodgers team the Mets handled extremely well on the west coast last time around, as Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier, the two blue centerpieces in L.A., are back...
Update 8:40pm: Jon Heyman is tweeting that the Dodgers and Cubs are still debating the prospects in the proposed deal.
Update 6:23pm: Ken Rosenthal tweets Zach Lee will not be part of the Dempster deal. A lot of speculation that it is Garrett Gould and Chris Withrow. Nothing confirmed yet.
