Clayton Kershaw Is One of A Kind, Yet The Dodgers Risk His Health?

As I watch the Dodgers allow an injured Clayton Kershaw to pitch down the stretch as the team's playoff hopes stand at something like 5-10%, I'm reminded how stupid and short-sighted this organization has been, can be, and is. There is in fact baseball beyond 2012 guys. Remember that as you allow Kershaw to pitch with a hip injury that - even though doctors say it can'...

Two Dodgers' draftees make Pioneer League's best prospects list

Dodgers' 2012 first-round pick Corey Seager on Thursday was named the fourth-best prospect in the Pioneer League by Baseball America. Seager had a nice showing in the league after a somewhat slow start. He posted a .304/.383/.520 triple slash with eight home runs, nine doubles, a surprising eight stolen bases and a 10.4 percent walk rate. The 18-year-old played shortstop...

Ned Colletti thinks Adrian Gonzalez has done swell + makes excuses for Dodgers performance

I previously complimented (sorta) Ned Colletti for potentially taking a sabermetric stance on the issue of Andre Ethier hitting against lefties, but after reading the rest of the interview with Barry Bloom of MLB.com, perhaps I spoke too soon. MLB.com: Do you think there has been enough time for all these parts to fit together? ...

The Angels might let Dan Haren walk; should the Dodgers pursue him?

As the Dodgers attempt to hold onto their less than 1 percent chance at making the playoffs after exploding for eight runs on Wednesday, I'm looking at a potential starting pitcher they could look at this winter. I wrote last week the Dodgers were a lock to sign Zack Greinke this offseason. I still think they'll go after him, but an intriguing name could be available...

Adrian Beltre says Eric Gagne should have 'named names'

Eric Gagne claims in his upcoming biography that 80% of the Los Angeles Dodgers took PEDs when he was with the team.

The Los Angeles Dodgers need wins and plenty of help if they're going to reach the postseason. They could also use a healthy Clayton Kershaw.
