Agent claims a handful of teams have interest in Chase Utley

Chase Utley is 36 years old and will be 37 by the time he reports to spring training in a few more months. The trajectories of the six-time All-Star and four-time Silver Slugger award winner have been well documented as he continues to age and his knees become more brittle by the day. Still, agents will be agents and Utley’s agent claims there are a handful of teams expressing...

2015 Positional Review: First Base

At some point Adrian Gonzalez has to start showing his age, but thankfully he didn’t show any signs of fading in 2015. A-Gon put up yet another solidly above-average season, and he continued to be a steadying presence in the lineup. The rest of the bunch? Well… ———- How The Dodgers First Basemen Fared   .283 AVG (7th)/.357 OBP (8th)/.495 SLG (7th)/135 wRC+ (6th)/4.1...

Fan Tries To Wrestle Foul Ball From Adrian Gonzalez’s Glove (Video)

  When a foul ball lands in the seats at a baseball game, it’s not uncommon to see people get in a tug-of-war to take home the souvenir. But if the ball happens to land in the glove of an actual player, you should probably leave it alone. Unfortunately, one fan at Dodger Stadium didn’t get that memo. During the fifth inning of Los Angeles’ game...

Fan attempts to wrestle ball away from Adrian Gonzalez, later gets ejected (video)

One thing sports fans need to understand when attending games is that they’re there to witness the action, not participate in it. A fan at Monday night’s Rockies-Dodgers game apparently didn’t get that memo. When Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez attempted to track down a pop fly in foul territory during the fifth inning of the game, a fan in a Red Sox hat tried to make...

The return of a different Adrian Gonzalez

By Jeff Sullivan I find that writing goes in phases, and they can be unpredictable. I don’t know when it’s going to be a good writing week. I don’t know when it’s going to be a bad writing week. And I don’t know what I’m next going to find interesting. For example, I feel like I spent a good year or two zoning in on pitch-framing, which I thought was just the coolest...

WATCH: Cubs fan catches foul ball while holding baby

Nobody puts baby in the corner — unless that someone is at a Chicago Cubs game and a foul ball flies their way. The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs played Tuesday night at Wrigley Field, but the best action took place in the stands. During the second inning, Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel popped a ball into the seats along the first base line, where 29-year-old Keith Hartley...

Three games into the season, Gonzalez’s bat is pure fire

Yes, it’s early. The 2015 MLB season hasn’t even completed its first week yet. As of this writing, no team has played more than three games. But if MVP awards were handed out before teams have finished their opening series of the year, Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez would probably hoard all the votes. In his first 13 plate appearances of the very young season, Gonzalez...

Adrian Gonzalez hits three HRs, off to historic start

Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is on quite the roll early this season. Repeating his power days from late last decade, the 32-year-old veteran has popped a ridiculous five homers in the team’s first three games. On Wednesday night alone, Gonzalez hit a homer in his first three at-bats against the division-rival San Diego Padres. As SB Nation points out,...

Dodgers sign Mexican 1B Eric Meza, Venezuelan C Keivert Ruiz

The Dodgers may have found the next Adrian Gonzalez. Well, not really. But they did sign Mexican first baseman in Eric Meza. They did so late on July 2, which is why he wasn’t in the first post about July 2 prospects. Meza’s bonus amount is unknown. Odds are, it wasn’t a significant amount of money and shouldn’t really have an impact on the Dodgers signing pool. Meza is...

Adrian Gonzalez poses with four old guys in Speedos

As you may know, the Los Angeles Dodgers are in Australia in advance of the team’s season-opening series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The official Twitter account of the Dodgers has been doing a phenomenal job of chronicling the trip, but sometimes revealing too much causes too much to be revealed. Case in point: The above […] The post Nightmare Fuel: Dodgers’ Adrian Gonzalez...
