MLB   |   Los Angeles Dodgers  


The Dodgers and Royals dealt with sunk costs. The Rangers must as well.

The Dodgers cut Carl Crawford and the Royals cut Omar Infante despite owing them substantial amounts of money, and successfully avoided the sunk cost fallacy. Will the Rangers do the same with Prince Fielder? The concept of sunk costs gets mentioned from time to time in the game of baseball. It always involves baseball teams that cannot move on from an aging, expensive player because...

Dodgers Release Carl Crawford Despite Plans for Designated Assignment

It was announced on June 5th that the Los Angeles Dodgers were designating former All-Star outfielder Carl Crawford on assignment. Crawford has played four seasons with the Dodgers, and still has $35 million on his contract through 2017. However, there’s no denying that Crawford’s skills have diminished noticeably over the past few seasons. It therefore comes as no surprise that...

The Dodgers have done us all a solid and designated Carl Crawford for assignment, removing him from the 40-man roster and likely ending his career with this franchise. They’re replacing him on the roster with Austin Barnes, who has been recalled from AAA. I, of course, am a super genius for predicting this last night. Dodgers, plz. — Chad Moriyama...

Necessary Moves: Carl Crawford, Los Angeles Dodgers

Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded, but more along the lines of a “what if” scenario.

Carl Crawford’s Rehab Progressing Well

Carl Crawford hadn’t done much in his first two rehab games in Albuquerque, striking out twice with a single in five plate appearances, and that’s not a big deal. Yeah, it’s about Crawford getting his timing down after missing well over a month since his ankle injury, but it’s mostly about showing that the ankle is healthy. So far tonight against El Paso, he’s doing just...
