2015 MLB Draft: Dodgers’ Big Board, v 1.0

This is the first of at least three Big Boards I will do leading up to the MLB Draft. This year’s draft isn’t nearly as deep as it has been in recent years. There are some elite(ish)-level guys who are dealing with injuries, which could cause them to fall down the board. The depth is also lacking a bit, which will test Billy Gasparino, Gabe Kapler and the like as they run their...

Gabe Kapler And Positioning Prospects To Succeed

Here’s a dirty open secret about minor league ballplayers: They eat just horribly, many of them. Part of that’s simply just a reflection of age and culture. Think about what you were like at 18, 19, 20, away from home for the first time. Think about the garbage you probably ate. That’s just human nature, the first crack at a life without restrictions. A few years ago, there...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Freaks and Geeks?

The Los Angeles Dodgers are in the process of revamping their front office, and are doing so in a Moneyball fashion. A few weeks ago, the Dodgers announced that Ned Colletti would not remain the team’s general manager.

Is Gabe Kapler Coming To The Dodgers? (Yes, Please!)

In my senior year of college, I interned for NESN, which is basically the Red Sox equivalent of SNLA, except that people can see it. That gave me some great access and stories, and one of the things I vividly remember was standing on the warning track outside the first base dugout and watching a 27-year-old outfielder who had just been acquired from Colorado warm up, and being completely...

What’s wrong with Allen Craig? Gabe Kapler dissects

Kapler: ‘I would be playing Oscar daily’

Gabe Kapler can remember a young Dustin Pedroia, who in 2006 was just a small second baseman trying to make it in the Major Leagues. Pedroia tallied 98 plate appearances in his rookie season on his way to a .191 batting average with just two home runs and seven RBIs. He entered the 2007 season, [...]
