Joc Pederson, his hands, and his September comeback

On August 19th, the Dodgers traded for Phillies second baseman Chase Utley. It was initially a puzzling move because although Howie Kendrick was down with a hamstring injury, Enrique Hernandez was on of the hottest hitters on the team at the time. Later though, it was revealed the trade wasn’t done to supplant Hernandez, but so that Hernandez could move to start in center field...

Dodgers 9, D’Backs 5: Seager and Pederson shine in win

Just as it was drawn up in spring training. Corey Seager and Joc Pederson led the Dodgers to a 9-5 win on Saturday night in Arizona.

He has been swinging th ebat awfully well of late, but...

What If Joc Pederson Can’t Turn It Around?

I know, I know: You all want to talk about the bullpen! And we will, probably! But this was already pre-loaded for Monday morning, and it’s still a relevant concern. So onward we march. You surely don’t need me to tell you that after a stellar start to 2015, it’s been a rough slide for Joc Pederson. I will anyway, though, roughly splitting his season into halves: Through June...

Dodgers send rookie to get coffee in full uniform

Joc Pederson is one of the best prospects in Major League Baseball, but that didn’t stop his teammates from sending him out on a rookie errand during his September call-up. The Los Angeles Dodgers sent the 22-year-old outfielder on a Starbucks run while they were in Chicago for their series against the Cubs, and they made him do it in full uniform. That just goes to show that...

Los Angeles Dodgers: The Legend of Joc Pederson

On Saturday, Los Angeles Dodgers top prospect Joc Pederson accomplished something that hadn’t been done in 80 years in the Pacific Coast League. Pederson stole his 30th base of the season for the Albuquerque Isotopes, making him the first PCL player since 1934 to steal 30 bases and hit 30 home runs. Most Dodger fans are quite aware of the potential of Pederson. If the Dodgers...

Minor league team giving away star player's old car

On Friday, August 29th, the Albuquerque Isotopes are giving away star outfielder Joc Pederson’s 1994 Buick Century in a raffle. The car, nicknamed “Little Chucky,” has only 166,000 miles on it and has at least one operable window, which is really all you need.

Dodgers' OF negative trade value makes Joc Pederson more valuable

There's a certain cognitive dissonance a lot of baseball fans feel between the value to the team of players' on-field contributions (almost always positive) as compared to the value minus the cost (not necessarily positive).When considering possible trades, you're not trading for just the player -- you're also trading for the contract. In baseball, you can cut a guy, but the money...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Three prospects that can make an impact this year

Last year, Yasiel Puig had a huge impact on the Dodgers. Last year, Yasiel Puig almost single-handedly turned the season around for the Los Angeles Dodgers. With a 23-32 record, the Dodgers called up the 22-year old outfielder and he made his impact immediately, turning the Dodgers from an expensive disappointment to a legitimate World Series threat. The Dodgers have plenty of highly...
