Going into the 2015 season, it was widely speculated that the National League Rookie of the Year award was going to be a two horse race between the Cubs Kris Bryant and the Dodgers Joc Pederson. At the end of April it looked like that would indeed be the case, as Pederson was slashing .298/.461/.596 and had hit 4 home runs, while Bryant was in Chicago slashing an impressive .318...

Joc Pederson’s benching is complicated

Joc Pederson has started 110 games for the Los Angeles Dodgers in this, his rookie season. The Dodgers are 62-48 in those games. By most estimations, Pederson has been pretty good this year. He was an All-Star and has 23 home runs, mostly out of the leadoff spot for Don Mattingly. Just how many more of the team’s final 38 games Pederson starts, however, remains to be seen...

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...

Joc Pederson Enjoys His Ice Cream In Helmet Cups

Dodgers stud rookie Joc Pederson hit a home run in the sixth inning of the Dodgers’ battle with the New York Mets. It must have taken a lot out of him, because he fueled up afterwards with a special treat: A helmet cup full of ice cream: That’s Keith Hernandez you hear saying that he never saw anything like it.

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...
