Cameron Spencer/Getty Images AsiaPac As Juan Uribe patiently stood in the batter’s box facing a 2 balls and 2 strikes count on Friday night’s game versus Arizona’s closer Addison Reed; with the Dodgers trailing the Diamondbacks 2 to 1.

Dodgers @ Giants April 16, 2014: The Problem With Juan Uribe’s Offense

Juan Uribe has been getting a lot of praise for his offense so far this year. And rightfully so: Uribe currently leads the Dodgers’ batters in wRC+. However, he’s taken an unusual path to get there. So far this season, Uribe has not drawn a single walk. Including last year’s postseason (when he didn’t draw any walks either), Uribe has gone 101 plate appearances since his...

Los Angeles Dodgers facing uncertainty at second base

Los Angeles Dodgers General Manager Ned Colletti (mlb.com) Entering the offseason many envisioned the Los Angeles Dodgers would be big spenders and extremely active. The winter meetings have come and gone, but the Dodgers have been relatively quiet.

Dodgers re-sign Juan Uribe to 2-year deal, save us from Michael Young

In a move that was overdue, the Dodgers on Saturday re-signed Juan Uribe to a 2-year contract. It's the smart, somewhat safe play, but I find myself feeling a touch disappointed about this deal.Uribe had been holding out for three years. As the best free agent third baseman, he would have been foolish not to. He drew alleged interest from the Marlins, Rays and White Sox.I'...

2013 Los Angeles Dodgers Season Review: Third Basemen

Juan Uribe Juan Uribe‘s 2011 and 2012 campaigns with the Dodgers were so bad that he could have easily been cut heading into the 2013 season and nobody would have been able to argue against such a move. What a difference a year makes. Uribe was still with the club when the season opened, but he was sent to the bench in favor of 2012 flavor of the month Luis Cruz. After an early...

Juan Uribe : Bad Contract

When you think about bad contracts the Dodgers have made, you seem to pin point Juan Uribe. The Dodgers will have paid him by the end of his contract $21 million dollars. He is one of the most expensive bench players around the league. Honestly this guy is out of his golden days, and really was not worth $21 million, nor half of that. Let’s just hope the Ned doesn’t make another...

Dodgers need to rid themselves of Juan Uribe as soon as possible

It's no secret I've been against the Juan Uribe deal since he signed with the team two winters ago. I'm not usually in the business of saying "I told you so," but, well, it's quite fitting at this time. Uribe is mired in a miserable slump (yes, even more miserable than his Dodger career totals). Since rejoining the team from injury on June 11, he&...
