Atlanta Braves trade rumors: featuring Chris Johnson

About a month ago the Atlanta Braves traded for third baseman Juan Uribe, a two-time World Series champion, known as much for his contribution to team morale as he is for his on-the-field play. Of course, I don’t mean that to sound like a bad thing; Uribe is a good teammate, a great teammate even. So great in fact that the Los Angeles Dodgers‘ organization, a team he spent four...

Los Angeles Dodgers trade Juan Uribe

Think back to 2012. Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” robbed Kanye West’s “All of the Lights” for song of the year at the Grammys. The Artist won best picture at the Oscars. Juan Uribe was in the second year of his contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and hitting .191 with two home runs. Uribe was the exact opposite of “fan favorite”. He looked lost at the plate for...

Braves, Dodgers complete six-player swap

It took a little while to get here, with an unexpected obstacle or two, but we’ve got a six-player trade between the Braves and the Dodgers. The youngest player involved is 27, the average age of the players is about 31, and this year they’ve all combined to be worth -1.2 WAR. Sounds to me […]

Juan Uribe to be traded to Braves in a bizarre deal for a bizarre day

Juan Uribe was traded to the Braves in a deal involving Alberto Callaspo yesterday morning. Then he wasn’t because Callaspo said he loved playing for the Braves. Then it wasn’t ever going to get revived and Uribe was giving the press damage control quotes before the game started. Then Callaspo changed his mind about the whole thing and the terms of the trade ended up finalized...

Juan Uribe to manage Dodgers in last game of season

The Los Angeles Dodgers have wrapped up the NL West. The Colorado Rockies aren’t playing for anything. So, Sunday’s game between the two is meaningless outside of players getting one last chance to add to their season stats. With both teams largely going through the motions, the Dodgers will take the opportunity to switch things […]

Los Angeles Dodgers facing uncertainty at second base

Los Angeles Dodgers General Manager Ned Colletti ( 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. Outside of re-signing key contributors J.P Howell, Juan Uribe, and Brian Wilson, the Dodgers have yet to make a big splash. The team...

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'm disappointed...
