Dodgers utility man Justin Turner put on a heck of show last night, seemingly doing everything he could to beat his old teammates.
Turner turned two key double plays against the Mets, and was no slouch at the plate singling, doubling, drawing a walk and scoring a run. Turner also stole a base and nearly scored another run if not for a botched suicide squeeze by Dan Haren who failed...
It looked like it was going to be one of those nights for Clayton Kershaw. Then, it looked like it was going to be one of those nights for the Dodgers. Then, it was one of THOSE nights. The Dodgers, on the strength of a Justin Turner 2-run home run in the bottom of the eighth and a gem by Kershaw, defeated the Padres 2-1 on Thursday night.
Kershaw was lights-out, as he normally is...
Last season the Dodgers had some of the most talented utility players in the major leagues, including seasoned veterans Skip Schumaker, Jerry Hairston Jr. and Nick Punto. Those three were reliable options whose versatility helped carry the Dodgers through various injuries throughout the season, while also serving as valuable substitutes late in games.

I feel like we’ve been talking about Justin Turner for so long — months, if we’re including the old MSTI — that the fact that news just came out that they have in fact signed him seems more anti-climactic than anything. This seemed pretty obvious a few days ago, when the Dodgers let loose that a signing of an infielder was imminent, that there was just about no one...
Justin Turner has been a fan favorite in Queens since his crazy 20 RBI in May of 2011, and it was never doubted he would make the opening day roster two years in a row. he has definitely shown that he isn’t exactly consistent when he plays every day, but he will get it done on the bench. Every Mets fan can talk continuously about Turner and the confidence he brings every time...
Justin Turner, Josh Satin and Mr. Met took the field in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn yesterday afternoon along with 50 campers from the YMCA Jr. Mets Camp presented by Citi, and it was difficult to tell who was having more fun; the kids, or the Mets.
The clinic took place at Green Central Knoll Park, marking the third event in this year’s series of programs with the Jr. Mets...
This past week, rumors bounced around about the idea of trading utility-man Justin Turner. It was reported that the Mets would not necessarily shop around Turner, but that they would listen to any offers that came along. On the one hand, trading Turner would make sense for a multitude of reasons, however Turner does offer some value in certain situations.
The Mets may have a legitimate...

Chris McShane of Amazin Avenue get’s the nod in this weeks edition of Fair or Foul after arguing that the Mets should designate Justin Turner for assignment in all due haste. He writes,
Last night, Terry Collins inexplicably started Justin Turner over Ike Davis at first base. He shouldn’t have had the option.
In limited playing time this year, Turner has been even worse than...
