NED COLLETTI RUMORS & GOSSIP
A month ago, when the Dodgers fell to the Cardinals in the NLDS, here’s how the front office looked:
GM: Ned Colletti
AGM / Scouting Director: Logan White
AGM / VP Player Dev.: De Jon Watson
Pres. Baseball Ops: Andrew Friedman
GM: Farhan Zaidi (MLB moves)
SVP, Baseball Ops: Josh Byrnes (scouting and player development)
Dir. of Player Dev.: Gabe Kapler
Dir. of Amateur...
I’ve been thinking a lot about Andrew Friedman’s arrival with the Dodgers, and one of the things that really keeps coming up for me is simply that he’s an outsider to the organization. Ned Colletti had been in charge for so, so long, to the point that not a single current member of the Dodgers played for the team before he arrived. (Although several had been drafted and were...
The Dodgers finally demoted Ned Colletti as GM on Tuesday and announced that former Tampa Bay Rays executive Andrew Friedman was taking over as president of baseball operations. Even though the announcement of Colletti’s demotion was not made until this week, it seems like the Dodgers knew this was a direction they were heading. According...Read More
Zach Lee was an “untouchable” prospect at this year’s deadline.
That concept from a recent article in the Los Angeles Times seemed ridiculous enough to write about on its own, but the deeper implications of it were far more significant and interesting.
Essentially, yes, Zach Lee was labeled untouchable. But no, it wasn’t for anything he necessarily earned. Rather, Ned Colletti...
The Los Angeles Dodgers announced Tuesday that former Tampa Bay Rays executive vice president of baseball operations, Andrew Friedman, has been hired as the clubs new president of baseball operations.

Even though four baseball teams are still fighting for a World Series, the offseason has begun for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
I was beginning to work on a piece about what the Dodgers need to do in the offseason to get over the hump and take home their first World Series title since 1988. Number one on my list was “replace Ned Colletti”.
Andrew Friedman is the Dodgers’ new President...
Can you breathe yet? Can any of us? I’ve had a pretty good idea that Ned Colletti would be leaving the GM job for a few days, but I didn’t know until the announcement came out that Andrew Friedman would the one coming in. We’d heard the rumors, and dismissed them. Now, it’s real.
But Colletti isn’t gone, fully. According to Ramona Shelburne, he’s being shifted (with a...
With the trade deadline looming, we take a look at a potential conversation between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox.
In this mock scenario, I sharpen up my mustache and assume the role of Ned Colletti. The role of Boston GM Ben Cherington is played by Boston Red Sox correspondent Alex Peters.

For about a month, I’ve been writing about potential trades to improve the Los Angeles Dodgers.
With only five days left until the trade deadline, Ned Colletti and the Dodgers still haven’t made any trades.
In Colletti’s time with the Dodgers, he has pulled off some stunners before the deadline. The biggest one was a last minute deal that brought Manny Ramirez from Boston...
