Yasmani Grandal’s Lone MVP Vote and Voting’s Future

In my introduction post last week, I mentioned how I had given Yasmani Grandal an MVP vote. When voting totals were finally released, it turned out I was the only writer to grant Grandal a place on a ballot. I ranked him as the seventh-most valuable player in the NL. It’s an interesting feeling to stand out there all alone. I’m the reason Grandal will be forever credited with...

Are Cubs Stealing Dodgers’ Signs In NLCS? Yasmani Grandal Thinks So

The 2016 National League Championship Series between the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers already was intriguing. And now, it appears there’s some gamesmanship going on. Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal said following Los Angeles’ 1-0 win in Game 2 of the NLCS on Sunday that his team knows the Cubs have been stealing signs. It wasn’t an issue in Game 2, as only one Cubs...

Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal thinks the Cubs stole signs, is “literally paranoid”

Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal knows stealing signs is a part of the game. During Game 1 of the NLCS against the Cubs, Grandal seemed pretty confident that the Cubs were stealing signs. He said just as much when talking to the LA Times about Game 1’s pivotal bottom of the eighth inning. “All the sudden, Russell is not taking good swings at sliders, looking like...

Yasmani Grandal: Dodgers are certain Cubs were stealing signs

Like all other MLB teams, the Los Angeles Dodgers take the necessary precautions to prevent opposing baserunners from stealing signs. Since Clayton Kershaw didn’t allow a runner to get to second base during Sunday night’s dominant win, that wasn’t an issue. However, Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal says there was some thievery going on during Game 1. When Ben Zobrist reached...

A.J. Ellis Picking Up The Slack For Yasmani Grandal

It hasn’t been an easy year for A.J. Ellis. It got so bad that by the second week of May, when his wRC+ was 6 (!), I was having to write articles trying to justify his roster spot, basically saying that because catcher is a very unique position, the mild offensive upgrade you might get from Austin Barnes or some random veteran wouldn’t be worth the learning curve of asking a...

Yasmani Grandal complains about umps' strike zone after no-hitter

By Larry Brown. The Los Angeles Dodgers were no-hit by Houston Astros pitcher Mike Fiers in a 3-0 loss at Minute Maid Park on Friday night, a game after they were two-hit in a loss to the Oakland A’s. Fiers walked three batters — one in each of the first three innings — before retiring the final 21 in a row. The guy carved up the Dodgers’ lineup, striking out 10 while...

Yasmani Grandal and Padres Pitchers

Not to beat a dead horse, or any kind of horse, but the Matt Kemp trade has been lopsided. There’s still an awful long way to go, but for now the Matt Kemp trade is more like the Yasmani Grandal trade, and Grandal and the Dodgers couldn’t be happier. The other day on Twitter I […]
