A.J. Ellis Has to Start Over Yasmani Grandal Tonight, Right?

A.J. Ellis usually doesn’t catch Zack Greinke, and he usually doesn’t start against righty pitchers. That’s what Yasmani Grandal is for, and for most of the year, that worked out well. Grandal was an All-Star, and he made the Matt Kemp trade look very, very good. Thing is, Grandal is hurt. His left shoulder has been a mess since he took a foul tip off it in early August. Last...

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 […]
