So, I saw something on the Internet today — and we all know that whatever you see on the Internet must be true. Some folks are clamoring for a prospect to replace Dan Haren (who pitches tonight in Anaheim) in the rotation.
First, it was Zach Lee — the prospect everyone loves to over- and underrate. Now, it appears to be Chris Reed, which I don’t fully understand, other than...
I like Stephen Fife just fine. I do. Really! He’s turned himself into quite a useful depth starter to have around, the kind of guy you feel fine with throwing six or eight times a year, the kind of guy you never want to rely on, but know you’ll need. But… we know what he can do. We know what he is. And so when I heard that he’d be unable to start tonight due...
Welcome to Major League Baseball in Sydney, Australia.
Thanks heaps to my best mate Judy Thomas who is my eyes tonight. Especially for the feature picture.
It is game one of a four game series and tonight game is an exhibition game with the Los Angeles Dodgers against the Australian National team taking place at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Grab some bench and lets go...
The Dodgers play an exhibition game against Team Australia like … right now, and since I’m the only one awake, here’s the game thread!
WHO’S WITH ME?!
Prospect Zach Lee is getting the ball today, and Don Mattingly said he hopes to get eight innings out of him and Red Patterson.
SYDNEY (AP) Right-hander Zach Lee, who is 1-0 in one start with a 5.79 ERA in two games in spring training, will be the starting pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday against Team Australia in the first exhibition baseball game at the revamped Sydney Cricket Ground.

Much has been made about Zach Lee since the Dodgers selected him 28th overall in the 2010 MLB Draft — a pick most thought was a punt because of Lee’s signability concerns.
Lee ended up signing a $5.25 million bonus — the largest for any Dodger draftee ever. Now here here we are, 3 1/2 years later and he’s ready to make...
Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Brandon League is taking his time in recovering from a lat strain, but the right-hander is hoping to be back on the mound by Wednesday. That's according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, who also spoke to Dodgers manager Don Mattingly about the health of League and prospect Zach Lee."We don't think it's anything serious," Mattingly said. "But we want to be...
On this episode of "Dugout Blues," I interview Jason Parks of Baseball Prospectus about the BP Top 101 and his Top 10 Dodgers' prospects.Parks is BP's prospect guru, and was kind enough to give me 30 minutes of his time to indulge me about prospects.First, we talk about Julio Urias' placement in the BP 101 (35). Then we touch on the others who made the BP 101 (Corey Seager, 44; Joc...

It's Dec. 20, and the Dodgers still haven't acquired a big-name starting pitcher. It isn't necessarily a huge need, but it'd be nice to have one more big arm in the rotation.The Dan Haren signing was really good, but I envision him as the team's No. 5 starter rather than its No. 4. But there's a very real scenario in which he's the No. 4 starter, and that isn't the worst thing in...
