Dodgers’ prospect scouting report April 2014: Chris Anderson

While Julio Urias is one of the most prized pitching prospects in the California League, the Dodgers also have the likes of 2013 draftees Tom Windle and Chris Anderson. I was able to see Anderson’s April 13 outing in Modesto against the Rockies’ High-A affiliate, the Nuts. The wind was blow out to right field for most of the afternoon, and he might have been aided by the wind...

Dodgers Fans Screwed By TV Deal

Dodgers fans continue to be screwed by the team and the bogus TV deal that keeps millions of fans from watching their beloved boys in blue.  How many hundreds of millions do sports execs have to make before they are full?

Must See Replay That Could Only Happen To Yasiel Puig

For nearly a year Yasiel Puig has received more media attention on a national scale than just about anybody in baseball.

Report: Yasiel Puig receiving death threats from smugglers

The latest report involving the Dodgers star right-fielder may be the most disturbing yet, and it sounds like something out of an Oliver Stone screenplay.

Dodgers @ Giants April 16, 2014: The Problem With Juan Uribe’s Offense

Juan Uribe has been getting a lot of praise for his offense so far this year. And rightfully so: Uribe currently leads the Dodgers’ batters in wRC+. However, he’s taken an unusual path to get there. So far this season, Uribe has not drawn a single walk. Including last year’s postseason (when he didn’t draw any walks either), Uribe has gone 101 plate appearances since his...

Kenley Jansen Is Suddenly The Worst Closer In Baseball, Or Something

Oddly — or, I don’t know, maybe it’s not — the tenor of discussion following last night’s extra-inning loss is less about Brandon League being terrible than it is about Kenley Jansen being unable to hold onto a 2-1 lead in the ninth inning. For clarity, here’s what Jansen did. He struck out Hector Sanchez on four pitches. Then, he got Angel Pagan to hit a grounder...

It’s time to scoop up ‘Sweet’ Dee Gordon

Ever since being handed the Dodgers second base job until Alex Guerrero improved on his defense in the minors, Dee Gordon has been fighting for his life as a Dodgers starter.

Originally assumed to be just...
