One of the coolest things about being a celebrity is not the fame. The money is nice, but it's not cool.

What kid has not wanted to take a few swings inside a MLB ball park? Blake Griffin...

Jordan Paroubeck and Caleb Dirks acquired by Dodgers for international slot money

The Dodgers have acquired prospects Jordan Paroubeck and Caleb Dirks from the Braves in exchange for the Dodgers’ final international slot allotment of $294,000. As Dustin predicted and explained yesterday, it only makes sense for the Dodgers to deal away their slot money after they decided to go all-out in international spending. The 20-year-old Paroubeck is now going to his...

Inspiration for the Mets…from the Dodgers

As they prepare to face two of the NL’s best pitchers back-to-back in the lions den known as Dodger Stadium, the offensively starved Mets may be able to draw inspiration from…the Dodgers. But not these Dodgers. The Dodgers of 50 years ago. Let me of course stipulate that we have neither a Sandy Koufax nor a Don Drysdale, both of whom were in the prime of their careers when the...

Is 2015 the year Kenley Jansen finally gets an all-star nod? – Mandatory Credit: Gary A.

Joc Pederson: one year, one All-Star start?

Joc Pederson is in his first full year in the major league and has made it memorable so far for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The All-Star Game is near and the voting race for starting outfielders are tight. Pederson is in sixth place right now, but he can still find himself being a starting outfielder for the National League. Pederson has made an immediate impact when the Dodgers needed...

Los Angeles Dodgers: international signing edition

About three years ago, the Los Angeles Dodgers signed Yasiel Puig during the international signing period. Seemed to work out well. When the Los Angeles Dodgers failed to sign super-prospect Yoan Moncada in the offseason, it was a disappointment. A 19-year old five tool player doesn’t come around very often, and while it would have been awesome to see him and Corey Seager in the...

Bear or Bull: The Bay of Puig

Yasiel Puig might be the most polarizing player in major league baseball right now. Since making his MLB debut in June 2013, the 24-year-old Cuban defector's off-the-field antics, such as repeatedly showing up late for games and displaying a questionable work ethic in the weight room, have angered fans and teammates alike. If you don't believe me, just check out what some of his...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Yasiel Puig’s actions immature?

Old school baseball fans hate it and younger fans love it. This of course is referring to Los Angeles star outfielder, Yasiel Puig’s actions on the field. Puig is a burst full of energy, he plays with his heart on his sleeve, and goes out on every single play. What’s not to love?

Los Angeles Dodgers trade rumors: Scott Kazmir edition

If the Los Angeles Dodgers don’t go after Johnny Cueto, which I wrote about last week, Scott Kazmir could be another inexpensive option at the trade deadline. Kazmir, like Cueto, will also be a free agent at the end of the year. He likely won’t be as expensive as Cueto, who shouldn’t be too expensive in the first place. However, Kazmir is still a really solid option for the...
