BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — A lawyer says a Connecticut minor league baseball player hit by former major leaguer Jose Offerman in a 2007 baseball bat attack has won nearly $1 million in a lawsuit. A jury Tuesday awarded $940,000 to Bridgeport Bluefish catcher Johnathan Nathans, who wanted $4.8 million. Nathans’ lawyer Josh Koskoff says he’s still affected by a head injury he suffered...
I said it last year at this time and I’ll gladly say it again…those sounds you hear echoing through Chavez Ravine are the dulcet tones of one Vin Scully announcing he’ll be returning next season for his 66th season in the Los Angeles Dodgers broadcast booth. The team made the announcement Tuesday night during their game against the Atlanta Braves and did it in three different...

Clayton Kershaw was a guest on Monday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live. During a segment, Kimmel wanted Kershaw to throw a baseball at him to knock an apple off of his head. Kershaw eventually succeeded, but not before hilariously smashing Kimmel in the face.
There is no player more polarizing on the Dodgers than Matt Kemp. Recently, as Kemp trade rumors have (predictably) started to get louder, there have been a large variety of reactions. There’s one thing that comes up frequently in our comment section, on twitter, and around the internet which I want to address, though. You can say all you want about Kemp’s defense, but Matt Kemp’s offense...
The reigning NL Cy Young winner showed that his accuracy doesn’t apply to everything. While on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night, Clayton Kershaw attempted to knock an apple off Kimmel’s head. After three attempts, the Dodgers southpaw, figured out a way we all can appreciate of getting down the apple.

The Los Angeles Dodgers enter a series against the Atlanta Braves today with a record of 59-47, two games ahead of the San Francisco Giants in the National League West. Outfielder Carl Crawford had an RBI triple on Sunday to help the Dodgers defeat the Giants by the score of 4-3. It appears the Dodgers are making Crawford available to teams as the trade deadline approaches. But...
The Philadelphia Phillies may be ready to become “sellers” at this year’s trade deadline. The Phillies are currently out of contention, (46-59) in the NL East, and may trade some of their most valuable major league players in exchange for young talented prospects. One player reportedly available in Philadelphia is pitcher Cole Hamels. FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi reports that...
The Los Angeles Dodgers made their first splash in the 2014 trade season.
Splash is a strong word. It was kind of like they threw a pebble into the Pacific Ocean. But hey, it’s something to write about.
Monday afternoon, the Dodgers acquired recently DFA’d Chicago Cubs second baseman Darwin Barney. The Dodgers also received cash from the Cubs, and will send the Cubs a player...
With the trade deadline looming, we take a look at a potential conversation between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox.
In this mock scenario, I sharpen up my mustache and assume the role of Ned Colletti. The role of Boston GM Ben Cherington is played by Boston Red Sox correspondent Alex Peters.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have made a move in an attempt to shore up their infield depth by acquiring second baseman Darwin Barney from the Chicago Cubs. Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune first reported a deal was close to getting done. Darwin barney to dodgers should be finalized soon — Mark Gonzales (@MDGonzales) July 28, 2014 According to Gordon Wittenmeyer of the Chicago Sun...
For about a month, I’ve been writing about potential trades to improve the Los Angeles Dodgers.
With only five days left until the trade deadline, Ned Colletti and the Dodgers still haven’t made any trades.
In Colletti’s time with the Dodgers, he has pulled off some stunners before the deadline. The biggest one was a last minute deal that brought Manny Ramirez from Boston...
Carl Crawford returned from the disabled list on July 10th, just over two weeks ago. Crawford’s return brought the outfield back up to five players, with no real candidate to play center. I looked at the math of the offense prior to his return, and we’ve had all sorts of fun talking about the outfield shuffle since it re-commenced. So far, it has lived up to advanced billing...
Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig can make seemingly impossible feats appear to be routine. He makes plays with both his bat and his glove, and certainly entertains fans, teammates and analysts on and off the field. And during Friday night’s Dodgers-Giants game, he was the catalyst behind an 8-1 L.A. win with his awesome plate heroics. He belted out three triples, which tied...

The Los Angeles Dodgers are in the midst of a pennant chase and that is obviously the franchise’s top priority. But ranking just below the team’s quest for a World Series title is somehow solving its logjam in the outfield. To that end, the Dodgers are trying feverishly to trade Matt Kemp and his massive contract. According to Jon Heyman, five teams have shown interest in Kemp...
