GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Alex Guerrero hit a grand slam and Adrian Gonzalez added a solo home run as the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied for 10-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night.
Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed two runs and four hits in four innings.
Gonzalez singled off Jeff Francis to lead off the four-run fifth. Juan Uribe followed with a fly to shallow right....
Understanding when to draft certain positions is the key to a great fantasy baseball draft. This mock draft is based on ESPN Average Draft Position, creates a 10 team league and requires each team draft the following roster:(1) Catcher (1) First Base (1) Second Base (1) Third Base (1) Shortstop (3) Outfielders (3) Pitchers (1) CloserWhen a team was up to selected and it would...
Call them the Atlanta Young Millionaires Club. All seem like great kids. All deserve their new deals. But one of the risks is that the money will spoil, distract or otherwise affect them.
"I'm not going to let it happen," said Braves center fielder B.J. Upton, who knows something about the pressure that money creates after signing a five-year, $75.25 million free-agent...
First, the good news: SNLA does in fact launch tomorrow at 7 p.m. Pacific Time. We’ll get to the assorted negatives in a minute, but it’s important not to gloss over that simple yet massive fact. After years of being a small portion of Prime Ticket, the Dodgers have their own 24/7 channel, and if you remember the endless legal battles of Frank McCourt — aimed almost entirely...
Consistency is rare in today’s game, which is why Matt Holliday is such a breath of fresh air. Unlike players who you’re hoping ca get through a full season unscathed — ala Carlos Gonzalez — with Holliday you know you’re getting durability and stability.
To measure that durability, look no further than his games played throughout his career. Since his breakout 2006 season...
Adrian Gonzalez is a disappointing player, but that’s not really a fair criticism of him. Leaving Petco Park in San Diego for Fenway before the 2011 season, everyone expected his 30-40 HR power to turn into 40 or more every season.
That’s not how things played out. Instead, Gonzalez hit just 45 HR in 2011 and 2012 combined, driving his value down. His association with Boston’s...
Tony Gonzalez made headlines earlier this month when described former teammate Matt Ryan as excellent but not elite. Gonzalez who just accepted an analyst job with CBS hadn’t spoken about the quote until now. Gonzalez spoke to the Atlanta Journal Constitution about the ESPN the Magazine story and wasn’t too thrilled about how the quote was taken out of context.
Is there any doubt who the Dodgers’ right fielder will be in 2017? (By: Dustin Nosler)
It’s hard to project anything in baseball, especially something like a 2017 lineup. But that’s what I’m going to do here.
I usually attach this at the end of my prospect write-ups, but I wanted to go a little more in depth here. It takes into account who is currently in the farm system...
Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly never worries about Adrian Gonzalez. He doesn't have to. The first baseman is always available.
''An everyday player,'' Mattingly said.
Gonzalez has been a sturdy player throughout his career. Last season he played in 157 games, 15 more than anybody else on the Dodgers during a season in which injuries to center fielder...

After recently profiling Andrelton Simmons for fantasy relevance in 2014, I noted that he had a 12% increase in his fly ball rate from 27% to 39% as well as an outlandish 17.8% popup rate, the latter of which led the majors last year. It seemed extraordinary that a guy with a career fly ball rate of 25% and a career popup rate of 8...
There isn’t much depth behind Adrian Gonzalez at 1B. (By: Dustin Nosler)

Two years ago, things looked to be headed in the right direction for San Diego. True, they were coming off a 91-loss 2011 season as they transitioned out of the Adrian Gonzalez / Heath Bell era, but the signs were at least pointing the right way. Keith Law ranked them as the #1 farm system in […]
One of the best ways to have a great fantasy baseball season is to put trust in players that others don't. However, those players need to be carefully selected and heavily researched. My name is Zack Burgess (@FantasyZack) and these are my sleeper candidates for the 2014 Fantasy Baseball season and I hope you enjoy! I would love to hear what you think and make sure to post...
While Major League Baseball has plenty of interdivisional rivalries, such as Yankees-Red Sox, Giants-Dodgers and Angels-Rangers, scattered throughout the country, but rivalries between teams in separate divisions are much more uncommon.
But the St. Louis Cardinals and Los Angeles Dodgers could be on the precipice of one of the most intriguing and intense rivalries between non-divisional...
Friendly O's-Sox Rivalry Renews On March 31stThe Red Sox will open their World Series title defense on the Inner Harbor in Baltimore on Monday afternoon, March 31st at 3 PM on ESPN2. MLB announced plans for their Opening Day weekend extravaganza and the World Series Champion Red Sox are right in the thick of it. Of course, thanks to Bud Selig's obsession with foreign venues...
The Dodgers hosted 300 kids at Dodger Stadium the other day for what appeared to be the most fun thing a kid could ever hope to do during the Christmas season.
Every year for the past 30 years the organization has provided a day to remember by offering presents, games, food, and time with current players, as well as Dodger alums during a day in Chavez Ravine.
Adrian Gonzalez entered 2013 providing hope for the first base position that the Dodgers haven’t had since James Loney‘s strong push to end 2007. After the late-season trade that sent Adrian from the Boston Red Sox to Los Angeles — and a solid but unspectacular end to the season, offensively — there was hope that another off-season away from his shoulder surgery...
The Dodgers are following the advice of Adrian Gonzalez and focusing on home field advantage. How are they doing that? Shore up the 4th and eventually 5th spot in the rotation. Dodgers add RHP Dan Haren on a 1-year contract worth $10 million. The southern California native, can also earn up to additional $3 million in performance bonuses.
Although last season wasn’t anything to...
For some time now I've been after an Adrian Gonzalez auto that not only depicts him as a Dodger but that he clearly signed after being traded from Boston to Los Angeles. That means the signature had to be on-card. Topps Tribute was one of the few releases that offered anything meeting that simple criteria.After losing numerous auctions I finally landed A-Gon's John Hancock...
Los Angeles Dodgers stars Adrian Gonzalez and Yasiel Puig signing autographs on posters making fun of them prior to Friday night's NLCS Game 6 in St. Louis.
The Adrian Gonzalez sign showed him with Mickey Mouse ears on top of Dumbo, with the caption "Dumbo and Dumber". The other sign showed Puig next to the Cardinals "Rally Squirrel" that became famous...
After St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright made unflattering comments about the Dodgers saying that Adrian Gonzalez was doing “Mickey Mouse stuff” and took exception with the celebration of Yasiel Puig on a triple two batters later. On Friday some fans in St. Louis made some clever signs poking fun at the pair of Dodgers. Yasiel Puig and Adrian Gonzalez sign Mickey Mouse...
Backs against the wall?
No big deal ... or so it seems from the way the Los Angeles Dodgers are acting heading into Game 6 of the NLCS at St. Louis trailing 3-2.
Check out this pregame picture of Yasiel Puig and Adrian Gonzalez.

Adrian Gonzalez is having a lot of fun with this whole Mickey Mouse thing. To refresh your memory, St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright said after Game 3 of the NLCS that Gonzalez was doing some “Mickey Mouse stuff” on the bases after hitting an RBI double to put the Los Angeles Dodgers up 1-0.
