Alex Guerrero Is Heating Up At The Right Time

Two weeks ago, I wrote a post titled “Alex Guerrero Is Right Where He Should Be,” intended to refute those who insisted that Guerrero should have been added to the team rather than Darwin Barney in the wake of Hanley Ramirez‘ injury, simply because he had a great Triple-A stat line. When Juan Uribe hurt himself shortly after, the calls only intensified. My case against it,...

Dodgers @ Brewers August 10, 2014: Hanley Out, Barney In

The last few days have been so much fun around Dodger-land — Roberto Hernandez! Kevin Correia, who might start tomorrow! – that it’s easy to forget that if they don’t win today’s series finale in Milwaukee, they’ll limp out of Wisconsin having been swept by a potential playoff opponent. (Colt Hynes, by the way, was DFA’d to make room for Correia on the 40-man roster...

Darwin Barney Can Help the Dodgers

I once had an argument with Darwin Barney about whether or not he had any trade value. This is me, gloating that I was right — the Dodgers traded for the Cubs infielder on Monday. Then again, maybe Barney had a point. We’ll have to see what the player to be named later looks like. […]
