The (Not So) Great Angels Second Base Competition

Spring training doesn’t start for several weeks but the Angels are already shaping up to have one of the most competitive position battles in all of baseball. With Howie Kendrick being traded to the Dodgers, the second base job in Anaheim is now wide open. This position battle won’t be a mano-a-mano duel though, but rather a battle royale. Yep, the Angels seem to be going with...

Player Profile #164: Howie Kendrick | 2B | LAD

Twice this week, we’ve published a profile about a Dodgers middle infielder who wasn’t a Dodgers middle infielder a year ago. Last time it was Jimmy Rollins. This time it’s Howie Kendrick. Kendrick’s acquisition by the Dodgers was mildly surprising as many felt the team was ready to give second-year professional Alexander Guerrero an extended look at second base this season...

During the Winter Meetings, the Los Angeles Dodgers spent two days letting the baseball world know that there was a new regime in town. The Dodgers were the headliner in San Diego, trading two fan-favorites and eating a lot of money while doing so. Under Farhan Zaidi, the Dodgers are in extremely capable hands heading into the 2015 season, which begins for the Dodgers on April 6...

Kendrick intrigued by Dodgers' offseason overhaul

LOS ANGELES (AP) As a baseball fan, Howie Kendrick is impressed and intrigued by the Los Angeles Dodgers' offseason overhaul. As the Dodgers' new second baseman, Kendrick is grateful he only has to drive a few more miles up the freeway to be a part of it all. The club welcomed Kendrick to Dodger Stadium on Friday, putting a blue cap on the longtime Angels infielder. Kendrick is...

Let’s Get To Know Chris Hatcher

The headlines of last week’s Marlins-Dodgers-Angels swap aren’t focused on the bit players the Dodgers got back from the Marlins. The main focus on the trade is on Dee Gordon, Howie Kendrick, and Andrew Heaney, and understandably so. But, as we’ve seen in previous posts, the other players received from Miami are pretty interesting, too. So, let’s get to know Chris Hatcher...

Let’s Get To Know Enrique Hernandez

Everything has happened so quickly over the last few days that I feel like not everything has gotten the attention it deserves. We’ve talked a ton about Matt Kemp, obviously, and about the departure of Dee Gordon. But what about the other players who came from Miami? What about Joe Wieland? Even Howie Kendrick, much more of a known quantity, needed some introduction. I can’t...

The Wind Up: Winter Meetings Takeaways

If you’ve missed a thing or two over the last four days during MLB’s Winter Meetings, I’ll cut you some slack. A couple of noteworthy moves—Jon Lester and Howie Kendrick, to name two—took place while I was sleeping. In fact, the Matt Kemp trade really began materializing then, too. Of course, I was at work for just about everything else. It was one of the craziest weeks...

A deeper look at Howie Kendrick, Dee Gordon’s replacement

When the Dodgers acquired Howie Kendrick for Andrew Heaney, my first thought was, “that seems like too much.” It still might be, but Kendrick is an undeniable upgrade at the second base position. The Dodgers came extremely close to landing Kendrick at the trade deadline in 2013. Zach Lee and Chris Withrow would have gone to the Angels for Kendrick. That was before Alex Guerrero...
