Phillies 6, Dodgers 2: Not the best way to start a road trip

There was ample opportunity to score tonight, but Jerome Williams wouldn’t let the Dodgers do so in their 6-2 against the Phillies.

Seager’s Workin’ On My Buy Moves

Corey Seager should've been called up already. Brucely, we're up against it with the Dodgers. We have the aging vet, Jimmy Rollins, who looks like toast if you were to take doodie and pat it into the shape of toast and, uh, toast it. We have Justin Turner, who is having a career year but isn't really this good and getting more slap hits than another Turner. We have Dumb Mattingly...

5 Prospect Bats to Stash for 2015

It is no secret that the farm systems around baseball have been raided by their major league clubs more often than I can remember in the past. This reliance on young players has happened for two reasons: the second wild card spot and a return to normal from the steroid era, which had us believe players getting better in their late 30s was the norm. With more teams on the cusp of...

Jimmy Rollins tries using the whole field to fight off skills decline

When I wrote about Jimmy Rollins‘ struggles a couple months ago, I mentioned that part of the reason to worry about his production at the plate was that his seemingly “bad luck” BABIP may actually not rebound as much as expected, with one of the main factors being that he had become increasingly predictable in hitting slow choppers to the right side. Sure enough, his BABIP...

This Dodger Team Is Pretty Good

It hasn’t all been easy for the 2015 Dodgers. They got a combined 23 innings from Brandon McCarthy and Hyun-Jin Ryu. Jimmy Rollins has been a mess. Chris Hatcher was awful before he was injured. Carl Crawford has missed most of the year. Yasiel Puig missed a month. Scott Baker, Juan Nicasio, David Huff, and Yimi Garcia all started games. The offense spent a month not scoring. Juan...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Where are they now? — Shortstops

The game’s halfway point is really a misnomer. Some teams will approach 90 games played by the end of the first half. Plus, the fantasy season really isn’t a 162 game affair. In some leagues, the fantasy playoffs take the full month of September. So we’re looking at a little less than two months left in the fantasy regular season. While many of the players we’ve been profiling...
