Dodgers rotation may be stabilizing

The ambiguity at the back end of the Dodgers’ rotation may soon be coming to an end. The Los Angeles Times quoted manager Don Mattingly on the chances of another start for Tuesday night starter Mike Bolsinger:“I would think so,” Mattingly said. “Mike threw the ball well. We still have a little bit of wiggle room, but we’re getting to the point where we have to settle in...

Preview: Brewers vs. Dodgers

As the Milwaukee Brewers hope for better days under their new manager, the Los Angeles Dodgers continue to show why it's hard to keep them down for too long. The visiting Dodgers look to continue their surge Wednesday night against the Brewers. One night after Los Angeles' four-game winning streak ended with a 4-3 loss in the opener of this four-game series, it bounced back to win...

Joe Wieland Is Perfectly Acceptable Rotation Depth

Hyun-jin Ryu‘s sore shoulder is clearly concerning, because it’s not the first time this has happened. The liner that hit Clayton Kershaw in the face yesterday was terrifying, but not much more than that, since it seems he’ll be fine. These two things are completely unrelated, other than that it shines a brighter light on what may yet be a lack of rotation depth, given the...

Just as we’ve done previously with Chris Hatcher, Yasmani Grandal, and Enrique Hernandez, we’ll continue walking through the new Dodgers with righty pitcher Joe Wieland, 25 in January, and a 4th-round pick of the Rangers out of a Reno high school in 2008.

Dodgers Finally, Finally Complete Matt Kemp Trade

Well, that took long enough. For days, I’ve been reminding people that it really hasn’t been that long since Matt Kemp took his physical (48 hours or so), but after today’s revelation about the Padres claiming they’d found issues with his hips, I have to admit that even I started worrying about whether this thing was going to happen. Not only is it now official, but the Dodgers...

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...

Thoughts on the Matt Kemp Trade

The Padres have made an uncharacteristically loud splash this holiday season. As fans complained about inactivity at the Winter Meetings here in San Diego, the team tuned out the noise and dealt Yasmani Grandal, Joe Wieland, and Zach Eflin to the Dodgers for Matt Kemp, Tim Federowicz, and $31 million. With a laughably incompetent offense and a disillusioned fan base, the Padres have...

So Long, Matt Kemp

I think we’ve all accepted the inevitability that Matt Kemp was going to be traded for a few days now, and today, as painful as it is to contemplate, that time is here. Kemp, extraneous backup catcher Tim Federowicz, and $32 million have been traded to San Diego for catcher Yasmani Grandal, pitcher Joe Wieland and minor league pitcher Zach Eflin.

A Particularly Rotten Trade

Back when I was a younger, more annoying version of myself, I seemed to think that every trade had a winner and a loser. That every deal had one team that was smart, forward-thinking, and deftly building a contender and another that was equally dumb, obtuse, and clumsily building the roster equivalent of a steaming pile of trash. Somewhere along the way, I realized that 1) even...
