Dodgers traded the Twins pocket change to complete Kevin Correia deal

The Dodgers have sent cash to the Twins to complete the Aug. 9 deal for pitcher Kevin Correia, according to Eric Stephen of True Blue LA. How much? Not sure, but I’m hoping that rumor of $1 to $200 is true, because … hahaha. Correia put up a 8.03 ERA and 6.33 FIP during his stint with the team, which means he miraculously managed to be worth almost one negative win in a mere...

Twins Rumors: Minnesota to address rotation

2014 was yet another miserable season -- pitching wise --  for the Minnesota Twins. Heading into 2014, the Twin's plan was to have a rotation anchored by veterans. Phil Hughes produced a quality season, but other starters like Kevin Correia, Ricky Nolasco, and Kyle Gibson all struggled. The Twin Cities could be a potential landing spot for one of the free agent market's top pitchers...

Dodgers 17, Giants 0: That Was Considerably More Fun Than Last Night

Do you remember how sad you were at this time last night? Do you? You should. Think about it. Hyun-jin Ryu lasted one terrible inning, then left, injured. You had to suffer through Chris Perez, Carlos Frias and Kevin Correia. The offense couldn’t touch Madison Bumgarner. It was, all around, awful. The season had crumbled, some said. The Dodgers had shown no heart, cried others...

WATCH: The longest homers of the week

Lucas Duda vs Kevin Correia, 457 feet (August 24th) Lucas Duda’s power stroke this season is one of the best things to happen in years for the Mets. He hit this one a long way up the Dodger Stadium bleachers. 2. Mike Napoli vs Sergio...

The Chad Billingsley Effect Still Lingers Over The Dodgers

No team should have to have Roberto Hernandez, Kevin Correia, and decline-phase Dan Haren in the rotation at the same time. That the Dodgers have done it for a few weeks and managed not only to survive but to thrive is a massive achievement unto itself, but this was never the plan, and that’s why so many wanted to see the Dodgers get David Price or John Lackey or someone before...

The Dodgers Didn’t Claim Bartolo Colon

In case you were wondering how badly the Dodgers were concerned about a starting rotation that has recently had Dan Haren, Kevin Correia and Roberto Hernandez in it, apparently the answer is “not that bad.” Bartolo Colon cleared waivers, meaning that no team claimed him and he’s now eligible to be traded to anyone. It’s a bit surprising that Colon made it through, because...

Mets 11, Dodgers 3: Future Dodger Bartolo Colon Beats Future Ex-Dodger Kevin Correia

Miguel Rojas ended up playing left field in this game, in case you were wondering if you missed anything. Today is Kevin Correia‘s 34th birthday, so I feel bad bagging on him, I guess, but then, I think we knew when the Dodgers acquired him that he was joining the rotation more out of injury-fueled desperation than out of any actual qualifications on his part. He may have unfairly...

Dodgers 8, Padres 6: Ugly win is ugly, and Carl Crawford lives

The night started off poorly for the Dodgers, but the offense showed up to lead them to an 8-6 win over the Padres on Tuesday night. Kevin Correia served up a 3-run home run to Jedd Gyorko (hitting .199 at the time) to give San Diego an early 3-0 lead. It was vintage Correia, unfortunately. He wasn’t nearly as good as he was in his Dodgers’ debut, but he did enough to get the...

Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Aug 19

After a very limited Monday, there are plenty of opportunities to spot start on Tuesday. Let’s look at the rankings: Scott Kazmir takes the top spot for two reasons: He’ll face the Mets, who are 29th in wOBA over the last two weeks (.268) and he’ll face Dillon Gee, who Steamer doesn’t like. That 50/20 W%/L% split seems a bit drastic to me, but I think Kazmir probably has...

Three Cuts: Braves drop series opener to Dodgers

ATLANTA -- Coming off their most successful series since the All-Star break, the Atlanta Braves' wheels once again fell off. The Los Angeles Dodgers pulled away with two big innings in Monday night's 6-1 win, leaving the Braves with their 10th loss in the past 12 games and searching for answers. Here are three observations from the game: 1. Since All-Star Weekend concluded last month...

Los Angeles has won four of six to increase its NL West lead to five games over idle San Francisco. The Braves have dropped 10 of 12 and fallen four games behind NL East-leading Washington.

The Los Angeles Dodgers made another move in their rotation, acquiring Kevin Correia from the Minnesota Twins for either a player to be named later or cash.
