Joe Kelly – Big Win

Red Sox hurler Joe Kelly has a reputation as a bit of a flake. Before Game 6 of the 2013 NLCS, he engaged in a “staredown” of Dodger outfielder Scott Van Slyke, with neither man moving for 15 minutes as the ground crew prepared the field. He also wears glasses to better see his catcher’s signs, but removes them when he hits. But early in this Sox season, he was all business...

Los Angeles Dodgers: opening day observations

For the first time in team history, the Los Angeles Dodgers have won five straight season-openers. Monday, they defeated the San Diego Padres on an eighth-inning Jimmy Rollins home run. Here are some observations I made from my seats in Top Deck, sitting behind a group of people that had a selfie-stick and a fish-eye lens on their iPhone. Before the selfie-stick people ruined my...

2015 Dodgers prospects: Projected 2018 lineup

Finally, the conclusion of the 11-part 2015 prospect series. This would have been published sooner if a certain Cuban infielder had already made a decision, but I can only sit on this piece for so long. Catcher Last year, the Dodgers were looking at a serious lack of depth at catcher for the foreseeable future. After a few months of the new decision-makers in town, the position...

So Andre Ethier Still Exists

If there’s a single great surprise of the Dodger offseason, it’s easily the fact that as the team heads to Arizona to break camp, Andre Ethier is still wearing blue. Even after Matt Kemp was traded to San Diego, Ethier’s departure seemed to be a given. After all, Carl Crawford and Scott Van Slyke make for a tidy pair in left, Yasiel Puig owns right, and if Joc Pederson can’t...

2015 TOC top ten: benches

It was actually pretty difficult to rank the ten best benches in baseball. When you’re dealing with so many moving parts and uncertain job situations, there are plenty situations that are always changing and not settled. So yes, these are very objective and subject to change at a moment’s notice – but aren’t all rankings? 1. Dodgers. If the Dodgers somehow dump Andre Ethier’s...

Arruebarrena Remains A Dodger, As You Should Have Expected

When the Dodgers DFA’d Erisbel Arruebarrena last week, it actually made plenty of sense, even though plenty of people misunderstood it. All a DFA is for a player in his situation is the loss of a 40-man spot, not an exile from an organization. Unless a team claimed him (very unlikely) or wanted to trade for him (somewhat unlikely),  all that was going to happen here would be that...

The Dodgers have to move outfielders soon, right?

The biggest issue facing Andrew Friedman in Los Angeles this offseason is simple – move at least one outfielder. Coming into the winter, the team had Carl Crawford, Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp, and Yasiel Puig under contract for the 2015 season and beyond. Top prospect Joc Pederson was waiting in the wings. Scott Van Slyke established himself as a legitimate power threat off the bench...

You Just Watched The Best-Hitting Outfield In Los Angeles Dodgers History

Do you remember, really, how insane this season was in the Dodger outfield? Matt Kemp was the center fielder, until he wasn’t. Then Andre Ethier was, but then Scott Van Slyke was, but then Yasiel Puig was. Kemp spent weeks in left while Carl Crawford was hurt. Joc Pederson was knocking on the door. Only three starts all year came from outside that group, and one of them came on...

Dodgers 6, Rockies 5: Scott Van Slyke’s Speed Seals Walkoff

The result of today’s game was meaningless, so we’ll get to how the Dodgers won 6-5 behind Scott Van Slyke‘s unlikely speed in a minute. However, the far more important part was the health of two Dodger starting infielders. In the bottom of the first, Dee Gordon hit a ground ball. He grimaced, running gingerly to first base. After he was out, he was removed from the game...

Creeper of the Week: Juan Scott Has Big Balls

Now why not just choose one? Good point. I don't want to choose. With the Dodgers September call-ups, the outfield has got mucky, but...
