Chone Figgins, Dodgers Sign Minor League Contract

The grass was not greener in Seattle. Not by a long shot; just ask Chone Figgins. After a stellar career with Angels, Chone Figgins pulled a Adrian Beltre and jumped ship from So-Cal to Seattle. Well now that that’s all over, the Los Angeles Dodgers are taking an absolutely zero risk by signing Chone to a minor league contact, in hopes that he’ll compete for a bench position...

Dodgers, Kershaw Ink 7 Years $215 Million

The Kershaw speculation appears to be over as the Dodgers avoided salary arbitration and signed Clayton Kershaw to a monster 7 Year, $215,000,000. I needed to put in the zeros so you can comprehend that monster contract.

Dodgers Re-Sign Juan Uribe

Clubhouse favorite and recent fan favorite Juan Uribe has agreed to a 2-Year $15 million dollar contract with the Dodgers.  The pudgy, lovable Uribe was solid defensively in 2013 at the hot corner after two years of injury riddled seasons. This is a great signing for the Dodgers as they didn’t have to dip into their nearly depleted farm system in a trade, kept a low risk, short...

Dodgers, Wilson May Be Close(r), Drop Belly Fat

The eccentric wild haired hurler Brian Wilson may be back in Dodger Blue. Talks broke down between Wilson and the Tigers, so he turned back to his former club where he sported a sub 1.00 ERA and shows signs of his former dominant closer self throughout his tenure. He’s not creepy. The Dodgers don’t need any more “closers” in the bullpen, as their current one is pretty awesome...

Can We Get Over Trading Matt Kemp?

Rodney Dangerfield and Matt Kemp have a lot in common these days; they both don’t get no respect. After the 2011 season it felt as if Matt Kemp could do no wrong. He was humble in his second place MVP voting against cheater Ryan Braun, 1 home run shy of being a 40-40 man and a major presence on and off the field. In 2012, hit still showed his pop, despite injury, and while taking...

The Dodgers Last Stand

The Los Angeles Dodgers have already clinched the National League West and are officially back on top. I don’t know about you, but I am totally digging the fact that the Giants are keeping the Rockies company at the bottom of the NL West. As a matter of fact, the rest of the entire NL West division has been eliminated from the 2013 playoffs. Yeah, I’m good with that. The Dodgers...

Post Michael Young Trade Reaction

So the dust has settled on the Michael Young trade. With a day or so to reflect on the trade, I still find it utterly pointless. Why the Dodgers brought in another over-priced declining infielder, for what exactly? Not one clue. I got nothing over here. It wasn’t to be the starting third baseman, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly says Juan Uribe is still the team’s starting third...

Brian Wilson Signs With Dodgers

Update: The tentative plan for Wilson is to begin at the Dodgers’ complex in Arizona, then go to Rancho Cucamonga, and then report to the Dodgers in two weeks, tweets Brown.  In theory, the signing should take the Dodgers out of the bullpen trade market. Thus, allowing them to focus on the infield and starting rotation again. Well, that didn’t last very long now did it? It’s...
