Exploring the Hamels-to-Dodgers trade possibility

National reports surfaced Monday night that the Phillies "have made Cole Hamels available" and the Dodgers are interested. It makes sense since L.A. is one of few teams -- maybe the only team -- equipped with the finances and elite prospects to pull off a blockbuster for the Phils' lefty ace. But, as colleague Jim Salisbury has said all along, the Phillies will need...

Clayton Kershaw Drills Jimmy Kimmel In The Face With A Baseball (Video)

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Jimmy Kimmel had Clayton Kershaw on the set of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Monday night and invited the Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher to try to knock an apple off his head with a baseball. If Kimmel could pick anyone for this task, it’s Kershaw, who has walked only 15 batters and hit just one in over 112 innings pitched this season while...

Matt Kemp’s Offense Is Not The Problem

There is no player more polarizing on the Dodgers than Matt Kemp. Recently, as Kemp trade rumors have (predictably) started to get louder, there have been a large variety of reactions. There’s one thing that comes up frequently in our comment section, on twitter, and around the internet which I want to address, though. You can say all you want about Kemp’s defense, but Matt Kemp’s offense...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Is Matt Kemp on the Move?

Fantasy sports is a pretty cutthroat business. There is little room for nostalgia. Yesterday’s stars can often become today’s albatross and nowhere is that more true than with the Los Angeles Dodgers. They have an outfield littered with big names, but only one of them is really producing. If you remove Yasiel Puig from the discussion, you see three big names that are no longer...

The Dodgers don’t play today. The trade deadline is on Thursday. You’re damned right we’re going to talk about Matt Kemp. More than once, actually, because Brim will be around later today with a math-based look at whether Kemp is still a productive offensive player. (Spoiler alert: he is.) Me, well, I just want to talk about the idea of trading Kemp at all. I suppose I’m...
