Why the Los Angeles Dodgers made the stunning A.J. Ellis trade

I can see it now: Carlos Ruiz getting a big hit off a left-hander in the postseason, prompting everyone to say, “Ah, that is why the Dodgers made the trade.”The trade -- longtime catcher A.J. Ellis, right-hander Tommy Bergjans and a player to be named to the Phillies on Thursday for Ruiz and cash -- was hardly without logic. Still, it was a cold move by a hot team at an unexpected...

Giants @ Dodgers August 25, 2016: The show must go on

Despite the news of the shocking trade that sent long-tenured Dodger A.J. Ellis to Philadelphia earlier today, the show must go on. Ellis was a leader in the clubhouse, and he was one of the nicest baseball players I have ever met. But the reality is that the Dodgers are in the middle of a pennant race. Whether it’s an incremental upgrade or not, Carlos Ruiz has hit left-handed...

Heyman: Dodgers on amazing Kershaw-less run

Toughness and resilience isn’t something often associated with a $250-million team, even if it’s a team that pared down from $300 million, or so, a year ago.

All Right, Adrian Gonzalez Is Back

The Reds are bad, and the Dodgers just clobbered them. As a part of that clobbering, Adrian Gonzalez socked three dingers. Here, you can watch them all! Each is impressive in its own way, I suppose. They’re most impressive as a group. There was a time when Gonzalez’s power was absent. He hit three home runs in April. He hit three home runs, combined, in May and June. The fairly...

Dodgers in good shape despite Kershaw's absence

It's been nearly two months since Clayton Kershaw last took the mound for Los Angeles, and what's happened in his absence has been pretty encouraging for the Dodgers. Kershaw's last appearance came in a loss to Pittsburgh on June 26, and Los Angeles trailed San Francisco by eight games in the NL West following that game. Since then, the Dodgers are 27-19 without their ace - and...
