Think the Los Angeles Dodgers rotation is good now with Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke? How good would it be if former Cy Young award winner, David Price, would be added to the mix? That is the exact rumor that Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times wrote about. #456836740 / gettyimages.comWith Max Scherzer a free agent, trading Price who is entering his final year of...
What happened in 2014: Struggled horrendously at the plate and spent time on the disabled list twice, once for what was easily the funniest injury of the season. (Sorry, A.J.)
If A.J. Ellis did anything this season, it was to allow me endless opportunities to point out how flawed batting average is. “Yeah, he’s...
Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Hanley Ramirez will be watching the World Series just like me and you. But in his free time, Ramirez bought a 2014 Lamborghini.
Reports say Ramirez spent around $550k for his new ride.
Adding Andrew Friedman Gives Dodgers A New Direction by Mark Stevens
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been spending money like crazy over the last few years, but it has not translated to a lot of success in the postseason. Meanwhile, they see their rivals in San Francisco closing in on another World Series appearance in the last five years.
A change needed to be made, and that person...

The perennial speculation about the job status of Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly was put to rest on Friday, as new president of baseball operations, Andrew Friedman assured that there would be no change in on-field skipper. Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that Friedman left no doubt when asked if Donnie Baseball would be back:
The Los Angeles Dodgers held an introductory press conference for newly appointed president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman on Friday, and Friedman made a point to put an end to speculation around the Dodgers’ managerial situation, at least for 2015. According to Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times, Friedman said Don Mattingly will “definitely” be retained as manager for...
I, like most of the writers here, am not a huge Don Mattingly fan. I’m not in the “fire Don Mattingly now” camp, but if the Dodgers do get rid of him at this afternoon’s press conference I won’t be shedding any tears. Still, in the comments section and on twitter I have been very critical of his in-game decision making. Thus, it’s only fair that I point out something...
Baseball America finished its postseason league Top 20 lists, and the Dodgers had ample and significant representation on every list. I’ll start from the bottom (Arizona Rookie League) and work my way up to Triple-A.

Due in large part to Michael Lewis’ Moneyball, analytical baseball ideology has often sold as a necessity for low-revenue franchises to compete with teams who have vastly more resources. The A’s story was written as brains overcoming riches, and a number of teams in smaller markets decided to emulate their success. Over the past decade, […]
Even though four baseball teams are still fighting for a World Series, the offseason has begun for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
I was beginning to work on a piece about what the Dodgers need to do in the offseason to get over the hump and take home their first World Series title since 1988. Number one on my list was “replace Ned Colletti”.
Andrew Friedman is the Dodgers’ new President...
The 2014 NLDS is a series that Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig would probably like to put behind him. Striking out in key situations and going 3-for-12 at the plate (with a .357 on-base percentage) isn't Puig-like by any means. And after being benched in the pivotal, "must-win" Game 4--in which he would later enter in the ninth inning, as a pinch-runner--pundits...
