VIDEO: Minor league brawl erupts between Dodgers and Diamondbacks affiliates

The Dodgers and Diamondbacks aren’t too fond of each other at the big league level so it’s only fitting that their Triple-A affiliates don’t like each other as well. This certainly seems to be the case as the Albuquerque Isotopes and Reno Aces, Triple-A affiliates of the Dodgers and Diamondbacks respectively got into a wild brawl […]

Erisbel Arruebarrena flashes plus helmet throwing & fight fleeing tools in AAA brawl

Last night, a brawl between the Albuquerque Isotopes (Dodgers AAA) and Reno Aces (Diamondbacks AAA) led to nine players and a manager (Phil Nevin of the Aces) being ejected. In the middle of the mess was Dodgers prospect/signing Erisbel Arruebarrena, and what a gigantic mess it was. But let’s go back to the start of it all. On Friday, Arruebarrena hit his first homer for the...

Dodgers Rumors: Los Angeles interested in Red Sox' Jon Lester

The Los Angeles Dodgers, with their deep pockets, are going to be major players at the trade deadline, perhaps making a big move or two. They are in the race, as they took back the top spot in the National League West, defeating the San Francisco Giants 5-0 last night. One player that the Dodgers could make a run for is Boston Red Sox starter Jon Lester. They could never have enough...

Dodgers Rumors: Los Angeles 'unlikely' to trade for elite pitcher

The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Francisco Giants last night by the score of 5-0, behind the two-hit shutout of Clayton Kershaw, who picked up his 12th win of the season. The win moved the Dodgers back into first place in the National League West.  Although the Dodgers are 9th in the league in runs scored and 6th in ERA, they are still looking to add pieces for the playoff...

Los Angeles Dodgers trade rumors: Will Ned Colletti pull the trigger?

For about a month, I’ve been writing about potential trades to improve the Los Angeles Dodgers. With only five days left until the trade deadline, Ned Colletti and the Dodgers still haven’t made any trades. In Colletti’s time with the Dodgers, he has pulled off some stunners before the deadline. The biggest one was a last minute deal that brought Manny Ramirez from Boston...

The Chaos Of The Dodger Outfield

Carl Crawford returned from the disabled list on July 10th, just over two weeks ago. Crawford’s return brought the outfield back up to five players, with no real candidate to play center. I looked at the math of the offense prior to his return, and we’ve had all sorts of fun talking about the outfield shuffle since it re-commenced. So far, it has lived up to advanced billing...

Watch All Three of Yasiel Puig’s Triples from Friday Night

Yasiel Puig has been blasted for his lack of power over the last two months, hitting only one home run since June 1st. The Dodgers outfielder’s poor showing at the Home Run Derby two weeks ago did not help quiet those overzealous critics, but maybe his performance on Friday night will shut a few of them up. Puig became only the second Dodger in franchise history to record three...

Video: Yasiel Puig hits three triples, ties modern MLB record

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig can make seemingly impossible feats appear to be routine. He makes plays with both his bat and his glove, and certainly entertains fans, teammates and analysts on and off the field. And during Friday night’s Dodgers-Giants game, he was the catalyst behind an 8-1 L.A. win with his awesome plate heroics. He belted out three triples, which tied...

Dodgers 8, Giants 1: Yasiel Puig fails to hit a home run yet again. Is he a bust?

The Dodgers tripled their way to glory in a 8-1 win in the first game of a key three-game series against the rival Giants. Yasiel Puig starred, smacking three triples and a double en route to a 4-for-5 day in his first start in center field in 2014. Puig is only the second Dodger ever to hit three triples in a game, the other being Jimmy Sheckard … back in 1901. In short, Puig...

Report: Multiple teams talking with Dodgers about Matt Kemp

The Los Angeles Dodgers are in the midst of a pennant chase and that is obviously the franchise’s top priority. But ranking just below the team’s quest for a World Series title is somehow solving its logjam in the outfield. To that end, the Dodgers are trying feverishly to trade Matt Kemp and his massive contract. According to Jon Heyman, five teams have shown interest in Kemp...

Matt Kemp’s Agent On Trade Talks: ‘This Might Be The Time To Change’

The Los Angeles Dodgers could be preparing to make some room in their crowded outfield by finally moving Matt Kemp. The 29-year-old’s agent, Dave Stewart, suggested last week that his client could be joining a new team this season when he said Kemp wants to be an every day center fielder and he wouldn’t be opposed to a trade if the Dodgers couldn’t make that happen. It appears...

Dodgers Rumors: Los Angeles pursuing relief pitchers

The Los Angeles Dodgers fell to the Pittsburgh Pirates yesterday by the score of 6-1. Dan Haren allowed five runs on four hits in five innings to take the loss, while the offense managed only five hits off tough Pirates' pitching. The loss dropped the Dodgers to 56-47, a game and a half behind the San Francisco Giants in the National League West.  Although the Dodgers are eighth...

Are the Dodgers about to dump Dan Haren?

Before Dan Haren signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers, rumors still persisted that the team was intent on landing Masahiro Tanaka. He knew that Chad Billingsley was on the comeback trail. There was a pretty good chance he'd be looking over his shoulder at some point in the season if he wasn't performing well. Funny thing is, even though Tanaka landed with the New York Yankees...

Dodgers' OF negative trade value makes Joc Pederson more valuable

There's a certain cognitive dissonance a lot of baseball fans feel between the value to the team of players' on-field contributions (almost always positive) as compared to the value minus the cost (not necessarily positive).When considering possible trades, you're not trading for just the player -- you're also trading for the contract. In baseball, you can cut a guy...
