Granderson says all the right things on both sides of trade

Like many, perhaps even most professional athletes, 36-year-old / 14-year MLB veteran Curtis Granderson is on social media, at least on Twitter. Also like most professional athletes, he does not use this platform to gloat or as an attempt to promote himself; heaven knows he has no need to whatsoever. When news that the veteran […]

There is no second place in the World Series Dodgers acquire Curtis Granderson from Mets to bolster already strong lineup

Just when most of us were all warm and fuzzy after the Dodgers 8-5 win over the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park on Friday night and decided to check Twitter one last time before hitting the sack, Twitter exploded.

It’s about rings not records

This year the word “win” has become a regularly used word in Los Angeles. The 2017 Dodgers have actually done so much winning that when they lose it almost feels foreign. As of August 17, the team has already won 85 games with roughly a month and an half of baseball yet to play. So, […]

‘Bellinger Magic’ is very real

Before the April 25, 2017 game between the Dodgers and the Giants at AT&T Park in San Francisco, the Dodgers were 9-11 on the season, five games behind the NL West-leading Colorado Rockies and 3.5 games behind the second place Arizona Diamondbacks.

AGon may be closer to returning than you think

Make no mistake about it, an Advanced Single-A rehab game is not the same as a major league game, not by any stretch of the imagination. However, a 93-MPH fastball is a 93-MPH fastball and a filthy slider is a filthy slider no matter what level it is on. On Monday night, rehabbing Dodgers first […]

Pederson could find himself on the outside looking in for playoffs

It’s one of those things that happens to (almost) every major leaguer but one that nobody likes to talk about … a slump. For pitchers, it often results with a stint on the disabled list, especially with the new 10-day DL now in place. But for position players, it can sometimes result in a plane […]

Dodgers conversion game from position player to pitcher accelerates

The Dodgers have continued to play the position-player-to-pitcher conversion game during the 2017 season. In fact, they have accelerated the game. That is, converting position players to the mound. The Dodgers player development department has made a conscious effort to make players much more versatile by playing multiple positions and working from their strengths by […]

Was Seager’s 3-run single biggest hit of the year for Dodgers?

When your favorite team is leading its division by 17 games with only 46 games remaining, it’s hard to say that any one hit at this point is the proverbial biggest hit of the season. But on Saturday night before a sold out Dodger Stadium crowd, 23-year-old Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager had what was arguably […]
