Baseball’s Finest Moment

It’s true – I am an autographed baseball junkie. In most cases, it’s the thrill of the hunt and then the adrenaline rush when the player whose autograph I am seeking finally signs that ball and hands it back to me (or tosses it back to me at my home away from home in the […]

Is Brian Wilson a Good Fit for the Dodgers?

Okay I admit it; I absolutely hated to see former Giants closer Brian Wilson enter any game against the Dodgers, because when he did, it usually meant two things: one – that the Dodgers were trailing because Wilson was usually only brought in for save situations; and two – he usually got the save. I […]

Hip Talk has Dodger Fans Feeling a Little Uncomfortable

I will be the very first to admit that when I first heard about Clayton Kershaw’s hip issues late last season, I was one uncomfortable Dodger fan, and I know I wasn’t the only one. I immediately had visions of Bo Jackson and notorious hot-headed slugger Albert Bell, whose baseball careers ended at ages 32 and 34 […]

So Where Does Stephen Fife Fit In?

You would think that a starting pitcher with an ERA of 2.70 would have been the buzz of the winter meetings and that Ned Colletti would have been on his cell phone non-stop about the guy, but I’d almost be willing to bet that the name Stephen Fife never even came up once in Nashville. […]

A Dodgers Power-Hitting Third Baseman?

During the 2012 minor league season, a power-hitting third baseman emerged on the scene for the Dodgers – Christopher Jess Retherford, better known as “C.J.” Born in Homestead, Florida, C.J. grew up in Chandler, Arizona and attended Hamilton High School. He later went on to Arizona State University where he helped the Sun Devils to […]

Hooked on a Feeling

Those of you who follow the ThinkBlueLA forum and blog site regularly know that I have been saying for the past two seasons that 2013 is going to be the year of the Dodgers. And while nothing has changed in that regard (except that the outlook is even brighter now), I am going the extra […]

Diamondbacks “Tough Decision, Hard Decision” was the Wrong Decision

The names of several former Dodger players popped up in the news this past week pretty much out of the blue (no pun intended) and in, of all places, Phoenix, Arizona. The entire chain of events actually began on October 17, 2012 when former Dodger left fielder/second baseman Eric Young was unceremoniously fired by the […]
