Andrew Toles – The missing element

As baseball fans – we’re talking true, hardcore, dyed-in-the-wool, loyal, die-hard, unwavering baseball fans – it is frustrating beyond all belief when we see something that is so blatantly wrong with our beloved team, yet even when those directly responsible are questioned about it, they rarely (if ever) do anything to rectify it or even acknowledge that it […]

On July 2, 2015 the Dodgers raided the Toronto Blue Jays farm system poaching shortstop Tim Locastro and right-handed pitcher Chase De Jong.

#PuigNotOK

With the August 1 trade deadline less than two weeks away, the last thing … the very last thing that the Dodgers needed was for one of the guy’s whose name is being tossed around as a key trading piece to pull up lame – literally. In the top of the seventh inning of Thursday’s matinee […]

Raptors OF - Kevin Johnson FP

The Ogden Three

Let’s face it, the chances of us ever again seeing a group of Dodgers minor league prospects like the famed “Jacksonville Five” – Chad Billingsley, Andy LaRoche, Joel Guzman, Russell Martin, and Jonathan Broxton – are extremely remote.
