Jose Dominguez FP 3

Is there more to the Jose Dominguez trade than meets the eye?

At first glance it appears that the trade that brought veteran right-hander Joel Peralta and minor league left-hander Adam Liberatore to the Dodgers in exchange for hard-throwing right-hander Jose Dominguez and minor league right-hander Greg Harris to the Tampa Bay Rays is pretty much an even swap, with one glaring exception – age. The Rays got […]

Are there ‘Too Many Cooks’ in the Dodgers front office?

When the highly creative short video comedy Too Many Cooks made its debut during late-night cable television’s Adult Swim on October 28, 2014, it immediately went viral. In fact, as of today, November 20, the YouTube version of the 11-minute video clip has had nearly three and a half million hits. It is, of course, a nonsensical parody […]

Make no mistake – It’s still all about the money

If the 2014 World Series taught us anything, it taught us once again that it’s not always the best two teams that make it to the fall classic, it’s the hottest two teams. It’s difficult, if not impossible to argue that the Dodgers and Angels were clearly the best two teams heading into the postseason, […]

Julio Urias 4-14-14 FP

It’s time to take the kid gloves off of Julio Urias

For the past two seasons former Dodgers Director of Player Development DeJon Watson and former Dodgers Director of Amateur Scouting Logan White were extremely cautious with top Dodgers pitching prospect Julio Urias – and with very good reason.
