Matt Kemp receives punishment for telling the truth

As children we were taught to never lie and to always tell the truth, no matter how bad the situation was. We were told the amazing anecdotal story of George Washington chopping down his father’s beloved cherry tree and not being punished after telling his father: “I cannot tell a lie, I did it with my little […]

Friedman has unique challenge ahead New President of Baseball Operations not a big fan of prima donnas

The news was exciting and it spread throughout the baseball world like wildfire. On Tuesday morning ESPNLA.com’s Ramona Shelburne broke the news that the Dodgers had successfully lured much-coveted Tampa Bay Rays general manager Andrew Friedman away from the financially strapped franchise and into the Dodgers fold to fill their newly-created President of Baseball Operations position.

Dodgers designate Stephen Fife for assignment

When the Dodgers acquired right-hander Stephen Fife from the Boston Red Sox on July 31, 2011, they weren’t exactly sure what they were getting. But they thought highly enough of him after only six starts with the Double-A Chattanooga Lookouts (3-1, 4.01 ERA) to add him to the 40-man roster to protect him from the […]

Royals FP

Royals proving to be everything that Dodgers were not

Perhaps it’s unfair to compare the Kansas City Royals to the Los Angeles Dodgers, after all, the two teams aren’t even in the same league – literally and figuratively. Literally, the Royals are in the American League and the Dodgers the National League. Figuratively, the Royals had a 2014 opening day payroll of $ 92,185,521 and […]

NLDS-Game Four-Los Angeles Dodgers against the St.Louis Cardinals

The Dodgers best not trade Matt Kemp

It’s probably safe to say that if the Dodgers never hear the name Matt again it will be too soon – Matt Kemp notwithstanding. During each of the four NLDS games against the St.Louis Cardinals, one third of their lineup was named Matt and each of the three played a huge role in derailing the Dodgers bid for […]

Great Lakes Loons – The bullpen the Dodgers wish they had

As we perhaps feared with the Dodgers going into the NLDS, there was concern that the bullpen might not be up to the job. It must have been a bit of a nightmare for manager Don Mattingly and pitching coach Rick Honeycutt to even consider going to the pen. However, it appears Mattingly does play […]

10-7-14 Ramirez Play - FP

Does Miguel Rojas make that play?

We all know that hindsight is 20/20 and that second-guessing only adds more frustration to an already frustrating situation. But one has to ask oneself if Miguel Rojas had been brought into game-4 of the NLDS as a defensive replacement for Hanley Ramirez in the top of the seventh inning knowing that heart of the Cardinals […]

10-7-14 Ethier Pickoff FP

Matt Adams home run was not the biggest play of Game-4 Ethier pickoff at third base turned potential Game-4 win into playoff-ending loss

A day, a week, a month or even a century from now it will forever be Matt Adams’s devastating three-run home run in the bottom of the seventh inning off of Clayton Kershaw that will be remembered as the turning point of Game-4 of the 2014 NLDS in which the Dodgers were eliminated from the […]
