Steven Proscia FP

Down on the Farm – Steven Proscia – Money well spent

When Steven Proscia was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the 39th round of the 2008 First Year Player Draft out of Don Bosco Preparatory School (Ramsey, NJ), the then 17-year-old Suffern, New York native opted to attend the University of Virginia instead.

Kenley Jansen FP

Everybody is worried about Kenley but Kenley

Kenley Jansen blew a save on Tuesday night. One night later he gave up a game-winning home run. The world as we know it is coming to an end, the sky is falling, Jansen must be hurt, he’s no good, the Dodgers need to remove him from the closer role or get rid of him, […]

4-9-14 Dee Gordon FP

Dee Gordon is having a great season so far, but…

Remember when everybody had Cuban sensation Alex Guerrero pegged to be the Dodgers opening day second baseman, even Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti? Remember when Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that he was fine with platooning several guys at second base until one of them proves that they deserve the everyday job? By all accounts, […]

Opening Day 2014 Anthem FP

Did the Dodgers really win before a sellout crowd last night?

The Dodgers beat the Tigers on Tuesday night – that’s a fact and it’s in the record books forever. But did they actually win before a sellout crowd at Dodger Stadium as they are claiming? Allow me to digress. Prior to Tuesday’s game a discussion took place on Twitter regarding what constituted a sellout crowd […]

Tim Brown’s ‘Must Read’ article

It’s not often that I write an article here on ThinkBlueLA pointing our loyal readers to an article written elsewhere. In fact, I don’t recall ever doing so. Or sure, I frequently include links to other articles and give an occasional “hat tip” to many great Dodgers beat writers and fellow bloggers, but it is rather […]

Hanley 2nd HR FP

Some pretty incredible things happened on Sunday night

If the Dodgers still gave their season ticket holders hard tickets instead of forcing them print out their own paper tickets at home, their tickets from Sunday night’s game against the Hated Ones might have been worth something to memorabilia collectors. Granted, there wasn’t a no-hitter or four consecutive home runs or some other major […]

Puig & George Lopez FP

George Lopez & Yasiel Puig ‘Caption Call’ draws retweet from the comedian

Prior to Sunday night’s nationally televised game between the Dodgers and Giants at Dodger Stadium, popular comedian and lifelong Dodger fan George Lopez was spotted on the field talking with Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig. I happened to capture the moment with a photograph and subsequently posted a ‘Caption Call’ for it on Twitter. A few […]

Kemp 2nd HR 4-6-14 FP

Kemp’s second home run tells us all we need to know

There is no denying that Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp has created divided feelings among Dodger fans – and with good cause. I mean let’s face it, over the last season and a half he has been little more than a (very) highly paid cheer leader – first with his hamstrings, then with his injured shoulder […]

Lindsey Caughel 3-4-14 FP

Lost in Quakes hype and hoopla, Lindsey Caughel continues to impress

If Dodger fans living in the southern California area want to get a look at Dodgers right-hander Lindsey Caughel, they better head on down to Rancho Cucamonga – and soon. What’s the big rush, you ask? The big rush is that Caughel may not be with the Quakes much longer. When ThinkBlueLA broke the news on March […]
