Podcast: ‘Dugout Blues’ episode 124 – Greinke, Turner, prospects, July 2

On this episode of “Dugout Blues,” Jared Massey (Dodgers Nation) and I are back after missing last week due to Father’s Day. Thanks, Dad. Contrary to popular belief, the Dodgers are in fact in first place and the world has not ended. It’s hard to believe, but it’s a fact. Zack Greinke is pitching really well, like he wants a big payday this winter. Here’s hoping the...

Justin Turner deserves a spot in the All-Star Game

Since joining the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2014, Justin Turner has quietly been one of baseball’s best hitters. As a utility infielder in 2014, Turner had a slash line of .340/.404/.493 with a wRC+ of 157, a wOBA of .394, and a WAR of 3.2. He also had career highs with seven home runs, 43 RBI, and 46 runs scored. It looked like Turner’s breakout season, but many questioned if...

Justin Turner: The One That Got Away

On December 2nd, 2013 the Mets made a decision that looms large on their current roster when they decided to non-tender Justin Turner. At the time, Turner was coming off arguably his most productive season as he set a career high in WAR at 0.8 and OPS+ at 100 despite getting only 200 at-bats while playing seven different positions. The move to cut a valuable utility infielder who...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Justin Turner is quietly amazing

According to spottrac, the Los Angeles Dodgers’ payroll is just shy of $276 million and is the highest in baseball by about $60 million. The Dodgers have a number of highly paid stars and a number of overpaid players. They also have a lot of dead weight, as spottrac has their “dead money” at $52 million. Given all the fat contracts, it’s surprising that one of the best players...

Does Justin Turner deserve to play every day for the Los Angeles Dodgers?

For the first time all season, Justin Turner started for a fourth day in a row for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday. The results were not good: he was hitless in four trips with a strikeout as the Chicago Cubs beat the Dodgers 4-2 at Wrigley Field. It was the first time he had failed to get a hit in his last 23 starts, dating back to May 22.  Turner’s .325 average leads the...

Report: Dodgers Sign Justin Turner. Finally.

(via) I feel like we’ve been talking about Justin Turner for so long — months, if we’re including the old MSTI — that the fact that news just came out that they have in fact signed him seems more anti-climactic than anything. This seemed pretty obvious a few days ago, when the Dodgers let loose that a signing of an infielder was imminent, that there was just about no one...
