DODGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Dodgers @ Pirates July 23, 2014: Unsure If Hanley Ramirez Still Exists

Let’s update the “Hanley Ramirez run of games missed,” shall we? I should probably just link you to the last time I did this rather than using up a lot of space on what’s become an increasingly long list. And yet! I’m doing it anyway. Dodgers Pirates 4:05 p.m. PT Pittsburgh, Pa. 2B Gordon RF Polanco RF Kemp LF Snyder ...

Dodgers’ answer to finding a bat at the deadline: Alex Guerrero

While we’re easily frustrated by the Dodgers’ inconsistent offense, they actually can score some runs, even while missing Yasiel Puig and Hanley Ramirez. The Dodgers are 10th in the majors in runs scored — no small feat. They also have the sixth-best walk rate in the league (9.5 percent). While there needs to be more consistency, they don’t need a big boost on offense. With...

Should We Be Frightened About Ned Colletti Trading For A Reliever?

This Dodger bullpen, it is, well, not good. Kenley Jansen isn’t the problem, of course, and neither is J.P. Howell. We’ve talked a few times about how Brandon League is at least adequate; Brian Wilson has been up and down, but obviously isn’t going anywhere with that 2015 player option. Chris Perez has been awful. Paul Maholm hasn’t been much better. Jamey Wright is striking...

Don Mattingly doesn’t want Yasiel Puig in center field because he’s ‘out of control most of the time’

With Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Yasiel Puig, Carl Crawford, and Scott Van Slyke the Los Angeles Dodgers have a pretty talented group of outfielders when everyone is healthy. Unfortunately, it’s not necessarily a complete outfield in terms of where each is best suited to play. Kemp spent the majority of 2008-2012 in center field, but […]

Dodgers Rumors: Los Angeles 'trying hard' to trade Matt Kemp

Dodgers' OF negative trade value makes Joc Pederson more valuable

There's a certain cognitive dissonance a lot of baseball fans feel between the value to the team of players' on-field contributions (almost always positive) as compared to the value minus the cost (not necessarily positive).When considering possible trades, you're not trading for just the player -- you're also trading for the contract. In baseball, you can cut a guy...

Trading Crawford, Beckett and Gonzalez: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Thank you, Rubby At the time it happened, the trade of Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Adrian Gonzalez cleared some overpaid, non-performing detritus from our coffers. And, for the most part, seeing those smug mugs sent packing was reward enough. But it’s good to see that trade still paying dividends for us, a year after winning the World Series.

A look at the trade market, and if the Dodgers should go all-in

In my last post, I discussed how I saw the Dodgers' chances going forward (hint: it's good). They have an excellent chance of getting to the playoffs. There are a few holes of course. Which team doesn't have a few holes?But the Dodgers' main concern at this point is really the postseason. Over the course of the regular season, total talent on the roster is a good...

WATCH: Puig parties on private plane after All-Star Game
