Roundtable: Should The Dodgers Sign James Shields?

PAGES: 1 | 2 Although it's been a relatively quiet process and taken longer than most expected, only one of the three elite starting pitchers remains a free agent -- James Shields.

Today In Dodgers History: Jackie Robinson Inducted Into Hall Of Fame

While hundreds of players have left their mark in baseball history, few, if any, can lay claim to having the impact Jackie Robinson did. On Jan. 23, 1962, six years after he retired, Robison was elected into the Hall of Fame. Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball when he debuted with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. Playing through racial slurs hurled in his direction, Robinson hit .297/.383/.427, led t ...

Today In Dodgers History: Sandy Koufax Elected Into Hall Of Fame

Evaluating The Dodgers Offense: Did It Get Worse?

PAGES: 1 | 2 As far as I can tell, the object of playing offense in baseball is to score runs — and in 2014, the Los Angeles Dodgers did a pretty darn good job of that, finishing sixth in MLB in runs scored and second in the National League. Last week, however, Buster Olney released his list of the "Top 10 MLB Lineups" and the Dodgers actually dropped in the rankings — falling outside the top 10 and even ou ...

An In-Depth Look At The New Dodgers Middle Infield

PAGES: 1 | 2 Thirteen trades and many transactions later, Los Angeles will have a much different looking team for the 2015 season. Center field is Joc Pederson's job to lose, Yasmani Grandal will slot in as the primary catcher, but perhaps the most noticeable change is the brand new middle infield Andrew Friedman acquired (unofficially) on the same day. Jimmy Rollins, the all-time hits leader for the Philad ...

Dodgers And Giants Could Find Common Ground On Andre Ethier Trade

Andrew Friedman and the new front office have enjoyed making trades, and plenty of them. In fact, they've already made a mind-boggling 13 trades this offseason, including three with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (first time since 1976) and three with other NL West rivals. The only NL West team the Dodgers have yet to make a deal with is San Francisco, but one Giants columnist hopes that changes soon. Jo ...
