Today In Dodgers History: Justin Turner Signs With Dodgers

Although Justin Turner was coming off of the best season of his career in 2013, he was non-tendered by the New York Mets and became a free agent.

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.

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 ...
