2015 Dodger Outlook: Why The Bullpen Will Be Improved

When Andrew Friedman was hired as president of baseball operations by the Los Angeles Dodgers, his most obvious task was improving one of the worst bullpens in the MLB last season.

PAGES: 1 | 2 | 3 With the Hall of Fame election results set to be announced Tuesday, plenty of writers have started publishing their ballots online and giving thoughtful reasoning for their selections.

Today In Dodger History: Dodgers Sign Carlos Frias

On Jan. 3 2007, the Los Angeles Dodgers signed Carlos Frias out of the Dominican Republic as an amateur free agent.

2015 Offseason Free Agent Profile: Tom Gorzelanny

PAGES: 1 | 2 While the Los Angeles Dodgers have made strides this offseason in addressing their bullpen with the additions of Mike Bolsinger, Chris Hatcher, Juan Nicasio and Joel Peralta, an argument can be made more retooling is in their best interest if not required.

2015 Dodgers Resolutions: What Key Players Must Do This Year

In Friedman We Trust: Making Sense Of The Dodgers Offseason

To the casual Los Angeles Dodger fan this offseason has been quite frightening. Hanley Ramirez was never really coming back to the Dodgers, the league leader in stolen bases, Dee Gordon, was traded for a pitching prospect who was then traded for a second baseman in the last year of his deal, and arguably the best hitter in the second half of 2014, Matt Kemp, was traded for a catcher with a suspension in his ...

Dodgers Must Flex Power Again By Signing Max Scherzer

The Los Angeles Dodgers have made a splash this winter, but in a much different way than years past. Instead of spending hundreds of millions of dollars to improve the team, the new front office has done their part on the trade front. There's a new duo up the middle in the infield, a new back end of the rotation and a few new faces in the bullpen. Whether the team is better than the 94-win, NL West champion ...
