Kershaw, Bumgarner Voted Top Choices To Start World Series Game 7

Clayton Kershaw has not only been the Los Angeles Dodgers most consistent pitcher over the last three years, he's also made his mark as the best pitcher in baseball -- despite his recent postseason struggles. Last season, Kershaw won the Cy Young Award for the third time in the last four years, and the National League MVP to his growing list of awards. Despite missing one month of the season, Kershaw led th ...

Yasiel Puig And Juan Uribe Prank Former Dodgers Manager Tommy Lasorda

This spring has been no exception, though Lasorda was recently the victim of a prank at the hands of Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe and outfielder Yasiel Puig on ...

What Does The Hector Olivera Signing Mean For The Dodgers?

If there has been one word to sum up the Dodgers offseason thus far, I think the one I would choose is depth. With big names like Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez headed out of town, the front office's goal has seemingly been to strengthen the team's 40-man roster from the bottom up. As I've said before, the goal is to avoid being in a place where you have to trade actual players for Kevin Correia and Roberto H ...

Dodgers Spring Training: Ramon Benjamin Worth Keeping An Eye On

PAGES: 1 | 2 A few years ago, I remember heading to the backfields of Camelback Ranch to watch the Minor Leaguers prepare for their season. There were two games being played, simultaneously, on fields that were adjacent. Needless to say, I was busy. As the names and faces became less and less familiar, my interest waned. The lesser-known players took over for the better prospects late in the game and few ca ...

Dodgers Spring Training: Holmes, Urias Keep Busy On Backfields

So the game was in Surprise today; the Texas Rangers' Spring Training home. I didn't have a credential so I had to debate about how I was going to spend my day. I headed over to the backfields in the morning and saw some cool stuff. Imagine four-ish baseball fields with their backstops all facing the same way, so it's kind of a baseball sandwich. Now imagine roughly 200 players, plus instructors, running dr ...

Dodgers 2015: How Does The New Catching Duo Rank In The NL?

PAGES: 1 | 2 Earlier this offseason, I analyzed the Dodgers' new middle infield of Howie Kendrick and Jimmy Rollins and compared them to last season's tandem of Dee Gordon and Hanley Ramirez. In addition to second base and shortstop, there will be a new starter at catcher, with Yasmani Grandal taking the helm. Grandal, 26, was the headline piece acquired from the San Diego Padres in the Matt Kemp trade. He ...

Dodgers Spring Training: Behind The Scenes At Camelback Ranch

I arrived at Camelback Ranch Monday and below are some observations from my day's work. The first player I saw when I arrived was Yasiel Puig. He didn't play on Monday and was walking to his car. I've never met him before, so I wanted to say hi but not make a big deal out of it. He's a personable guy, so I figured he'd at least acknowledge my existence as we walked past each other. Should I say hello? Hola? ...

If Clayton Kershaw gets hurt or inexplicably loses form, the Blue are damaged. Zack Greinke. Adrian Gonzalez. Yasiel Puig. These are core players, but also ones who are relatively predictable, at least by the standards of pro sports. Among the ne ...

Dodgers Nation Wishes Raul Mondesi A Happy Birthday

In 1988 the Los Angeles Dodgers signed a 17-yea- old outfielder out of the Dominican Republic named Raul Mondesi.
