Maybe I shouldn’t jump the gun, because the Dodgers have not announced the deal (and it wasn’t anything like the initial reports), but according to MLB Trade Rumors.com. the deal is this:
The Braves will acquire Uribe and r[...]
I received this e-mail from Zach Kempner today:
Clayton Kershaw takes the bump for his 10th start tonight in what has been a poor start to the season for the reigning NL MVP and Cy Young Winner. After a 4-0 loss to his arch nemesis Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Gia[...]
So, the Rented Mules Beat Us!
I have never seen Carlos Frias as a starter… but rather a swingman. He can pitch one inning or four, but unless he gets another pitch, I can’t see him as a starter. I think he can have a great career and he could be a trade chip. I also look for Zach Lee to finally make the next start after the Dodgers Ace (Mike Bolsinger[...]
I don’t expect Mike Bolsinger to keep pitching like the Dodgers Ace’s… no I don’t mean he’s pitching like the Dodgers’s ace is currently pitching, I mean that he is pitching like an ACE! I also don’t expect Carlos Frias to maintain a 2.45 ERA this year. However, I do expect Greinke and Anderson to keep pitching well and we ne[...]
LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Dodgers today placed catcher Yasmani Grandal on the seven-day concussion disabled list and recalled catcher Austin Barnes (#65) from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Barnes, 25, is making his first appearance on an active Major League roster after batting .290 with five doubles, three home runs and 13 RBI in 29 games at Triple-A. Barnes has drawn m[...]
This team has changed dramatically over the past year. There’s a new Centerfielder, Catcher, Shortstop and Second-baseman – sometimes there are 8 different faces in the lineup compared to last year, but one thing hasn’t changed, and that is the Manager and Coaching Staff. The Manager is a nice guy, sometimes nice guys finish last… especially if that are JUST nice, an[...]
I’m not going to even mention last night’s game, except to say that Brett Anderson is getting better every start. He’s healthy and that’s the key.
OK, write this down – Here’s what is going to happen in the foreseeable future:
The rotation will be Kershaw, Greinke, Anderson, Frias and Bolsinger for another few starts. If Bolsinger or Frias f[...]
The San Francisco Giants played the Los Angeles Midgets and spanked them soundly… again! Actually, it appear to be a rented mule beating contest.
We can talk about how much they need another starter, but 12 more starters won’t help when you can’t score runs! Lately, it seems that everyone hits or no one hits.
Joc Pederson doubled to lead off the game and that[...]
Dee Gordon is a great kid and should do well in his home state of Florida, but here’s my take on The Trade of Haren and Gordon. One can cry about the Dodgers lack of sped and a base-stealer at the top of the lineup, but the Dodgers are currently 4th in all of baseball in runs scored, even though they are second to last in stolen bases. I don’t think FAZ regards [...]
