Camelback Ranch – Game Recap – May 26, 2010

Camelback Ranch – Game Recap – May 26, 2010

The Dodgers lost to the Kansas City Royals today 8-4.  I truly believe that many of the players are focused upon Opening Day and are just bored with what is going on.  The coaches are just going through the motions, the writers are just going through the motions, so why not the players as well?  [...]

No baseball facility would be complete without workout rooms with all the state-of-the-art machines.  Camelback Ranch is no different.  The minor league workout area is expansive and certainly a tribute to the Dodgers commitment to conditioning.  The same is true with the Training Room and the Whirlpool and Ice Room.

Camelback Ranch – Down on the Farm

When I first heard that  the Dodgers would leave Vero Beach and move to Camelback Ranch, I knew that it was the end of an era, and that there would never in a million years be another place like Dodgertown.  Sadly and happily, I was right!  Dodgertown was a mythical place, where dreams were made [...]

Camelback Ranch Report – Noon – March 22nd

DODGER UPDATES: Jamie Hoffman was returned to the Dodgers by the Yanks who took him in Rule 5 (as I suspected).  This is the second time the Dodgers almost lost him.  Is he back for good?    The Dodgers should be much better at AAA. Some Dodger Brass feel that Charlie Haeger cannot pitch in [...]

This Is Big!

This Is Big!
