DODGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: Dodgers Pitcher Clayton Kershaw Wins Historic Face-Off With Angels Slugger Mike Trout

When Mike Trout stepped up to the plate for the first time in Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers there was more on the line than just getting someone on base or scoring runs. It was a more than gaining ground on the Astros or the Dodgers gaining space from the Giants. It was the first time in league history that  two reigning MVPs faced off against each other.So--who...

Dodgers 5, Mike Trout 3: Greinke Rolls Again

Another Zack Greinke start, another dominating performance, and another Dodger win. This time, he (mostly) shut down the Angels, leading to a final score of 5-3. The only damage against Greinke was caused by him playing with fire. The first three times he faced Kole Calhoun, he gave up three singles. Kole Calhoun was hitting in front of Mike Trout. Generally, allowing runners on...

Seager’s Workin’ On My Buy Moves

Corey Seager should've been called up already. Brucely, we're up against it with the Dodgers. We have the aging vet, Jimmy Rollins, who looks like toast if you were to take doodie and pat it into the shape of toast and, uh, toast it. We have Justin Turner, who is having a career year but isn't really this good and getting more slap hits than another Turner. We have Dumb Mattingly...

Housekeeping: Beachy, Tsao, Morse, Heisey DFA’d

This is just some housekeeping, because you’ve probably seen it all already, and it’s meant more because when things get so crazy around deadline time, the site can churn when each post collects two bajillion comments. So, earlier, I wondered how the Dodgers would make room on the 40-man roster. Turns out my guesses were correct… mostly. Added to 40-man: Alex Wood, Mat Latos...

Dodgers upgrade rotation in unexpected, intelligent way

The Dodgers have an apparently endless supply of cash, and are using it to run the largest payroll in baseball this year, so naturally, any time a prominent and expensive player is rumored to be trade bait, LA is one of the first teams mentioned. They’ve been linked to Cole Hamels all year. More recently, […]

Report: Dodgers make Yasiel Puig available in trade

Remember the Summer of Puig in 2013? When Cuban outfielder Yasiel Puig stormed into Major League Baseball as a 22-year-old and posted a WAR of 5.0 in just 104 games while galvanizing the entire Los Angeles Dodgers franchise? Yeah, that seems like a long time ago, as the Dodgers are now reportedly ready to move on from the former All-Star. Bob Nightengale reports that the Dodgers...

The Dodgers Are Dominating In Pairs

When somebody hears the word "Dodgers," the first names that come to mind are Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke, for a number of valid reasons. It's not often that a team has both of the top pitchers over the last 30 games, with respective ERA's of 0.45 and 0.00; it's nearly impossible to pitch any better. While Kershaw and Greinke have been the most dominating pair (more on them...

Tough decision await the Giants at the trade deadline

It’s an odd year, which means the San Francisco Giants really shouldn’t bother trying to add anything at the trade deadline since there’s no point. But the Giants find themselves in the thick of contention with a chance to get to an odd year-playoffs for the first time since 2003, and that means they’ll be actively shopping over the next seven days.
