What happened in 2014: Adrian Gonzalez re-established his power and was an anchor in the middle of the Dodgers’ lineup.
We were all resigned to the fact that when the Dodgers acquired Gonzalez, he wasn’t going to be the same player he was in San Diego or Boston (2011). But he showed glimpses of it in 2014, particularly...
Awards season has begun! …yay? Tonight kicked things off with the presentation of the Gold Glove winners, along with the revealing of the Cy Young and MVP “finalists” (the top 3) for each league.
Gold glove awards are generally useless (Derek Jeter won three), but it’s still fun to see Dodger players get recognized for their efforts. We’ll go further into depth on each...
Two and a half years ago, the Los Angeles Dodgers traded James Loney and four prospects, two of which were highly touted pitchers, to the Boston Red Sox for Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, Nick Punto and Adrian Gonzalez.
Punto has since moved on to the Oakland A’s, and Beckett pitched well for the Dodgers this year before tearing a labrum in his hip, forcing his retirement. Crawford...
Despite a horrorshow of a postseason, the Los Angeles Dodgers had a regular season to be proud of.
They overcame a 9.5 game deficit in less than a month, saw a pitching season for the record books, and announced that Vin Scully would be returning for his 66th season as the voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Here, I will present some awards for individual performances by the Dodgers...
On Sunday, Adrian Gonzalez had two hits, including his 27th homer of the season, and drove in three runs in the Dodgers’ season-ending 10-5 win over Colorado. Already all but guaranteed to lead the NL in runs batted in, the three he brought in yesterday ensured that he’d top Mike Trout and lead all of baseball for […]
Future Hall of Fame TE Tony Gonzalez says that he is retired. He has a job with CBS for the upcoming season as well. But Gonzalez claims that his status has not stopped teams from calling him to make a comeback. Gonzalez admitted that he might be tempted to return if a playoff contender calls him.
“The temptation would be there, but I don’t know what the gain would be,” he...
The Dodgers may have found the next Adrian Gonzalez. Well, not really. But they did sign Mexican first baseman in Eric Meza. They did so late on July 2, which is why he wasn’t in the first post about July 2 prospects.
Meza’s bonus amount is unknown. Odds are, it wasn’t a significant amount of money and shouldn’t really have an impact on the Dodgers signing pool.
As you may know, the Los Angeles Dodgers are in Australia in advance of the team’s season-opening series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The official Twitter account of the Dodgers has been doing a phenomenal job of chronicling the trip, but sometimes revealing too much causes too much to be revealed. Case in point: The above […] The post Nightmare Fuel: Dodgers’ Adrian Gonzalez...

Biggest Surprise of First Half: For the Dodgers it would have to be Juan Uribe. Uribe has had a terrible first 2 years in Dodger blue but seems to have found his stroke. His first half slash line looks like this, .271/.344/.415. He seems to be healthy and also seems to be seeing the ball well. He is in the walk year of the contract...
