JUSTIN TURNER RUMORS

Don Mattingly thinking Justin Turner, playoff roster before Dodgers defeat Rockies

The Dodgers’ Don Mattingly, like every other manager about to lead his team into the postseason, has decisions to make before the playoffs begin — as well as during them.

How Do We Explain Justin Turner?

Of all the ways the Mets could Met, this one has been the most beneficial to all of us: They non-tendered Justin Turner last winter, slammed his “hustle,” then watched him blossom into a vital part of a Dodgers team with championship aspirations and single-handedly outperform most of the 2014 New York offense. Mets gonna Mets, as they say, and this one has so many different...

Dodgers 4, Giants 2: Justin Turner takes a selfie for the Giants

The Dodgers‘ magic number was reduced to one behind Zack Greinke‘s eight stellar innings of two-run ball in which he struck out five, limited the Giants to six hits, and walked none. Greinke didn’t face a batter with a runner in scoring position all game, helping to limit opportunities for a comeback. Offensively, the Dodgers got to Madison Bumgarner early in the game, with...

Justin Turner Was On A Mission Last Night

Dodgers utility man Justin Turner put on a heck of show last night, seemingly doing everything he could to beat his old teammates. Turner turned two key double plays against the Mets, and was no slouch at the plate singling, doubling, drawing a walk and scoring a run. Turner also stole a base and nearly scored another run if not for a botched suicide squeeze by Dan Haren who failed...

Report: Dodgers Sign Justin Turner. Finally.

(via) I feel like we’ve been talking about Justin Turner for so long — months, if we’re including the old MSTI — that the fact that news just came out that they have in fact signed him seems more anti-climactic than anything. This seemed pretty obvious a few days ago, when the Dodgers let loose that a signing of an infielder was imminent, that there was just about no one...

Should the Mets give Justin Turner an extension?

Justin Turner has been a fan favorite in Queens since his crazy 20 RBI in May of 2011, and it was never doubted he would make the opening day roster two years in a row. he has definitely shown that he isn’t exactly consistent when he plays every day, but he will get it done on the bench.
