Report: Phillies make Cole Hamels available, Dodgers interested

The Philadelphia Phillies may be ready to become “sellers” at this year’s trade deadline.

Los Angeles Dodgers acquire Darwin Barney

The Los Angeles Dodgers made their first splash in the 2014 trade season. Splash is a strong word. It was kind of like they threw a pebble into the Pacific Ocean. But hey, it’s something to write about. Monday afternoon, the Dodgers acquired recently DFA’d Chicago Cubs second baseman Darwin Barney. The Dodgers also received cash from the Cubs, and will send the Cubs a player...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Playing GM with the Boston Red Sox

With the trade deadline looming, we take a look at a potential conversation between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox. In this mock scenario, I sharpen up my mustache and assume the role of Ned Colletti. The role of Boston GM Ben Cherington is played by Boston Red Sox correspondent Alex Peters. Dodgers GM Ned Colletti- 60 grade GM, 70 Grade mustache Campos: So, remember...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Is Matt Kemp on the Move?

Fantasy sports is a pretty cutthroat business. There is little room for nostalgia. Yesterday’s stars can often become today’s albatross and nowhere is that more true than with the Los Angeles Dodgers. They have an outfield littered with big names, but only one of them is really producing. If you remove Yasiel Puig from the discussion, you see three big names that are no longer...

Matt Kemp Is More Valuable In The Dodger Lineup Than Elsewhere

The Dodgers don’t play today. The trade deadline is on Thursday. You’re damned right we’re going to talk about Matt Kemp. More than once, actually, because Brim will be around later today with a math-based look at whether Kemp is still a productive offensive player. (Spoiler alert: he is.) Me, well, I just want to talk about the idea of trading Kemp at all. I suppose I’m...

VIDEO: Minor league brawl erupts between Dodgers and Diamondbacks affiliates

The Dodgers and Diamondbacks aren’t too fond of each other at the big league level so it’s only fitting that their Triple-A affiliates don’t like each other as well. This certainly seems to be the case as the Albuquerque Isotopes and Reno Aces, Triple-A affiliates of the Dodgers and Diamondbacks respectively got into a wild brawl […]

Erisbel Arruebarrena flashes plus helmet throwing & fight fleeing tools in AAA brawl

Last night, a brawl between the Albuquerque Isotopes (Dodgers AAA) and Reno Aces (Diamondbacks AAA) led to nine players and a manager (Phil Nevin of the Aces) being ejected. In the middle of the mess was Dodgers prospect/signing Erisbel Arruebarrena, and what a gigantic mess it was. But let’s go back to the start of it all. On Friday, Arruebarrena hit his first homer for the...

Dodgers Rumors: Los Angeles interested in Red Sox' Jon Lester

The Los Angeles Dodgers, with their deep pockets, are going to be major players at the trade deadline, perhaps making a big move or two. They are in the race, as they took back the top spot in the National League West, defeating the San Francisco Giants 5-0 last night. One player that the Dodgers could make a run for is Boston Red Sox starter Jon Lester. They could never have enough...

Dodgers Rumors: Los Angeles 'unlikely' to trade for elite pitcher

The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Francisco Giants last night by the score of 5-0, behind the two-hit shutout of Clayton Kershaw, who picked up his 12th win of the season. The win moved the Dodgers back into first place in the National League West.  Although the Dodgers are 9th in the league in runs scored and 6th in ERA, they are still looking to add pieces for the playoff...

Los Angeles Dodgers trade rumors: Will Ned Colletti pull the trigger?

For about a month, I’ve been writing about potential trades to improve the Los Angeles Dodgers. With only five days left until the trade deadline, Ned Colletti and the Dodgers still haven’t made any trades. In Colletti’s time with the Dodgers, he has pulled off some stunners before the deadline. The biggest one was a last minute deal that brought Manny Ramirez from Boston...

The Chaos Of The Dodger Outfield

Carl Crawford returned from the disabled list on July 10th, just over two weeks ago. Crawford’s return brought the outfield back up to five players, with no real candidate to play center. I looked at the math of the offense prior to his return, and we’ve had all sorts of fun talking about the outfield shuffle since it re-commenced. So far, it has lived up to advanced billing...

Watch All Three of Yasiel Puig’s Triples from Friday Night

Yasiel Puig has been blasted for his lack of power over the last two months, hitting only one home run since June 1st. The Dodgers outfielder’s poor showing at the Home Run Derby two weeks ago did not help quiet those overzealous critics, but maybe his performance on Friday night will shut a few of them up. Puig became only the second Dodger in franchise history to record three...

Video: Yasiel Puig hits three triples, ties modern MLB record

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig can make seemingly impossible feats appear to be routine. He makes plays with both his bat and his glove, and certainly entertains fans, teammates and analysts on and off the field. And during Friday night’s Dodgers-Giants game, he was the catalyst behind an 8-1 L.A. win with his awesome plate heroics. He belted out three triples, which tied...

Report: Multiple teams talking with Dodgers about Matt Kemp

The Los Angeles Dodgers are in the midst of a pennant chase and that is obviously the franchise’s top priority. But ranking just below the team’s quest for a World Series title is somehow solving its logjam in the outfield. To that end, the Dodgers are trying feverishly to trade Matt Kemp and his massive contract. According to Jon Heyman, five teams have shown interest in Kemp...
