DODGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Vin Scully loses World Series ring; Dodgers help find it via Twitter

We’ve all been there before.  Where did I leave my keys?  I know I put my watch down over here.  Darnit, I can’t find my cell phone.  But if the stakes are a World Series ring from 1988, the panic might be a little more desperate.  Even a wedding ring might be more easily replaced.  Apparently, legendary Brooklyn Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully had temporarily...

Dodgers Continue To Rework Organizational Catching Depth

Good holy lord, do we all need another topic to discuss right now. Let’s go with this one: Earlier today, the Dodgers acquired minor league outfielder Matt Long from the Angels to complete the Drew Butera trade, then flipped Long and recently-DFA’d pitcher Jarret Martin to Milwaukee for minor league catcher Shawn Zarraga. Okay, so maybe that’s not all that exciting. But do...

Dodgers DFA Brian Wilson, make Brandon McCarthy official

During Farhan Zaidi’s press conference discussing the Brandon McCarthy signing, the Dodgers designated Brian Wilson for assignment to make room for McCarthy on the 40-man roster. This is certainly a move some have, for lack of a better term, fantasized about but thought it was a pipe dream of sorts. Then we remember this isn’t Ned Colletti’s front office anymore. “This was...

Yasmani Grandal could make trading Matt Kemp palatable

I’m not going to lie: I am quite happy the Dodgers’ primary catcher is Yasmani Grandal. I’ve been on him for about a year, and with Andrew Friedman’s front office being all about pitch framing, a match was natural. I don’t like the fact the Dodgers had to trade Matt Kemp to get him, but here we are. Let’s look at just what the Dodgers have in Grandal. Here’s what I...

Tribe Targets: Chad Billingsley

Continuing on in an effort to guess which bottom of the barrel starting pitchers the Indians may be interested in this off-season, we come to Chad Billingsley. Billingsley was drafted by the Dodgers in 2003 and made his debut in 2006, remaining in Los Angeles ever since. This has now changed as the Dodgers declined his $14M option for 2015, choosing to pay the $3M buyout instead...

Los Angeles Dodgers sign two former A’s pitchers

Well, next year's team is going to be a lot different from this year's. After the season ended, the Dodgers had a fairly long list of free agents and team options, none of whom they chose to pursue very hard.Hanley Ramirez obviously, but also Jamey Wright, Roberto Hernandez, Chad Billingsley, Kevin Correia, Paul Maholm, Chris Perez, Scott Elbert and Stephen Fife all walked...

Brandon McCarthy Photoshops Twitter Avatar After Signing With Dodgers (Photo)

Brandon McCarthy is a better pitcher then he is an artist. The free-agent pitcher reportedly agreed to a four-year, $48 million deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers that was finalized Monday, ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports, citing league sources. But that left his Twitter avatar in a weird spot.

Have the Winter Meeting Moves Made the Los Angeles Dodgers Better?

Baseball’s Winter Meetings were held in San Diego this year. But it was another California city that stole the show.

Be very afraid of the revamped Los Angeles Dodgers

Just when we had gotten use to the new Los Angeles Dodgers and their bottomless, oft-used wallet, they’ve gone and changed it up once again. There was once a time where the Dodgers couldn’t say no to an expensive veteran and could give a contract extension to just about anyone on the roster. They were a good team, but not the elite team many had thought they could become. But...

Los Angeles Dodgers trade Matt Kemp

I remember when my whole family used to be as obsessed with the Los Angeles Dodgers as I am today. That ended in 1998, when the Dodgers traded Mike Piazza. I was only seven and a half when the trade went down, so I couldn’t really comprehend it. All I knew was the Dodgers were losing an awesome catcher and the guy that hit the ball really far. My parents were heartbroken, especially...
