Dodgers 3, Braves 2: Welcome Back, Matt Kemp

Here’s a thing I’m not sure I’ve ever seen before: one player taking two bases on an infield grounder more than once in a single game. I don’t know how to look that sort of thing up; I don’t know if it can be looked up, and either way, it’s sort of like an RBI or a triple play, in that it’s not just about the player, it’s about being in fortunate enough circumstances...

MLB Trade Rumors: Los Angeles Dodgers Looking for Relief Help

The Los Angeles Dodgers have reportedly backed off their pursuit of a starting pitcher and are looking for relief help instead. Of course, there’s a good reason to take any statements about a team’s plans with a grain of salt at this time of year. However, the Dodgers would benefit more from adding a good reliever or two than from adding a big name in their rotation. As things...

Matt Kemp’s Offense Is Not The Problem

There is no player more polarizing on the Dodgers than Matt Kemp. Recently, as Kemp trade rumors have (predictably) started to get louder, there have been a large variety of reactions. There’s one thing that comes up frequently in our comment section, on twitter, and around the internet which I want to address, though. You can say all you want about Kemp’s defense, but Matt Kemp’s offense...

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.
