So, that huge Matt Kemp trade between the Dodgers and Padres? Yeah…it might not happen. The typically symbolic physical may actually present a huge problem for the Padres, because it’s revealed that Kemp has arthritis in both of his hips.

What Happened In 2014: What didn’t happen in 2014? Coming off two mediocre, injury-plagued seasons, people had firmly began to turn on Matt Kemp and wonder if he was done.
Over at Dodgers Digest, we went from giving reason for optimism before the season, to defending his offensive value in May, to wondering if he would...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have designated 3 time all-star Brian Wilson for assignment this afternoon, as the Dodgers announced the move on Twitter:

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.

Dee Gordon had a career year for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2014. The son of former relief pitcher Tom “Flash” Gordon appeared in a career high 148 games — his previous career high was 87 — and drove in a career high 34 RBI’s and posted a solid .326 on base percentage.
He also led the league in triples (12) and stolen bases (64). For...

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...
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...
When the Los Angeles Dodgers traded Dan Haren to the Miami Marlins, I was concerned about the teams’ sense of humor.
Haren (@ithrow88) is a great follow on Twitter, despite only having 45 career tweets. His best, this one:

Last week, pitcher Brandon McCarthy signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers in a move that will net him $48 million over the next four years. McCarthy must have been incredibly excited about the prospect of wearing a Dodgers uniform. Instead of waiting, McCarthy decided to “photoshop” a picture of himself so that he’d be wearing

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 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.
McCarthy couldn’t keep up the image of him in a New York Yankees uniform, so he wasted...
On December 11, the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres agreed to a trade that will send Matt Kemp to the Padres.
The players involved in the deal, though have yet to take their mandatory physicals. Because of this, neither team has officially announced the deal.

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...
With a heavy heart Matt Kemp bid a bittersweet farewell to the Los Angeles Dodgers and the team’s fans in an emotionally charged post to his Instagram account.

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...
This isn’t one of those deals that came out of nowhere. The Padres have been rumored to be the most aggressive Matt Kemp suitor for a couple of weeks now, and all other interested parties seemingly dropped out as the asking price kept getting higher and higher. Over the last few days, this deal felt […]
If you’re a baseball fan and you spent any amount of time on Twitter on Wednesday night, then you probably spent as much time hyperventilating as the rest of us. A new Dodger front office that had spent its first few weeks stealthily upgrading around the fringes of the 40-man — guys like Joel Peralta, […]
Andrew Heaney was a Los Angeles Dodger for like four hours.
Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi was intent on not letting me watch Sons of Anarchy tonight, flipping Heaney from the Marlins to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in exchange for second baseman Howie Kendrick.

The Los Angeles Dodgers surely are a busy bunch during MLB’s winter meetings. Fresh off acquiring shortstop Jimmy Rollins from the Philadelphia Phillies, Los Angeles has sent second baseman Dee Gordon and starter Dan Haren to the Miami Marlins.

The Los Angeles Dodgers didn’t waste much time replacing Hanley Ramirez at shortstop. According to multiple reports, the defending NL West champions have acquired veteran Jimmy Rollins from the Philadelphia Phillies (via CSN Philly).
The interesting dynamic here is that Rollins waived his no-trade clause to go to the Dodgers. That has been a point of contention over the past couple...
