Why Cody Bellinger Moves From 1B

August 19, 2017

There is no right answer here.  But, the fact of the matter is that no rookie in the history of baseball has matched what one Cody Bellinger has done in less than 100 games!  Cody Bellinger has 34 home runs in 97 games and is likely the best 1B in all of baseball. He’s fast, he’s gifted and he’s a Future Hall-of-Famer (I guarantee it or your money back).  Mike…

Just Another Middle Infield Prospect – Errol Robinson

August 5, 2017

Last Monday when the Dodgers acquired Yu Darvish, Tony Watson, and Tony Cingrani, the Dodgers traded four players from their top 30 prospect list; Willie Calhoun, Brendon Davis, AJ Alexy, and Oneil Cruz.  That opened the door for four new members of the Dodgers top 30.  Jacob Rhame returned to the top 30 and #is now listed at #28.  Three new members of the top 30 are: #27         Cristian Santana…

It’s All About Chemistry!

July 1, 2017

I keep reading that the Dodgers are in the hunt for a starting pitcher and frankly, I do not believe it.  What I mean by that is I do not think they are “hell-bent-for-leather” to get another starter.  That’s not saying that they won’t do it if the right situation presents itself, but they are simply not going to overpay to get another starter.  I think AC said the same…

State of the Dodgers – Halfway to a World Series

June 30, 2017

Thursday night’s game was the official half way point in the season. So I thought it was an opportune time to look at what is right, or what is wrong, what can be fixed, or what doesn’t need fixing.  With Thursday night’s win, the Dodgers are 53-28.  That is a projected win total of 106.  They will win 94 even if they go 41-40 the rest of the way.  The…

The Alex Wood Dilemma

May 2, 2017

Andrew Miller is a 6’7” left hander from Gainesville, FL and attended University of North Carolina. He was drafted in the first round by the Detroit Tigers in 2006.  Miller was called up later that year and made his ML debut on August 30, 2006.  From 2007-2010, he bounced up and down from the MiLB to MLB (Det/Fla).  While he did have some very good starts, he never established himself…

Minor League Report – April 7

April 8, 2017

I started this on Friday, and was not able to make it through the Rancho Cucumonga Quakes Game 2, so I am a little tardy with this one.  Friday was just not a good day for Dodger baseball. The ML team still cannot hit lefties, and the 4 minor league teams also went down to defeat. Except Rancho (RC) came up big in Game 2 of their DH. AAA –…

OKC ROTATION THOUGHTS

March 25, 2017

PeterJ asked what I thought the OKC rotation might be.  I have been playing with that for about a week, so I thought I might step out and draw some conclusions.  Just like LA, OKC is still a work in progress.  Whichever LHSP does not make LA rotation will probably go down to OKC.  Both Wood and Ryu are pitching well, but only one is going to make the rotation. …
