MLB LAD Pipeline top thirty breakdown

MLB pipeline released their top 30 Dodger prospects for 2019 a few days ago, and as we have done in the past we break it down. In 2018 Walker Buehler was head of the class and is now the hurler expected to lead the Dodger rotation into 2019. Alex Verdugo is now considered the top …

2019 MLB Awards?

MLB just put out what they considered the player from each that was most likely to win a 2019 Award. You know, the Cy Young Award, the MVP, and the Rookie of the Year. I’m sure for the last eight years they have picked a pitcher off of the Dodgers to win the Cy Young …

Fab Five Dodgers

This is two days too late to properly asses how much Yasiel Puig was beloved by Dodger fans but it is something I wanted to do this week.  Back in February of 2010 Michael White wrote for TrueBlueLA and did a fab five edition in which each of the regulars or even the semi-regulars commentators …

From 16 – 26 to Fenway

Many fans panicked back in May when the Dodgers were 16 – 26 and things looked bleak. I didn’t because I don’t understand the point of panic, of losing hope, of giving up. These aren’t just empty words as I bask in the Dodgers headed back to the World Series, I write these ideas down …

A year ago………

Watching the Dodgers win their 3rd straight division series led by the likes of Max Muncy, Pedro Baez, Yazmani Grandal, David Freeze, and Manny Machado I couldn’t help but wonder at how much everything stays the same, and how it all changes from one year to the next. At this time a year ago Max …

Caleb Ferguson is pitching like 2016 Andrew Miller

A bullpen ebbs and flows all season, one moment a Daniel Hudson is handling the class five rapids with aplomb, the next moment he can’t even navigate a simple class one. When one stumbles another takes his place so it is rare that a bullpen has everyone firing on all cylinders and the Dodgers are …

The mid-season MLB Pipeline top 30 prospect list came out today and as was expected, several notable prospects were on the move up, while others were on the move down. The February edition of the MLB Dodger top 30 pipeline looked like this. Many prospects from the Pipeline Pre-2018 are gone from the list for …
