2019 Dodger Spring Training Stats – The Hitters

The 2019 spring training games are over so for fun, let’s take a look at the spring training stats. Dodgers did just about zero running this spring.  No one stole more than one base and when you look at the lineup you don’t see anyone who should have a green light unless it is Pollock. …

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 …

It is almost like Cody Bellinger wasn’t a valuable player in 2018

Trade talks are heating up and every Dodger outfielder is being discussed in deals to shore up area’s that evidently need shoring up. Even Cody Bellinger’s name has come up, which to me seems ridiculous given he should be as untouchable as Walker Buehler. Sure, Bellinger didn’t put up as insane a season as his …

Edwin Rios trying to make up for lost opportunity

By all rights, the call to Oklahoma for Max Muncy should have gone to Edwin Rios the 2016 Dodgers position prospect of the year.  The problem for Rios was that he wasn’t at Oklahoma to accept the call, instead, he was rehabbing in Arizona. Rios could only think of what could have been as Max …

How do you play your five hottest hitters when you only have four positions for them?

The Dodgers have four positions for five very hot hitters.  Matt Kemp has been here all along,  Max Muncy announced himself in mid – April, Yasiel Puig joined the party in Mid May,  Joc Pederson got the call last weekend, and Cody Bellinger showed up this week. The June numbers are ridiculous for these fab …

Baseball gravity pulls sophomore slugging 1st baseman back to earth

Last year witnessed not one, not two, but three first baseman who broke all sorts of home runs records even though none of them started the season in the major leagues.  The first up was Dodger phenom Cody Bellinger who started his first game on April 25th and proceeded to light up the NL and …
