Naughty and nice

The Dodger front office had a lot more nice than naughty in calendar 2017 but let’s give a brief rundown of a subjective review of Dodger front office actions. Naughty – asking outfielder Brett Eibner to pitch and then releasing him outright after he blew out his arm. Nice – giving a Sept callup to O`Koyea …

Locastro gets to say hi

The LAD front office continued their generous ways by bringing up Tim Locastro for a taste of the major leagues in this final weekend.  There isn’t any need for the minor league middle infielder given the Dodgers have Seager, Forsythe, Chase, Barnes, Hernandez, Taylor, and Culberson who can play either 2nd or SS but maybe …

Dodgers reward Brett Eibner

Dodgers send down five

Dodgers sent two of their top prospects along with three other players from major league camp to minor league camp and each of them could be back at some point. Alex Verdugo –  Verdugo played for Mexico in the WBC and while playing RF could have made the catch that kept Mexico in the tournament …

Segedin and Dickson fighting for relevance

Two players generally acknowledged as long shots to make the 2017 Dodger roster, are doing their best to make it harder for the Dodger brass to ignore them when it comes to making the hard decisions. Making it even harder for the duo is that they both are fighting for the same spot. That current …
