Is AAA/OKC where Dodger outfielders go to die?

Normally when a proven major league outfielder struggles and gets sent to AAA they blow back up and are quickly promoted back to the major leagues. Case in point Keon Broxton of the Brewers was their starting CF for most of the season. In an extended slump, Broxton was sent to AAA on July 21st …

Hello to Yu and goodbye to you

The Dodgers made the big splash at the last second to save what had been a very disappointing trade deadline day. Until 12:59:05 Dodger fans were trying to reconcile with the idea that the biggest moves the Dodgers had made were to bring in Tony Cingrani and Tony Watson.  All that changed when this tweet …

Bellinger and the LAD multiple HR multiple position list

Eric Stephen put together a nice list of the exploits by Cody Bellinger based on what he had done in his first eleven career games.

Tigers could really use an outfielder

Watching the Tiger/White Sox game I can’t help but feel the Dodgers have a plethora of outfielders better than what the Tigers are using in CF and LF.  JD Martinez is hurt but Tiger fans must be hurt knowing that they have to turn to Mikie Mahtook as their starting RF while JD is on …

Cody Bellinger – Sooner or later?

The general feeling is that Cody Bellinger is blocked and won’t see much major league action in 2017. Not everyone agreed with this. Is he really blocked?
