Tweet While Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp is among the better players in Major League Baseball on the field, he’s also one of the best away from it. In the wake of the deadly tornadoes that recently hit Oklahoma Kemp offered his support to help those who were affected and assist in [...]
With the Dodgers in last place and Yasiel Puig on fire in Double-A, pressure to call up the Cuban outfielder is building. In his last ten games, the 22-year-old has posted a .395/.465/.658 slash line, including seven extra base hits and six steals. Healthy and productive, Puig is once again knocking on the door to Los Angeles.
Earlier in the week, Dave Cameron discussed Andre Ethier...
The Dodgers have a propensity for drafting players who are athletic and two-way guys. Darren Dreifort was one of the more notable ones, when the team made him the No. 2 draft pick in the 1993 MLB Draft. While most viewed him as a pitcher, the guy could hit.
James Loney was viewed by many as a pitching prospect in 2002. The Dodgers made him a first baseman. Ethan Martin was...
It may have been an accident, but Matt Kemp didn't do a whole lot to endear himself to home plate umpire Wally Bell on May 21.

Are Evelyn Lozada and Carl Crawford dating? That’s the rumor. Hip Hollywood reported this week that sources and eyewitnesses told them the reality TV star and ex-wife of Chad Johnson is dating the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder. They also say Lozada was in New York last month at the same time as the Dodgers. Bossip countered the report, saying Lozada was in New York at that time...
Yesterday, Don Mattingly had what I call a “Wu-Tang moment”, inspired by the “When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong” skit on Chappelle’s Show.
Humorous? Yes, but what it mean to me is that Mattingly basically dropped all the fronts and simply went in on the Dodgers players and front office in surprisingly pointed comments.
“We’re in last place in the National League West...
Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly has been sharply critical of his slumping team.
For at least one day, everything was all right with the embattled Dodgers.
Carl Crawford and Scott Van Slyke drove in two runs each and Ramon Hernandez hit his first home run in the Dodgers' 9-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday.
Even after the win, the Dodgers are last in the NL West...

Tuesday, the NBA Clippers canned coach Vinnie Del Negro in spite of him having won the Pacific Division title. The UCLA Bruins basketball team kicked out coach Ben Howland...
All winter, there were rumors that the Dodgers were open to trading Andre Ethier. All winter, the Dodgers declared that there was nothing to those rumors, and that they weren’t having second thoughts about the five year, $85 million contract they gave him last June. When spring training rolled around and Cuban import Yasiel Puig became The Hot New Thing, those rumors picked up...
Embattled Dodgers manager Don Mattingly pulled starting right fielder Andre Ethier from Wednesday's lineup and his explanation for why he did was intriguing.
Just two days ago, I wrote on Yahoo! Sports that Don Mattingly shouldn't yet be fired. Today, I may have changed my tune.
Just in front of Wednesday's matinee series finale with the Brewers, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register brought us these comments from the soon-to-be-former Dodger manager.
"Must-read strong comments from #Dodgers mgr Don Mattingly...
The ugly side of twitter reared its head in light of Matt Kemp’s pledge to donate $1,000 to his hometown of Oklahoma City for every homerun he hits now until All-Star break.
Firstly, far be it for anyone to knock someone who donates any of their hard earned money to a greater cause. Was Kemp’s approach flawed? Yes, when you take into account his massive contract and the fact...
In the wake of the tragic events where a mile-wide tornado hit an Oklahoma suburb damaging neighborhoods, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder and Oklahoma native Matt Kemp is doing his part to help out the victims.
Following the 3-1 Dodgers win over the Brewers on Monday, Kemp tweeted that he will donate 1000 to the victims for every home run he hit from now until the All-Star break...
John Ely burst onto the scene with the Dodgers in 2010. The
team had acquired him and Jon Link from the White Sox for Juan Pierre. Elymania
spawned and lasted for longer than anyone could have expected. But it ended
seemingly as quickly as it began.
Fast forward nearly three years. Ely was coming off of a
masterful performance in the Pacific Coast League in 2012. He...
