Blake Snell to the Dodgers is a very intriguing match

Blake Snell has done enough work dominating the Dodgers in his career, bolstering a 2.54 ERA across 16 starts against Los Angeles, including the postseason. Now it may be time for him to join Chavez Ravine’s home dugout and dominate here on a regular basis.

The Dodgers already showed their interest in the top end of the pitching market, reportedly making a $165 million offer to Aaron Nola, who...

The Mariners narrowly missed the playoffs, but the second baseman with a 35 wRC+ they released in August ended up playing in all three postseason games for the Dodgers in 2023. This was a trying year for Kolten Wong, though one that ended on an uptick.

After two solid years with the Brewers, Wong had his option picked up by Milwaukee last November and was traded to Seattle in December. Things just never worked out with the Mariners for Wong, who hit...

The many lawsuits arising as a result of Dodger Stadium security

At the literal beginning of the 2023 season at Dodger Stadium, there was an incident involving Mr. Ricardo Juarez of Riverside, California. As you may or may not recall, he went onto the field of play to propose to his fiancée during the game.

It did not go well, as a member of Dodger Stadium Security leveled Mr. Juarez who was stationary and kneeling at the time. This current essay is...

1-year, $900,000 pact

Kolarek’s deal is worth $900,000, and it’s a major league contract for the left-hander who will turn 35 years old in January. He signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers last...

Lynn went 13-11 while allowing the most home runs in baseball

Lance Lynn began the 2023 season with the Chicago White Sox and mired in the worst season of his career before being traded to the Dodgers, where his struggles remained.

Lynn was coming off a down season in 2022, where he registered a slightly below league-average ERA+ with his ERA inflating over a run in seven less starts compared to the year prior. Lynn had a strong first...

The Dodgers will enter the winter meetings next week with the intentions of signing reigning AL MVP Shohei Ohtani among other priorities.

Jeff Passan of ESPN already reported that the Dodgers, Rangers, and Red Sox are all among Ohtani’s top landing destinations, and the free agent will more than likely begin to hold private meetings around the same time as the Winter Meetings. Passan also notes that teams who divulge any inside...

Eddys Leonard began 2023 as a Dodgers shortstop in Double-A Tulsa and ended it playing several positions in Triple-A Toledo as a member of the Tigers organization.

Leonard and fellow then-High-A middle infielder Jorbit Vivas were aggressive additions to the Dodgers’ 40-man roster in November 2021, to avoid potentially losing them in a Rule 5 Draft that never came, though nobody knew the draft would be canceled (a casualty of...
