REST IN BLUE HEAVEN TOMMY LASORDA

Last year when I heard that Tommy had fallen sick and had been hospitalized, I immediately set out to do a piece on his life as a professional baseball player. I did all the research and was ready to go but thought twice about it because I thought it would not be okay to takeContinue reading “REST IN BLUE HEAVEN TOMMY LASORDA”

Padres Making a Push in the NL West

There is no doubt that the San Diego Padres have become formidable playoff contenders with the addition of Yu Darvish and Blake Snell to the starting pitching rotation. However, let’s be honest. If 2020 would have not had that extra playoff spot and if the season had been 162 games, the Padres would not haveContinue reading “Padres Making a Push in the NL West”

Quiet Week in Dodger Baseball

Tim Federowicz was signed by the Dodgers to a minor league contract. Interesting part about this is that maybe the Dodgers are planning to move one of their back up catchers and they need Tim to be ready to fill in on an as needed basis.

Cal Ripken Jr., A-Rod, Chipper Jones, Miguel Cabrera and Corey Seager

Our third base solution might come from within our ranks. We have a solid player in Corey Seager and perhaps Corey will make a better third baseman for the Dodgers than he makes as a shortstop. I know how upset this might sound for Corey Seager fans but I will argue that he might beContinue reading “Cal Ripken Jr., A-Rod, Chipper Jones, Miguel Cabrera and Corey Seager”

Ken Rosenthal wants to trade away Seager?

Ken Rosenthal’s latest idea in trading Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story for Corey Seager and Joe Kelly is a horrible idea. Unless of course he is friends with Scott Boras or Corey Seager and knows something that we do not know. He is known as a  “baseball insider” so he might have some inside scoop.Continue reading “Ken Rosenthal wants to trade away Seager?”
