Say A Prayer for The Remnants Of That 2014 Dodger Bullpen

Remember last year? When the Dodgers had “too many closers” and an overwhelming amount of veteran presence and all that, in what was the most expensive bullpen ever assembled? And then, for the most part, it was awful? The new front office cut most of those guys loose. For the ones who found a home…

What’s The Upside Of Keeping Chris Perez?

Here’s a secret about Chris Perez: He was never that good in the first place. You might think he once was, and it’s understandable why he’d have that reputation. He made the All-Star Game, twice. He saved 23 or more games four seasons in a row, topping out at 36 and 39. He once had…

Is There Any Hope For Chris Perez Or Brandon League?

The Dodgers have been relatively quiet this offseason, except in the bullpen. The most confusing signing of the bunch was that of Chris Perez, which doubled their number of “closers who lost their job last season because they were awful.” Brandon League also fits into that category, and probably isn’t going anywhere since he’s still owed 15…
