Andrelton Simmons and value to the Dodgers

Jonah Keri dropped the first bomb of the offseason on Wednesday night by tweeting about the Braves having trade talks with an NL West team revolving around Andrelton Simmons. Naturally, Twitter blew up. The Giants have been ruled out, which makes sense. But, all four other teams in the division could be logical landing spots…

What to do with Corey Seager this month

The first round of September call-ups will happen later today (officially). A player, rightly, not in the group is Corey Seager. Last week, I looked at Julio Urias (and others) as potential September call-ups. Now, I’m looking at the possibility of Seager being recalled.

How Dodgers’ hitters and pitchers fared ‘After 0-2’

I was listening to a recent episode of Effectively Wild, (Baseball Prospectus podcast), and one topic being discussed was the “After 0-2” split. Sam Miller brought it up and focused on the pitchers, but I’m even more fascinated how the Dodgers’ hitters fared after they got down 0-2. Let’s be clear: These stat lines aren’t…
