The Dodgers have walked a pretty interesting line lately, keeping an ultra-competitive big-league program while consistently having a solid farm system, too. While they’ve flexed their financial muscle by signing Freddie Freeman and trading for (and then extending) Mookie Betts, their ballclub has consistently included trash-bin pickups like Justin Turner, Chris Taylor, Max Muncy and others along with homegrown contributors like Clayton Kershaw, Julio Urias, Tony Gonsolin, Dustin May, Will Smith, Gavin Lux, Cody Bellinger, Corey Seager, and Joc Pederson. In order to keep those homegrown contr ..read more

The business of professional sports is brutal. The Dodgers were dealt the brunt force of it all during this off-season and shifting towards the new generation of baseball in LA. It’s never easy to lose teammates, but it’s even harder to lose long-time friends that you’ve gone to battle with over the years. Among the names for Chris Taylor include Cody Bellinger and Justin Turner, a pair of the longest tenured players from the team that found new homes this offseason. All three went through a trial of fire together before finally reaching the World Series summit in 2020. Memories good enough t ..read more

Dodgers: Justin Turner Talks About His Post Playing Career
Dodgers Nation
by Jeff Snider
2d ago
One of the most heartbreaking things about this Dodgers offseason has been the departure of Justin Turner to the Red Sox. JT spent nine years in Dodger blue and felt like he should have stayed in LA the rest of his career, but that didn’t work out, and he’ll spend the next year or two in Boston. But Turner still has ties to Los Angeles, and he was back in town recently for an LA Dream Center Foundation event. While he was around, he talked with local radio about a variety of topics. One of those topics was his life after baseball, whenever that comes. JT was asked if he’d like to stay in base ..read more

Max Muncy was drafted by the A’s in 2012 and debuted with Oakland three years later. But he didn’t come into his own until he came to the Dodgers, spending a very productive season in Triple-A in 2017 before bursting onto the big-league scene in 2018. While Muncy hasn’t quite followed the Clayton Kershaw path of becoming a star for the team that drafted him and remaining there his entire career, he’s happy in Los Angeles. And as he told Dodgers Nation recently, now that he’s found his place in LA, he hopes to stay forever. “I’m really hoping eventually I can retire as a Dodger. Obviously my ..read more
