Whicker: Dodger fans shouldn’t panic, but they also shouldn’t lose the button

LOS ANGELES — You can say great teams don’t get hurt.  More accurately, hurt teams don’t get great. The world champion San Francisco Giants of 2014 got through the season with minimal bruising. Brandon Belt missed 50 games with a broken thumb and had two other disabled-list appearances. Pitcher Matt Cain had three sabbaticals, and outfielder Angel Pagan’s back betrayed him. Otherwise, they were pretty much clean. The world champion Chicago Cubs of 2016 barely needed a tongue depressor, much less...

Fantasy Baseball: Older players are being undervalued on draft day

Moneyball wasn’t just the 2011 Brad Pitt movie about loving on-base percentage and hating scouts. The film was based on the Michael Lewis book of the same title in which the small-market Oakland Athletics were forced to find players undervalued by general managers still viewing the game through an 20th century lens. It just so happened that at the time, it was OBP and slugging percentage and how much they were behind winning baseball games that front offices hadn’t recognized. Now that the saber...

Andrelton Simmons, Martin Maldonado snag Gold Gloves for Angels

Defensive strength up the middle, which has been a focus of Angels general manager Billy Eppler, has now yielded two Gold Gloves. Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons and catcher Martin Maldonado each won Gold Gloves when the awards were announced on Tuesday night. Simmons’ honor was not a surprise, since he’d won twice in the National League, but Maldonado unseated four-time winner Sal Perez to win the award in his first year in a new league. The other two Angels who were finalists for the Gold G...
