With the Major League Baseball season ending and the Los Angeles Dodgers having to watch as their biggest rival the San Francisco Giants win the World Series, the team knew they would need to make some major upgrades in the offseason. That first upgrade came via the free agent route as the Dodgers signed pitcher Zack Greinke to a six year $147 Million deal.

Greinke is a former Cy Young winner who will be trading in his Los Angeles Angels red for Dodger blue this season.
Greinke was acquired by the Angels last season from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for Jean Segura and a pair of minor leaguers.
The Dodgers will now have two former Cy Young winners on their staff as they will have Greinke and staff ace Clayton Kershaw taking the hill for them.
The Dodgers offseason is not complete however as it is expected they will continue to try and lure several more free agent pitchers to Dodger-town.

The Los Angeles Dodgers last second hail mary came up short as they lost the the San Francisco Giants Monday night by a score of 4-3.
With the Dodgers trailing by a run in the ninth inning, the Dodgers got a leadoff runner as Andre Ethier was hit by a pitch. Dee Gordon eventually ran for Ethier and stole second base to give the Dodgers a man in scoring position. However with two outs Mark Ellis failed to come through as he hit a line drive to center field that found the defenders glove ending the game and the Dodgers chance to make the playoffs.
The Dodgers had several miscues in the game that can be looked at as the reason they lost the game, however ultimately there are always the would have, could have, and should haves but you can’t change what happened.
In the fifth inning Don Mattingly intentionally walked Angel Pagan with a man at second with two outs to face Marco Scutaro. Scutaro then doubled home both runner to give the Giants a 4-3 lead. In the eight inning Mark Ellis hit a one out double but instead of stopping at second he tried turning it into a trip and was thrown out going for third base. Shane Victorino followed Ellis’ at bat with a triple down the line that could have tied the game for the Dodgers.Read more... Join the Conversation...
