Logan's Run...ning to Padres

Logan's Run...ning to Padres

Looks like Andrew Friedman now has quite a "renewal! renewal!" on his hands, now that Logan White has left the Dodgers for the Padres: LOS ANGELES -- The San Diego Padres have hired longtime Dodgers amateur scouting director Logan White to their front office, sources told ESPN on Monday. The feeling around baseball when the Dodgers hired Andrew Friedman to be their president of baseball operations was that he would want to bring in his own people in key front-office positions. With White departing, he'll have at least three top positions to fill. It is not clear which position White will...

Sources: Manager Joe Maddon has exercised an opt-out clause in his contract and is leaving the Tampa Bay Rays immediately.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) October 24, 2014 But then... early word: maddon not considering LA an option at all. he understands friedman is committed to mattingly.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) October 24, 2014 And...

Joe Maddon Is Not Going To Dodgers, Is Expecting ’4-5 Legit Suitors’

Joe Maddon is no longer the manager of the Tampa Bay Rays. It will take a while for that to sink in especially because it appears that Maddon doesn’t have a job lined up. The obvious speculation at first was the Los Angeles Dodgers where Andrew Friedman recently became the […]

World Series Game 1 Thread: NL West 2nd Place Finishers @ AL Central 2nd Place Finishers, 5p

James Shields (0-0, -.--) vs. Ashley Madison (0-0, -.--) Whatever. Really, how are Dodger fans supposed to be motivated to watch the third Giants World Series appearance in five years? What, are we supposed to cheer for the team in blue with the inept manager because it feels familiar? I guess. Not really that strong a motivator, given how we know in our heart of hearts that the baseball gods hate us, hate joy of any kind, and will OF COURSE allow the Giants to squash the feel-good story of the Royals. At least if we don't watch, the streak of abysmal ratings for the Giants in the World...

Well, holy crap. The Dodgers will name former Tampa Bay Rays general manager Andrew Friedman as their new president of baseball operations, sources told ESPN— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) October 14, 2014 Ramona's got the full scoop HERE. To recap: Andrew Friedman is the new President of Baseball Operations. He can hire a new GM. Ned falls up, to become Stan's...something. Donnie likely staying.

Ryu Noodles Around

Ryu Noodles Around

Hyun-Jin Ryu's now-legendary Ottogi Noodle commercial, featuring "lookalikes" of some of his Dodger teammates, has been making the rounds EVERYWHERE in the Dodger community. It's only fitting we preserve it here at SoSG as well. The video is hilariously bizarre and deserving of all the attention. In addition to the video, friend-of-SoSG Sarah Wexler uncovered a link to some amazing behind-the-scenes photos of the commercial shoot.These photos reveal that both a Puig lookalike and a Uribe lookalike were hired for the shoot, but not used in the final commercial. Hopefully, we'll see these two...
