TBLA Sunday morning links: July 7, 2019

Have a lovely Sunday, TBLA readers!

MLB: San Diego Padres at Los Angeles Dodgers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Dodgers news ...

Unfortunately the Dodgers lost their second game in a row to the Padres. You can read the TBLA game recap here.

Andy McCullough of the LA Times wrote about the one that got away from the Dodgers. Yordy Alvarez. Sigh.

“The Dodgers agreed to trade him for Fields. They have watched from afar as Alvarez has blossomed into a 6-foot-5, 225-pound force. Fields was cut by the Dodgers this spring after 2 1/2 seasons.” wrote an article on why you should root for Joc Pederson in the home run derby. It’s very convincing.

Around the league ...
