Tim Dierkes of MLBTradeRumors.com reported Monday that the minimum service time to be considered a “Super 2” player in 2014 is two years, 133 days. At two years, 154 days, Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon is projected to make the cut.
What does that mean, and who should care?
This is funny. From San Francisco Giants beat writer Alex Pavlovic on MercuryNews.com:
After seeing Jake Peavy’s quotes last night, Dee Gordon had a teammate take a picture of him standing in the clubhouse wearing just a towel and shower shoes, holding a big bottle of shampoo. He texted it to Peavy, who loved the back-and-forth. Should be a fun first at-bat next Monday.

SAN FRANCISCO >> Dee Gordon didn’t look like himself walking around the visitors’ clubhouse Friday. His head was mostly down, the hood on his sweatshirt mostly up.
Gordon wasn’t in the starting lineup for Friday’s game against Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner, which prompted a question about whether or not the Dodgers’ second baseman was healthy or not.
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Gordon is fine health-wise; that’s not the problem.
“He was mad,” Mattingly said.
