Dodgers Roll Over in San Francisco, Vin Scully Honored Throughout Game

Vin Scully
October 2, 2016

The results today didn’t matter and the Dodgers certainly played like the results didn’t matter. On Vin Scully’s final day the Dodgers did not give him the win that he deserved. The Dodgers had already decided that these final week of games are worthless and not important. So they played like that. The proof is obvious since the club has won just once since clinching the division on the last…

Ladodgerreport Reader Appreciation Day

Vin Scully
October 2, 2016

Today marks the final game of the regular season between the Dodgers and the Giants and also marks the final game of Vin Scully’s brilliant career. We’re witnessing the end of an era and it’s sad. Dodger baseball may never be the same and I think I can speak for everyone when I say that all I want to hear today is the sound of Vin’s beautiful dulcet voice one…

Giants: 3 Dodgers: 0 The Dodgers Couldn’t Hit Ty Blach

October 1, 2016

Vin Scully only has one more game to call in his professional career, and he was the only reason to keep watching this game. He called a better game than the Dodgers played, as the team blew a chance to knock the Giants out of playoff position, losing 3-0 to, that’s right, another lefty *drink*. Clayton Kershaw was, playoff good? I guess that is a decent way to describe it,…

Favorable Pitching Match-up For Dodgers in Game 2

Clayton Kershaw
October 1, 2016

My god Brandon McCarthy is bad. The Dodger’s “experiment” of using the tall veteran right hander as a reliever failed miserably in Friday evening’s 9-3 loss to the Giants in the opening game of the final three game series. McCarthy allowed 6 runs and was unable to retire a single batter and provided more proof why he should not be anywhere near the Dodger’s postseason roster. Honestly the guy should do…

McCarthy Experiment Implodes, Takes Dodgers Down As Well. Giants Win 9-3

September 30, 2016

It’s the final series of the 2016 campaign, pitting the NL West Champion Dodgers against the wildcard-seeking Giants. “Don’t look at me” Madison Bumgarner was also seeking his 100th career win. It was the rematch of Puig vs Bum. And Vin Scully was in the house! 1st inning Three straight hits for the Dodgers, by Justin Turner, Corey Seager , and Yasiel Puig led to an early Dodgers lead. Puig vs…

It’s Time For Revenge! Dodgers Look To Eliminate Giants in Final Series

Dodgers-Giants
September 30, 2016

The Dodgers finally awoke from their post clinch malaise to beat the Padres 9-4 in the series finale on Thursday evening to avoid what would have been an embarrassing sweep. Julio Urias was hooked after just 3 innings but the offense came through with nine runs battering opposing starter Christian Friedrich. The bullpen took things the rest of the way as has been the customary script this season. Now the Dodgers…

Dodgers Snap Out Of Post-Clinch Trance, Pummel SD 9-4

September 29, 2016

The Washington Nationals have all but sewn up home-field advantage for the first round of the playoffs against the Dodgers. At this point, pretty much the last things remaining for the Dodgers to do to close out the 2016 season are, 1. to not get swept by the Padres 2. bury the second place Giants once and for all,  and 3. to tune-up for the playoffs, all while staying healthy….

Only Urias Can Save The Dodgers From an Embarrassing Sweep

Dave Roberts
September 29, 2016

The Dodgers are on the verge of being swept by the lowly Padres and only rookie phenom Julio Urias stands in the way from keeping the club from suffering such an embarrassment. These final few games may seem meaningless after the club clinched the NL West title, but they are still playing for home field advantage in the NLDS against Washington. Right now the Dodgers are 2 games back with…

Dodgers Topped Again By Renfroe And Padres, Lose 6-5

September 28, 2016

The Dodgers dropped to two games behind the Nationals in the fight for home-field advantage in the playoffs after losing last night, with the number of chances to gain ground dwindling. Tonight it was Jose De Leon‘s chance to bring the Dodgers closer to their final goal of the regular season. 1st inning My personal choice for the Dodgers’ MVP of 2016, Chase Utley, homered to begin the game. 1-0 With…

Jose De Leon Takes The Hill Against The Padres For Real This Time

September 28, 2016

The post clinch celebration hangover hit the Dodgers hard yesterday as they suffered a 7-1 loss in the opening game against the Padres. That’s probably to be expected. Other than home field advantage in the NLDS these games are pretty meaningless for them. Of course as I was on my return flight home the Dodgers made a late change and decided to push Jose De Leon back to tonight and started…

Dodgers Hit One Little Homer, Padres Hit Two Big Ones

September 27, 2016

As much as some of us may have wanted the season to end on the dramatic, division-clinching note from Sunday’s game at Dodger Stadium, there remains a weeks worth of baseball left to play.  The Dodgers traveled to San Diego and opened a three-game series against the Padres, with Kenta Maeda taking the mound for game one. 1st inning Kenta Maeda had a rough first inning, capped off by a…

Dodgers Open Final Trip in San Diego, De Leon Counters Clemens

Jose De Leon
September 27, 2016

The Dodgers embark on their final road trip of the season after completing one of the most emotional home stands of recent memory. The home stand included the clinching of their fourth consecutive NL West division title and a heartfelt tribute and farewell to Vin Scully. Everyone paid tribute to the legendary announcer including long time Spanish radio announcer Jaime Jarrin. The Dodgers won 5 out of the six games on the home…

What I Miss?

Dodgers Clinch
September 25, 2016

As I’ve said before, sometimes life gets in the way of Dodger baseball. As I sit here and write this article I am in beautiful Cancun, Mexico with my beautiful girlfriend. I’ve had a wonderful and emotional vacation. I’ve also missed a lot of Dodger baseball this past week. Thankfully my amazing writers have picked up the slack. I can’t thank them enough. Those guys have not missed a beat…

DODGERS: 4 ROCKIES: 3 diVINsion winners

September 25, 2016

I don’t think there are words to describe what happened early this morning for baseball. Being a person of Cuban descent, the impact that Jose Fernandez had as a baseball player on me cannot be described. I have never experienced a communal experience through my roots outside of baseball, and Jose Fernandez/Yasiel Puig finishing 1/2 in the 2013 rookie of the year voting. There was so much promise there, the comparisons were…

Dodgers: Lots Rockies: Nots, One More

September 24, 2016

The Dodgers drubbed the Rockies Saturday night, lowering their magic number to 1, almost ensuring that their plight to 90 wins will be successful, and with that comes a 4th straight division title. What. A. Night. Scully’s penultimate game at Dodger stadium was a success for the team as they beat an overmatched Rockies squad 14-1, they didn’t clinch only because the Giants mounted an extra innings comeback against the…
