Dodgers Give The Ball to Scott Kazmir to Keep The Good Times Rolling

The Dodgers win the World Series! The Dodgers win the World Series! In an opening day that has been improbable, the impossible has happened! Ok, ok, I am joking, but opening day is such an important day that it’s not that far from the truth. People make way too much of opening day results then they should. Remember it’s only one game, and while it’s always nice to win on…

Dodgers Clobber Padres, Win Everything

Welp everybody the Dodgers have done it. They’ve defeated the Padres on opening day and won the World Series. Thanks to the benefit of their perfect record and 1.000 winning percentage. Of course I joke. There is a lot more work to be done here. It’s always nice to win the first game though. The Dodgers did that and then some with an epic 15-0 victory on opening day. The…

As far as big days go, my birthday is pretty special. New Years Eve is exciting, and Christmas is pretty great. But nothing touches that feeling I get when Opening Day finally rolls around. The start of another summer full of ups – and some downs – with my life’s team, the Dodgers, is indescribable. Some kids stay up all night, listening for the sounds of Santa’s reindeer on the…

Dodgers Announce 25-man Opening Day Roster

The Dodgers have announced their 25-man opening roster for the 2016 season. The will have eight players on the disabled list to begin the season. As I predicted Charlie Culberson makes the roster. Louis Coleman does as well. The Dodgers are going with just one left hander in the bullpen. Tracye Thompson makes the roster as well. He should get some playing time with the injury to Andre Ethier. No…

Freeway Series

Dodgers Swept by Angels, Look Terrible

These games don’t count. That’s what we gotta keep telling ourselves after the Dodgers lost the finale of the Freeway series to the Angels by an 8-1 score. The Dodgers were easily swept and looked pathetic.  Alex Wood got bombed, and the club only scored one run again. It’s almost as if we never left 2015. You know I want to give Alex Wood a chance, and trust me I…

Surprise! Dodgers Announce Ross Stripling as The Fifth Starter

Surprise! The Dodgers shocked everyone by announcing that they will be giving the fifth starter spot to rookie right hander Ross Stripling. This is not an april fool’s joke either. With Mike Bolsinger on the shelf battling an oblique injury and Brett Anderson more useless than ever, the Dodgers were expected to probably give the fifth starter job to right hander Carlos Frias, or Zach Lee. I guess the Dodgers didn’t have…

Did the Dodgers Poison Their Relationship with Kenley Jansen?

When the ninth inning rolls around in a tight game, and the Dodgers need someone to come in, save the game, and nail down the win, who does the Dodger Nation want to see take the mound? Fans from every corner of Chavez Ravine will surely shout, “Kenley Jansen!”, in unison. Unfortunately, this may be the last year that Jansen will be that ninth inning hero in blue, as Thursday…

Here are a few notes and thoughts from Game One of the Freeway Series between your Los Angeles Dodgers and the Southern California, Orange County, Off the 57 Freeway, Angels of Anaheim.

The Dodgers Need Another Left handed Reliever

It’s almost time for the Dodgers to construct the bullpen for opening day. With just a week remaining until the regular season kicks off, the Dodgers have to make the annual roster decisions. With the all of the injuries and focus on the starting rotation, few people have been looking at the bullpen. We all know that the bullpen has been a weakness for the Dodgers for the last several…

Jamey Wright Calls it Quits

There comes a time when every player must make the painful decision to hang up their glove. From what I’ve heard this is the most difficult part of a player’s career. That time has finally come for veteran Jamey Wright. The 41-year right hander who has pitched in 19 major league seasons announced his retirement on Monday. The Dodgers told him that he would not be making the opening day…
