Dodgers Return To Andrew Friedman’s Old Stomping Grounds, Open All Turf Trip

Tropicana Field Scoreboard
May 3, 2016

The Dodgers open up a five game all turf road trip which kicks off tonight in Tampa Bay. That’s right the Dodgers will be coming back to Andrew Friedman’s old stomping grounds. This means he’ll be able to go back to his old office say hello to his old boss Stuart Sternberg and dust off his old computer to come up with some new algorithms. Boop….Beep…Boop….Beep….Boop…… Alright enough of that…

Why Can’t The Dodgers Hit At Home?

Yasmani Grandal
May 2, 2016

The Dodgers finally snapped their six game losing streak on Sunday afternoon with a 1-0 win over the Padres. It was nothing to feel good about, even though the team celebrated in the clubhouse like they had just won the seventh game of the World Series. After all the Dodgers scored just one measly run on three hits and it was driven in by Clayton Kershaw himself. The Dodgers have…

Your Friend The Dodgers Are Trying To Win Baseball Games

Clayton Kershaw
May 1, 2016

If the Dodgers play a home stand and never win a game, did it really happen? It’s been almost like a feverish nightmare. The Dodgers have played six games on this seven game home stand and have lost every game. This is their first six game losing streak since May of 2013. It’s gone beyond jokes or snark at this point. It’s now reached the point where it’s just sad…

Losing Is A Disease, Contagious Like Polio – And The Dodgers Have It

April 30, 2016

Coming into tonight, the Dodgers had dropped five games in a row, and were on the brink of dropping out of first place in the NL West. Yasiel Puig did not play, which wasn’t a bad move, considering Puig’s horrible at bats over the past few games. Adrian Gonzalez gets the benefit of the doubt, and he will continue playing through his slump, but it’s as glaring as any on…

Mediocre Dodgers Welcome Below Mediocre Padres

April 29, 2016

The internet is still abuzz over the hilariously shocking news of Dee Gordon’s 80-game suspension for testing positive for PEDs. Just imagine little Dee was juicing all along. The thought creeps into my head and almost makes me laugh out loud. Don’t let the funny news distract you from the terrible baseball the Dodgers have been playing. The club just got swept by former manager Don Mattingly and the Miami Marlins four straight. They’ve…

Dodgers Must Turn The Page For Game 3

Yasiel Puig
April 27, 2016

The Dodgers are going to have to pick themselves up from their bootstraps and forget about Tuesday night’s demoralizing meltdown loss to the Marlins. It’s a tough one to get over because it happened against Clayton Kershaw. Even the best of them have bad nights. Kershaw has been flawless before that stupid inning. Fortunately there’s always another game the next day in baseball. The real puzzler has been the lackluster offense. The…

Kershaw’s Mysterious Sixth Inning Meltdown Dooms Dodgers

Clayton Kershaw
April 26, 2016

The Dodgers had one job coming into Tuesday night’s game against the Miami Marlins. They were supposed to forget about Monday night’s 3-2 loss and defeat the lowly Marlins to even the series. With Clayton Kershaw on the mound against mediocre Tom Koehler it certainly seemed like there was a good chance of that happening. The Dodgers were up 3-0 in the sixth inning and Kershaw and the Dodgers were…

Carl Crawford Returns, Koehler Counters Kershaw in Game 2

Carl Crawford
April 26, 2016

The Dodgers suffered another embarrassing loss in a series opener on Monday night 3-2 to the lowly Mattingly Marlins. This might be more pathetic than losing to the Braves. There is nothing worse than making Don Mattingly happy. I can’t stand these awful all righty lineups that Andrew Friedman is coercing Dave Roberts into putting out with left handers on the mound. He did the same thing when Mattingly was still at…

It’s Deja Vu Again, Adrian Gonzalez Is The Unsung Hero Of 2016

April 25, 2016

First things first. Adrian Gonzalez is so cool, he’s got nicknames in two languages. He’s even had a nickname bestowed upon him by none other than the venerable Vin Scully. Gonzalez is a star in MLB and world-class competition. Fans of multiple teams – even rivals – love him. Teammates and opposing pitchers respect him. The man’s personal home run routines even show up in video games. All of this…

Marlins/Dodgers Series Features Old Friends and Familiar Faces

Dodgers/Marlins
April 25, 2016

The Dodgers had to come from behind to defeat the Rockies 12-10 in a wild game on Sunday afternoon. Hundreds of lead changes, blown holds, and a lot of runs gave us a pretty typical Coors Field type game. The bullpen is still pretty bad and Kenley Jansen is still really good. Playing at Coors Field is like playing on the moon. The Dodgers will now return home to play…

Kenta Maeda Flirts With No-Hitter, Goes Home With A Win

April 23, 2016

Kenta Maeda brought some Japanese-flavored Dodger mojo to the mound at Coors Field tonight, trying to right the Dodgers’ ship after yesterday’s loss. He got us all thinking about something special for a couple of innings, and caused the boys in the broadcast truck to dust off the old videotapes of Hideo Nomo‘s Colorado no-hitter. He eventually lost the bid to match his fellow countryman’s rainy day feat, but he…

Dodgers Try To Even Series With Rockies, Deal With New Injuries

Yasiel Puig
April 23, 2016

The Dodger bullpen blew another one just hours after Oscar jinxed them with an article praising their recent performances. Of course we all would love to be able to blame Oscar for the problems with the pen if only because it’s really funny. All joking aside it is not Oscar’s fault. The bullpen had been pitching better lately. Oscar details that well in his latest. However the bullpen fully regressed by blowing…

Dodgers Open First Series at Despised Coors Field

Chase Utley (26)
April 22, 2016

The Dodgers got out of Atlanta with a series win. Another extra inning win gave them their tenth win of the regular season. The Dodgers are now 10-6 this season and are now all alone in first place in the National League West. Not bad at all for a club with over a dozen players on the disabled list by opening day. This is what we were talking about when the word…

Dodgers Play Final Game at Turner Field On Getaway Day

Clayton Kershaw
April 21, 2016

The Dodgers finally realized late Wednesday evening that they were in fact playing the Atlanta Braves, one of the worst clubs in the major leagues before they rallied for a 5-3 win in extra innings to even up the three game series at one game apiece. They did fail to get a runner on base against former Dodger Jim Johnson, which is a shameful act but they won. Hey a…

Utley Defense,Gonzalez Offense and Bullpen Grit Lead to Dodgers Win

In the second of three games against the Atlanta Braves, Ross Stripling took to the mound for the Dodgers, looking to avenge the 8-1 shellacking Atlanta laid upon them in the opening game of the series. Julio Teheran went to the bump for Atlanta, and Chase Utley ensured the game would a doozy. 2nd inning Dodgers Yasmani Grandal stroked a two-out double to center. The Dodgers left him there. 3rd…

Ross Stripling Looks To Earn First MLB Win, Even Series For Dodgers

Ross Stripling
April 20, 2016

Boy what a pathetic start to the road trip. An 8-1 loss to the Barves, I mean lousy Braves puts the Dodgers at 8-6 now through the first 14 games. That’s not terribly unimpressive, but it’s not great either. I guess with all of the players on the disabled list, it’s probably better than expected. Speaking of unimpressive, I give you Alex Wood. The left hander now has a 1.75 WHIP,…
