Dodgers Look To Beat Up on Rubby De La Rosa Again

Alex Wood
April 13, 2016

Whenever the Dodgers are feeling blue they usually end up facing former farmhand Rubby De La Rosa and they beat the crap out of him. Nothing makes us feel better than knocking around De La Rosa again. The Dodgers always demolish him. I’m sure they’re licking their chops right now and thanking the Dbacks for sending him out tonight. The Dodgers just have to figure out a way to keep…

Dodger Bullpen Blows Vin Scully’s Final Opening Day

Kike Hernandez
April 12, 2016

“It’s still early” “The guys need time to gel” “Give them some time, they’ll figure it out” “Spending money on relief pitchers is stupid” “The Dodgers have to cut payroll” “It’s Rick Honeycutt’s fault” “It’s Dave Robert’s fault” “These guys have loads of potential” “They’re good pitchers, they’re just struggling right now” “Games in April aren’t as important as games in September” “It’s Andrew Friedman’s fault”   Ok maybe the…

Dodgers Return Home Against Snakes

Howie Kendrick
April 12, 2016

The Dodgers return home today with Vin Scully Avenue renamed in time for this afternoon’s opening day game against the Dbacks. The Dodgers had a 4-3 road trip, which seems like a decent trip except for the fact that they were embarrassed in San Francisco and the pitching staff is awful. The Dodgers blew leads in all three losses to the Giants while giving up about a hundred runs. With the Dodgers…

How Should The Dodgers Feel After The First Road Trip?

Joc Pederson
April 11, 2016

Okay so that road trip had some ups, some downs, and almost nothing in the middle. The wins were either dominant and exciting (shutout sweep of San Diego/coming back for Kershaw) or brutally frustrating (blowing leads in all of the losses at the phonebooth). All in all, a 4-3 road trip, coming back to Dodger stadium, winning 4 out of every 7 road games is a desirable outcome, but lets…

Dodgers Finally Win in Phony Book Park

Charlie Culberson
April 9, 2016

The Dodgers finally defeated the Giants 3-2 in ten innings on Saturday afternoon. Of course I was at work and didn’t get to see it, but I still enjoyed it in my mind. Knowing the Dodgers won made the day much better, even if I couldn’t see it. The Dodgers were able to at least save face by salvaging one win in this series. Unfortunately the Dodgers were struck with…

Clayton Kershaw vs. Madison Bumgarner Heavyweight Fight

Clayton Kershaw
April 9, 2016

First off, I would like to apologize to Ross Stripling and his family for the steaming pile of crap that Andrew Friedman thinks is the Dodger bullpen. Ross you did great and you deserved a better fate in that game. It’s too bad that you couldn’t have at least gotten the win. You have a long and successful career ahead of you. Of course I understand the Dodger’s decision to…

Ross Stripling’s Magical Night Ruined By “Bullpen”

Ross Stripling
April 9, 2016

Notice how I used the term bullpen in parenthesis, because those collection of bums do not assemble a bullpen. The Dodgers suffered another painful loss at the hands of the Giants on Friday evening by a score of 3-2. The front office and Dave Roberts joined forces to not only steal history from rookie Ross Stripling who was pitching a no-hitter through 7.1 innings, but then handed the game to the…

Ross Stripling Makes MLB Debut For Dodgers in Game 2

Ross Stripling
April 8, 2016

The Dodgers were embarrassed yesterday after nearly setting a major league record for consecutive scoreless innings to start a season. They were just one inning away from tying it before Alex Wood and the bullpen imploded to give up 12 unanswered runs to the Giants in a 12-6 loss. That was the first loss of the season for the Dodgers and they have now lost 9 of their last 11 games played…

Dodgers/Padres Series Review

Kenta Maeda Home Run
April 7, 2016

In case you missed it, here is a series review of the Dodger’s opening series against the Padres at San Diego. The series couldn’t have gone any better for the Dodgers than it did. The Dodgers broke records, and I am sure that after the incredible performance in the opening series, their odds of winning the World Series on odds maker sites like baseball betting at william hill increased at…

Alex Wood Not Good, Bullpen Awful, Dodgers Embarrassed in San Francisco

Alex Wood
April 7, 2016

I had a really funny recap written up for this game in the fifth inning when the Dodgers were up 4-0, prepared to break the MLB record for consecutive scoreless innings to start the season and everything was all hunky dory. Then reality came crashing down. The Giants scored 12 runs over the final five frames of the game and the Dodgers were handed their first loss of the season…

Dodgers Enter Lion’s Den, Alex Wood vs. Jake Peavy in Game 1

April 7, 2016

The Dodgers are on fire. They are locked in on both sides of the ball. New manager Dave Roberts has this club running like a finely tuned locomotive. It’s a far cry from bump on the log Don Mattingly. The Dodgers just demolished the Padres by a combined score of 25-0. They set a new franchise record by shutting out the Padres in three consecutive games to start the season,…

Dodgers Go For Sweep, Kenta Maeda Debuts

Kenta Maeda
April 6, 2016

The 2016 season has gone better than anyone could have expected for the Dodgers. The club has won their first two games by a combined score of 18-0 over the Padres. The pitching staff has yet to allow a run in their first two starts. As a matter of fact it’s the first time ever I believe that the Dodgers have gotten back-to-back 6 IP or more no runs allowed…

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

Adrian Gonzalez hugs Dave Roberts
April 5, 2016

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

Opening Day
April 4, 2016

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…

The 2016 Dodgers season officially kicks off later today with a strange mid late afternoon start against the Padres at Petco Park. The Dodgers start the season on the road this year. They’ll play a three game series at San Diego Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday before heading into the lion’s den to play a four game series against the Giants starting Thursday and going through the weekend.

Ten Predictions For Opening Day

April 4, 2016

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…
