Top 5 Dodger Moments of 2016: Charlie Culberson’s Division Clinching Blast

Charlie Culberson
December 27, 2016

When the Dodgers acquired slick fielding infielder Charlie Culberson from the free agent pool last winter, we all laughed a little. The 27-year old former Rockie was entering his fourth MLB season. Culberson had garnered 23 plate appearances for the Giants in 2012 before spending the next two seasons with Colorado. He was just the type of player that Andrew Friedman and his sidekick Farhan Zaidi loved. Culberson was cheap,…


Dodgers Show Tenderness To Non-Tenders (Except Poor Louis Coleman)

Charlie Culberson
December 3, 2016

The Dodgers showed some touching tenderness to three non-tender candidates on Friday morning. The club announced they have signed contract extensions with outfielder/first baseman Scott Van Slyke, infielder Charlie Culberson and right handed pitcher Chris Hatcher. Van Slyke had an injury riddled 2016, appearing in only 52 games and garnering just 113 plate appearances. He batted only .225 and hit just one home run while posting a .606 OPS. Historically…


NLDS Shifts To Dodger Stadium, Gonzalez vs. Maeda in Game 3

Justin Turner
October 10, 2016

I’m not ready to panic yet, but I am sure some of you are. The Dodgers and Nationals split the two games in Washington over the weekend and the series returns to Dodgers Stadium with the two clubs tied at one game each. The Dodgers took the first game by a 4-3 score thanks to great relief pitching and power hitting from Corey Seager and Justin Turner. Kenley Jansen recorded…


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

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: 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…


Get Ready For Jose De Leon

September 4, 2016

The event that everyone has been clamoring for is finally here. Top prospect Jose De Leon will be making his Dodger debut this afternoon. The 24-year old phenom’s contract was selected today and he will be taking the mound against the Padres in the series finale and rubber game of this three game series. The Dodgers were able to even the series on Saturday night thanks to a solid start…


Percentage Baseball Mismatch: Brock Stewart vs. Jon Lester

August 28, 2016

Percentage baseball again! Wonderful! Everyone enjoy! The Dodgers badly needed a win after they were almost no-hit by Matt Moore and the Giants and then blew a 4-3 lead in the top of the ninth to the Cubs, eventually losing in extras by a 6-4 score. The lead was down to one game in the NL West and the natives were getting restless. So the Dodgers gave the ball to…


Dodgers Use Potassium Power To Down Bumbling Giants

Kike Hernandez
April 15, 2016

The Dodgers defeated the Giants 7-3 on Friday evening in the series opener on Jackie Robinson night. Jackie would have been quite proud of the boys in blue as they took advantage of several Giant’s miscues in the field. Kike Hernandez and Charlie Culberson drove in all the runs, with Kike slugging two home runs on the evening. This was a sloppy game on both sides as there were four…


Injury Updates, Van Slyke, Hatcher Available, Kendrick, Grandal Nearing Returns

Chris Hatcher
April 10, 2016

While the Dodgers are attempting for a series split in San Francisco, I’ll give you guys an update on some of the injuries. It looks like Scott Van Slyke and Chris Hatcher are both available but limited after their recent injuries. Van Slyke can pinch-hit and doesn’t look like he is going to be placed on the disabled list. The big outfielder injured his lower back during the Dodger’s 3-2…


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…
