A Win For The Dodgers on Memorial Day, is A Win For America

Dodgers vs. Cubs
May 30, 2016

Don’t look now but the Dodgers have won 6 of their last 7 games. The Dodgers escaped New York with a series win thanks to Adrian Gonzalez’s clutch ninth inning two-run single to give the Dodgers a 4-2 win over the Mets on Sunday night baseball in the series finale. Dave Robert’s questionable decision to pull Clayton Kershaw with two outs and at 114 pitches in the bottom of the…

Kershaw, Dodgers Go For Series Win in Gotham Rubber Game

Clayton Kershaw
May 29, 2016

Karma came back to bite the Mets in the butt on Saturday night. They tried to finally retaliate against Chase Utley and paid the price for it. It resulted in starter Noah Syndergaard and manager Terry Collins getting ejected from the game in the third inning. Utley ended up hitting two home runs including a grand slam in the seventh inning as he drove in five runs to lead the…

Syndergaard, Mets Chased, Dodgers Even Series

Chase Utley
May 28, 2016

It’s Chase Utley’s world, and we are all just living in it. The Dodgers evened the series in Gotham after they demolished the Mets in a controversial win on Fox‘s Saturday national broadcast. Chase Utley continued his wonderful terrorization of the New York Mets as he slugged two home runs including a grand slam in the top of the seventh that put the Dodgers ahead by a 6-0 score. Utley…

Dodgers Look To Even Gotham Series, Maeda Vs. Syndergaard in Game 2

Dodgers vs. Mets
May 28, 2016

Now that the Julio Urias mania is over with we can get back to our regularly scheduled losing. The Urias debut was an astounding disappointment, but the kid is alright. It was a tough assignment for him and the Dodgers probably should have had him debut in the more comfortable environment of Dodger Stadium then throwing him into the fire at Citi Field. (*Update*) It looks like Urias is being optioned back to Oklahoma…

Spoiled Urias Debut and Spoiled Utley Finish Spell Defeat for Dodgers 6-5

May 27, 2016

It was Game One of a weekend series in the Big Apple, and there was plenty on the plate. It was the first chance for Citi Field fans to see Chase Utley since the bitter NLCS of last season, and of course, the debut of the teen-aged phenom, Julio Urias. Oh yeah, some guy named Jacob deGrom pitched for the Mets.  This is how it played out. 1st inning Mets…

Grandal and Pederson
May 25, 2016

Daniel Wright Makes MLB Debut Versus Dodgers in Game Two

Mike Bolsinger
May 24, 2016

Why is everyone in such a great mood at work today? The answer is Clayton Kershaw of course, of course. The ace pitched his third complete game shutout of the season in the Dodger’s 1-0 win over the Reds during the series opener on Monday evening. The Dodgers have now won two whole games in a row. Somebody get excited. Miracles do happen every day. Tonight the Dodgers give the ball to…

Weary Dodgers Return Home

Reds vs. Dodgers
May 23, 2016

The Dodgers returned home after holding us hostage for the longest game of our lives. Seven hours and seventeen innings later the boys in blue finally emerged victorious by scoring four runs in the top of the seventeenth inning to defeat San Diego. It was Yasiel Puig’s two-run single that was the difference maker in the marathon. Ross Stripling was the pitching MVP tossing three scoreless frames once the entire…

Freeway Series Finale

Freeway Series
May 19, 2016

Wednesday night’s 8-1 loss to the Angels was a total disaster. Mike Bolsinger pitched ok, but the Dodger’s defense in conjunction with their subpar relief pitching did them in during that fifth inning meltdown. The offense was as useless as ever, scoring just the one run and doing virtually nothing else. Does that sound familiar? It should. The Dodgers are now 13-19 in games not started by Clayton Kershaw. The boys in…

The Freeway Series of Mediocrity Continues – Weaver vs. Kershaw

Freeway Series1
May 17, 2016

The Freeway Series continues on Tuesday night as the Dodgers conclude their nine game home stand. A win would give the club a 5-4 record, but a loss means a losing home stand. Regardless they’ve had another lackluster home stand. The Dodgers are mired in mediocrity and only major changes to the roster can turn things around for them. These are not championship caliber players. The big problems are the…

Cardinals Kazified by Scott Kazmir, Dodgers Win 5-3

Scott Kazmir
May 14, 2016

Baseball is such a crazy game. You can never predict it. For example, did you guys think that Scott Kazmir would shutdown the best hitting club in all of baseball on just five hits over 8.2 innings? I sure didn’t. I figured Kazmir would get lit up like a Christmas tree. Fortunately that didn’t happen. Instead Kazmir was dominant, and the Dodgers scored five runs off of a tiring Carlos Martinez…

Dodgers Hope To Bring The Hammer Down On Noah Syndergaard (Thor) in Game 3

Trayce Thompson
May 11, 2016

The Dodgers got a rare gift last night with Tracye Thompson’s exciting walk-off bomb that lifted the Dodgers to a 3-2 win over the Mets to even the series. Not only did that blast give the Dodgers a rare home win, but it also spared us all the agony of watching Chris Hatcher pitch another inning. He was looming in the bullpen at the time of the Thompson home run….

Conversation With The Enemy – Gotham Edition

Utley Slide
May 10, 2016

The Dodgers open a four game series against the Mets on Monday evening at Dodger Stadium. The NLDS rematch kicks off a nine game home stand for the Dodgers. The two clubs have not met since last October’s chippy 5-game playoff series. The Dodgers came up on the short end, but not before there was no shortage of drama and exciting moments. Unfortunately the Dodgers were eliminated and the Mets…

Dodgers Open Home Stand With NLDS Rematch Versus Mets

Mets Vs. Dodgers
May 9, 2016

The Dodgers have returned home after an ok road trip, but finished the trip strong with a series win over the Blue Jays in the final game on Mother’s Day. The Dodgers played five games on artificial turf and came away clean as a whistle. They won three out of the five games, didn’t embarrass themselves as much as we thought they would, and even Carl Crawford survived and didn’t end up…

Screw Your Turf! Dodgers Win One For Mom

Blame Canada
May 8, 2016

The Dodgers wrapped up their series north of the Canadian border and also wrapped up their all turf trip in grand style with a 4-2 win over Toronto. Today is mother’s day and what better gift to give Mom than a neat little Dodger victory all shiny and glimmering. Try it on Mom, it fits you perfectly. The Dodgers and Blue Jays were all wearing pink to raise awareness for…

It’s All Up To Kershaw Again

Clayton Kershaw
May 7, 2016

After another frustratingly pathetic loss on Friday evening the Dodgers are now officially a losing club with a 14-15 record. Get used to it. There are more losses to come. I am sorry I can’t be optimistic right now, but I have seen enough from this roster. Major changes need to be made now or the Dodgers won’t contend this season. It’s that simple. I believe that the Dodgers need more baseball…
