If I Were GM….

We are approaching Memorial Day which is the quarter mark of the 2016 season. Memorial Day is always a good time to reevaluate your baseball club and start to consider moves to make that would improve your team. So far through the first quarter of the season, the Dodgers have played very poorly. They’ve sucked, and the front office has done nothing to address the issues. Unless you want to count…

Numberfire Breaks Down Clayton Kershaw’s Incredible Start

Clayton Kershaw
May 20, 2016

It is truly a shame that the Dodgers are wasting Clayton Kershaw’s unique talent and another epic campaign by surrounding him with the mediocrity that they have placed around him. Kershaw is having another magnificent season and this may be his greatest one yet. He’s struck out 10 or more batters in six consecutive starts. So far he has whiffed 88 and walked only 4 while posting an incredible 1.67…

Dodgers vs Angels Game Two. The Dodgers handed the ball to the man who stops the losing streaks, Clayton Kershaw – although that might tell you more about the Dodgers than the man. Let’s see how this one turned out. 1st inning Kershaw vs Angels 3 up, 3 down with 2 Ks 2nd inning Angels Three singles and a balk brought in the first run of the night.  1-0 3rd…

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…

The final game of Gotham City vs the City of the Angels brought with it another great marquee matchup: Clayton Kershaw vs King Kong, Bartolo Colòn. This one was going to be well worth the watch (if you’re one of the 40% of LA residents lucky enough to have access to the Dodgers on tv). Here’s what happened. 1st inning Dodgers Two pitches, two singles. Justin Turner up. Base hit!…

Clayton Kershaw And The Fat Man in Series Finale

Clayton Kershaw
May 12, 2016

The nice little reprieve we had for Tuesday night’s 3-2 Dodger win evaporated quickly as the Dodger’s sunk back to mediocrity with a 4-3 loss to the Mets on Wednesday evening. Noah Syndergaard also known as Thor shocked us all with two home runs off of Kenta Maeda. He also destroyed the Dodgers with his arm as well. The Dodgers will have to win tonight to earn a series split. In the…

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…

The second game of the series between the Dodgers and Blue Jays featured a battle between two Cy Young Award winners, Clayton Kershaw and knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. No further hype necessary. 2nd inning Joc Pederson went BOOM! Knuckleball, shmuckleball! Pederson blasted a solo home run that flew 434 feet to center field. Note to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts: Do not sit the hot home run bats, skipper! Jays Scored one…

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…

Clayton Kershaw Steps Up, Padres Fall Down. Losing Streak Over!

The Dodgers had dropped six games in a row, lost back to back series’, and were in danger of dropping out of first place in the .500 Division, the NL West. If anybody could stop the skid and right the ship, the best pitcher on planet Earth could do it – and he did. 1st inning Clayton Kershaw stepped to the Dodger Stadium mound and made quite an opening statement!…

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…

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

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

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…

Numberfire Breaks Down Clayton Kershaw’s Eephus Pitch

Clayton Kershaw
April 24, 2016

Remember when Clayton Kershaw tossed that 46-mph eephus ball on Thursday afternoon in Atlanta? The floater befuddled batter Tyler Flowers and the Braves, and delighted everyone on twitter. It was something you don’t normally see every day, especially from a three-time Cy Young award winner who is notorious for sawing off bats like he was tossing chainsaws to the plate. Apparently Kershaw was not supposed to throw that pitch, nor…
