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…

Dodgers Swept by Angels, Look Terrible

Freeway Series
April 2, 2016

These games don’t count. That’s what we gotta keep telling ourselves after the Dodgers lost the finale of the Freeway series to the Angels by an 8-1 score. The Dodgers were easily swept and looked pathetic.  Alex Wood got bombed, and the club only scored one run again. It’s almost as if we never left 2015. You know I want to give Alex Wood a chance, and trust me I…

Dodgers Could Use Rotation Platoon

Alex Wood
March 18, 2016

I believe it was Bumsrap who suggested that the Dodgers have a rotation that rotated. This is meaning that the club swaps around the pitchers. Of course the top three of Clayton Kershaw, Scott Kazmir, and Kenta Maeda are locked in. What he meant was that the bottom two spots in the rotation could be switched around based on matchup. So one guy starts this week, next week a different…

We just learned the news that shortstop Corey Seager is going to  miss 1-2 weeks with a sprained left knee ligament. Seager suffered the injury during Monday afternoon’s 8-4 loss to the Angels when he was rounding first base after hitting a single. The Dodgers then sent him for an MRI and learned of the news. This is probably the best result we could get because the MRI showed no structural damage…

Brett Anderson

It may be nothing more than early spring aches and pains, but the Dodgers starting rotation is starting to thin out already before a single pitch has been thrown. The club reported that left hander Brett Anderson felt a tweak in his lower back after a bullpen session on Wednesday afternoon at Camelback Ranch. Knowing Anderson’s injury history he’ll be in an old folk’s home by next Tuesday. The Dodgers halted his…
