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

Carl Crawford
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…

Dodgers Take Atlanta Series and Bury the Tomahawk

Clayton Kershaw
April 21, 2016

Today’s afternoon game (morning for us in LA) brought Clayton Kershaw and A.J. Ellis up against rookie Atlanta pitcher Matt Wisler. This getaway day also featured a different lineup for Dave Robert’s Dodgers; for the first time in his young career, Joc Pederson batted clean up – on his 24th birthday, no less! Here’s how the rubber match played out… 1st inning Dodgers Joc Pederson skied a soft fly ball…

Dodgers Play Final Game at Turner Field On Getaway Day

Clayton Kershaw
April 21, 2016

The Dodgers finally realized late Wednesday evening that they were in fact playing the Atlanta Braves, one of the worst clubs in the major leagues before they rallied for a 5-3 win in extra innings to even up the three game series at one game apiece. They did fail to get a runner on base against former Dodger Jim Johnson, which is a shameful act but they won. Hey a…

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…

Madison Bumgarner vs. Clayton Kershaw Round Two on Jackie Robinson Night

Clayton Kershaw
April 15, 2016

Tonight is Jackie Robinson night, and what better way to pay tribute to the pioneer then to beat the crap out of the Giants. If everything goes according to plan, that’s what should happen tonight as the Giants come into Dodger Stadium for a three game series. All of Baseball will be honoring the great Jackie by wearing his number 42. There should be a special tribute like there normally…

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…

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…

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

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…

April 3, 2016

The Dodgers have announced their 25-man opening roster for the 2016 season. The will have eight players on the disabled list to begin the season. As I predicted Charlie Culberson makes the roster. Louis Coleman does as well. The Dodgers are going with just one left hander in the bullpen. Tracye Thompson makes the roster as well. He should get some playing time with the injury to Andre Ethier. No…
