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…

It’s Time For Julio Urias Mania in Gotham City

Julio Urias
May 27, 2016

The start of Julio Urias mania will begin tonight in New York’s Citi Field against the Mets, and what a place for it to begin. We all knew Urias would be called up at some point soon. The anticipation for this event is unlike any other we have seen since maybe Clayton Kershaw’s debut. The 19-year old Mexican prospect was dominating hitters in the Pacific Coast League this season. Urias…

Thompson and Turner
May 25, 2016

The Dodgers handed the Reds their tenth consecutive loss on Wednesday night defeating them by a 3-1 score and completing a three game sweep.

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…

How to Fix The Dodgers in 24 Hours or Less

We can see it. At least half the crowd in Chavez Ravine can see it. But I don’t think Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts and his “advisors” can. This team, run on the same strategies that they’ve tried night after night, is headed straight for Nowheresville – and last time I checked, they don’t host the World Series there. Take some advice and look in the mirror, Roberts and Co. Think…

Dodgers Try Again Versus Padres

Justin Turner and Carl Crawford
May 21, 2016

All of the good feelings from Justin Turner’s two-run eighth inning go-ahead home run were immediately erased when Kenley Jansen chose a horribly bad time to have his first blown save of the season leading to the Dodger’s 7-6 loss to the Padres on Friday evening. The good thoughts were certainly there. Seeing some Justin Turner magic return to the club was a great feeling. Things felt like maybe they…

If I Were GM….

Yasiel Puig
May 21, 2016

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…

Dodgers Open Another Series at San Diego

Dodgers vs. Padres
May 20, 2016

The Dodgers travel into San Diego for a weekend set and what better way to get well after suffering another pathetic series loss than to play the lowly Padres. After the Dodgers rolled over to the Angels in the Freeway Series, it’s just a hop skip and a jump down to Petco Park. The Dodgers opened the season on April 4-6 with three wins in San Diego in which they…

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…

Freeway Series Shifts To Anaheim, Mike Bolsinger Makes Season Debut

The Big A
May 18, 2016

The Dodgers evened the Freeway Series on Tuesday night with a 5-1 win over the Angels thanks to another masterful performance from maestro Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw now has 88 whiffs and 4 walks on the season and has struck out 10 or more batters in six consecutive outings. My god that man is a pitching artist. Now the Dodgers have to prove they can win in games not started by Kershaw as…

Dodgers’ Youth Pounding On The Door – Is FO Deaf As Well As Blind?

May 18, 2016

The time has come to drop the dead weights out of the Dodgers’ lineup, drop others down in the batting order, and to knock off the ridiculous platoons.  It’s time to move forward with the players that deliver with enthusiasm, with power – and how’s this for revolutionary baseball thinking? – with some consistency. The Dodgers’ brain trust (whomever that cabal consists of) that sets the daily starters has been…

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…
