Dodgers May Never Win Again

Ever Again…… The Dodger’s losing streak has now reached five games and we’re beginning to enter defcon 5. Last night’s pathetic performance was just another pathetic performance in a long line of pathetic performances. The club scored one run and the bullpen imploded again in the late innings. Even the most ardent brain trust supporters are beginning to see that there are some real problems with this club that go beyond just the injuries….

The Dodgers Need a Long Man, and Clean Up The Bullpen Mess

J.P. Howell
April 11, 2016

This latest series loss to the Giants has greatly exposed the Dodger’s primary weakness. That weakness is middle relief. I am specifically referring to the lack of a long man in the bullpen. The Dodgers lost to the Giants by a score of 9-6 on Sunday afternoon, losing the series 3-1. Scott Kazmir blew a 5-run Dodger lead within the blink of an eye. He lasted only 4 innings allowing…

Ross Stripling’s Magical Night Ruined By “Bullpen”

Notice how I used the term bullpen in parenthesis, because those collection of bums do not assemble a bullpen. The Dodgers suffered another painful loss at the hands of the Giants on Friday evening by a score of 3-2.

Nothing to do but watch the players hop around and do jumping jacks, play catch, and take batting practice. Speaking of boring, the Dodgers are preparing for one of their most boring springs in years. Scott AndesScott Andes: Former…

Never have so many words been written about Joe Blanton within the last week. The Dodgers recently announced the signing of the 35-year old veteran hurler to a one-year four million dollar contract laden heavily with performance incentives. The deal initially seemed horrifying to many of us who had to suffer through his awful pitching for those two months back in 2012 when he was a Dodger. We had thought…
