Dodgers Kazify Reds To Finish Sweep

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. The Reds have now lost nine straight to the Dodgers and the Dodgers have won four in a row themselves. Scott Kazmir pitched the game of his life by allowing just one earned run on four hits and striking out 12 over 6 innings. Opposing starter…

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…

Cardinals Kazified by Scott Kazmir, Dodgers Win 5-3

Scott Kazmir
May 14, 2016

Baseball is such a crazy game. You can never predict it. For example, did you guys think that Scott Kazmir would shutdown the best hitting club in all of baseball on just five hits over 8.2 innings? I sure didn’t. I figured Kazmir would get lit up like a Christmas tree. Fortunately that didn’t happen. Instead Kazmir was dominant, and the Dodgers scored five runs off of a tiring Carlos Martinez…

Screw Your Turf! Dodgers Win One For Mom

Blame Canada
May 8, 2016

The Dodgers wrapped up their series north of the Canadian border and also wrapped up their all turf trip in grand style with a 4-2 win over Toronto. Today is mother’s day and what better gift to give Mom than a neat little Dodger victory all shiny and glimmering. Try it on Mom, it fits you perfectly. The Dodgers and Blue Jays were all wearing pink to raise awareness for…

Casey Fien Should Fit Right Into The Dodger Bullpen

Casey Fien
May 7, 2016

The Dodgers announced they have claimed right handed reliever Casey Fien off of waivers from the Twins on Saturday afternoon. The last place Twins have been horrendous this season and their dumping of Fien is the first of many moves the club is making to shake up their roster. The 32-year old reliever is having a terrible season, so I am sure he will fit in quite well with the…

Don’t Look Now, But The Dodgers’ Bullpen Has Quietly Come Back

April 22, 2016

The Dodgers bullpen opened the 2016 campaign against the Padres and posted an impressive ERA of zero point zero. In fact, the team’s entire pitching staff put up an almost unbelievable ERA of 0.00 after crushing the Padres in all three games. Then came the hell that was the series in San Francisco. In a horrendous series the Dodgers fumbled away leads of 4-0, 5-0, and a rainy day, no-hitter…

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…

Seventh Inning Rally Wakes Up Dodger Bats

Dodgers Win
April 14, 2016

The Dodgers were in a deep slumber with the bats coming into Thursday evening’s series finale against the Dbacks. The Dodgers were 0 for 18 with runners in scoring position at one point, until they exploded for five runs in the bottom of the seventh. Before then runs were hard to come by. Before the game the Dodgers used the “all righty loser lineup” as I like to call it,…

Dodgers Skipper Dave Roberts Just Reinvented the Game of Baseball

April 14, 2016

The Los Angeles Dodgers have a long tradition of changing the game of baseball – from Jackie Robinson tearing down the biggest wall of all, to Maury Wills creating the stolen base specialist, a new offensive weapon to be feared. As much as I love to ride the Dodgers’ brain trust and ownership over bullpens and television deals, I have to keep things real, and give credit where credit is…

Roberts Gambles, Wood Hardens, And Jansen Saves As The Dodgers Win

April 13, 2016

The second game of the season at Chavez Ravine saw old friend Rubby De La Rosa on the mound for the Arizona Diamondbacks, Howie Kendrick starting in left field for the Dodgers, Alex Wood looking for redemption, and Dodger fans looking dapper in their new giveaway, Dodger blue and white hoodies. Not much happened in the first two innings, so we’ll leap to the third. 3rd inning: No score D-backs Nick…

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…

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…

Did the Dodgers Poison Their Relationship with Kenley Jansen?

April 1, 2016

When the ninth inning rolls around in a tight game, and the Dodgers need someone to come in, save the game, and nail down the win, who does the Dodger Nation want to see take the mound? Fans from every corner of Chavez Ravine will surely shout, “Kenley Jansen!”, in unison. Unfortunately, this may be the last year that Jansen will be that ninth inning hero in blue, as Thursday…

The Dodgers Need Yimi Garcia Healthy

Yimi Garcia
March 28, 2016

Yimi Garcia will be an important part of the Dodger bullpen this season. The 25-year old right hander has been battling a sore knee throughout spring training. Garcia returned to the mound on Sunday afternoon in the Dodger’s 7-6 loss to the White Sox at Camelback Ranch. Garcia looked good despite allowing one earned run on one hit in two-thirds of an inning. Garcia has pitched well this spring, despite…

News And Notes: Dodgers Suffer First Spring Loss With Error Festival

Julio Urias
March 8, 2016

The Dodgers suffered their first loss of the exhibition season on Monday afternoon with an 8-5 defeat to the Indians. In that game Alex Wood countered 26-year old right hander Danny Salazar. I didn’t see the game but Wood apparently got rocked like a hurricane. Wood allowed five runs, two earned on four hits with two strikeouts across two frames. I know it’s just the first spring game so I…

The Dodgers Should Lock-up Kenley Jansen

Kenley
February 22, 2016

There’s been a lot of talk about whether the Dodgers should extend closer Kenley Jansen after a recent article from Ken Gurnick reported that there were no extension talks between Jansen and the Dodgers. The club and Kenley just recently settled on a 10.6 million dollar salary for Kenley for both sides to avoid arbitration. This is Jansen’s final year of arbitration and Kenley is set to hit the free agent market this…
