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…

It’s All Up To Kershaw Again

Clayton Kershaw
May 7, 2016

After another frustratingly pathetic loss on Friday evening the Dodgers are now officially a losing club with a 14-15 record. Get used to it. There are more losses to come. I am sorry I can’t be optimistic right now, but I have seen enough from this roster. Major changes need to be made now or the Dodgers won’t contend this season. It’s that simple. I believe that the Dodgers need more baseball…

Kenta Maeda: Gotta Keep em Separated

Kenta Maeda
May 5, 2016

Dodger’s Japanese right hander Kenta Maeda is very good at two things. One of those is getting hitters to swing at strikes outside of the zone. He’s been doing that all season at one of the best clips in all of baseball. According to the numbers he’s inducing those swings at pitches outside the zone 36.1% of the time. Another thing Maeda does very well is getting velocity separation on his…

Dodgers Go For Sweep in Tampa

Trayce Thomspon and A.J. Ellis
May 4, 2016

So the Dodger bats magically came to life in Tuesday night’s 10-5 win over Tampa Bay. The series opener saw the Dodgers blast three home runs, highlighted by Trayce Thompson’s gigantic bomb. Thompson was the offensive star of the night driving in four of the ten runs. Yasiel Puig and Joc Pederson each added a dinger for good measure, and the Dodgers survived another J.P. Howell atrocity to take the…

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.
