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…

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…

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…

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…

Here Comes The Freeway Series

Freeway Series
May 16, 2016

Is it already time for the freeway series? It seems like the season just started yesterday. I guess time flies when you’re playing mediocre baseball. The Dodgers actually had been playing a little better so things were starting to look up. They had earned a series split against the Mets, and won the first two games of the series against the Cardinals. They had won three in a row and…

May 15, 2016

It seems that things are beginning to turn around for the Dodgers. They battled for a series split with a very good New York Mets club, and have won two of the first three games against the Cardinals in their current weekend series. They’ve won four of their last six home games and have even scored more than two runs in each of their last five games at Dodger Stadium….

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…

The winning ways continued for the Dodgers on Friday night as they defeated the Cardinals 8-4. The Dodgers scored their most runs at home since well….2015. The previous high this year was 7 runs against the Giants in April. Ross Stripling didn’t pitch great, but pitched well enough to beat his old college buddy Michael Wacha. Defense was the Cardinal’s undoing as they committed 4 errors last night en route…

Stripling Gives Up Lots of Runs, Offense Scores Lots More. Dodgers Win 8-4

The Mets are gone, but things did not necessarily get easier, as the Cheatin’ Cardinals rolled into Chavez Ravine. Tonight’s game brought us Michael Wacha vs Ross Stripling, two former Texas Aggies. Wacha is coming off three consecutive losses, and Stripling, while usually decent, is another reminder that the Dodgers rotation always packs surprises. Here’s how the game went. 1st inning Cardinals Stripling quickly gave up a couple of base…

Cardinals Fly Into Town For Weekend Series

Cardinals vs. Dodgers
May 13, 2016

Clayton Kershaw pitched the Dodgers back above .500 on Thursday night with another dominating performance. He struck out 13 Mets while tossing his second shutout of the season in the Dodger’s 5-0 win. The Dodgers were able to split the four game series with the Mets. That was his fifth consecutive game with 10 or more strikeouts. A nice crisp clean shutout was just what the Dodgers needed. Kershaw is…

The nice little reprieve we had for Tuesday night’s 3-2 Dodger win evaporated quickly as the Dodger’s sunk back to mediocrity with a 4-3 loss to the Mets on Wednesday evening. Noah Syndergaard also known as Thor shocked us all with two home runs off of Kenta Maeda. He also destroyed the Dodgers with his arm as well. The Dodgers will have to win tonight to earn a series split. In the…

Dodgers Hope To Bring The Hammer Down On Noah Syndergaard (Thor) in Game 3

Trayce Thompson
May 11, 2016

The Dodgers got a rare gift last night with Tracye Thompson’s exciting walk-off bomb that lifted the Dodgers to a 3-2 win over the Mets to even the series. Not only did that blast give the Dodgers a rare home win, but it also spared us all the agony of watching Chris Hatcher pitch another inning. He was looming in the bullpen at the time of the Thompson home run….

The Dodgers open a four game series against the Mets on Monday evening at Dodger Stadium. The NLDS rematch kicks off a nine game home stand for the Dodgers. The two clubs have not met since last October’s chippy 5-game playoff series. The Dodgers came up on the short end, but not before there was no shortage of drama and exciting moments. Unfortunately the Dodgers were eliminated and the Mets…
