Mediocre Dodgers Welcome Below Mediocre Padres

April 29, 2016

The internet is still abuzz over the hilariously shocking news of Dee Gordon’s 80-game suspension for testing positive for PEDs. Just imagine little Dee was juicing all along. The thought creeps into my head and almost makes me laugh out loud. Don’t let the funny news distract you from the terrible baseball the Dodgers have been playing. The club just got swept by former manager Don Mattingly and the Miami Marlins four straight. They’ve…

Dodgers May Never Score Again

Yasmani Grandal
April 28, 2016

Never. Ever…again. Leave it to the Dodgers to make Don Mattingly look like a genius. The club is playing a special brand of crappy uninspired baseball. Last night’s 2-0 loss to the Marlins set a remarkable precedent for feeble offense. Now the Dodgers must defeat Jose Fernandez on Thursday night to avoid a sweep at the hands of Don Mattingly and the Marlins. Isn’t moneyball grand? You know things are bad when…

Dodgers Must Turn The Page For Game 3

Yasiel Puig
April 27, 2016

The Dodgers are going to have to pick themselves up from their bootstraps and forget about Tuesday night’s demoralizing meltdown loss to the Marlins. It’s a tough one to get over because it happened against Clayton Kershaw. Even the best of them have bad nights. Kershaw has been flawless before that stupid inning. Fortunately there’s always another game the next day in baseball. The real puzzler has been the lackluster offense. The…

Kershaw’s Mysterious Sixth Inning Meltdown Dooms Dodgers

Clayton Kershaw
April 26, 2016

The Dodgers had one job coming into Tuesday night’s game against the Miami Marlins. They were supposed to forget about Monday night’s 3-2 loss and defeat the lowly Marlins to even the series. With Clayton Kershaw on the mound against mediocre Tom Koehler it certainly seemed like there was a good chance of that happening. The Dodgers were up 3-0 in the sixth inning and Kershaw and the Dodgers were…

Marlins/Dodgers Series Features Old Friends and Familiar Faces

Dodgers/Marlins
April 25, 2016

The Dodgers had to come from behind to defeat the Rockies 12-10 in a wild game on Sunday afternoon. Hundreds of lead changes, blown holds, and a lot of runs gave us a pretty typical Coors Field type game. The bullpen is still pretty bad and Kenley Jansen is still really good. Playing at Coors Field is like playing on the moon. The Dodgers will now return home to play…

Kenta Maeda Flirts With No-Hitter, Goes Home With A Win

April 23, 2016

Kenta Maeda brought some Japanese-flavored Dodger mojo to the mound at Coors Field tonight, trying to right the Dodgers’ ship after yesterday’s loss. He got us all thinking about something special for a couple of innings, and caused the boys in the broadcast truck to dust off the old videotapes of Hideo Nomo‘s Colorado no-hitter. He eventually lost the bid to match his fellow countryman’s rainy day feat, but he…

Dodgers Try To Even Series With Rockies, Deal With New Injuries

Yasiel Puig
April 23, 2016

The Dodger bullpen blew another one just hours after Oscar jinxed them with an article praising their recent performances. Of course we all would love to be able to blame Oscar for the problems with the pen if only because it’s really funny. All joking aside it is not Oscar’s fault. The bullpen had been pitching better lately. Oscar details that well in his latest. However the bullpen fully regressed by blowing…

Dodgers Crash And Burn Upon Arrival At Coors Field

April 22, 2016

The Dodgers went to bed last night feeling pretty good about themselves after taking two of three games from Atlanta. They will go to bed tonight feeling quite differently. Scott Kazmir came into Coors Field with a personal mission of pushing beyond the fourth inning demon that has been stopping him. He managed to go five innings, but it’s going to take a lot more than that to win in…

Dodgers Open First Series at Despised Coors Field

Chase Utley (26)
April 22, 2016

The Dodgers got out of Atlanta with a series win. Another extra inning win gave them their tenth win of the regular season. The Dodgers are now 10-6 this season and are now all alone in first place in the National League West. Not bad at all for a club with over a dozen players on the disabled list by opening day. This is what we were talking about when the word…

Dodgers Play Final Game at Turner Field On Getaway Day

Clayton Kershaw
April 21, 2016

The Dodgers finally realized late Wednesday evening that they were in fact playing the Atlanta Braves, one of the worst clubs in the major leagues before they rallied for a 5-3 win in extra innings to even up the three game series at one game apiece. They did fail to get a runner on base against former Dodger Jim Johnson, which is a shameful act but they won. Hey a…

Ross Stripling Looks To Earn First MLB Win, Even Series For Dodgers

Ross Stripling
April 20, 2016

Boy what a pathetic start to the road trip. An 8-1 loss to the Barves, I mean lousy Braves puts the Dodgers at 8-6 now through the first 14 games. That’s not terribly unimpressive, but it’s not great either. I guess with all of the players on the disabled list, it’s probably better than expected. Speaking of unimpressive, I give you Alex Wood. The left hander now has a 1.75 WHIP,…

Dodgers Flatline, Alex Wood Flames Out, L.A. Loses 8-1 in Atlanta

April 19, 2016

Alex Wood and the Dodgers faced the Atlanta Braves tonight. For the Dodgers, it was their first game of the season east of the Rockies. For Wood, it was his first time to pitch against the team who drafted him. In his first start of the season Wood had a disastrous meltdown after just five innings, but he bounced back and looked much improved against the Diamondbacks last week. Time…

Alex Wood Comes Home To Battle His Former Club

Alex Wood
April 19, 2016

The Dodgers embark on their first east coast series of the season as they kick off a six game road trip with three games in Atlanta. The headline for this game is left hander Alex Wood coming home to pitch against his former club. This will be the first time Wood has faced his old club since being acquired by the Dodgers last summer. Tonight’s match-up will see the southern…

Kenta Maeda, Joc Pederson, and Dodgers Cast Shadow Over Giants

Joc Pederson
April 17, 2016

Japanese import Kenta Maeda and center fielder Joc Pederson delivered big for the Dodgers on Sunday evening during their 3-1 victory over the Giants on ESPN Sunday night baseball. Maeda’s solid pitching and Joc’s huge two-run home in the fifth frame were the difference makers for the Dodgers. The victory gave the Dodgers a series win and sole possession of first place in the NL West. The Dodgers actually defeated the…

Giants/Dodgers Rubber Game Picked up By ESPN

Kenta Maeda
April 17, 2016

Corey Seager hit his first home run on Saturday evening, but in typical Dodger fashion their late inning rally fell one run short. They usually all do. I’ll have to discuss Dave Robert’s Mattingly-esque decision to have Kike Hernandez bunting in the ninth inning with a runner on second base. It killed that rally. Please stop disappointing me Dave. Johnny Cueto completely shut the Dodgers down allowing just three hits and…

Scott Kazmir Looks For Revenge Against Giants in Game Two Rematch Versus Johnny Cueto

Scott Kazmir
April 16, 2016

Banana boy Kike Hernandez crushed two home runs, and Charlie Culberson drove in three to help the Dodgers beat the Giants 7-3 in the series opener. Clayton Kershaw outlasted Madison Bumgarner and the Giants committed three errors which led to three unanswered Dodger runs. Now the Dodgers are looking for another series win as they give the ball to Scott Kazmir for this third start as a Dodger. Embed from Getty Images…
