Ross Stripling’s Magical Night Ruined By “Bullpen”

Ross Stripling
April 9, 2016

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. The front office and Dave Roberts joined forces to not only steal history from rookie Ross Stripling who was pitching a no-hitter through 7.1 innings, but then handed the game to the…

Ross Stripling Makes MLB Debut For Dodgers in Game 2

Ross Stripling
April 8, 2016

The Dodgers were embarrassed yesterday after nearly setting a major league record for consecutive scoreless innings to start a season. They were just one inning away from tying it before Alex Wood and the bullpen imploded to give up 12 unanswered runs to the Giants in a 12-6 loss. That was the first loss of the season for the Dodgers and they have now lost 9 of their last 11 games played…

Kenta Maeda Home Run
April 7, 2016

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…

Alex Wood Not Good, Bullpen Awful, Dodgers Embarrassed in San Francisco

Alex Wood
April 7, 2016

I had a really funny recap written up for this game in the fifth inning when the Dodgers were up 4-0, prepared to break the MLB record for consecutive scoreless innings to start the season and everything was all hunky dory. Then reality came crashing down. The Giants scored 12 runs over the final five frames of the game and the Dodgers were handed their first loss of the season…

The Dodgers are on fire. They are locked in on both sides of the ball. New manager Dave Roberts has this club running like a finely tuned locomotive. It’s a far cry from bump on the log Don Mattingly. The Dodgers just demolished the Padres by a combined score of 25-0. They set a new franchise record by shutting out the Padres in three consecutive games to start the season,…

Oh, Maeda! Zenshow! Dodgers Sweep The Padres!

Kenta Maeda
April 6, 2016

Kenta Maeda, the Dodgers’ new Japanese import took the mound at Petco Park in his MLB debut tonight, trying to notch his first win and nail down the sweep over the San Diego Padres. Maeda wore number 18, which is the same number of his  ex-Hiroshima Carp teammate and ex-Dodger, Hiroki Kuroda. Those silly Padres once again tried to change their mojo with a uniform change, wearing their third different…

Dodgers Go For Sweep, Kenta Maeda Debuts

Kenta Maeda
April 6, 2016

The 2016 season has gone better than anyone could have expected for the Dodgers. The club has won their first two games by a combined score of 18-0 over the Padres. The pitching staff has yet to allow a run in their first two starts. As a matter of fact it’s the first time ever I believe that the Dodgers have gotten back-to-back 6 IP or more no runs allowed…

April 5, 2016

Just 24 hours after the Dodgers pummeled the San Diego Padres with the biggest Opening Day trouncing in history, Scott Kazmir stepped to the mound in Petco Park, and made his own mark as the second half of the one, two lefty punch at the top of the Dodgers’ rotation. The Padres broke out their funky oldies, 1970’s brown and gold uniforms, perhaps in an attempt to change their mojo….

Dodgers Give The Ball to Scott Kazmir to Keep The Good Times Rolling

Adrian Gonzalez hugs Dave Roberts
April 5, 2016

The Dodgers win the World Series! The Dodgers win the World Series! In an opening day that has been improbable, the impossible has happened! Ok, ok, I am joking, but opening day is such an important day that it’s not that far from the truth. People make way too much of opening day results then they should. Remember it’s only one game, and while it’s always nice to win on…

Opening Day
April 4, 2016

Welp everybody the Dodgers have done it. They’ve defeated the Padres on opening day and won the World Series. Thanks to the benefit of their perfect record and 1.000 winning percentage. Of course I joke. There is a lot more work to be done here. It’s always nice to win the first game though. The Dodgers did that and then some with an epic 15-0 victory on opening day. The…

The Dodgers have announced their 25-man opening roster for the 2016 season. The will have eight players on the disabled list to begin the season. As I predicted Charlie Culberson makes the roster. Louis Coleman does as well. The Dodgers are going with just one left hander in the bullpen. Tracye Thompson makes the roster as well. He should get some playing time with the injury to Andre Ethier. No…

Dodgers Return Home, Offense Does Not

Corey Seager
March 31, 2016

The Dodgers returned home to play a low scoring affair in the opening game of the Freeway series against the Angels. It was a return of 2015 baseball as the Dodger offense took the night off and the bullpen blew a late tie. It wasn’t a blown save, but a blown tie in the top of the eighth. Right hander Chris Hatcher was the blower, taking us back to the…

Brett Anderson
March 26, 2016

This has been a miserable spring for the Dodgers, and it keeps getting worse. The reason for the misery has been a slew of injuries. Now the Dodgers have three more injured players to add to the growing list. The severity of these injuries is yet to be determined. Outfielder Yasiel Puig is reported to have left hamstring tightness and was a late scratch from Saturday’s game against the White Sox. Apparently…
