Dodgers Use Potassium Power To Down Bumbling Giants

Kike Hernandez
April 15, 2016

The Dodgers defeated the Giants 7-3 on Friday evening in the series opener on Jackie Robinson night. Jackie would have been quite proud of the boys in blue as they took advantage of several Giant’s miscues in the field. Kike Hernandez and Charlie Culberson drove in all the runs, with Kike slugging two home runs on the evening. This was a sloppy game on both sides as there were four…

Madison Bumgarner vs. Clayton Kershaw Round Two on Jackie Robinson Night

Clayton Kershaw
April 15, 2016

Tonight is Jackie Robinson night, and what better way to pay tribute to the pioneer then to beat the crap out of the Giants. If everything goes according to plan, that’s what should happen tonight as the Giants come into Dodger Stadium for a three game series. All of Baseball will be honoring the great Jackie by wearing his number 42. There should be a special tribute like there normally…

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,…

Ross Stripling Looks For Redemption in Rubber Game Against Dbacks

Ross Stripling
April 14, 2016

Dodger’s rookie right hander Ross Stripling returns to the mound tonight still in search of his first win. He is just one start removed from his near no-hitter last week in San Francisco. Stripling was fantastic mixing fastballs and nasty off-speed offerings to no-hit the Giants for 7.1 innings. Unfortunately pitch count limits, the Dodger bullpen and Dave Roberts ruined his night. This time he gets a chance for redemption in the…

Dodgers Look To Beat Up on Rubby De La Rosa Again

Alex Wood
April 13, 2016

Whenever the Dodgers are feeling blue they usually end up facing former farmhand Rubby De La Rosa and they beat the crap out of him. Nothing makes us feel better than knocking around De La Rosa again. The Dodgers always demolish him. I’m sure they’re licking their chops right now and thanking the Dbacks for sending him out tonight. The Dodgers just have to figure out a way to keep…

Dodger Bullpen Blows Vin Scully’s Final Opening Day

Kike Hernandez
April 12, 2016

“It’s still early” “The guys need time to gel” “Give them some time, they’ll figure it out” “Spending money on relief pitchers is stupid” “The Dodgers have to cut payroll” “It’s Rick Honeycutt’s fault” “It’s Dave Robert’s fault” “These guys have loads of potential” “They’re good pitchers, they’re just struggling right now” “Games in April aren’t as important as games in September” “It’s Andrew Friedman’s fault”   Ok maybe the…

Dodgers Return Home Against Snakes

Howie Kendrick
April 12, 2016

The Dodgers return home today with Vin Scully Avenue renamed in time for this afternoon’s opening day game against the Dbacks. The Dodgers had a 4-3 road trip, which seems like a decent trip except for the fact that they were embarrassed in San Francisco and the pitching staff is awful. The Dodgers blew leads in all three losses to the Giants while giving up about a hundred runs. With the Dodgers…

How Should The Dodgers Feel After The First Road Trip?

Joc Pederson
April 11, 2016

Okay so that road trip had some ups, some downs, and almost nothing in the middle. The wins were either dominant and exciting (shutout sweep of San Diego/coming back for Kershaw) or brutally frustrating (blowing leads in all of the losses at the phonebooth). All in all, a 4-3 road trip, coming back to Dodger stadium, winning 4 out of every 7 road games is a desirable outcome, but lets…

Dodgers Finally Win in Phony Book Park

Charlie Culberson
April 9, 2016

The Dodgers finally defeated the Giants 3-2 in ten innings on Saturday afternoon. Of course I was at work and didn’t get to see it, but I still enjoyed it in my mind. Knowing the Dodgers won made the day much better, even if I couldn’t see it. The Dodgers were able to at least save face by salvaging one win in this series. Unfortunately the Dodgers were struck with…

Clayton Kershaw vs. Madison Bumgarner Heavyweight Fight

Clayton Kershaw
April 9, 2016

First off, I would like to apologize to Ross Stripling and his family for the steaming pile of crap that Andrew Friedman thinks is the Dodger bullpen. Ross you did great and you deserved a better fate in that game. It’s too bad that you couldn’t have at least gotten the win. You have a long and successful career ahead of you. Of course I understand the Dodger’s decision to…

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…

Dodgers/Padres Series Review

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…

Dodgers Enter Lion’s Den, Alex Wood vs. Jake Peavy in Game 1

April 7, 2016

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…
