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…

As the ESPN Magazine article that started it all, pointed out, Mr. Harper wants to become the Most Interesting Man in Baseball. He wants to be a big pimp daddy in a game that was once played on green meadows in the park, on Sundays. The Los Angeles Dodgers have…

Dodgers Run Differential Projected To Be Better Than 2015

Joc Pederson
March 1, 2016

I wanted to talk to you guys today about the importance of run differentials. We see projections for every club each season and I normally take those with a grain of salt. It’s hard to predict what a team or player will do during a 162 game baseball season because baseball is hard to predict. Anything can happen and you never know. However the math geeks have specific formulas they…

All Dodgers are now present and accountable at Camelback Ranch as spring training is in full tilt. We’re just about a week away from real live baseball being played.

There’s not a whole lot going on in camp…

Could Corey Seager Bat Lead-off?

Corey Seager
February 19, 2016

Predicting and making out the lineup for the upcoming season is always the toughest job for any manager. Newly hired Dave Roberts will have 6 weeks of spring to decide what the lineup will look like on opening day. The Dodgers don’t have a prototypical lead-off guy. As I’ve discussed before, the Dodgers need a guy that can get on base frequently at the top of the lineup. He doesn’t…

Did The Dodgers Improve or Decline This Winter?

Corey Seager
February 13, 2016

You know there is nothing going on when the main headline this week is about equipment trucks driving Dodger gear to Glendale, Arizona. Rest assured the trucks were filled with Tommy Lasorda bobbleheads. We can’t begin spring training without those. Seriously guys, if there are no Tommy bobbleheads then we have to close the gates until they arrive. No bobbleheads no spring training! All kidding aside with spring training a…

In about nine days spring training will begin for the Dodgers. The first couple of weeks of spring training are the most boring. There are no games going on and not much else.

The Dodgers Need a Lead-off Hitter

Pederson1
February 2, 2016

It shouldn’t come as a shock when I tell you that the Dodgers didn’t have a good lead-off hitter last season. Times have changed in MLB. Less and less teams are using the classic prototypical lead-off guy these days. You know the type. The little speedster that gets on base a lot, steals bases (Brett Butler was the perfect lead-off hitter) and is generally a pest for opposing clubs. Normally…

February 1, 2016

Yasiel Puig recently made headlines by declaring he would be ceasing his trademark bat flips much to the dismay of many Dodgers fans. Puig’s bat flips have been the focal point of many discussions about the sanctity of the game and emotional outbursts on the field. Some people believe that they disrespect the game and that Puig should be “playing the game the right way”. Despite what boring people and Cardinals fans…
