Dodgers Swept by Angels, Look Terrible

Freeway Series
April 2, 2016

These games don’t count. That’s what we gotta keep telling ourselves after the Dodgers lost the finale of the Freeway series to the Angels by an 8-1 score. The Dodgers were easily swept and looked pathetic.  Alex Wood got bombed, and the club only scored one run again. It’s almost as if we never left 2015. You know I want to give Alex Wood a chance, and trust me I…

Surprise! Dodgers Announce Ross Stripling as The Fifth Starter

Ross Stripling
April 2, 2016

Surprise! The Dodgers shocked everyone by announcing that they will be giving the fifth starter spot to rookie right hander Ross Stripling. This is not an april fool’s joke either. With Mike Bolsinger on the shelf battling an oblique injury and Brett Anderson more useless than ever, the Dodgers were expected to probably give the fifth starter job to right hander Carlos Frias, or Zach Lee. I guess the Dodgers didn’t have…

Did Zach Lee Make His Case To Be The Fifth Starter?

Zach Lee
March 26, 2016

It’s a free-for-all in the race to be the fifth Dodger starter, and anybody’s guess about who’s in the lead. Tonight Zach Lee went to the mound against the White Sox with the high hopes that he’ll be able to convince skipper Dave Roberts and everyone else he deserves to be that man. Lee threw an uneventful and scoreless first inning; things were looking pretty good for the kid’s chances….

The Dodgers came into Friday night’s exhibition affair with the Giants having lost seven in a row, and 10 of their last 11 games. That doesn’t count Thursday night’s 5-5 tie with the Indians. I know these games don’t count in the standings, but it would be nice to win a couple. Opening day is just ten days away and there is not much time for the club to start…

March 20, 2016

Just before the Dodgers began today’s split-squad games against the Padres and Brewers, the question about who will emerge from Spring Training as the fifth starter became a burning heap of empty jerseys and cleats. The Dodgers optioned Zach Lee back the minors, Brandon Beachy was listed as sitting out for a few games because of elbow tenderness, and the last man standing, Mike Bolsinger, was suddenly scratched from his…

Should The Dodgers Let The Kids Pitch?

Jose De Leon
March 10, 2016

The arthroscopic surgery required to repair the bulging disk in Brett Anderson’s back will keep the left hander out a minimum of 3-5 months. That opens a big hole in the Dodger’s rotation and the club is still deciding who is best to fill it. The Dodgers have fungible options like Mike Bolsinger, Carlos Frias, and Brandon Beachy. You all know how I feel about Bolsinger, and the Dodgers are…

Zach Lee Scheduled to Start on Sunday

Zach Lee
March 5, 2016

With the injury to Brett Anderson the Dodgers are turning their attention to finding his replacement in the starting rotation. The club announced that rookie Zach Lee will start on Sunday against the Giants at Scottsdale Stadium. It’s an interesting choice as Lee is considered to be extremely low on the current depth chart. However it is his scheduled day to pitch anyways. The Dodgers have quite a few candidates…
