Is Don Mattingly Trying to Build the “Dodgers East” in Miami?

In case you haven't noticed, the Miami Marlins, led on the field by former Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, have a bad case of "L.A. creep", and are quietly transforming into the Dodgers East. When Mattingly and the Dodgers parted ways, one of the first things he tried to do was bring

Dodgers Go With Rookies, Urias, Stewart Against Cubs

If the trade of nice guy A.J. Ellis meant anything, and it did, you would think that trading away the one guy that that had the most knowledge of the pitching staff would probably be a bad idea. I’m not blaming Saturday’s 6-4 loss on the trade but did Carlos Ruiz

Ross Stripling and All-Righty Lineup vs. Boston

Scott Kazmir getting bombed in last night’s 9-0 blowout loss to the Red Sox was about as exciting as watching paint dry. I’m no Nostradamus but it doesn’t take a clairvoyant to figure out that Kazmir was going to get lit up like a Christmas tree. The next guy to get lit

No Moore Lefties: Matt Moore Shuts Down Dodgers

Left handed pitchers continue to be the Dodger’s Achilles heel as fellow southpaw Matt Moore shutdown the Dodger bats by tossing 6.2 innings of one-run ball as the last place Tampa Bay Rays beat the Dodgers by a 3-1 score. The Rays will gladly take a series split as the

Matt Moore vs. Brandon McCarthy in Afternoon Special

The Dodgers held on by the skin of their teeth on Tuesday evening to beat the feisty Rays by a score of 3-2. Two errors, (One by possible future Dodger Chris Archer) led to two unearned runs and Yasmani Grandal’s bomb was just enough to give the Dodgers the win

Dodgers Face NLCS Nemesis

My pregame predictions were correct, and it was indeed time for Stephen Strasburg to lose as the Dodgers knocked him around early to take the series in Washington. Justin Turner slugged two home runs and youngster Julio Urias pitched 4 effective innings. Adam Liberatore picked up his second win this season as the

We Better Not See The All-Righty Lineup Again Today

I missed a lot of news on Tuesday afternoon while I was at work as the Dodgers were defeating the Nationals 8-4 in the series opener. The Dodgers were dealt more injury blows as Hyun-jin Ryu and reliever Casey Fien were placed on the disabled list. For Ryu the news is anything but surprising.

Yasiel Puig, Dodgers Punt Away Ninth-Inning Rally

I had a perfect recap all written up for this game when it was 6-0 Arizona in the top of the ninth inning. I use the term "perfect" loosely of course. However the Dodgers rallied to score 5 runs over the final two frames (Including 3 runs in the ninth)

Dodgers Will Try Not To Look Gift Horse in The Mouth in Rubber Game

I mean when a club is trying to gift you a win, you take it. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. The Dodgers just couldn't get out of their own way on Saturday. The Dbacks did their best to try and give away Saturday night’s game to the Dodgers.

Dodgers Look For More Home Success, Bettis Counters Kazmir

The Dodgers officially placed Clayton Kershaw and Joc Pederson on the 15-day disabled list on Friday afternoon. The opening game of the home stand was the first day of A.K. also known as life after Kershaw. It’s tough and makes me want to break furniture but the Dodgers were able

Kershaw Leads The Charge For Dodgers in The Lion’s Den

The Dodgers will open up an important three game series against the Giants in the lion’s den of At&t Park on Friday evening. The Dodgers still are unable to hit at all, scoring just 5 runs in the previous three game series against the Rockies. The Dodgers now rank 27th

Get Thirsty Dodgers! Norris Vs. Kershaw in Game 2

The Dodgers slugged four home runs on Friday evening that included three from Corey Seager to defeat the Braves 4-2. The Braves are the worst club in the National league of course, but still a win is a win. Beggars can't be choosers. This is a good time to fatten up on

Julio Urias Returns, Dodgers Hope For Series Split

The Dodgers played percentage baseball in game three of their four game series against the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday evening and unsurprisingly forfeited the contest which resulted in a predictable 2-1 loss to the northsiders. The Dodgers decided to rest their two biggest offensive threats because a lefty was on the mound

Weary Dodgers Return Home

The Dodgers returned home after holding us hostage for the longest game of our lives. Seven hours and seventeen innings later the boys in blue finally emerged victorious by scoring four runs in the top of the seventeenth inning to defeat San Diego. It was Yasiel Puig’s two-run single that
