Dodgers Need Clayton Kershaw, Kenley Jansen, Rich Hill And a Little Luck To Win NLCS

The Dodgers were historically pathetic on Thursday evening after their 8-4 loss to the Cubs in game 5 of the NLCS. The Dodgers lost game 4 by a 10-2 score, meaning they were outscored 18-6 in games 4 and 5. During perhaps the most important games of the season the Dodgers went

Ross Stripling’s Magical Night Ruined By “Bullpen”

Dodgers Preparing For a Wonderfully Boring Spring Training

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. Nothing to do but watch the players hop around and do jumping jacks, play catch, and take

Did Joe Blanton Benefit From Francisco Cervelli’s Excellent Pitch Framing in 2015?

Never have so many words been written about Joe Blanton within the last week. The Dodgers recently announced the signing of the 35-year old veteran hurler to a one-year four million dollar contract laden heavily with performance incentives. The deal initially seemed horrifying to many of us who had to
