Breaking News: Andre Ethier CAN hit lefties 'Captain Clutch' once again proves pundits wrong

As expected, when Dodgers manager Don Mattingly filled out his lineup card for Saturday’s game against Cubs left-hander Jon Lester, he stacked it with mostly right-handed hitters. The only two exceptions were first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and left fielder Carl Crawford. The AGon move was pretty much a no-brainer since primary backup first baseman Scott Van […]

Utley brings much-needed baserunning ‘smarts’ to Dodgers

Baserunning speed is generally not something that is associated with a 36-year-old veteran baseball player and, in fact, is not necessarily one of recently acquired second baseman Chase Utley’s strongest suits.

Did Mattingly make right call by removing Alex Wood? Dodger fans question manager's decision costing young left-hander shot at first career shutout

The Dodgers won on Tuesday evening and any way you slice it, that’s the bottom line – especially when clinging to a minuscule 2.5-game lead over their division rival San Francisco Giants.

Dbacks hoping for fierce Dodgers-Giants battle

Remember the Arizona Diamondbacks? You know, the franchise with the owner who will not allow fans of other teams to wear non-Dbacks clothing behind home plate because he doesn’t want them to appear on local television, which is probably one of the many reasons why his franchise is ranked 24th in the MLB in attendance this […]
