Bullpen not to blame for Dodgers struggles

When things are going well for the Dodgers, their bullpen for the most part goes unnoticed. Oh sure, Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen gets a lot of ink, as well he should – he currently leads the majors in saves with nine and hasn’t blown a save since August 23 of last year. Since then he […]

Maeda respectfully bests his childhood hero

It was subtle and if you weren’t looking directly at him when he did it, you probably missed it. It was in the top of the seventh inning of Thursday night’s game between the Dodgers and Marlins at Dodger Stadium. At the time, Japanese superstar pitcher Kenta Maeda and the Dodgers were clinging to a […]

Gordon suspension causing wide range of emotions

I had just stopped to grab a late bite to eat after having just witnessed the Miami Marlins sweep the Dodgers in four games – the first time one had done so to the other in history. As I was sitting in my car wolfing down a Jumbo Jack, my cell phone started going crazy […]

Dodgers offensive woes continue

The good news is that the Dodgers starting pitching and their bullpen have been – for the most part – very good of late. The bad news is that their offense has been… well… awful. We’re talking 15 for 104 (.144) in their last three game with only two home runs awful; 0 for 13 with runners […]

Roberts unhappy with Dodgers recent at-bats

When your team team goes 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position and leaves 15 runners stranded on base over the course of two games, and your starting pitcher puts up most of your team’s offense, it’s understandable that your manager might not be too happy about it. Yet this is exactly what happened […]

Ryu set to resume comeback efforts

It’s a question that Dodgers manager Dave Roberts usually gets asked two or three times a week, sometimes more. “What’s the status of Hyun-jin Ryu?” And for the past several weeks Roberts’ answer has been the same. “He hasn’t resumed throwing yet.” The reason for the question is obvious, at least for Dodger fans who have […]

Edwin Rios debuts with Loons

Third baseman Edwin Rios was selected by the Dodgers in the sixth round of the 2015 First Year Player Draft on June 9th, making him the No. 192 overall pick in the draft. His selection on the one hand might have been a bit surprising for the Dodgers that early in the draft as an infielder […]
