Too Good Not to Share

This video clip ran in the L.A. Times on Thursday and it is simply too incredible not to share: Dodger Players Honor Vin Scully “He knows things about me that I don’t even know about myself.” – Matt Kemp Priceless.

Overshadowed by Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier is putting up MVP numbers of his own. Ethier knocked in Kemp from first base with this double to right/center to collect his NL leading 44th RBI. Unfortunately, this is also when Kemp re-injured his left hamstring which landed him back on the DL.

MVP Lost? – Maybe Not

It’s simple really. Cold, painfully, depressingly simple. Matt Kemp will not be the 2012 NL MVP. Matt Kemp will not go 50-50 or even 40-40 this season. Matt Kemp probably will not play in the 2012 All-Start Game and he more than likely will not win a Gold Glove or a Silver Slugger award this […]

Matt Kemp scores from first base on a double by Andre Ethier but it was a very costly run, as Kemp re-injured his left hamstring in the process. All indications are that Kemp will be lost for up to 4 weeks.

Kemp Re-injures Hamstring – Return to DL Imminent

In only his second game back from the disabled list, Dodger center fielder re-injured his left hamstring while running from first to home on an Andre Ethier double.

Mattingly Shakes Up Batting Order

Dodger manager Don Mattingly made several adjustments to his line-up for Wednesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers, some anticipated, some not so much. With Dodger center fielder Matt Kemp now back in the line-up and Bobby Abreu starting in left field (thus relegating Tony Gwynn Jr. to the bench), Mattingly moved hot hitting second baseman Elian Herrera into […]

Momentum Changers

Each night, former MLB manager and current DodgerTalk co-host Kevin Kennedy has a segment on his radio show in which he identifies three or four moments during the just-concluded game that were momentum changers. I have to admit that when Kennedy, who also managed in the Dodgers minor league system, first added this segment to […]

Dodgers Release Photos of Upcoming Vin Scully Bobble Head

It is a well know fact that Hall of Fame Dodger broadcaster Vin Scully has adamantly opposed having a bobble head in his likeness released, this in spite of the cries from thousands of fans demanding one for decades. In fact, during Scully’s incredible 63-year career with the organization, the humble legend has declined numerous […]

Down on the Farm – Quakes Crack the Nuts

I know… I know… it’s a dumb title and one that has undoubtedly been used countless times, but what else can you say about a 12-2 shellacking, which is what the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes did to the Modesto Nuts (Rockies) on Monday afternoon. The Quakes collected 16 hits on the day with every Quakes player in […]

Nathan Eovaldi, seen here signing an autograph for a young fan, had an outstanding spring but there wasn't room for him in the Dodgers' starting rotation so he began the 2012 season at Double-A Chattanooga.

Dodgers Place Lilly on 15-Day Disabled List – Call Eovaldi Up from Chattanooga

The Dodgers have placed left-handed pitcher Ted Lilly on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to May 24) with left shoulder inflammation and recalled left-hander Michael Antonini to fill Lilly’s roster spot as a possible long reliever for Monday evening’s game, but he was not needed. The Dodgers then (apparently) sent Antonini back to Triple-A Albuquerque […]
