Quakes Cody Bellinger could be the next Corey Seager

Dodgers number one prospect and 2012 first-round draft pick Corey Seager, who celebrated his 21st birthday this past Monday, is a shortstop. Cody Bellinger, who was selected by the Dodgers in the fourth round of the 2013 draft, is a first baseman and an outfielder. But aside from both being 6′ 4″ tall, Corey Seager and Cody Bellinger […]

Does Madison Bumgarner have an anger management issue?

It appears that Madison Bumgarner has an anger management problem. When Dodgers utility infielder / outfielder Alex Guerrero popped out to Giants right fielder Justin Maxwell in the bottom of the seventh inning of Tuesday night’s game, Guerrero was obviously upset with himself for missing a pitch that he felt he could have driven – obvious to […]

Julio Urias – just another night on the farm 19-year-old Mexican phenom capturing attention from around the world

Monday night had all the makings of a slow baseball night for me. Sure, there were many major league and minor league games I could have followed on MLB.com and MiLB.com but they didn’t really wet my appetite. I was looking for a daily dose of Dodger baseball. The Great Lakes Loons and Rancho Cucamonga […]

Broken Arms, a Cup of Coffee, and Julio Urias

The Dodgers starting rotation is now officially broken. With Ryu still weeks away and McCarthy done perhaps until the All-Star break in 2016, the Dodgers are only a brittle Brett Anderson away from a rotation of Kershaw, Greinke and TBA. God can only help us if Greinke’s elbow issue flares up. But the future is bright […]

Yes, Mattingly made the right call

You don’t have to look very hard nor far to find a negative newspaper article, blog post, tweet or other form of written or social media slamming Dodgers manager Don Mattingly. In fact, with his frequent misinformation to the media saying that he’ll do one thing and then doing something completely different – like saying on […]

Mattingly running out of excuses not to play Guerrero

The Dodgers full-time third baseman has hit one home run, one double, has three RBIs, has walked twice and has struck out five times in 45 at-bats. This calculates out to a .244 batting average, a .277 on-base percentage, a .333 slugging percentage for a meager .610 OPS – and this doesn’t include the three […]

Mishandling of Puig injury could prove costly for Dodgers

Although no one knows exactly when Dodgers star outfielder Yasiel Puig injured his left hamstring – the first time, that is – but it most likely happened in the first inning of the April 13 game against the Seattle Mariners when Puig stumbled out of the batters box trying to leg out a grounder to […]

Quakes De Leon strikes out 6 in return from DL

If you look at only the line score from Friday night’s 7-2 loss by the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes to the Lake Elsinore Storm, it appears that Dodgers top-10 pitching prospect Jose De Leon pitched poorly in his first game back from the disabled list. But if you dig deeper into the game recap, you will see that De Leon struck out […]

Behind the scenes at SportsNet LA

With the Time Warner Cable – Comcast merger now officially off the table, a timely resolution to the SportsNet LA – DirecTV conflict seems unlikely anytime soon. But while the powers that be at the highest corporate levels continue to battle one another with no apparent end in sight, there is an old saying that dates back […]
