Although it was already somewhat unlikely that Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu was going to see action in the first round of playoffs anyway, he did nothing to bolster his chances on Friday night against the Colorado Rockies at mile-high Coors Field, where the Rockies routed the Dodgers 9-1 in the third-to-final game of the 2017 […]

The Throw version 2.0

Can you imagine what might have happened if Hall of Famer Babe Ruth, Yankees legend Roger Maris or even confirmed PED user Barry Bonds had 20 fewer games in which to pursue their single-season home run records?

Roberts tried to save Baez’s career but Pedro would have no part of that

It was exactly what every Dodger fan on the planet did not want to hear from Dodgers broadcaster Joe Davis on the SportsNet LA television broadcast of Tuesday night’s game between the Dodgers and Phillies at Citizens Bank Ballpark in Philadelphia, or from Charlie Steiner on the AM 570 Sports LA radio broadcast of the […]
