Puig makes adjustment to the adjustment New batting stance is paying huge dividends

It was impossible to miss. From the day that Yasiel Puig made his major league debut on June 3, 2013 he has always stood off the plate – way off the plate. His thought undoubtedly was that doing so would allow him to square up on pitches inside and pull the ball, and it worked well […]

On the bright side…

The only thing worse than losing to a bad last place team is losing bad to a last place team – and the Dodgers did exactly that on Wednesday afternoon. But rather than dwell on the 16-2 shellacking that the Dodgers took at the hands of the Colorado Rockies in what was arguable the worst game […]

Los Angeles Dodgers at San Francisco Giants

Kershaw likely to come up short in strikeout race – So what?

There was something for everybody in Dodgers 17-0 rout of Giants

If you are into baseball history, like seeing baseball records broken, like baseball rivalries, like a lot of offense, like great pitching, like seeing MLB debuts, like seeing guys get their first MLB hit, like seeing players comeback from lengthy disabled list stints, like seeing sons of former MLB players or just like exciting baseball, then […]

Bases loaded – A recipe for disaster for the Dodgers

“You know, the Dodgers, when you look at it, are a questionable first-place team. It’s really a shock to realize how poorly they have played with the bases loaded. You expect a heck of a lot more, to be honest, from a first-place team.” This is not a quote from a major league manager or […]
