Jeremy Kehrt – Thursday’s other Kid-K

It is difficult, if not impossible, to wrap your mind around anything other than how absolutely dominating Clayton Kershaw was in his spring training debut on Thursday afternoon against the Chicago White Sox at Camelback Ranch.

As most baseball fans know, spring training games are often referred to as “meaningless” games – especially by the media. Yet if one were to ask the players themselves just how meaningless these games really are, they would probably get an entirely different take on them. Take Erik Bedard, for instance. For a guy who […]

Life begins today Dodgers kickoff 2015 spring training season today at 12:05 pm PT

A lot has happened since the final out of Game-4 the 2014 National League Division Series – that dreadful afternoon of October 7, 2014 when the 90-72 St. Louis Cardinals beat the 94-68 Los Angeles Dodgers to advance to the NLCS. Just like that, on a routine 6-4 force out off the bat of Dodgers […]

If you were fortunate enough to see Hall of Fame manager Tommy Lasorda in person any time over the past decade, you undoubtedly noticed that there was always someone with him. That someone was Colin Gunderson, the Dodgers former Press Coordinator and Assistant to Tommy Lasorda. And when I say always, I mean always. In fact, […]

I remember it like it was yesterday. In fact, I even remember the exact date – Wednesday, March 4, 2009. The Dodgers had just started their first spring training camp away from Vero Beach at their beautiful new facility at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona. The trees were little more than sticks being held up […]

The most non-breaking breaking news of spring training – Kershaw named 2015 Opening Day starter

It could have gone without saying but it had to be said – Clayton Kershaw will be the Dodgers Opening Day starter on April 6 against the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium. “That’s our plan,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly told reporters on a rainy Monday morning at Camelback Ranch. Seriously, who else would it […]

Another childhood hero gone – Minnie Miñoso dies at 90

Having been born a Dodger fan, I didn’t pay too much attention to non-Dodgers as a youngster. But like most kids growing up in the ’50s and ’60s, I had a respectable baseball card collection. In fact, I saved up and spent most of my allowance (25 cents a week) on baseball cards. I couldn’t […]

Mattingly names starters for first two spring training games

On Saturday, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly named his starting pitchers for the first two spring training games and their order may surprise you a bit. Although the order in which starting pitchers appear is basically meaningless early in the spring games, Mattingly announced that soon-to-be 36-year-old left-hander Erik Bedard will be his spring training Opening […]
