9-1-15 Joc Pederson HR FP

Is Joc Pederson fixed? With help from McGwire, Dodger rookie appears to have found (and fixed) the problem

There isn’t a Dodger fan on the planet who isn’t familiar with Dodgers center fielder Joc Pederson’s meteoric rise at the beginning of the season and his even more meteoric fall from grace which, on Tuesday night, landed him as low in the Dodgers lineup as one can get – ninth. But through all of […]

8-29-15 Vin Scully 1 FP

Vin Scully’s greatest memory remains in Brooklyn Hall of Fame broadcaster says 1955 World Series is still his fondest memory

It is a staggering fact – unbelievable, in fact. The Dodgers franchise has been in existence for exactly 132 years, having been founded in 1883 by real estate magnate and baseball enthusiast Charles Byrne, who convinced his brother-in-law Joseph Doyle and casino operator Ferdinand Abell to start the team with him. And for exactly one-half of that […]

Being no-hit (again) not the biggest concern for Dodgers

In the big scheme of things, being the victim of a no-hitter – even a highly controversial one – isn’t all that big of a deal for the Dodgers. In fact, even though it was the second time that the Dodgers have been no-hit in nine days and was witnessed by millions nationally on ESPN’s […]

Gage Green FP

Ogden Raptors center fielder Gage Green is on fire

Ogden Raptors center fielder Gage Green is the hottest hitter in the Dodgers minor league system as the 2015 winds down.

8-29-15 Ethier 2 RBI Single FP

Breaking News: Andre Ethier CAN hit lefties 'Captain Clutch' once again proves pundits wrong

As expected, when Dodgers manager Don Mattingly filled out his lineup card for Saturday’s game against Cubs left-hander Jon Lester, he stacked it with mostly right-handed hitters. The only two exceptions were first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and left fielder Carl Crawford. The AGon move was pretty much a no-brainer since primary backup first baseman Scott Van […]

Utley brings much-needed baserunning ‘smarts’ to Dodgers

Baserunning speed is generally not something that is associated with a 36-year-old veteran baseball player and, in fact, is not necessarily one of recently acquired second baseman Chase Utley’s strongest suits. But what Utley lacks in speed he more than makes up for in smarts. Dodger fans watching Friday night’s exciting 4-1 win over the Chicago […]

Vin Announcement FP

Vin Scully to return for 2016 season

It was the annual announcement that every Dodger fan anxiously awaits around this time of year – whether or not 87-year-old Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully would return for one more year or if this would be the year that he would choose to retire to spend his golden years with his wife Sandi and their many grandchildren. But […]

It’s crunch time for the Dodgers

It’s safe to say that with 36 games remaining in the regular season, the brief six-game homestand that the Dodgers kickoff tonight against the Chicago Cubs and then the San Francisco Giants is crucial for the NL West leaders. But it’s even safer to say that with the Dodgers nursing a 2.5-game lead over those same Giants, the […]
