The Dodgers may be onto something with this ‘Bullpen Game’ thing

The idea was to save their three best (and healthy) starting pitchers for the upcoming series against the Giants at Dodger Stadium, but what they accomplished may end up saving the Dodgers bacon in the postseason – utilizing the bullpen as a combined number four or number five starter. “It’s going to be interesting, that’s […]

Struggling bullpen could mean short postseason for Dodgers

It’s bad enough that the Dodgers will probably have to enter the postseason with only two-thirds of their starting rotation healthy, but the thought of going up against teams like the Cardinals, Nationals, Pirates or even the Giants with their current bullpen is absolutely terrifying. It is unreasonable (if not impossible) to think that Clayton […]

Clayton Kershaw – The difference between goodness and greatness

When Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw walked off the mound on Friday afternoon after the fifth inning he was absolutely furious – not at anyone or anything else but with himself.

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?

If Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully said it, consider it the gospel truth. “If Clayton Kershaw hadn’t missed those five starts at the beginning of the season, he’d already be a 20-game winner.” You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who disagrees with this, at least anyone who knows and understands the game well.

A missed opportunity

Did you ever say something that you later regretted and wished you could take back? Chances are pretty good that Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong is wishing that very thing right about now. On Thursday afternoon, the day before the first game of a crucial three-game series against the Dodgers at AT&T Park, the 37-year-old Giants […]

Next seven games crucial for Dodgers

Although the Dodgers undoubtedly left San Francisco feeling really good about taking two of three from their archrival Giants this past weekend (as they should), they are still a long way from the finish line. Standing in their way are two teams who have already been eliminated from postseason play; two teams who will finish […]
