5-23-16 Kershaw FP

Kershaw continues to make history

Dodger fans, I mean real Dodger fans who do not check the team’s upcoming schedule to determine when 28-year-old left-hander Clayton Kershaw will make his next start and purchase tickets accordingly, are risking missing out on history unfolding before their very eyes.

Scott Griggs FP

Scott Griggs promoted to Tulsa Drillers

If I had been consulted by Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi a few days ago regarding which three players should immediately be promoted in the Dodgers minor league system by Monday I would have selected Julio Urias, Kyle Garlick and Scott Griggs. There may be other worthy candidates for upward movement, such as Tim Locastro […]

Montas makes debut with Tulsa Drillers

Last December the Dodgers engineered a three-way trade in which they sent prospects Scott Schebler, Jose Peraza and Brandon Dixon to the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds in turn sent All-Star third baseman Todd Frazier to the Chicago White Sox leaving many Dodger fans wondering why Andrew Friedman didn’t just complete a two-way trade with the […]

Kenley Jansen FP

Kenley Jansen’s swipe at baseball immortality ends

It was too good to be true and to be perfectly honest, none of us really believed it would happen. Between August 26, 2002 through July 5, 2004, former Dodger and 2003 NL Cy Young award winner Eric Gagne recorded a historic 84 consecutive saves. It was an impossible feat that not only stretched the imagination to its limits, […]

Dodgers left-hander Hyun-jin Ryu made his second rehab start with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes on Friday evening at LoanMart Field.

Chin-hui Tsao FP

Dodgers may want to reconsider sending Tsao back to OKC

Although it was only one inning in a rather lopsided 7-4 game, hard-throwing 34-year-old Taiwanese right-hander Chin-hui Tsao was able to accomplish in that one inning on Thursday night what oft-troubled Dodgers reliever Chris Hatcher was unable to accomplish in one-third of an inning – get through it without allowing a run. In fact, Tsao […]

Trayce Thompson FP 1

Broken bats Dodgers currently have no position players hitting above .300

It’s a given that every true, die-hard Dodger fan checks the NL West standings religiously. Unfortunately, in doing so, we are all aware that the reign of good fortune that the Dodgers enjoyed over the first six weeks of the season where a .500-ish record has been good enough to remain at or near first place in […]
