Adam Wainwright FP

Dodgers owe a HUGE Thank You to Cardinals manager Mike Matheny

When St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny selected his favorite son Adam Wainwright to start the 2014 All-Star Game over Clayton Kershaw, baseball fans were livid – and not just Dodger fans. To compound matters, Wainwright later admitted that he intentionally gave retiring Yankees shortstop (and future Hall of Famer) Derek Jeter “a couple pipe shots” – shots […]

In the Dodgers world some days are like that

Sunday was supposed to be a day for me to simply enjoy baseball. My wife left at noon to go to our daughter’s, as they are off on a mother-daughter shopping trip to Bangor, Maine. So, I settled in for a day of relaxing baseball. It turned out to be a little less than relaxing […]

If the NL Cy Young award voting were today the winner might not be who you think

Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw is the best pitcher in the game today – you know it, I know it, baseball experts and analysts know it, everybody knows it. But if the 2014 National League Cy Young award voting were to be held today, right now, on Monday, August 18, 2014, Clayton Kershaw, arguably the greatest […]

Are the Dodgers preparing for a postseason without Juan Uribe?

UPDATED: Sunday, August 17, 2014 at 12:45 PM * When Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe was pulled from Friday night’s game for a strained right hamstring strain, there wasn’t a Dodger fan alive who wasn’t thinking ‘Oh no, not again’ – and why wouldn’t they? It was the same hamstring that he first strained on […]

Darwin Barney - Brett Davis FP

Darwin Barney happy to be a Dodger – and he really means it

It’s to be expected. When a player joins a new team, especially one in contention for a playoff berth, he’s going to tell you that he’s happy to be with his new team. Heck, he might even tell you this if he’s traded to a non-contending team. I mean, what else is he going to […]

The silver lining to Friday night’s disappointing game

It’s there is you look hard enough – the Good amongst the Bad and the Ugly in Friday night’s painful 6-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. It was a Dodgers ‘go from ahead’ loss to give the Brewers a ‘come from behind’ win. The Dodgers nursed a precarious 2-0 lead into the top of the […]

8-13-14 Ryu Injury FP

Correia likely to get Tuesday start in place of Ryu

It’s a phenomena that happens quite frequently – a struggling pitcher gets cut from a team, gets picked up by a new team and flourishes. The Dodgers saw it with the likes of Vicente Padilla, Brett Tomko, Aaron Harang, Chris Capuano, Ricky Nolasco and Edinson Volquez, among others. There’s no rhyme or reason to it, […]

7-12-14 Ellis K FP

How much longer do the Dodgers stay with A.J. Ellis?

Everybody loves Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis – the Dodgers front office loves him, general manager Ned Colletti loves him, field manager Don Mattingly loves him, his teammates love him, the fans love him and even the oft critical media loves him. He is, after all, Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw’s best friend. But no amount of […]

Sir Paul’s concert at Dodger Stadium forces repair work for Sir Puig

It’s probably safe to say that when Sir Paul McCartney performed before a sell out crowd at Dodger Stadium last Saturday night, he had no idea that the stage on which he stood was damaging the very center field grass that Sir Yasiel Puig will be patrolling on Friday night when the Dodgers return home […]
