7-30-14 Vin Scully 01 FP

Dodger Hall of Famer Don Sutton shares a Vin Scully memory

Long before the days of SportsNet LA or Fox Sports West or PrimeTicket, and even long before Dodger games were aired on local or network television, if you wanted to catch a Dodger game you either had to drive to Dodger Stadium or you listened to the games on the radio which, of course, were called by Hall […]

A PR Department’s nightmare

It has happened many times before in the past and it will undoubtedly happen many times again in the future – an MLB team plans a huge promotional item giveaway around the July 31 trade deadline and the giveaway items are there but the player is not. Such is the case for the Oakland Athletics, […]

7-30-14 Kemp Single FP

Has Matt Kemp found his last missing tools?

The year 2011 is one that most Dodger fans will probably remember forever. It was the year that Matt Kemp had 40 stolen bases and 39 home runs and was cheated out of the NL MVP Award – literally. Many baseball experts and analysts called Kemp the best player in the game at the time and […]

So which is it? Trade Kemp or don’t trade him?

Dodger fans are a fickle bunch. We’re spoiled, we want our cake and eat it too, and at times we’re willing to go to war in support of our Boys in Blue – and we love every minute of it. We love the never-ending cheap shots at the Dodgers by the national media (who are usually wrong); […]

Dodgers on a quest for four… again

If you would have told people at the beginning of the 2014 season that the Los Angeles Dodgers, the team that went on a historic 42-8 run just last season with winning streaks of six games, four games, five games, six games, four games, five games and ended with a 10-game winning streak, would be without even […]

Kenley Jansen - Ben Margot FP

Kenley Jansen – MLB’s most underrated closer

When the ‘save’ became an official MLB statistic back in the ’70s, it brought with it an enigma – the closer. It also brought with it the dubious ‘blown save’ statistic, for which many an MLB career has abruptly ended. Without question Mariano Rivera and Trevor Hoffman personified the closer role. They were and will perhaps always […]

Dodgers must continue to play with same sense of urgency that they did against Giants

When the Dodgers took the field at AT&T Park on Friday evening for game one of their three-game series against the Giants trailing the Hated Ones by half a game in the NL West standings, Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully said “It’s not a do-or-die game, but it’s a big one.” The same could […]
