Taylor acquisition could be a bad sign for Kiké Hernandez

Let’s be brutally honest here. Before his dramatic bottom of the eighth inning pinch-hit solo home run on Sunday afternoon that turned a 1-0 deficit into a 1-1 tie and eventual 2-1 Dodgers win, Dodgers super utility Kiké Hernandez has been … well … awful. I mean, in the 61 games in which he has appeared this […]

Friedman can ‘definitely see’ Urias moving to Dodgers bullpen

Prior to Friday night’s exciting 10th-inning 3-2 walk-off win by the Dodgers over the Milwaukee Brewers, Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman sat down with AM 570 LA Sports radio host David Vassegh for a one-on-one interview. And though the Dodgers top exec discussed a variety of hot topics with Vassegh, none was hotter than what the […]

Dads played big role in development of their Dodger sons

There is little doubt that athletes talented enough to play the game of baseball at its highest level didn’t get there on their own. When you consider that there are only 750 players in Major League Baseball, it’s probably safe to say that most of them started playing when they were five years old (or younger). It’s also safe […]

Kershaw no-hitter was a matter of ‘when’ not ‘if’

(Reposted from June 19, 2014) There isn’t anyone, not one single person who follows the game of baseball even casually who didn’t expect this night to come. Clayton Kershaw pitched a no-hitter. And but for a throwing error by Hanley Ramirez on a very difficult play in the seventh inning it would have been a perfect […]

6-17-16 Turner Walk-Off 1B FP

Have a game Justin Turner

Take your pick: hot, red hot, white hot, blazing hot, smoking hot. But whichever adjective you choose, just be sure that it precedes the noun Justin Turner who, on Friday night, was hotter than the postgame fireworks at Dodger Stadium. In a game that played out much more difficult than it should have for the […]

Dodgers offensive nightmare continues

It’s a statistic that is absolutely shocking; one that leaves you saying “How is this even possible?” When the Dodgers score exactly six runs … six of them, they are an unbelievable 1-5 this season. (h/t to @RyanWaltonSBN for that statistic). The Dodgers scored six runs on Thursday night … and they lost. Oh sure, it’s easy to […]

A little-known fact about the newest Dodger

The date was April 13, 2012. It was a Friday night – yes, Friday the 13th. The Dodgers were playing those pesky San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium – the same San Diego Padres who always seem to be involved in unusual games with the Dodgers. (Who can forget that historic four-consecutive four-home-run game – […]
