Jim Gilliam – the Dodgers first utility player

As a youngster growing up on the east coast of Canada in the 1950’s I fell in love with the Brooklyn Dodgers. There was just so much to love – Duke, Campy, Jackie, Newk, the two Carl’s, Gil, Pee Wee and the list goes on. Don Drysdale was just starting to come into his own […]

Puig Throw FP

Puig’s throw a thing of beauty

There has been a lot of discussion as to whether or not the absolutely incredible throw by Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig to nail Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story at third base on Friday night was the greatest throw in MLB history.

Clayton McCullough FP

Clayton McCullough – moving young minor league players along

On Wednesday evening I tuned in early to the Great Lakes Loons game so I could catch the pre-game interview with Loons play-by-play announcer Chris Vosters and his guest. I had no idea who his guest might be but was surprised and pleaded that it was Clayton McCullough who was signed as the Dodgers Minor […]

Grandal dialed in after beginning season on disabled list

I’ll be the first to admit that when Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told the media that catcher Yasmani Grandal was going to begin the 2016 season on the disabled list, I said to myself “Here we go again.” I mean let’s face it, Grandal has given the impression of being somewhat injury prone since being acquired […]

Kenley Jansen closing in on Dodgers history Dodgers closer 13 saves away from setting new franchise record

It was an electric time, perhaps even the most electric time in Dodger Stadium history. It wasn’t Steve Finley’s incredible bottom of the ninth inning walk-off grand slam that turned a 3-0 deficit into a division-clinching 7-3 win over the hated Giants on the second-to-last game of the 2004 season. It wasn’t Manny Ramirez’s incredible pinch-hit grand […]
