Puig disappoints fans in Home Run Derby

To say that Dodger fans were disappointed with Yasiel Puig’s Home Run Derby performance last night would be a gross understatement. In fact, his lightening fast elimination in the first round had Twitter buzzing immediately after his seven and out/three minutes of infamy (if it was even that long) begging that no Dodger ever be allowed […]

Matheny picks the second best guy to start the All-Star Game Kershaw gets ASG start snub - again

Perhaps it should come as no surprised that the guy who finished second in the 2013 World Series (i.e. – the loser) selected the second best pitcher in the National League to start the 2014 All-Star Game tomorrow night at Target Field in Minneapolis. Granted, as the manager of the National League All-Star team it […]

There’s pitching, and then there’s the Dodgers pitching

With major league baseball now enjoying its all-to-brief All-Star break (brief except for baseball fans, that is), there are some pretty compelling numbers when it comes to the Dodgers starting rotation.

Dodgers inability to score runs late could be their demise

When your starting line-up has names like Yasiel Puig, Hanley Ramirez, Adrian Gonzalez, Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier in it, you would think that opposing pitchers would want to run and hide. But the truth of the matter is, if an opposing team can take a lead into the eighth inning, the Dodgers are toast. […]

Carl Crawford 10-16-13 HR FP

Carl Crawford – Odd man out or the path of least resistance?

Ned Colletti and Don Mattingly have been lucky. Over the course of the past season and a half the Dodgers have had four All-Star outfielders vying for three outfield spots – Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Yasiel Puig and Carl Crawford. It’s actually five when you add in utility outfielder/infielder Scott Van Slyke. But during that […]

7-10-14 Kershaw 1st Pitch FP

Everybody was concerned about Kershaw’s streak but Kershaw

It was brief, it was concise, it was direct and is was pure Clayton Kershaw when he was asked if he was disappointed that his consecutive scoreless innings streak ended at 41.2 in Thursday night’s 2-1 complete game win over the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium. “I was disappointed I gave up a homer,” said […]

Kershaw on verge of re-entering Cy Young Award race

There will be a lot going at Dodger Stadium tonight. Not only it is Hello Kitty Travel Mug giveaway night which all but guarantees a sellout crowd, but Clayton Kershaw will most likely return to the race for his second consecutive Cy Young Award and his third in four seasons. Kershaw, who missed six starts for inflammation […]
