Should Mattingly rest his regulars for the final three games?

It happened last year – the Dodgers clinched the NL West with nine regular season games remaining, during which time Dodgers manager Don Mattingly gave many of  his regulars some time off. And while no one will argue that a couple of these guys really needed some much-needed the rest, guys like Andre Ethier, Hanley […]

Billingsley has sights set on spring training return Dodgers right-hander hopes to begin throwing by Thanksgiving

When Dodgers right-hander Chad Billingsley underwent Tommy John surgery in April of 2013, he had hopes of returning to the Dodgers starting rotation around June of this year. But after only one rehab start with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes on June 8, Billingsley was shut down for elbow discomfort. The cause was a partially torn flexor tendon […]

Kershaw does it all to clinch NL West title

We’ve seen it before. In fact, we saw it on opening day 2013 against these very same Giants. Clayton Kershaw was pitching a shutout, but so too was Giants ace Matt Cain who was relieved by right-hander George Kontos in the bottom of the eighth inning. The Dodgers had managed only four hits off of Cain. Enough, thought […]

The Dodgers may be onto something with this ‘Bullpen Game’ thing

The idea was to save their three best (and healthy) starting pitchers for the upcoming series against the Giants at Dodger Stadium, but what they accomplished may end up saving the Dodgers bacon in the postseason – utilizing the bullpen as a combined number four or number five starter. “It’s going to be interesting, that’s […]

Struggling bullpen could mean short postseason for Dodgers

It’s bad enough that the Dodgers will probably have to enter the postseason with only two-thirds of their starting rotation healthy, but the thought of going up against teams like the Cardinals, Nationals, Pirates or even the Giants with their current bullpen is absolutely terrifying. It is unreasonable (if not impossible) to think that Clayton […]
