Thanks Dodgers, we needed that Dodgers snap 11-game losing skid, but win could prove more important than that

To say that Tuesday night’s 5-3 win over the San Francisco Giants was enormous is a major understatement. In addition to what would have been the Dodgers 12th consecutive loss, it also might have been Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw’s second, something almost unheard-of these days. But in addition to snapping the worst skid in LA […]

Dodgers announce preliminary 2018 schedule

The Dodgers announced their preliminary 2018 regular season schedule on Tuesday. In addition to the usual National League suspects, 2018 will again feature interleague play within the American League West, which is always fun because interested Dodger fans won’t have to travel quite as far should they choose to follow their beloved Dodgers on the […]

From ‘Best Team Ever?’ to ‘Worst Team Ever?’

The good news is that if you stayed up until 2:11 am PT to watch the completion of the very long rain-delayed game between the Dodgers and Giants at AT&T Park in San Francisco and you were also following the live-game chat on Twitter, you enjoyed some incredibly humorous – albeit sarcastic – tweets from […]

Dodgers much-needed spark is already here

At first it was simply one of those things that make you say “huh.” I first noticed it on Monday, September 4 as the Dodgers were taking batting practice before the first of three games against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers had just returned home from a dismal seven-game road trip that […]

Dodgers on the wrong side of history

When Dodger Stadium opened on April 10, 1962, it was considered the crown jewel of major league baseball. Then Dodger owner Walter O’Malley had fulfilled his dream of building a new home for his beloved Dodgers that could seat over 56,000 fans and park over 16,000 automobiles, something that New York City Parks Commissioner Robert […]

Dodgers show signs of life before slipping back into a coma

If you were among those who showed up ‘fashionably late’ to Dodger Stadium on Friday night, you missed out on two things. First, you missed out on receiving a Cody Bellinger bobblehead given away to the first 40,000 fans in attendance of the eventual sellout crowd of 53,632; and second, you missed seeing the first signs of […]

Walker Buehler … Boom

Among the last things anyone ever wants to hear is “I told you so,” but the simple fact is … I told you so. Those who follow this site with any regularity are well aware that in addition to covering the Dodgers, we also cover their minor league affiliates. As such, we generally have our […]

The dilemma that is the Dodgers

I want to open this piece by saying that this season has been one to watch. The Dodgers have had long stretches of brilliance and that has awarded them the best record in baseball. That same team, though, has also seen some pretty poor stretches and they currently sit amongst one of those right now. […]

Roberts: ‘We’re going to win the division, I can assure you of that’

The 116 games that some believed the Dodgers might actually win this season became mathematically impossible with Wednesday night’s 3-1 lost to the red hot Arizona Diamondbacks at Dodger Stadium. With 92 wins in the bank and with 23 games remaining, the best they can now do is finish the 2017 regular season with 115 […]

Pedro Baez is damaged goods

It goes without saying that there isn’t a Dodger player, a Dodger beat writer (or blogger), or a Dodger fan on the planet who doesn’t absolutely love Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. Not only did the extremely polite 45-year-old Naha, Japan native lead the Dodgers to their fourth consecutive National League West title in his first season as the Dodgers […]
