Dodgers 7, Rockies 3: Clayton Kershaw At His Best-ish And Worst-ish

Dodger starters are no strangers to unusual games lately. A few nights ago, Brandon McCarthy struck out ten, walked none, and allowed four home runs. On opening day, Clayton Kershaw induced one of the highest whiff rates of his career, yet gave up three runs. On his next turn, he allowed six runs. Tonight’s 7-3 win against the Rockies continued the trend. On the one hand, Clayton...

Dodgers’ best pitching prospects impressing early on

I’m not going to steal all of Chad’s thunder from his minor-league updates (which will be monthly this season), but I just want to highlight a few of the Dodgers’ pitching prospects who have gotten off to hot starts. Of course, this post is mostly so I can write about Julio Urias, but there have been other impressive performances thus far. But let’s start with Urias. Julio...

Are the Los Angeles Dodgers the deepest team in baseball?

In the offseason, the Los Angeles Dodgers lost Matt Kemp, Dee Gordon and Hanley Ramirez. So far in 2015, those three are a combined 38-for-114 (.333 average) and have each come up big for their respective teams. For a team to lose one of those players in an offseason would be tough to overcome. All three in the same offseason? It would take a huge team effort to make up for those...

Dodgers use financial might to put monetary value on draft pick

The Dodgers made a trade last week in which they acquired Ryan Webb, Brian Ward and the 74th selection in the 2015 MLB Draft for Chris O’Brien and Ben Rowen. When it was first reported on Twitter, it didn’t make a ton of sense on the surface. Minutes after the initial report, it came to light the Dodgers were also acquiring the Orioles’ Competitive Balance Round B draft pick...

Jackie Robinson Day 2015

“A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” ~ Jackie Robinson April 15th has been dedicated by the MLB as Jackie Robinson Day since 2004. It’s a day dedicated to the memory of a man who faced the worst of man’s hatred and racism with poise, grace, and non-violence. Jackie Robinson was a baseball phenom who played 9 years with the Brooklyn Dodgers...

Both Los Angeles Dodgers and Catcher Yasmani Grandal Unconcerned About Numbers Behind the Plate

(Mandatory Credit: Jake Roth/USA TODAY) “He’s been unbelievable back there,” Dodgers’ pitcher Zack Greinke said of his teammate and freshman Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal, “His catching is better than advertised.” When it comes to Grandal’s “advertising,” the jury is still out. He’s universally hailed as one of the best pitch-framers in the league. From 2007...

Puig is cutting back on bat flips

In some of the most depressing bat flip related news we’ve ever heard, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is going to be making an effort to cut back on his theatric, entertaining bat flips this season. Why? Because he doesn’t want to give off the impression that he’s disrespectful. The LA Times has the quotes. Though acknowledging that some fans are entertained...

Three games into the season, Gonzalez’s bat is pure fire

Yes, it’s early. The 2015 MLB season hasn’t even completed its first week yet. As of this writing, no team has played more than three games. But if MVP awards were handed out before teams have finished their opening series of the year, Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez would probably hoard all the votes. In his first 13 plate appearances of the very young season, Gonzalez...

Adrian Gonzalez early home runs are an MLB record

Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is on pace for 270 home runs this season. The 32-year-old will probably come up just a bit short of that number when all is said and done, but Gonzalez can’t miss at the moment.

Adrian Gonzalez hits three HRs, off to historic start

Allow The Dodgers’ Miserable Baserunning To Provide You With A Hearty Laugh

We’re only a few games into the 2015 MLB season so it’s understandable if some teams are still looking to shake off the rust and play their best baseball.

Industry sources estimate TWC losing $100M a year on Dodgers

While the value of televised sports rights just seems to keep rising, those rights aren’t always ensuring a profit for broadcasters or translating into more access for fans. The most glaring case in point might be the debacle of Time Warner Cable’s acquisition of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ TV rights ahead of last season.
