Greg: What would the playoff rotation be?
This question still totally depends on Hyun Jin Ryu‘s health.
Assuming Ryu is healthy and that the Dodgers win the division, they should have everybody rested for the NLDS on Oct. 3. That means a rotation of Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun Jin Ryu, and Dan Haren. I honestly cannot see them playing match-ups with the rotation order...
Roberto Hernandez wasn’t particularly sharp today, which is becoming a usual trend. The Dodger offense was certainly active and gave the team a big lead, but depending on the bullpen this much was going to backfire at some point, and the Dodgers ultimately fell 8-7.
Hernandez only lasted four plus innings, allowing two runs while striking out four and walking two. He has not...
Thanks to Russell Martin and Jonathon Broxton, the Los Angeles Dodgers are heading back to the postseason.
In an awesome coincidence, when former Dodger now Pittsburgh Pirate Russell Martin hit a game-winning three run home run against former Dodger now Milwaukee Brewer Jonathon Broxton, the Dodgers clinched at worst the second NL Wild Card spot.
Dodger players don’t seem too...
Joc Pederson is one of the best prospects in Major League Baseball, but that didn’t stop his teammates from sending him out on a rookie errand during his September call-up. The Los Angeles Dodgers sent the 22-year-old outfielder on a Starbucks run while they were in Chicago for their series against the Cubs, and they made him do it in full uniform. That just goes to show that...
September baseball at its best. Los Angeles Dodgers rookie outfielder Joc Pederson was seen across the street from Wrigley Field on Friday fetching a ton of Starbucks drinks for his veteran teammates.
It’s all part of a lighthearted “hazing” process that most rookies go through as rosters expand during the final month of the regular season.
I just want to know what the reaction...
Today begins three consecutive days of morning baseball for the Dodgers in Chicago. At least you’ll have the rest of the day for activities. Oh, and it’s a Clayton Kershaw day. That’s fun.
It’s well documented that Yasiel Puig has been having a rough second half to the season. Fangraph’s own Jeff Sullivan covered Puig’s troubles in a great piece here, and other articles like this one, and this one, and this one, continue to pop up. Further, a recent dugout altercation with veteran Matt Kemp have only made the media scrutiny on baseball’s most volatile player...
Here’s a direct quote from my last article, previewing the Los Angeles Dodgers three game series in Coors Field.
They head to Coors Field, where Dan Haren, Roberto Hernandez and Carlos Frias will pitch. In Coors Field. Honestly, if the Dodgers win one game and leave without an outfielder killing himself running into a wall, I’ll consider the series a victory.
So I guess the Dodgers...
Ken Rosenthal has an NL MVP vote this year, and the other day, he wrote about his thought process in regards to pitchers winning the award. He’d prefer to vote for a position player, but isn’t entirely against pitchers-as-MVPs, and he noted that a dominant starter who works deep into games doesn’t just affect the […]
This was the best photo that helps convey the title! What a great concept.
When baseball mixes with anything superhero, our hearts tend to skip a beat and of course, geeky smiles follow. The Dodgers had their rookies dress up as Super Heroes and Ninja Turtles.

For the past six weeks, it looked like the Dodgers would win the NL West and perhaps the league’s top seed despite getting little contribution from Yasiel Puig.
In August, the Cuban sensation compiled a slash average of .216/.296/.247. As that slugging percentage indicates, Puig wasn’t hitting for any extra-base power, managing only two doubles and no home runs in 108 plate appearances...
Los Angeles Dodgers speedster Dee Gordon starts the double-play of the season deflecting a well placed ball to Justin Turner after a diving stop. The Dodgers are poised to go far in the post-season with web-gems like this from Gordon and company.

Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp appeared to get into a heated exchange during the Los Angeles Dodgers’ 11-3 win over the Colorado Rockies on Monday night, but no one on the team has been willing to say why. The altercation took place during the sixth inning. Manager Don Mattingly […]
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielders Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig exchanged words in the dugout Monday night, and it’s unlikely those were friendly words.
Kemp sought out Puig in the Los Angeles dugout during the Dodgers’ eventual 11-3 win over the Colorado Rockies. From there, it was the veteran outfielder who was doing most of the talking even as most of their teammates were celebrating...

That series went exactly as planned right?
The Los Angeles Dodgers went into San Francisco and took two of three games, extending their NL West lead to three games over the Giants.
The Dodgers won starts by Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw, and lost to Giants’ ace Madison Bumgarner. Nothing out of the ordinary here.
Except that Friday and Saturday were prime examples of why baseball...
