DODGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Adam Wainwright’s Strength Is The Dodgers’ Strength

Adam Wainwright is a very, very good pitcher. In a world without Clayton Kershaw, he would be a perennial Cy Young candidate. This year, he’ll likely finish third behind Kershaw and Johnny Cueto, behind the strength of a 2.38 ERA (66 ERA-) and a 2.88 FIP (79 FIP-). Combined with his 227 innings, those numbers resulted in 4.5 fWAR and 6.9 RA9 WAR this season. His peripherals have...

Los Angeles Dodgers seeking revenge

Los Angeles Dodger fans haven’t forgotten how last season ended. Technically speaking, the 2013 season came to an end on October 13, when the St. Louis Cardinals knocked Clayton Kershaw around for seven runs in four innings. It really didn’t help that the Dodgers only managed to get two hits off Cardinals starter Michael Wacha. That game six was a nightmare for Dodger fans, and...

Why The Los Angeles Dodgers Will Win The World Series

Who says money can’t buy happiness?

The Dodgers completed the regular season with a 94...

Mailbag #12: Hanley, Player Options, Ethier Trade, Brim, Vin

Mailbag! Send us questions using the form at the right or by emailing thedodgersdigest at gmail dot com. Yoda: does a ws ring change Hanley Ramirez‘ mind about leaving? Nope! Not even a little. It’s been proven again and again that the only thing that changes a player’s mind about free agency are dump trucks of money filled with smaller dump trucks that also contain money...

2014′s King Of Driving In Runners

On Sunday, Adrian Gonzalez had two hits, including his 27th homer of the season, and drove in three runs in the Dodgers’ season-ending 10-5 win over Colorado. Already all but guaranteed to lead the NL in runs batted in, the three he brought in yesterday ensured that he’d top Mike Trout and lead all of baseball for […]

Are The Dodgers Primed For An October Run?

#456237452 / gettyimages.com As leaves turn from green to brown and chilly nights replace those hot summer nights, the Los Angeles Dodgers find themselves again, National League Western Division Champions. It has been a long and tiring marathon to get there, but they have managed to survive a disappearing offense, imploding bullpen, and injuries to some of their starting rotation...

Dodgers shake up coaching staff

The Los Angeles Dodgers are taking things lightly as they wind down the regular season in preparation for the start of the playoffs next week. They showed up to the clubhouse later than usual Saturday afternoon, skipped batting practice prior to their game against the Colorado Rockies, and then came word from Dodgers manager Don Mattingly that he'll step aside for Sunday'...

Juan Uribe to manage Dodgers in last game of season

The Los Angeles Dodgers have wrapped up the NL West. The Colorado Rockies aren’t playing for anything. So, Sunday’s game between the two is meaningless outside of players getting one last chance to add to their season stats. With both teams largely going through the motions, the Dodgers will take the opportunity to switch things […]

The Return Of Matt Kemp’s Power, Briefly

The return of Matt Kemp‘s power has been one of the most fun stories of the second half of the season. After hitting just six home runs in 2013 and eight before this year’s all-star break, Kemp has added 16 more. His 24 home runs in 2014 are the most he’s hit since his 2011 should-have-been-MVP campaign. His offense still wasn’t bad before the recent hot streak, and we...

Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu has not pitched in a game since September 12 because of inflammation in his left shoulder. However, if he continues to progress through his rehab process at his current pace, then he should find himself pitching in the NLDS, likely in Game 3, says Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.According to Gurnick, Ryu threw a light bullpen session Friday and...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Let us talk about Clayton Kershaw

Ahh yes. My favorite subject. If you’ve been living under a rock for the last 6 months, you probably still have heard about the season Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw is putting up. Kershaw made his last start of the season on Wednesday, in the Giants 9-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants. That win gave the Dodgers the National League West title. Wednesday night...

They were more than ready to celebrate after their 9-1 victory, and you won’t be surprised to hear who led the way. As you can see, Yasiel Puig opened beers with his teeth (they were twist-offs) […]
