Actually, Sergio Romo is not good

Recently, Dustin wrote an article about why the Dodgers shouldn’t give up on Sergio Romo. I, person who pines for Romo to be DFA’d almost daily, have a different opinion on that. Oddly enough, I’m not sure I need to do all that much, as it’s the easy position to take, but that doesn’t mean …

Dodgers Roster: A Few Early Season Surprises

I think if I had to name the one thing I love the most about baseball, it’s that it just so darn unpredictable. Almost a third of the way into the season, there are quite a few things that no fan of the Dodgers could have predicted. Take last night’s game, for example. After Rich Hill could not throw a strike to save his life on Wednesday, and the Cardinals took a lead that the...

The Dodgers did something unusual last night

In last night’s victory over the Cardinals, Kenta Maeda pitched five innings, allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks. When he came out after just 78 pitches, Hyun-Jin Ryu entered to make his first-ever MLB relief appearance. He proceeded to deliver four scoreless innings, notching a save. When Ryu got that final out, it capped off sort of a rare …

Ryu shines in relief debut, still wants to start

Manager Dave Roberts indicated Thursday that the Dodgers don't know what to do with lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu, who is no longer in the rotation but may not be a fit for the bullpen and has enough service time that he can refuse a demotion to the Minor Leagues.

Switch hitter Yasmani Grandal wears wrong helmet to plate

Yasmani Grandal made an inadvertent mistake when he stepped to the plate for his first at-bat on Wednesday.Grandal is a switch hitter, so he wears a different helmet depending on which side of the plate he’s batting from. His first at-bat was from the left side while facing the St. Louis Cardinals’ Mike Leake, so he was supposed to use a helmet with the ear flap on the right...

Joc Pederson leaves game after second rough collision of night in Dodgers outfield

Tuesday night started out well for Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Joc Pederson. It was his bobblehead night at Dodger Stadium. And his brother Champ was on hand to throw out the first pitch. But then the actual game happened, and it left Pederson in plenty of pain. Pederson basically got climbed on by rookie left fielder Cody Bellinger on a collision during the seventh inning...

Cody Bellinger Was Built to Be This Way

The first time I met Dodgers slugger Cody Bellinger, we didn’t have a lot of time, so I just shook his hand and said that I’d seen him enough to think “you swing really hard, every time, don’t you?” He smiled. “Always been this way.” And that part remained true when we reconnected. But he also opened my eyes to the parts of his game that were molded along the way. ...

Vin Scully pays tribute to Dodgers’ Spanish voice Jaime Jarrin and his remote broadcasting

There was plenty of attention paid to Los Angeles Dodgers’ voice Vin Scully retiring after 67 seasons with the club last year, and deservedly so, but a less-covered national story has been the long-term excellence displayed by another Dodgers’ voice, Jaime Jarrin.

Marlins’ Don Mattingly goes off on Dodgers following blowout loss

There are unwritten rules in baseball. Don’t show up the opposing pitcher by lollygagging around the bases after a homer. Don’t step on the pitchers’ mound. Make sure not to steal bases when ahead by a large sum. These are among the most notorious unwritten rules in the game.Though, there are some who believe hitters should not swing at a 3-0 pitch when a game is completely...

Yasiel Puig admires home run a bit too long, in true Puig fashion (VIDEO)

Bat flips are already becoming a bit controversial, so Dodgers slugger Yasiel Puig is finding other ways to show opposing pitchers that he absolutely destroyed their pitches. Puig hit a monstrous home run off Edinson Volquez on Thursday night which traveled 442 feet. It was also the hardest and longest home run he’s hit in his career. Given the magnitude of the moon shot, Puig...

Everyone Is on the Disabled List Right Now

Over the course of the last week, the Dodgers placed four players on the disabled list, most in baseball. Andrew Toles, with his torn ACL, would have gone on the DL in any other year, and that might also be true for Adam Liberatore and his strained hamstring. But Kenta Maeda (tightness in hamstring) and Brandon McCarthy (sore left shoulder) are dealing with less debilitating issues...
