The Los Angeles Dodgers not only did some sweeping this weekend but they re-organized the garage as well. Coming off a weekend sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates, GM Ned Colletti made good on a few off season promises.
The Dodgers are counting on Ramon Hernandez to be the veteran they need to back up AJ Ellis.
Last winter, Colletti said that obtaining a veteran back-up catcher for A...
Hyun-Jin Ryu, Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw have serious skills on the baseball diamond.
But what about the dance floor?

Here’s a brief recap of what Clayton did during Opening Week.
-Shut out the Giants on Opening Day, going 9 innings, striking out...
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw has been named National League Player of the Week after his two lights out performances to start the season.
At a time when the Dodgers' bats have struggled to find consistency, Kershaw, the team's ace, has at least done his part to shut down the opposition, going 2-0 in two starts and not allowing a single earned run...
While Don Mattingly believes Matt Kemp‘s shoulder may be a mental hurdle he’ll have to get past, he and the Dodgers staff are not concerned about it affecting Kemp physically, as the injury hasn’t cropped back up after off-season surgery and there have been no lingering side effects.
“He may be thinking about [the shoulder], but it doesn’t seem like it any more,” manager...
The first Sunday afternoon game at Dodger Stadium was played in nice weather and beautiful sunshine. A sellout crowd (52,053 tickets sold according to Vin Scully) showed up to watch the Dodgers play the final game of the 3 game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Hyun-Jin Ryu started for the Dodgers and immediately gave up a single to Starling Marte, the second consecutive game...
SAN DIEGO, Calif. On April 5, 2012, with incoming owner Magic Johnson, and disgraced outgoing owner Frank McCourt sitting next to each other at Petco Park, Matt Kemp hit a two-run homer to give the Dodgers a 5-3 win over the Padres on Opening Day.
In May, the Guggenheim Management group officially took over, and the billion-dollar makeover of the Dodgers was under way.
Hyun-Jin Ryu earned his first major league victory, shrugging off a two-run homer in the first inning by Andrew McCutchen and pitching the Los Angeles Dodgers past the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-2 Sunday for a three-game sweep.
Adrian Gonzalez drove in four runs with three hits and Justin Sellers homered for the Dodgers.
Ryu (1-1) allowed two runs and three hits in 6 1-3 innings, striking...
The Pittsburgh Pirates jumped out to an early lead against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday afternoon.
Starling Marte, who was the only Pirate to get a base hit off of Clayton Kershaw in Saturday nights game , led off the game with a single to left field off of MLB rookie Hyun-Jin Ryu. Ryu got Neil Walker to pop out to shortstop before Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run home run to...
The Dodgers' offense is off to a slow start, which is pretty much the norm for this club in the last, oh, 25 years. At least, it seems that way.
In the same breath, the pitching is off to a great start, which is par for the course.
The Dodger pitching staff is tops in a ton of categories:
Runs - 10
Earned runs - 6
Hits - 28
Doubles - 1
Walks - 8
Shutouts - 3
Pirates (1-4) at Dodgers (3-2)
4:10 PM–Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles
The Pirates look to avoid a series sweep (or at least avoid a series shutout) today against the Dodgers. They’ve dropped eight straight at Dodger Stadium and have obviously been completely dreadful at the plate so far this year. It’s gotta change some time soon..
