R.J. Anderson looked at Ned Colletti‘s trade history over at Baseball Prospectus and wondered why Dodgers fans are so worried about him. Colletti’s evaluation mistakes cost the Dodgers two middle-of-the-rotation starters, an All-Star catcher, and a good fourth outfielder at most. But what about the flip side? What about when Colletti correctly evaluated his own

Chris Reed the only prospect to represent Dodgers in Futures Game

The 2012 Futures Game rosters were announced today and London-born (say wha?) Chris Reed will represent the Dodgers in Kansas City this year. It's no surprise to see Reed headed to KC, as he's had a really good season so far: 2.86 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and a 9.2 K/9 between High-A Rancho Cucamonga and Double-A Chattanooga. Reed, 22, has a good fastball that sits in the...

Offense becomes punchless without Kemp

The Dodgers continued a trend Wednesday night, one that has seen their offense decline in June. Los Angeles scored one run on just three hits against Tommy Milone, and the Athletics' rookie left-hander pitched a complete game while earning a 4-1 win. The Dodgers have scored just one run on five hits in two games at Oakland. Since Matt Kemp was placed on the disabled list May...

Kershaw's day takes away some of the pain

The Dodgers were swept in the three-game series at Oakland, but the silver lining to their dark cloud Thursday was a magnificent start from Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw rebounded from allowing five runs in six innings on June 15 against the White Sox by pitching eight strong innings in Oakland. Kershaw allowed one run and three hits with two walks and seven strikeouts. But the left...

Kershaw deals with post-Cy Young frustration

OAKLAND There's a side effect that comes with winning the Cy Young Award: dealing with its lofty expectations afterward. Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw won the award in the National League last year, and although he's having a reasonably good season in 2012, Kershaw has "seemed frustrated at times this year," Manager Don Mattingly said. Kershaw pitched well again...

Eovaldi allows 3 runs, Dodgers fall to A's

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Tommy Milone pitched a three-hitter for his first career complete game, Yoenis Cespedes had two hits and an RBI in his return to the Oakland lineup and the Athletics beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1 on Wednesday night for their seventh win in eight games. Cespedes scored Oakland's first run after a double and added an RBI single in the fifth to back another...

The highest pitching game score of all time

The Game Score statistic was developed by Bill James as a way of giving pitchers a score for each game they pitch. A closer look at how the stat is calculated will be discussed later in this post. The statistic is a way to rate starting pitchers. The average starting pitching Game Score is 49 to 51 (depending on the year). This season's league average is 51. R.A. Dickey currently...

A.J. Ellis talks to Clayton Kershaw about lefty problems and “Inception” on “Between Two Palm Trees”

Apparently this was posted a few days ago but I missed it, and given that I covered episodes one and two, I figured I should continue the trend by drawing attention to episodes three and four. Your browser does not support iframes. Your browser does not support iframes

Athletics sweep Dodgers on walk-off

Yoenis Cespedes hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning for his first career game-ending shot, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1 on Thursday for a sweep. Cespedes connected with no outs off Josh Lindblom (2-1), sending a drive just inside the left-field foul pole. Oakland has won eight of nine after holding the NL's best team to eight total hits in...

What You Need to Know: Friday, June 22 by Daniel Rathman

The Thursday Takeaway A week ago, when the Dodgers put the finishing touches on a 7-6 win in their series opener against the White Sox, broadcaster Vin Scully was as captivated by their continued success as the fans watching on TV. That win was the 41st of the season for Los Angeles, then a league high, and after it, Scully—with all the eloquence you’d expect from the game’s...

Dodgers-Angels Preview

The Los Angeles Dodgers open their series with the Los Angeles Angels coming off one of their worst offensive showings in the last century. Considering how inconsistent Angels starter Dan Haren has been, it's anyone's guess if the NL West leaders will get things turned around Friday night. Facing an Oakland staff that came into this week's series with the majors'...
