Chris Capuano pitched four solid innings and Ramon Castro hit a two-run homer for the Dodgers before their split-squad game against the Cincinnati Reds was rained out with Los Angeles leading 3-1 on Friday night. The game was called after four innings, the second rainout of the day for both teams. Earlier at Scottsdale Stadium, rain and hail ended a Dodgers-Giants game in the second inning with Los Angeles ahead 4-0. Cincinnati's other split squad was tied 1-all with the Chicago Cubs in the second inning Friday night before that game was called. The rain at Camelback Ranch started in the second inning. It increased in the third and fourth, leaving the field muddy. Capuano gave up a run and two hits. Reds starter Bronson Arroyo worked three innings, allowing one run and one hit.

Uncle Charlie: Examining the best curveballs in the Dodgers' farm system

Uncle Charlie. No. 2. The Hammer. Public Enemy No. 1. The Deuce. No matter what you call it, the curveball is probably the most "famous" pitch in all of baseball. It's usually the first pitch taught to young players, even if it is hell on their elbows, and was the topic of a joke from the best baseball movie ever made: "Major League." The curveball...

The Assist: Dodgers Matt Kemp’s Big League Chew debut

Back in the day, “Big League Chew” bubble gum was shredded to make a kiddie version of chewing tabacco. Kind of like how there used to be candy cigarettes. Clearly that sort of stuff is frowned upon now. But, the gum lives on and for it’s 30th anniversary, a new pacage is in order. Instead of cartoon baseball characters, actual MLB players will be featured. Dodgers star Matt...

Larry Walker Told Adrian Gonzalez ‘You’re Too Important to the Game’ During World Baseball Classic Rumble

Amid the chaos that took place at Chase Field on Saturday, Canadian coach and former major league All-Star Larry Walker emerged as a peacekeeper. Mexico and Canada came to blows during their World Baseball Classic clash, and things really got ugly. Both sides threw punches, which immediately increased the risk of injury. Walker tried to restore order, though, first by grabbing Mexico...

Clutchitude: Least Clutch Plays By The 2012 Dodgers – Hitting

Baseball fans love to talk about clutch plays and clutch players, and Dodgers fans are no exception, but like with a pitcher’s best and worst pitches, there tends to be a lack of evidence presented. As such, I decided to find some basis for clutch plays and clutch players, courtesy of the WPA and Clutch statistics. WPA Most sabermetric statistics are context neutral — they do...

Dodgers' Cruz, Gonzalez in brawl in the WBC

PHOENIX (AP) -- A fierce brawl that saw Alfredo Aceves and several players throw nasty punches erupted Saturday in the ninth inning of Canada's 10-3 romp over Mexico in the World Baseball Classic in a melee that also involved fans. The fights broke out after Canada's Rene Tosoni was hit by a pitch from Arnold Leon with Canada leading 9-3 at Chase Field, home of the Arizona...

Lilly goes an inning for Dodgers against Giants

Los Angeles left-hander Ted Lilly would have liked to pitch to defending NL MVP Buster Posey. The weather just would not cooperate Friday. Once the hail came down in earnest, Posey didn't even wait for the umpires, he walked out of the batter's box. ''Those are the things you need,'' Lilly said after recording two outs before heavy rain and hail ended the...

Player Profile #40: Hanley Ramirez | 3B, SS | LAD

Hanley Ramirez batted .342 in 2009, winning the National League batting title and finishing second in the MVP voting to an in-his-prime Albert Pujols. Ramirez followed that season up with a .300 average in 2010 and his third consecutive All-Star appearance, but in the two years since he’s batted just .243 and .257 and hasn’t [...]

Carl Crawford Needs to Get Over Lackluster Boston Tenure or Else He’ll Find Himself in L.A.’s Doghouse

Carl Crawford didn’t bring much to the table in Boston, and he hasn’t brought anything to the table in Los Angeles. Yet as Opening Day approaches, Crawford is still flapping his gums about his less-than-stellar Red Sox tenure. Crawford again spoke out about his time in Boston during an interview with CBSSports.com’s Danny Knobler. The outfielder acknowledged that he didn...

Carl Crawford: Boston media was ‘worst thing I’ve ever experienced in my life’

Carl Crawford needs to stop complaining about his time with the Boston Red Sox. At the end of the day, he was a horrible fit with the team. Injuries made life more difficult than it had to be, but Crawford plays for the Los Angeles Dodgers now. Until he succeeds with his new team, blaming the Boston media for his struggles on the east coast is pointless. However, Crawford continues...
