Dodgers Light Teammate Scott Van Slyke On Fire In Awesome Prank (Video)

Scott Van Slyke has been a bit of a hot head lately, as the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder was thrown out of Friday’s game for arguing a call from the dugout. On Sunday, Van Slyke’s “fire” took on a very literal form. With its team holding a comfortable 6-0 lead over the St. Louis Cardinals thanks to another dominating performance from pitcher Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers...

Los Angeles Dodgers trade rumors- Tampa Bay Rays edition

The Dodgers could use a versatile veteran like Ben Zobrist In what might be the biggest surprise in baseball in 2014, the Tampa Bay Rays are finally bad. They haven’t been decimated by injuries, they just cannot field a competitive team in the uber competitive AL East. Currently, the Rays are 11.5 games behind the first-place Toronto Blue Jays in the East. They will be getting...

Trade With ARPSmith's Sportscard Obsession: Chad Billingsley Was More Dominant Than People Think.

I completed my second trade with Adam from ARPSmith's Sportscard Obsession. Adam pulled a beautiful card numbered 10/10 from the Elite Dominator subset of 2014 Donruss Baseball. I inquired and thankfully we were able to work out a great deal. It helps to be the only serious Chad Billingsley collector in the blogging world.The main crux of what is headed Adam's way is a Matt...

Lynn labors through two as Cards fall to Dodgers 9-1

LOS ANGELES -- Zack Greinke became the third NL pitcher to reach double digits in victories, and the Los Angeles Dodgers had four RBI doubles during a six-run second inning to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 9-1 on Saturday. Greinke (10-4) allowed a run and four hits over seven innings, struck out 10 and did not walk a batter as the Dodgers won for the 11th time in 15 games. The 2009...

Cardinals @ Dodgers June 29, 2014: Justin Turner’s Terribly-Timed Injury

Another day, another injury. This time, as very much expected when we saw him limp into second base last night, it’s Justin Turner. That’s obviously 15 days a minimum, but with the way he reacted to that hamstring, don’t be surprised if it’s longer than that. If he’s back before August, I’ll be pleasantly surprised; it is one of several reasons why the Dodgers really...

The Chemistry Of the Dodgers Catching The Giants

Just over two weeks ago, I wrote about “the right and wrong ways to criticize the 2014 Dodgers,” saying that while the Dodgers certainly had their faults, it was ridiculous to compare their record to that of the Giants — on pace, at the time, for 105 wins — and even sillier to insinuate that the reason that the Giants were doing so much better was because of “chemistry...

Vin Scully does play-by-play of a Dodgers hot foot

We’ve chronicled how Vin Scully is a true national treasure and this season proves that the Great One continues to have his fastball well into his 80′s. On Friday, we told you how Vin described a random bird pooping on St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Metheny led him down his current life path. Now we have the latest where Scully described a Dodger prank as it was happening in...

Dodgers Injury Update: Hanley Ramirez out Sunday with calf issue

Cleveland Sporting Team @ Dodgers June 30, 2014: LOLHanley

Last week, when the Dodgers were in Kansas City, I remember writing about how long it had been since the two teams had last played, all the way back in 2005. But I remembered that series without having to look it up, coming as it did in the midst of the high point of Hee-Seop Choi‘s career. Indians Dodgers 7:10pm PT Los Angeles, CA CF Bourn 2B...

Dodgers lean on pitching in 1-0 win over Indians

ON THE MOUND: Dan Haren allowed only two baserunners in seven innings. He walked David Murphy and gave up an infield hit to Michael Bourn in the third inning, but nothing else. "That's the best I've thrown the ball this year," said Haren, who is unbeaten in his last five starts. The game was the 34th in a row in which the Dodgers' starting pitcher walked two...

Chris Perez discusses his time in Cleveland

Lucky’s Café in Tremont is so damn good that it’s all Chris Perez misses about his time in Cleveland. In an interview with Cleveland.com’s Zach Meisel, Perez, the former Tribe closer, discusses his life with the Los Angeles Dodgers and the way his much-discussed tenure ended with the Cleveland Indians. It ended a lot better than it started, team-wise. What we were able to...

Overwhelmed by Clayton Kershaw, Cardinals fall to third place in NL Central

In this afternoon’s four game series finale, Kershaw was welcome to see the Cardinals’ struggling offense this season. After his no-hitter a couple weeks ago against Colorado along with eight shutout innings...

MLB Post-June Awards Race

Believe it or not, it’s July, which means we are halfway through the Major League Baseball season.  July brings us the All-Star Game in the middle of the month and the trade deadline at the end.  Plus, a month full of meaningful baseball games that could very well impact the playoff push.
