First the good news: Matt Kemp continued his amazing April with his 10th home run in the first month of the season, typing Gary Sheffield’s club record from April 2000.
Sure, Kemp has made a few questionable decisions this season (he had a couple of base running and fielding issues last night), but the guy has been lights out at the plate and generally in the field, driving in 23 RBI with a .449 AVG, a .513 OBP and a .942 slugging percentage. That prediction of 50 home runs doesn’t seem so far fetched right about now (no comment on the 50 SB prediction), but regardless, Kemp is clearly playing like the best player in baseball and he’s a joy for Dodger fans to watch night in and night out.
And from Jon Weisman I learned that Ted Lilly has taken over the major-league ERA lead at 0.90…not bad for the old man!
Now for the bad news: Unfortunately for the Dodgers, the team blew a 2-1 lead in the 9th against the Braves when Javy Guerra gave up what seemed like an endless stream of hits (i...

The first inning Monday night against Atlanta pretty much encapsulated the Dodgers' season to date.
Dee Gordon singled to lead off the game, stole second base, and advanced to third on a flyball from Mark Ellis.
Matt Kemp, he of the .460 batting average and nine home runs, was pitched to carefully and walked. Andre Ethier followed with a single, giving the Dodgers a 1-0 lead...
Nathan Eovaldi is headed back to the Dodgers.
The right-hander went 1-2 with a 3.63 ERA in 10 appearances (six starts) last season. He left double-A Chattanooga on Thursday and will join the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Friday, according to the Times Free Press.
The Dodgers have yet to announce the move, so its uncertain who will make room for him on the 25-man roster. Manager Don...
The Los Angeles Dodgers will recall right-hander Nathan Eovaldi from Class AA Chattanooga before Friday's game with the Nationals, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reported Thursday. Eovaldi, 22, was pulled from his start with Chattanooga after just one inning Wednesday amid speculation that a Dodgers pitcher is ailing. Mike MacDougal has been sick, according to the Los Angeles...
Did you go to sleep before you saw this crazy comebacker by BMac that smacked Dodgers' closer Javy Guerra right in the kisser? How he stayed in the game, I don't understand... and neither did anyone else, from the announcers to other players.
Javy Guerra is so precious twitter.com/inthecalzone/s…

Dee Gordon is turning in highlight reel plays on defense on the regular, which just makes me wish he could do the simple things like catch and throw. Matt Kemp hit this mammoth shot to give the Dodgers a win to put the Dodgers ahead, but Javy Guerra surrendered three runs in the ninth and

The Los Angeles Dodgers' bullpen received a shake-up Tuesday when Matt Guerrier was placed on the disabled list due to right elbow tendinitis. Because Guerrier hadn't pitched since April 18, the move was made retroactive April 19. To take Guerrier's place on the roster, the Dodgers recalled left-hander Michael Antonini from Class AAA Albuquerque. Antonini, 26, was...
With yet another curiously timed injury to a bullpen arm, this time Matt Guerrier, the Dodgers have managed to avoid making a bullpen decision for at least 15 more days. Dodgers reliever Matt Guerrier, signed in part to be the bullpen workhorse, was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday because of right elbow flexor
This was actually worse than I thought it was when I was listening to it, because they made it sound like it was a deflection off his glove, but it certainly looks to me like it caught him flush on the jaw. Say what you want about his pitching performance, but it’s amazing to me
While Javy Guerra was at fault for the single and giving up the bomb to the track, Matt Kemp sans alligator arms certainly would have helped him. Could have been worse though. Could have been Will Venable
The Washington Nationals (14-5) will head to Los Angeles today to face the Dodgers (13-6) in a battle for supremacy atop the National League.
