Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Ronald Belisario had a rough time in the field during the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the New York Yankees when he committed two errors on one play, leading to a Yankees rally which allowed them to take control of the game.
Belisario came into the game in the bottom of the seventh with runners on first and second and one out. Yankees batter Vernon Wells hit a popup in front of the mound, but Belisario misjudged it and let it bounce in front of him. Then, Belisario tried to pick up the ball for the throw to first, but somehow fumbled the ball backwards through his legs, which counted as the first error. Yankees runner Robinson Cano got a late jump while running to second base, so Belisario threw to second base, but his wild throw ended up in center field, which allowed Cano to advance to third and Jason Nix to score on the play. Belisario was taken out of the game after hitting the next Yankees batter, so his appearance was complete after only four pitches. Talk about a bad day at the office.
To add insult to injury, Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki singled to drive home Cano and Wells and complete the three-run rally in the seventh for the Yankees, who won the game 6-4.

The Dodgers are set to pay a financial penalty for going over their draft bonus pool limit, but won’t have to pay the severe penalty of losing a 2014 draft pick.
There was legit reason to worry, as our own Dustin Nosler pointed out, because the team was in questionable territory with the bonuses of J.D. Underwood, Kyle Farmer, and Nick Keener to go.

I recently acquired a stunningly gorgeous card that jumps to the top of the mountain that is my Corey Seager Collection. I knew I had to lock down this beaut when it popped up on eBay and thankfully my winning bid was far less than what I anticipated the card selling for. Adding to my Seager Trifecta was also free as I had some focus group money left to play and pay with.This is...
I completed my first trade with Judson from My Cardboard Habit. Judson contacted me about a hit he had that didn't fit into his collection. I was interested, and after a couple of e-mails this gorgeous Matt Kemp 2013 Gypsy Queen swatch became the newest addition to my Bison PC.Black-bordered cards just can't be beat. I also received five much needed cards from my 2012 Ginter...
Since Logan White took over as scouting director (now vice
president of amateur scouting and assistant general manager), the Dodgers have
been known for drafting high school players.
White’s first draft pick was James Loney in 2002, a high
school first baseman (who some viewed as a pitcher) from Texas.
While White’s crew has selected prep players in the first...
There has been a lot of rabble going into the All-Star Game next month about Dodgers rookie phenom Yasiel Puig potentially getting named to the team after just 15 games. Bruce Bochy of the Giants, manager of this year's NL squad, said he'd be hard-pressed to add Puig to the roster. And honestly, I can see both sides of the argument on this one.
Puig has been sensational...
Back in the 1980s, when the New York Yankees were in a championship drought, there was one player most fans were inevitably drawn to.
The gritty first baseman with the thick eye black. The guy who crouched low and then uncoiled that sweet, powerful swing from the left side of the plate.
During a rare down period for baseball's most successful franchise, Don...
Pedro Ciriaco provided a pair of big hits late in Thursday night’s game helping the San Diego Padres to a 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The loss drops the Dodgers to 8.5 games behind division leading Arizona Diamondbacks including six games behind the Padres who moved into sole possession of third in the NL West.
Ciriaco has had a nice start for the Padres after being...
The most exciting play in baseball, within context, is presumably the walk-off grand slam with two outs and a three-run deficit. Within context, I imagine it’s almost a perfect correlation between play excitement and Win Probability Added. This is why WPA works as both a baseball statistic and emotion statistic. Any immediate reversal of deficit to victory is going to be outstanding...
NEW YORK (AP) -- The game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees has been postponed by rain, delaying the renewal of their old October rivalry. The game was called Tuesday night about 30 minutes before the scheduled first pitch. It will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader Wednesday, with start times of 1:05 p.m. and 7:05 p.m. A star player and fan...

The Los Angeles Dodgers are the Cerberus of the sports world. A three-headed monster with the wallet of a Steinbrenner, the media draw of LeBron James, and the propensity to fail of every talented-but-evil team in the final minutes of a sports movie. What could possibly go wrong?
Don’t ask fans in L...
When the Dodgers last won the World Series as New York City, a ticket to Game 4 could be had for $7.35, or less than the cost of a hot dog or a beer at the New Yankee Stadium. The last time the Dodgers visited the Bronx was for the 1981 world series, and the face price of the Old Yankee Stadium Loge seats was $20. Times have obviously changed, and for last year's World Series...
