The Howard- anytime a player hits a homerun, commits an error, and strikes out, all within the same game.Ryan Howard had the only Phillies Howard of the season, until last night's hero, Delmon Young came through. Naturally the Phils won the game. Since the stat's creation before the 2009 season, the Phillies the Phillies have committed 21 Howards, and are 18-3 in those games (.857 winning percentage).Trade & Signing:Amaro traded for the ultimate no-hit, all-glove utility infielder in the form of the ancient John McDonald. The 38 year old has played for both the Pirates and the Indians this season, so he become a beloved Phuccos as soon as he appears in a game for the Phillies. He's batting .053 this season (2-38) and is a career .236/.601 hitter over his 15 year career. He's being given a spot on the 25-man roster too, which is confusing since this team needs offense and McDonal doesn't supply any. This is further proof that Amaro is a clueless sock pupp...

Carlos Ruiz returned earlier that week. But in addition to Salisbury noting the scout’s presence, Salisbury called the following out:
Three of those players –- Utley, Ruiz and (Michael) Young –- could be of serious interest to the Yankees, who are in the market for catching and corner-infield help.
According to a baseball executive, the Yankees have already kicked around Ruiz’s...

Yesterday the sad news broke that former Philadelphia Phillies All Star catcher and fan favorite Darren Daulton was diagnosed with two tumors in his brain. Daulton will undergo surgery next week. As of now his prognosis is unknown.
For several years I have discussed my theory about brain cancer and MLB players. Losing two Philadelphia Phillies favorites in Tug McGraw and John Vuchovich...
Joc Pederson will represent the Dodgers at the 2013 Futures Game on the Sunday before the All-Star game. The 21-year-old is doing some good things in the Southern League.
He's not hitting as well as he was earlier this season, but he's still posting respectable numbers: .296/.383/.500, 11 home runs, 34 RBI, 53 runs scored and 21 stolen bases (in 24 attempts).
I couldn't pass up at least bidding on this beaut when I saw how low it was sitting at. I didn't expect to win it but returned home to find I had secured the newest addition to my Kid K Collection.I've long been a fan of blue patch pieces for Dodgers' cards, as that means the swatch came from either the "Los Angeles" or "Dodgers" portion of the...
The Los Angeles Dodgers find themselves in the basement of the ultra-competitive National League West. Still, Los Angeles is determined to upgrade its roster, according to Jim Bowden of ESPN, specifically at starting pitcher and third base.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have had a disappointing first half of the season, partly due to injuries in the starting rotation. Right-hander Josh Beckett had trouble even before he landed on the disabled list on May 14. Becket, though, began throwing again on June 27, and he is doing all he can to avoid surgery. MLB.com's Ken Gurnick broke the news Thursday evening.
On first inspection, Matt Kemp‘s catch on Tuesday night to preserve the Dodgers 6-5 win over the Giants may not look so spectacular. However, it’s a well-known fact, especially among center fielders, that the most difficult catch is on a ball hit directly over your head. So, Kemp’s catch is actually among the best you’ll see all year.
With the Dodgers leading the Giants by...
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Delmon Young had a career-high six RBIs, helping John Lannan breeze to his first victory with Philadelphia, and the Phillies got homers from Michael Young and John Mayberry in a 16-1 rout of the Dodgers on Friday night, snapping Los Angeles' season-best, six-game winning streak. Phillies All-Star first baseman Ryan Howard, batting .268 overall and .173...
The Phillies rebounded from a tough loss yesterday by absolutely demolishing Los Angeles' pitching staff in support of John Lannan Friday, managing 21 hits in a 16-1 win. Chris Capuano, who had pitched 11 scoreless innings stretching back to his last two starts, didn't look sharp at all out of...
Many expected the Los Angeles Dodgers to activate outfielder Scott Van Slyke from the 15-day D.L. on Friday, with some looking at Luis Cruz as the odd man out on the 25-man roster.
Minutes ago, the Dodgers made the official announcement, confirming the above suspicions:
#Dodgers today reinstated Scott Van Slyke from the 15-day disabled list and designated Luis Cruz for assignment...
Chris Anderson made quite the statement with his
professional debut on Tuesday night. It’s the smallest of sample sizes, but his
debut should fill Dodger fans with optimism.
Anderson, the Dodgers’ first-round draft pick in 2013,
struck out the side in his first inning of work. He did so on just 10 pitches,
nine of which were strikes. That’s impressive in its own...
The Phillies are coming off of a series win in San Diego against the Padres. Last night the Phillies pulled out a win in 13 innings. Despite Cole Hamels allowing five earned runs, the Phils were able to tie it up late in the game and take the lead and...
Not even Brandon League was able to mess up the win for the Los Angeles Dodgers who have all the sudden won four in a row for the first time since last year’s six game streak from September 26th to October 1st. The latest was a 6-5 win at the expense of a struggling San Francisco Giants team Tuesday night as Matt Kemp made his return from the disabled list.
A back and forth game...
In a continuing effort to interact with fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers I decided to answer some questions from twitter followers. This will be the first of what I hope are many Dodgers Mailbag posts as we cover the team here at Valley Bay News. Thank you for the questions and be sure to tell your friends and twitter friends about me and Valley Bay News so that you can help us grow...
