The Victory Formation:
The San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers sometimes don’t get nearly enough publicity as they should for being such a fierce rivalry. Heck, they followed one another from NYC to California to keep things going. They renew their rivalry this weekend, and Buster Posey delivered the first big knockout punch of the year between the two with the game tied at 2, nobody on base, and a 3-2 count: The walk-off HR is so much more exciting than any other ending in sports (with the exception of a Game 7 goal in OT of the Stanley Cup playoffs). It isn’t shocking that Posey was the one to deliver in the tight spot last night. That’s what your leader does. This was a great way to end a game that began in a pretty awesome way as well.

When the Los Angeles Dodgers made the big August trade with the Boston Red Sox last season to acquire Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, and Nick Punto, there was major concern over one player. The concern was always over Crawford not Beckett.
Crawford, although currently nursing a hamstring, has produced quite nicely on the field. In the 25 games Crawford has been in...

collided with an umpire while chasing a foul ball. The soreness...
This is a quick video I was able to shoot/edit of Angelo Songco ripping a double to the right-center field gap on Thursday against Stockton Ports' pitcher Jeremy Brown.
Songco is coming off a terrible season that was shortened by injury. He's not hitting particularly well so far this season (.267/.306/.396), but he does have a decent bat. He was fantastic in the California...
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly doesn't expect injured shortstop Hanley Ramirez back from the disabled list any time soon.
Ramirez thinks his skipper is wrong and isn't certain he needed to go out.
The Dodgers put Hanley Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left hamstring. The team made the move Saturday, a day after he hurt...
Dodgers' left handed pitcher Ted Lilly was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a rib-cage muscle strain. The move was made to make room for Clayton Kershaw, who was on the bereavement list since Monday after the death of his father.

"Lilly, who started the season on the disabled list after shoulder surgery, made his...
The San Francisco Giants extended a streak from ten games to eleven in which a Giants’ starting pitcher has not earned a victory with their 10-9 extra inning victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. The streak , dating back to April 21 when Barry Zito beat the San Diego Padres, is the longest span without a victory dating back to August 4-18, 2010 (a span of 14 games).
The San Francisco Giants held a "Metallica Night," which included having the band itself shred the national anthem (aka "Star Spangled Banner").
The Los Angeles Dodgers have activated left handed pitcher Clayton Kershaw from the bereavement list. To make room for him, the Dodgers consequently placed left handed pitcher Ted Lilly on the 15-day disabled liste with a right rib cage injury.

Manager Bruce Bochy teases Buster Posey all the time that there is not much more he can accomplish considering how much he has done already at all of age 26 - Rookie of the Year, NL batting champion and MVP, two World Series championships.
Add his first walkoff home run to that remarkable list.
Posey hit a game-ending home run into the left-field seats leading off the bottom of...
I think this is a most appropriate post considering it's Free Comic Book Day. No, my modest Silver Age comic collection is not on display today. Instead, I'll feature this sweeeeeet 1/1 custom sketch card of one of the newest Dodgers.It's actually the second custom sketch card I've snagged off of eBay for a stellar and cheap price. This is the "blue 1/1,"...

Sometimes a cliche is just that - a simple saying that has become so overused that it no longer has any meaning outside of being a one-liner. No cliche in baseball gets more use than “you can never have too much pitching.” It seems like the phrase is used during every game, whether the man on the mound is performing...
