Another profitable day yesterday, winning my only play of the Giants over the Brewers, and improving my season record to 13-5, +$808.  Let’s see if I can keep it going today with the following: Dodgers +104 over Diamondbacks Bet $150 No team is hotter than the Dodgers, who boast a league best record of 30-13.  They’ve won six straight and eight of their last 10 games, and send Ted Lilly (5-0, 1.79 ERA) out against Joe Saunders (2-3, 3.55).  The Dodgers are 12-2 in Lilly’s last 14 starts, 5-0 in his last five road starts, and 8-0 in his last eight starts against a team with a losing record.  He is aided by an offense that has scored six or more runs in five of his seven starts this season.  Andre Ethier has five hits in 10 at bats with a home run against Saunders.  Meanwhile, the Diamondbacks are 5-12 in their last 17 games, 3-14 in their last 17 at home, and 0-5 in their last five vs. a left-handed starter.  One of their hottest hitters, Justin Upton, is only 2 for 25 with six st...

Andre Ethier won’t impose a deadline on contract talks

According to Bill Shakin of the L.A. Times, Andre Ethier “does not plan to impose a deadline on negotiations on the contract extension that could keep him out of free agency.” Dodgers GM, Ned Colletti, who said that he would like to sign Ethier to a contract extension, already spoke with the new Dodgers' president, Stan Kasten, about that matter. The outfielder said that...

No felony charges for 4 in Dodger Stadium fight

Los Angeles County prosecutors declined to file felony charges Tuesday against four men arrested for a postgame beating and brawl outside Dodger Stadium, an incident that stoked memories of the vicious beating last season of a San Francisco Giants fan, but proved far less serious. Because all the injuries involved were minor and investigators could not determine who instigated Sunday...

Magic Johnson, Matt Kemp's Sports Illustrated Photo Shoot, Signal the Beginning of Star-Studded Union

Magic Johnson and Matt Kemp are a match made in Heaven for Los Angeles. Johnson –– the team's new owner and former Lakers point guard–– and Kemp –– the Dodgers' All-Star outfielder –– were paired together for a photo shoot recently as they will both be on the cover of Sports Illustrated. In their own ways, they both bridge the dynamic between sports talent...

Dodgers exec wants Winter Classic

Dodger Stadium, home of the Los Angeles Dodgers. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Oh boy most of us are probably just chomping at the bit to see this hockey game. Or not! I see these outdoor games as a distraction away from the actual hockey game. Hey I admit, that I liked the 24/7 Flyers and Rangers on HBO this past winter; that was an awesome show and you got to know the players...

Kevin Youkilis Could Pique Interest of Los Angeles Dodgers, Other NL West Teams (Video)

Manager Bobby Valentine made it perfectly clear on Wednesday that he wants Kevin Youkilis in a Red Sox uniform, and that he doesn't foresee a trade involving the corner infielder. If the Red Sox were to open up the phone lines, though, they'd likely have plenty of suitors. Youkilis has proven to be a valuable player over the years when healthy, and there's reason to believe...
