Found October 16, 2013 on The Last Angry Fan:
Facing elimination in Game 5 of the NLCS, the Dodgers trotted out Hollywood superstar Will Ferrell to announce the team’s starting lineup. Apparently the actor was the team’s good luck charm as Zack Greinke, whom Ferrell referred to as “today’s winning pitcher,” went seven strong innings in L.A.’s 6-4 win. The Anchorman star has done this sort of thing before with equally hilarious results, and while it may not be logistically possible, we’d love to see it passed into law that Will Ferrell has to announce the starting lineups for every team, before every game, in every sport. At the very least it’d save us from a Land of the Lost sequel. [Deadspin] The post Will Ferrell announced Dodgers lineup before Game 5 in most Will Ferrell way imaginable appeared first on Last Angry Fan.

Yasiel Puig loses fly ball in the sun (GIF)

Los Angeles Dodgers rookie right fielder Yasiel Puig had some trouble with a fly ball in the ninth inning of Wednesday's NLCS Game 5 after losing it in the sun. St. Louis Cardinals batter Matt Holliday hit the fly ball to right field, and Puig seemed to turn away at the last minute and let the ball drop. Based on the video, we can't dispute Puig's claim that the...

WATCH: Yasiel Puig lost a ball in the sun

Some people have been waiting all playoffs for Yasiel Puig to make the kind of error in the field that he made during the regular season. For the most part, the Los Angeles Dodgers fielder has avoided bad plays that made guys like Jon Jay and Evan Gattis headlines. But Puig did miss a ball […]

Bryan Cranston was in the crowd at Dodgers/Cardinals game

Is it just me or does Bryan Cranston look a little tense in the screengrab from the TBS telecast of last night’s Dodgers/Cardinals NLCS game? It’s almost as if he’s watching Breaking Bad or something! Sadly, Cranston’s presence at Dodger Stadium didn’t help the team, which fell behind in the series 3-1, making a Red Sox/Cardinals World Series seem like even more of an...

Will Ferrell Announces Dodgers’ Starting Lineup, Introduces Zack Greinke as ‘Today’s Winning Pitcher’ (Video)

The Dodgers are on the brink of elimination, facing the Cardinals in Game 5 in Los Angeles, but they brought out a secret weapon before the do-or-die game — and, no, the rally bear did not make a triumphant return. Will Ferrell graced Dodger Stadium prior to first pitch and announced the Dodgers’ lineup like only Ron Burgundy could. Ferrell has been promoting “Anchorman 2...

Dodgers expect both Hanley Ramirez and Andre Ethier to start Game Six

October is the time of year when even broken bones aren’t going to keep baseball players out of the lineup. Both Andre Ethier and Hanley Ramirez are aiming to be on the field for the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight when they try to avoid elimination for the second time against the St. Louis Cardinals, even though they both have small fractures. According to MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick...

The Identity Of The Dodgers Rally Bear Is Revealed

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ could have used their “Rally Bear” last night as they lost to the St. Louis Cardinals by the score of 4-2. However their official unofficial mascot was kicked out of Dodgers Stadium after his spirited appearance during Monday’s 3-0 win. On Tuesday the identity of this super mascot was revealed and his name is Mark Monninger. The man behind the bear...

Tuesday is 25th anniversary of Kirk Gibson's mythic World Series HR

On October 15, 1988, Game One of the World Series was played at Dodger Stadium between the Dodgers and the Oakland Athletics. Kirk Gibson was an unlikely hero that night, and here’s a quick rundown on why. The A’s had nearly a week to rest after sweeping the Red Sox while it took the Dodgers seven full games (including a complete seventh game from pitcher Orel Hershiser) to get...

Andre Ethier Has Got The MLB Playoff Suit Game On Lock

  The Dodgers twitter account knows a great suit when they see one, and they called out their own Andre Ethier for his fantastic gameday appearance. Is that a finger wag or thumbs up? Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Dodgers Unveil Bear Mascot Last Night, Only... They Really Didn't...

((HT: thegoodbyemailbox)) Hey, look!!! The Dodgers broke this new guy out during the NLCS last night... Tremendous timing... great marketing... Just think of the merchandising opportunities... Oh, wait... It wasn't endorsed... the guy inside the bear suit got arrested and booted from Dodger Stadium...

Andre Ethier’s awful suit may cause blindness, nausea, seizures

It takes guts to wear a suit this hideous—guts and a misguided sense of fashion. Apparently Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier possesses both in spades. Even Craig Sager would find this in poor taste, and he routinely looks as if he’s been taking fashion advice from Stevie Wonder. The Dodgers official Twitter account posted the pic of Ethier and his technicolor dreamcoat outfit...

Will Ferrell Reads The Starting Lineup For The Los Angeles Dodgers Before Game 5 Of The NLCS

Before Game 5 of the NLCS between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Dodgers, comedian Will Ferrell read the starting lineup for the hometown Dodgers. He has done this before for the New Orleans Hornets/Pelicans and I think it was much funnier. This rendition was just flat out racist if you ask me. But, I’m sure a lot of people got a kick out of it. Since TBS missed...

The Mickey Mouse Club

The dancing bear appears to be getting mixed reviews over on the FB page... While I do no think the Dodgers should ever have a mascot, I did enjoy the Bear's antics. It was fun and lighthearted. Full of emotion. It was organic and just came naturally to the man behind the bear. Just like the emotion that ALL our Dodgers play with. And last night, specifically...
