Can Dodgers Crush All-Time Record for Doubles in a Season?

Coming into today’s travel day north to the Bay to face rival San Francisco, the Los Angeles Dodgers are riding a seven-game winning streak. Pitching was an obvious strength coming into this season and, even with a semi-human Clayton Kershaw, they have been as advertised. It doesn’t seem that their offense was ever in question, but yesterday’s 14-hit barrage ensured the winning...

What can the Los Angeles Dodgers learn from Kris Bryant and the Cubs?

The first couple weeks of the MLB season were headlined by the Chicago Cubs and top prospect Kris Bryant. In short, Bryant is the best prospect in baseball and dominated Spring Training, but began the season in the minor leagues. Had Bryant began the season in the majors, 2015 would count as a full year against him and he would be eligible to become a free agent after the 2020...

Making the Case for Alex Guerrero in L.A.

The Dodgers may have caught lightning in a bottle when Alex Guerrero (hitting 5-for-14 with 2 HR and 8 RBI) stepped in to start at third base on April 12. However, Don Mattingly decided he would rather go with his 36-year-old journeyman, Juan Uribe (who by the way is hitting a paltry .214 with two runs scored and no extra base hits so far this year) now that he’s healthy instead...

Three Takeaways from Dodgers’ First Two Weeks

3. Zack Greinke’s Best Year with the Dodgers May Come in 2015 Clayton Kershaw has been surprisingly human through the first two weeks of this MLB season. However, in the absence of the MVP-level Kershaw, Greinke has had a stellar start to the year. Greinke has started the year with two wins in three starts, and no losses. His 12 hits allowed and two walks over 19.2 innings pitched...

Dodgers 6, Rockies 3: 6 In A Row & Juan Uribe Stole A Base

The Dodgers beat the Rockies 6-3 on Saturday night for their sixth win in a row, which is something the 2014 team did not accomplish until July 31. Zack Greinke pitched six innings of one-run ball before running into trouble in the seventh. Greinke got to two outs and was one strike away from stranding a runner at third, but D.J. LeMahieu hit a two-run bomb that ended his night...

Rockies @ Dodgers April 18, 2015: Puig is Back

All the other news can wait: Yasiel Puig is back! Puig hasn’t played since Monday, resting due to a tight hamstring. After so much confusion in the media reports regarding if he was closer to healthy or to the disabled list, it appears that it’s the former. Hopefully the Dodgers aren’t rushing him, though it’s good to see him back in the lineup. Andre Ethier has actually...

The NL’s Richest Arms Finally Get into Win Column

Finally. Major League Baseball’s two highest paid pitchers got into the win column Friday night. Max Scherzer and Clayton Kershaw showed why they are both $200-million pitchers, and the clear cut National League Cy Young candidates of 2015. Max Scherzer was the most sought after free agent in baseball this offseason. The 2013 American League Cy Young Award winner had a 2014 campaign...

Are the Los Angeles Dodgers the deepest team in baseball?

In the offseason, the Los Angeles Dodgers lost Matt Kemp, Dee Gordon and Hanley Ramirez. So far in 2015, those three are a combined 38-for-114 (.333 average) and have each come up big for their respective teams. For a team to lose one of those players in an offseason would be tough to overcome. All three in the same offseason? It would take a huge team effort to make up for those...

Jackie Robinson Day 2015

“A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” ~ Jackie Robinson April 15th has been dedicated by the MLB as Jackie Robinson Day since 2004. It’s a day dedicated to the memory of a man who faced the worst of man’s hatred and racism with poise, grace, and non-violence.

Both Los Angeles Dodgers and Catcher Yasmani Grandal Unconcerned About Numbers Behind the Plate

(Mandatory Credit: Jake Roth/USA TODAY) “He’s been unbelievable back there,” Dodgers’ pitcher Zack Greinke said of his teammate and freshman Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal, “His catching is better than advertised.” When it comes to Grandal’s “advertising,” the jury is still out. He’s universally hailed as one of the best pitch-framers in the league. From 2007...

Puig is cutting back on bat flips

In some of the most depressing bat flip related news we’ve ever heard, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is going to be making an effort to cut back on his theatric, entertaining bat flips this season. Why? Because he doesn’t want to give off the impression that he’s disrespectful. The LA Times has the quotes. Though acknowledging that some fans are entertained...

Three games into the season, Gonzalez’s bat is pure fire

Yes, it’s early. The 2015 MLB season hasn’t even completed its first week yet. As of this writing, no team has played more than three games. But if MVP awards were handed out before teams have finished their opening series of the year, Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez would probably hoard all the votes. In his first 13 plate appearances of the very young season, Gonzalez...

Adrian Gonzalez early home runs are an MLB record

Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is on pace for 270 home runs this season. The 32-year-old will probably come up just a bit short of that number when all is said and done, but Gonzalez can’t miss at the moment.

Adrian Gonzalez hits three HRs, off to historic start

Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is on quite the roll early this season. Repeating his power days from late last decade, the 32-year-old veteran has popped a ridiculous five homers in the team’s first three games. On Wednesday night alone, Gonzalez hit a homer in his first three at-bats against the division-rival San Diego Padres. As SB Nation points out,...

Industry sources estimate TWC losing $100M a year on Dodgers

While the value of televised sports rights just seems to keep rising, those rights aren’t always ensuring a profit for broadcasters or translating into more access for fans. The most glaring case in point might be the debacle of Time Warner Cable’s acquisition of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ TV rights ahead of last season. Time Warner paid $8.35 billion to control those rights...
