Stokke: Brandon McCarthy proving his worth for the Dodgers

PHOENIX — If Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Brandon McCarthy suffers from a fear of missing out, it’s hard to blame him. He’s never pitched in a playoff game, only watching his 2005 Chicago White Sox win the World Series, his 2012 Oakland Athletics lose in Game 5 of the ALDS and his 2015 Los Angeles Dodgers […] The post Stokke: Brandon McCarthy proving his worth for the Dodgers...

The Dodgers Used Leverage To Improve Their Bullpen Results

If at the beginning of the season I told you that the Los Angeles Dodgers would have one of the strongest bullpens by the end of July, you would've thought I was crazy. It would have played out on Twitter as, "The Dodgers will have one of the strongest bullpens by July. Don't @ me."

Trivia: 100-inning pitchers and the Dodgers

Among the rarities of this Dodger season, it’s increasingly likely the 2016 team will have only three pitchers finish the year with at least 100 innings — the lowest number in franchise history.

Against all odds, the Dodgers are Major League Baseball’s hottest team

Could Clayton Kershaw's injury hinder trade talks?

When Clayton Kershaw went down with a back injury on June 26, it seemed as if the Los Angeles Dodgers were heading for disaster.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Dodgers starting rotation had an ERA over four and lacked any consistency. Combine that with an offense that...
