Dodgers' play reminiscent of Roberts

As a player, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts understood that baseball games typically are won by the team that makes the fewest mistakes. And maybe that's the larger story of these Los Angeles Dodgers, who on Sunday clinched their fourth straight National League West championship.

Urias may have inside track on NLDS Game 4

For the past month, Dodgers management had insisted that heavy usage on the 20-year-old's left arm required him to be a reliever for the rest of the season. But manager Dave Roberts did a reversal on Tuesday, naming Julio Urias to start Thursday night in San Diego and saying he was "still on the table" to be the fourth starter in the postseason.

Injuries hinder Nationals, give Dodgers chance to catch them for HFA

After the Dodgers accomplished their first goal of winning the National League West, the next goal becomes home-field advantage — in the NLDS, at least, since the Cubs have literally won 100 games and cannot be caught. The Nationals have been ahead of the Dodgers in league standings virtually all season, but now sit just one game up with each team having six games to play. While...

A fond farewell to Vin Scully

Oh no, not again. Anyone with grandparents knows the familiar situation where the generation gap becomes a little too wide, and the senior member of the conversation brings up those four words that usually result in a heavy eye roll. “Back in my day.” Yes, there is something to be learned about the past, and how we as humanity have gotten to where we have. But after about...

Dodgers’ potential postseason roster not easy to predict

Now that the Dodgers have officially clinched the NL West (you can stop wanting to murder me, Chad), it’s time to look at the postseason roster. There are, obviously, the locks, but the final few spots are definitely up for debate. The roster will shrink back to 25 active players for the playoffs. In fact, September is the only time in the baseball season when the active roster...

Dodgers tip cap to Vin Scully after his last call

The baseball gods proved on Sunday that they do exist. In what was Vin Scully’s final game calling Dodgers games before he retires, the Dodgers rallied with a tying home run in the ninth, and then capped it all off with a walk-off home run to win it in the 10th. Charlie Culberson smacked his first home run of the season at the right time as his walk-off shot gave the Dodgers...

Does Bumgarner benefit from a double standard, or does the Giants pitcher just have a tendency to be a jerk who gets into skirmishes all the time? Bonta Hill and Eddie Maisonet explore the possibilities of MadBum being a bully.

Kenta Maeda, Then and Now

In 2012, Kenta Maeda threw a curveball or two a game. He threw three or four four-seam fastballs for every sinker. He was a four-seam/slider guy with the occasional changeup, is what he was. And that’s what I had to work with when I tried to find a comp for him and settled on pitchers like Aaron Nola and a young Kenshin Kawakami. I was probably wrong, but it’s also possible...
