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.

Exactly seven days before the last regular season game, the Los Angeles Dodgers clinched their fourth straight National League West division title in the most dramatic way possible. Not only was it the Dodgers’ final home game of the regular season, it was also Vin Scully’s final home game ever. It was literally the last chance the Dodgers could celebrate with their fans, and...
Vin Scully’s legendary career is coming to a heartbreaking end. The heartbreak isn’t from the end itself, but from the loss what will not come in the future. For 66 years, Scully’s silky delivery and almanac-like knowledge has been the voice of baseball for generations of the games fans. He has been there for some of the leagues greatest moments from walk-off shots to perfect...
One of my favorite things about baseball is how Clayton Kershaw has never been able to master a changeup. There’s absolutely no one in baseball who needs a changeup less than Clayton Kershaw, but, drive is drive. He’s been frustrated by his own lack of progress, because as far as he’s concerned, he’ll forever see room for improvement. He still has an ERA. Runs are mistakes...
Miller: Dodgers clinch NL West with 4-3 win over Colorado, a storybook ending for a stellar storyteller
LOS ANGELES – What do you give as a retirement gift to a great storyteller? Easy. A great story. So the Dodgers on Sunday clinched the National League West title on their final swing, on a home run by a man who hadn’t homered in more than two...
He stood at the plate as Charlie Culberson. Twenty-four seconds later, his helmet flung in the air, his feet barely touching the ground, he returned … as Charlie Culberson. Never before in Los Angeles Dodger history had a player stood in the batters’ box with no one on base, taken a swing — and won a […]

At just 22 years old, Corey Seager has emerged as the Dodgers' best player and perhaps one of the best players in the National League. The way Seager has played so far beyond his age in 2016, it shouldn't come as a surprise that he led his team to its biggest win of the season Sunday.

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.

A number of Dodgers had personal connections with José Fernández, such as Austin Barnes, Chris Hatcher and Kiké Hernández, who all played in the Marlins organization with the All-Star right-hander.

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Dodgers have scratched Rich Hill from his scheduled start Sunday in the series finale against Colorado because of a blister that forced him to miss a month earlier in the season.

Yasiel Puig is aiming to prove that he can still be a valuable asset on a major league roster, and he is hoping to better his game by playing winter ball during the offseason. As J.P. Hoornstra of the Orange County Register noted on Thursday, Puig wants to play in the Dominican Republic this winter. The 25-year-old has not played winter ball since 2012, when he appeared in 20 Puerto...
In 1950, the Brooklyn Dodgers finished 2 games out of first place in the National League, behind a .400-OBP, 7-WAR season from Jackie Robinson, three players cracking 30 Home Runs (Roy Campanella, Gil Hodges, and Duke Snider), and plenty of pitching from workhorses Don Newcombe and Preacher Roe.

Once again Madison Bumgarner has found a reason to flip his lid as his recent dustup with Yasiel Puig started up due to Puig's "looking" at Bumgarner. 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.
It started with a simple play at first base. Now the Yasiel Puig-Madison Bumgarner fight has turned into a gift-giving situation. In about 24 hours, a bench-clearing brawl started by Puig and Bumgarner has resulted in a walk-off win for Puig and the Los Angeles Dodgers, a set of t-shirts being made, and Puig sending Bumgarner one of those shirts in an attempt to make a joke out...
