Dodgers N/A, Rockies N/A: The Dodgers didn’t lose!

The Dodgers and Rockies got as close to starting the game today as Tyler Anderson throwing warm-up pitches for the top of the first. Unfortunately, he was doing so in a downpour, and the umpires eventually made the smart call to bring out the tarp.

But somehow, someway, Jansen has blown six of […] The post Kenley Jansen proving blown saves can...

Though Dodgers fans may have been freaking out, those in the front...

Will Yasiel Puig rejoin the Dodgers this season?

As the trade deadline was approaching, the Dodgers dissatisfaction with Yasiel Puig only continued to grow. The organization felt as if Puig was immature, he wouldn’t properly rehab his injuries which only made him more prone to reinjuring them, and the Dodgers felt as if Puig wasn’t properly preparing himself for games.
