Dodgers weathering some April showers

By Cary Osborne The Dodgers are two games under .500. It’s also April 22. The Dodgers were two games under .500 on May 21 and didn’t hit their stride until July. That’s not to say that their 11–5 loss on Saturday to the Diamondbacks in Arizona wasn’t disappointing. And it doesn’t make the pill go down quicker with the fact that they lost 13–5 to the Diamondbacks...

D-backs 11, Dodgers 5: On the struggles of Kenta Maeda and the Dodgers

Unfortunately, Maeda hasn’t gotten off to a very good start this year. In three games and 14 innings pitched, he has an ERA of 7.07, a FIP of 4.54 …

Dodgers Bullpen: Who’s the Best 8th-Inning Relief Option?

While most pieces of the bullpen have shown flashes of brilliance during the young 2017 campaign, Friday evening’s implosion against the Diamondbacks left many fans of the Dodgers wondering if the relief corps has the structural integrity to hold up over the long haul, or if the front office crew will feel the need to go shopping for a few upgrades before the trade deadline arrives...

Why can't the Dodgers put a finger on Rich Hill's blister problem?

There's a learning curve on how to bide one's time on a disabled list. Rich Hill, thanks to his curveball, is accelerating in this practice at a blistering pace. Strange, but can anyone put their finger on what exactly is causing him problems throwing this high-spin-rate pitch at the mature age of 37? When big-league pitchers of a certain age are trying to save their careers, isn...
