Dodgers 5, Pirates 2: Finally, Edinson Volquez Is Good For Something

When your offense is struggling what do you do? Well, you just find one of the worst pitchers in baseball, of course. Old friend (I guess) Edinson Volquez certainly fits the bill, and he provided just what the Dodgers needed: terrible, terrible pitching that’s conducive to offense. Volquez allowed 13 baserunners (10 hits) in 5.2 innings, allowing five earned runs, and was more...

Dodgers sign Mexican 1B Eric Meza, Venezuelan C Keivert Ruiz

The Dodgers may have found the next Adrian Gonzalez. Well, not really. But they did sign Mexican first baseman in Eric Meza. They did so late on July 2, which is why he wasn’t in the first post about July 2 prospects. Meza’s bonus amount is unknown. Odds are, it wasn’t a significant amount of money and shouldn’t really have an impact on the Dodgers signing pool. Meza is...

Dodgers 4, Cardinals 3: Costliest Win Of The Year

…aaaaaand exhale, because wow, did a lot just happen there. Clayton Kershaw was fine, but hardly up to his usual standards. I know that sounds weird when you consider that he struck out eight, walked one, and allowed three earned runs in seven innings. For most any other pitcher in baseball, that’s a pretty great night. For Kershaw, it was one of his lesser outings of the year...

Cardinals fall behind late, lose to Dodgers 4-3 in finale

ST. LOUIS -- Adrian Gonzalez hit a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning off St. Louis Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal and the Los Angeles Dodgers salvaged the finale of a three-game series with a 4-3 victory on Sunday night.

Trading Crawford, Beckett and Gonzalez: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Thank you, Rubby At the time it happened, the trade of Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Adrian Gonzalez cleared some overpaid, non-performing detritus from our coffers. And, for the most part, seeing those smug mugs sent packing was reward enough. But it’s good to see that trade still paying dividends for us, a year after winning the World Series. Rubby De La Rosa, who was part...

Dodgers 8, Rockies 2: So Long, Colorado

We’re going to lightning-round this one out, because the Rockies are terrible and no one paid attention to this game past the sixth inning and oh my god it still took four hours and there’s another post coming. The featured image to this post is Adrian Gonzalez sliding safely into home, which was funny because the bases were loaded and catcher Wilin Rosario decided he didn...

Dodgers @ Rockies July 3, 2014: Here Come The Lefties

This afternoon, the Dodgers are starting a four game series against the Rockies in Coors field. Given what usually happens to Dodgers there, that’s pretty terrifying.

The following starters are lined up to pitch against the Dodgers: Franklin Morales, TBD, Jorge De La Rosa, and Yohan Flande...

Luck, Lonnie and the ever-elusive 7-2-4 Triple Play

The Cleveland Indians took to Dodger Stadium hoping to avenge their history-making back-to-back nights of amassing just one hit—and did they ever. While starting pitcher Justin Masterson was yanked after three-plus (wildly lucky) innings and the Dodgers had runners on base throughout the night, the Tribe bats logged 13 hits on the night, finishing with a score of 10-3. Here are...

Indians’ Crazy Triple Play Upheld After Two Video Challenges (Video)

The addition of Major League Baseball’s new replay system has been a contentious issue for some baseball purists. On Tuesday, however, that system helped the Cleveland Indians pull off one of the most impressive triple plays in recent memory against the Los Angeles Dodgers. With nobody out and runners on first and third, Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez hit a shallow fly...

WATCH: Indians turn unconventional triple play

Triple plays are rare. Two teams challenging different parts of the same play is even more rare. Both happened at once in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. In the 4th inning, Adrian Gonzalez flew out to Michael Brantley in left field with runners on the corners and nobody out. Dee Gordon tried to tag from third base, but a perfect throw from Brantley nailed the speedy Gordon at home...

Indians turn double review triple play

Instant replay has done a lot of things this season, but it broke new ground during the fifth inning of Tuesday's Indians-Dodgers game. The Tribe turned a triple play but needed replay in order for it to happen. With runners on first and third and none out, Adrian Gonzalez flied out to Michael Brantley. Dee Gordon, who is one of the fastest runners in the National League, tagged...

The Dodger Offense and Revised Projections

Last week, I took a look at player projection systems, specifically focusing on the Dodger offense. The purpose of the post was to describe how recent research has shown that revised in-season projections were correct on average. The post went on to examine which Dodgers were over and under-performing their Rest of Season projections. There’s another angle which needs to be examined...

Indians hitters make history with back-to-back one hit games

It wasn’t Kluber’s fault. Corey Kluber entered the game with a streak of 10 straight scoreless innings. He was superb again, allowing just one run on six hits in six and two-thirds innings. He walked one and struck out five. Kluber ran into a jam in the fourth. With one out, Adrian Gonzalez beat the infield shift with a grounder down the third base line. Chisenhall made a nice...

Rockies @ Dodgers June 17, 2014: I’m Sad For Chad Billingsley

Yesterday, I wondered why in the world Andre Ethier would be sitting against a righty, and pondered a reality in which he would then be back in the lineup against a lefty. Now, with lefty Colorado rookie Tyler Matzek on the mound, that’s exactly what’s happened. Ethier is in the lineup. Now, that’s a bit too harsh of course, because Scott Van Slyke is also in the lineup, taking...
