Los Angeles Dodgers isportsweb awards

Despite a horrorshow of a postseason, the Los Angeles Dodgers had a regular season to be proud of. They overcame a 9.5 game deficit in less than a month, saw a pitching season for the record books, and announced that Vin Scully would be returning for his 66th season as the voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Here, I will present some awards for individual performances by the Dodgers...

Five thoughts on the Division Series

Credit: Mark J. Terrill/AP It’s official. The divisional round of the MLB postseason is the toughest to predict in sports. It’s tougher to predict than the men’s college basketball tournament or golf’s majors. These are just five examples: 1. The demise of the Angels was hitting, not pitching. With so many high scoring games going in the postseason, it’s interesting that...

Yadier Molina: “If you’re going to scream at me you’ve got to be ready to fight”

Benches cleared in Game 1 of the NLDS between the Cardinals and Dodgers yesterday after Adam Wainwright hit Yasiel Puig with a pitch. Things escalated when Adrian Gonzalez walked to the plate and began jawing with Yadier Molina. The two went nose-to-nose before eventually being separated. Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch got Molina’s take on the incident after the...

Benches clear in Cardinals-Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals, who have a history of animosity, had a benches-clearing incident in the third inning of their first National League Division Series game Friday night after Adam Wainwright hit Yasiel Puig with a 90 mph fastball. Puig was taking his base when the Dodgers' Adrian Gonzalez and Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina got into a heated argument...

No time for petty drama during the playoffs

Look at the picture above. It’s stupid. And unnecessary. All of it. First, some context. In case you missed, which you probably didn’t if you’re reading this website, Yadier Molina and Adrian Gonzalez got into a pretty heated discussion last night after Adam Wainwright hit Yasiel Puig with a 90 mph pitch in a 1-1 count. These two teams have history in this [...]

Yadier Molina to Adrian Gonzalez: “You can’t talk to me like that”

On the face of it, when you see a 10-9 score in the Game 1 of the NLDS in a game between two historic franchises, you automatically assume it was a great game with plenty of fireworks.  And oh, there were fireworks alright, of all shapes and sizes. The Los Angeles Dodgers got to St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright.  And then the Cardinals got to the Dodgers ace, Clayton Kershaw...

Greener Pastures – Part 1

I suppose I’m unlike most fans in that I usually harbor no ill will towards players that leave the Red Sox, unless they bolt for the Yankees a la Johnny Damon.  Even Jacoby Ellsbury signing with the Yankees didn’t get me that upset.  Usually when a Red Sox player leaves, either via trade or free agency, I wish them well and think back on our time together family.  So watching...

Benches Clear After Adam Wainwright Hits Yasiel Puig (Video)

NLDS Game 1, Part 2: This Is Going Really, Really Well

So… anything interesting happen so far? THIS COULD NOT BE BETTER. Because of the increased traffic during playoff games, we’ll likely have at least one in-game thread reset, and that’s this. At the moment, the Dodgers are up 6-1 in the middle of the fifth inning. Randal Grichuk surprisingly took Clayton Kershaw deep in the first inning, and then after the requisite amount of...

Dodgers finish regular season with a 10-5 clobbering of Rockies

AT THE PLATE: Adrian Gonzalez hit a three-run home run in the third inning to finish the season with 116 runs batted in, the most in the major leagues. Gonzalez finished five RBIs ahead of Mike Trout of the Angels. "It's definitely something cool to be able to say you accomplished one year," Gonzalez said. Gonzalez had never led the league in RBIs. Third baseman Juan...

End of Season Fantasy Baseball First Base Rankings

Detroit Tigers teammates Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez could both arguably be the MVP of the American League.  Martinez was the most valuable fantasy baseball player, with an ADP of around 140 (11th round in 12 team leagues).  Jose Abreu powered his way to the American League Rookie of the Year award with 36 home runs and 107 RBI, not to mention his .317 BA.  Anthony ...

2014′s King Of Driving In Runners

On Sunday, Adrian Gonzalez had two hits, including his 27th homer of the season, and drove in three runs in the Dodgers’ season-ending 10-5 win over Colorado. Already all but guaranteed to lead the NL in runs batted in, the three he brought in yesterday ensured that he’d top Mike Trout and lead all of baseball for […]

Adrian Gonzalez hits 26th homer in Los Angeles Dodgers’ 12-inning victory against Rockies

Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez leaned back on his chair at his locker Saturday ahead of his team’s game against the Colorado Rockies. He had just finished talking boxing — which he loves — with a reporter. He was relaxed. When it comes to baseball, he can’t allow himself to chill out too much. That’s why, even though the Dodgers clinched the NL West title on Wednesday...

Dodgers 8, Cubs 5: Matt Kemp saves the bullpen game

No starting pitcher, no problem … ish. The Dodgers much-maligned bullpen came through — kinda — in Sunday’s 8-5 victory in Chicago. The Dodgers took three of the four games in the series after a terrible collapse yesterday. But the real story of this game was Matt Kemp, who went 4-for-5 with a 2-run home run and four RBIs. Kemp continued his really strong second half, which...

Cubs 8, Dodgers 7: Adrian Gonzalez Brings The Rain, Bullpen Brings The Pain

Roberto Hernandez wasn’t particularly sharp today, which is becoming a usual trend. The Dodger offense was certainly active and gave the team a big lead, but depending on the bullpen this much was going to backfire at some point, and the Dodgers ultimately fell 8-7. Hernandez only lasted four plus innings, allowing two runs while striking out four and walking two. He has not...

Los Angeles Dodgers Make 3 Errors on One Awful, Ugly Play

The Los Angeles Dodgers currently sit atop the National League West Division, but that doesn’t mean they can’t play some awful baseball. What should have been a relatively routine play in the top of the sixth inning against the Padres last night turned into an absolute debacle. Three different Dodgers committed an error on the play, allowing two runners to score on a relatively...

Adrian Gonzalez playing his way into MVP discussion, kinda

It’s always nice when superstar players remember they have superstar potential, and Adrian Gonzalez is that guy right now. And he’s playing in such a way that he’ll garner some MVP votes. He won’t win it, but he’ll get some consideration (and too much of it has to do with his fifth consecutive 100-plus RBI season). *arbitrary endpoints alert* Since his 5-RBI game against...
