Dodgers' Hernandez becomes real-life rally banana in win over Giants

Dodgers utilityman **** Hernandez taught everyone an important lesson on Monday: If you can't contribute on the field, you can still encourage your teammates by dressing up as a banana. Hernandez, who was put on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring injury in the afternoon, rallied his teammates to a 5-4, 14-inning win against the Giants later that night with the help of his...

Cubs @ Dodgers August 28, 2015: Okay, So It Is A Benching

Oh, right. A home game. I barely remember what those are like, it’s been so long. The last time the Dodgers played in Los Angeles, Wilton Guerrero, Ron Cey, and Carl Furillo were all in the lineup. I think. (*Note: may not be true.) Cubs Dodgers 7:10 p.m. Los Angeles CF Fowler SS Rollins RF Denorfia 2B Utley...

Gonzalez confident he'll return to lineup after fouling pitch off his knee

Dodger fans found themselves fiddling their fingers when Adrian Gonzalez left Thursday's game early with an injury, but the first baseman assures it's not serious. In the third inning of the Dodgers' 1-0 win over the Reds in Cincinnati on Thursday, Gonzalez fouled a ball off his knee (watch here), and was seen wincing in pain after the incident. While he finished his at-bat and...

The return of a different Adrian Gonzalez

By Jeff Sullivan I find that writing goes in phases, and they can be unpredictable. I don’t know when it’s going to be a good writing week. I don’t know when it’s going to be a bad writing week. And I don’t know what I’m next going to find interesting. For example, I feel like I spent a good year or two zoning in on pitch-framing, which I thought was just the coolest...

Watch: Phillips turns around, toys with Gonzalez while taking lead

Brandon Phillips has discovered a unique way to avoid getting back-picked on first base. During the eighth inning of the Cincinnati Reds' 5-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday, Phillips singled with two outs to move Joey Votto into scoring position and potentially spark a two-out rally. In an attempt to ensure he wouldn't kill the Reds' rally by being back-picked at first...

Three Years Later: Revisiting the Red Sox/Dodgers Trade

Beckett, Gonzalez, and Crawford were supposed to be Red Sox mainstays in 2012. Instead, they were sent packing three years ago. In the fall of 2011, the Boston Red Sox hired Ben Cherington to be their new general manager and president of baseball operations, following a disastrous September collapse with Theo Epstein in charge. After free agent signings that offseason like Kelly...

Giovani dos Santos throws out first pitch at Dodgers game, it wasn't good

Giovani dos Santos, the Los Angeles Galaxy's new signing, is very good at soccer and has caused quite a buzz since moving to MLS.  So naturally the Galaxy are milking every opportunity to showoff their new signing, which includes making public appearances and endearing himself to the Los Angeles' public.

Nationals @ Dodgers August 10, 2015: Welcome, Jose Peraza

Though none of the quarter of Mat Latos, Alex Wood, Luis Avilan, or — sigh — Jim Johnson have been particular standouts thus far, the deal that brought them to Los Angeles for Hector Olivera, Paco Rodriguez, and some minor leaguers you’ll never think about again was still seen as a win. You could argue that the Dodgers should have tried to get more talent than they did in another...

Phillies 6, Dodgers 2: Not the best way to start a road trip

There was ample opportunity to score tonight, but Jerome Williams wouldn’t let the Dodgers do so in their 6-2 against the Phillies. The Dodgers got seven hits and coaxed three walks out of Williams in his five innings of work, but they scored just one run. The problems began in the third inning, when Alex Wood and Jimmy Rollins had a single and ground-rule double to start the...

Pondering Another Big August Red Sox Trade

Three years ago, a struggling Red Sox team dumped a big part of their roster — and their payroll — on the Los Angeles Dodgers, shipping Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, and Josh Beckett to Los Angeles in exchange for a few prospects and a lot of financial relief. The deal freed up the team to reallocate a bunch of that money to free agents a few months later, and after hitting...

They say that all good things have to come to an end, but for fans of Zach Greinke and the Los Angeles Dodgers his scoreless innings streak came to an end way too soon--thanks to the opposing pitcher, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, nonetheless. Greinke hit Nieuwenhuis to start the inning. He then advanced to third thanks to a single and en error by Joc Pederson. With two outs Jacob deGrom...
