Dodgers Commit Three Errors In One Play, Clayton Kershaw Is Not Impressed

Ellis and Hanley Ramirez were responsible for the errors with three consecutive bad throws. Clayton Kershaw was not impressed by his team’s defensive efforts. [MLB] The post Dodgers Commit Three Errors In One Play, Clayton Kershaw Is Not Impressed appeared first on Diehardsport.

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...

Dodgers Defense Suddenly Regresses To Tee-Ball Level

You can’t watch this clip just once. Nearly half the Dodgers defense share in some part of the blame on this play that saw two runs score on a fly-out to center with runners on first and second.  Along the way, 3 throwing errors from three different players. For a second, I thought Puig was responsible for two of them which would be something I imagine almost never happens for...

D’Backs @ Dodgers Sept. 5, 2014: Take A Seat, Dee Gordon

Let’s get it out there and move on: Don Mattingly stands by his decision to not pinch-run for A.J. Ellis at second base in Wednesday’s extra inning game, mostly because he didn’t want to be left without a backup catcher. (If something had happened to Drew Butera, it sounds like the domino effect would have had Justin Turner at catcher, Matt Kemp at second, and Clayton Kershaw...

Dodger Catchers Continuing To Struggle

As we all focused, and continue to focus, on the need for help in the rotation and bullpen, something that kept quietly coming up was the Dodger catching situation, which has been something of an issue all season long. Way back in April, I wrote a post about how atrocious the Dodgers catchers had been, pointing out that Tim Federowicz and Drew Butera weren’t doing much while trying...

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 dive back into the fray against the Dodgers

A pair of shutouts before the All-Star break gave the Los Angeles Dodgers a slim lead in the NL West. The St. Louis Cardinals are looking to take control of the NL Central and will attempt to avoid another blanking against the Dodgers in Friday night's series opener in St. Louis. Los Angeles (54-43) ended the first half with two 1-0 wins over San Diego and moved one game in front...

Dodgers 1, Padres 0: A.J. Ellis, Walkoff Hero

I don’t want to take anything away from Paul Maholm, who was obviously incredible tonight. After two months in the bullpen, he was asked to make a spot start with Josh Beckett on the disabled list, and Maholm was… well, I’m not even sure how to say it. This is a guy who had been one of the worst starting pitchers in baseball when he was in the rotation earlier, a guy who none...

Watch: Dodgers’ A.J. Ellis Saves ‘First Kick’

Outside of Brian Wilson looking creepy, as always, this following Vine by the Los Angeles Dodgers is actually pretty awesome. Who are we kidding? Wilson is pretty awesome himself.  World Cup fever is still strong in the United States, even after the USMNT was eliminated from competition. Could this become a new thing? Let’s hope not.

Streak over, Kershaw pitches Dodgers past Pads 2-1

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Clayton Kershaw and batterymate A.J. Ellis were in agreement for nine innings, especially on one specific point: Losing the game would be much worse than seeing the Los Angeles Dodgers' ace lose his scoreless innings streak. Chase Headley snapped Kershaw's streak at 41 innings with a tying homer in the sixth, but the two-time Cy Young Award winner finished...

Maybe The Dodgers Should Try To Add Some Catching Depth

Yesterday, the Red Sox designated catcher A.J. Pierzynski for assignment, and it caught my interest. It shouldn’t have — Pierzynski is 37 and hitting .254/.286/.348 for a last-place club — but it did. It got me thinking that A.J. Ellis is 33, has had two disabling lower-body injuries this year (knee surgery, ankle sprain), and that neither Drew Butera nor Tim Federowicz are...

The Chemistry Of the Dodgers Catching The Giants

Just over two weeks ago, I wrote about “the right and wrong ways to criticize the 2014 Dodgers,” saying that while the Dodgers certainly had their faults, it was ridiculous to compare their record to that of the Giants — on pace, at the time, for 105 wins — and even sillier to insinuate that the reason that the Giants were doing so much better was because of “chemistry...

Dodgers 5, Royals 4: Game-Winning Hit By Pitch

I wouldn’t normally put an image of A.J. Ellis getting plunked as the lead image here — sorry, A.J.! — but then, it’s not normal that the winning run scores on a bases-loaded hit by pitch. So yeah, take that, Wade Davis, and your otherwise spotless season. So, listen, I’m going to be straight with you. You don’t come here to read a paint-by-numbers game recap. You can...

It seems like the last few game threads I’ve written have involved certain players coming back from injury or a day off, and today is no different. The Dodgers activated A.J.
