Giants 6, Dodgers 2: Frisco’d

The Giants have been playing poorly. The Dodgers have been red hot (seven wins in a row). Naturally, the Giants dominated the game Tuesday night as the Dodgers fell to them 6-2. Brett Anderson‘s first foray into the Dodgers-Giants rival was an unsuccessful one. It wasn’t all Anderson’s fault, as the Dodgers’ potent offense was stifled by some strong Giant pitching. However...

Dodgers @ Giants April 21, 2015: How To Use Depth

So one of the things I’ve been big on in the months ever since the new front office took over has been the small things, the little moves that aren’t flashy and won’t sell tickets, but improve depth or help in some tiny way for little cost, all things the previous regime didn’t do. Dodgers Giants 7:15 p.m. San Francisco, Ca. SS ...

Mariners @ Dodgers April 15, 2015: Civil Rights Game

After last night’s rotation detour, the Dodgers return to their regularly scheduled programming tonight. Brett Anderson will make his second healthy start in a row. It’s amazing/troubling to think that each Anderson start could realistically represent 10% of what the Dodgers can expect from him in a season. He looked okay last time out, though the peripherals didn’t live up...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, Apr 10

Yesterday’s lineup was pretty darn average, finishing 9,482-of-17,591 in the $3 Moonshot and barely inside the top 50% in most of the low-money double-ups. Stephen Strasburg was the wrong ace as Matt Harvey dominated a depleted Nationals lineup, and like Wednesday most batters did something but none did enough. In particular, the four Astros were mostly shut down by Trevor Bauer...

Mailbag #22: Fifth starter concerns, Guerrero, Ethier, forgotten prospects

We love the mailbag, mostly. Send us more questions using the form to the right, directly (thedodgersdigest@gmail.com) and/or on Twitter. ===== The Bearded One: I think there’s room for a lot of valid concern about the fifth spot in the rotation with Brett Anderson, Joe Wieland, and Mike Bolsinger not making the most reassuring group of fifth starters in the world. There’s also...

Don’t Judge The Health Of The Dodger Rotation On Disabled List Trips

What’s the biggest potential weakness of the 2015 Dodgers? Everyone who just said “right-handed power” can go sit in the corner. Stop. Just stop it. That’s not it. That doesn’t matter. It is, probably without a ton of controversy, starting rotation depth. We’ve been over this a bunch of times. All five members of the 2015 rotation — Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun...

Dodgers' Brett Anderson working on a comeback

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Dodgers pitcher Brett Anderson looks at Los Angeles ace Clayton Kershaw and thinks of what might have been. ''In a perfect scenario, I'd be like my guy over here,'' he said as he looked at Kershaw in a nearby dressing stall in the Dodgers' clubhouse. The scenario has been anything but perfect. Injuries have always seemed to prevent Anderson from reaching the...

The five best and worst signings of the offseason

Baseball’s long, dark winter is just about over, which means it’s time for writers to judge how each team did in the offseason with their signings, trades, and other transactions. It’s also time for everyone reading those articles to bookmark them and tell the writers how stupid they are when the season is over. It’s a cherished ritual of spring and fall. But even with...

A Note On Starting Pitcher Depth

The Dodgers will need starting pitchers beyond their current rotation of Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun-jin Ryu, Brandon McCarthy, and Brett Anderson. All teams need more than that (there’s no such thing as a number five starter, as Baseball Prospectus likes to say) and the Dodgers have more health questions than most. Anderson hasn’t thrown more than 50 innings since 2011...
