Should We Be Frightened About Ned Colletti Trading For A Reliever?

This Dodger bullpen, it is, well, not good. Kenley Jansen isn’t the problem, of course, and neither is J.P. Howell. We’ve talked a few times about how Brandon League is at least adequate; Brian Wilson has been up and down, but obviously isn’t going anywhere with that 2015 player option. Chris Perez has been awful. Paul Maholm hasn’t been much better. Jamey Wright is striking...

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.

Brian Wilson look-alike fan goes a little overboard reacting to calls (Video)

Brian Wilson is one of the most unique-looking players in MLB, so it makes sense that he would have some fans trying to copy his look. In fact, one showed up to Nationals Park on Monday to cheer him on during the Dodgers’ 4-0 loss to the Nationals. The guy had the big black beard […]

Brian Wilson’s Doppelganger Spotted At Nationals Park

Your browser does not support iframes. A fan spotted behind home plate of Monday night’s LA Dodgers-Washington Nationals game looked eerily similar to the man pitching on the mound. As funny as Wilson’s doppelganger was, the Nationals announcer may have beat it out saying that the man “Buddy Wilson” was Brian’s brother. The post Brian Wilson’s Doppelganger Spotted At...

Brian Wilson’s Doppelgänger Was All Fired Up Behind Home Plate In Washington

To be fair, it’s not hard to be considered Brian Wilson’s “doppelganger.” All you need to do is shave your head, grow and gigantic black beard, throw on some Dodgers gear and…*poof*…you’re Brian’s brother, Buddy Wilson. Not only did Buddy have the look down, he also had pretty great seats and brought some serious energy. I mean, that guy was FIRED up. (GIF via...

Phillies 7, Dodgers 3: Wilson brought his gas can

“What’s wrong with Brian Wilson?” This was written by Ken Gurnick about Wilson after he blew the San Diego game on opening night. I criticized him for it, saying it was one game and he looked fine in Australia. Of course, he subsequently went on the disabled list, so something was kinda wrong with him. Now, Wilson has become unreliable after giving up two runs in the eighth...

Brian Wilson and Pitching Inside

On Saturday, Brian Wilson had a very frustrating outing. He faced five batters, walked one, struck out one, and allowed two hits. He allowed one run (and allowed an inherited runner to score), but Kenley Jansen was able to close out the game in the ninth and sealed the Dodger victory. It took Wilson 23 pitches to finish the inning, and just 11 of them were strikes. It seemed like...

Fear the Beard? Not so much. Brian Wilson showcased his dreadlocks/beard look during Sunday night’s MLB Opening Night game between the Dodgers and Padres.  Not only did the Dodgers’ 10M-a-year relief pitcher get off to a rocky start on the field (he recorded the loss after giving up three-runs without recording an out), but on top of that, his beard was not looking the sharpest...
