Stars are Aligning in Los Angeles After Dodgers’ “Biggest Win of the Season”

Teammates mob Adrian Gonzalez after his walk-off single in the 14th inning gave the Dodgers a 4.5 game lead over the Giants (Mandatory Credit: Richard Mackson – USA Today Sports) Now that October finally qualifies as next month, a ‘playoff mindset’ appears to be taking precedence around the Los Angeles Dodgers’ clubhouse. Last night’s 5-4 walk-off win against the San...

If You Squint Hard Enough, Chris Hatcher Looks Better

I’m not sure there’s really enough here to devote a full post to; in fact, I’m certain there’s not. However, the only thing I’m more sure of than that is that no one wants to stare at a recap of the Dodgers being no-hit all day long. So, let’s not do that. Let’s do this instead: After two rough months to start his Dodger career and two more sidelined due to injury,...

SoCon Preview: Hatch Attack is back, hopes to challenge Chattanooga

(STATS) - The Hatch Attack is back in the Southern Conference. That doesn't only mean a fast-paced offense at Samford, it also means a passionate approach under new head coach Chris Hatcher. "I want us to play hard, that's the No. 1 thing I preach to our guys," Hatcher said. "I want them to love playing the game and to play with a lot of emotion. That is the No. 1 thing that is going...

This Dodger Team Is Pretty Good

It hasn’t all been easy for the 2015 Dodgers. They got a combined 23 innings from Brandon McCarthy and Hyun-Jin Ryu. Jimmy Rollins has been a mess. Chris Hatcher was awful before he was injured. Carl Crawford has missed most of the year. Yasiel Puig missed a month. Scott Baker, Juan Nicasio, David Huff, and Yimi Garcia all started games. The offense spent a month not scoring. Juan...

Should the Los Angeles Dodgers have traded Dee Gordon?

Last winter the Los Angeles Dodgers sent Dee Gordon and pitcher Dan Haren to the Miami Marlins in exchange for Enrique Hernandez, pitcher Chris Hatcher, and a few minor league prospects. One of the minor league prospects, pitcher Andrew Heaney was traded to the Los Angeles Angels for Gordon’s replacement at second base, Howie Kendrick. Although Gordon’s numbers dropped off at...

Dodgers' OF Van Slyke, RHP Hatcher, switch places on DL

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Dodgers have reinstated outfielder Scott Van Slyke from the 15-day disabled list and placed reliever Chris Hatcher on the 15-day DL, retroactive to June 15, because of an oblique strain on his left side. The moves were made before Wednesday night's game against the Texas Rangers. Van Slyke missed 17 games because of inflammation in his back, and...

Chris Hatcher’s Different Kind of Bad

So Chris Hatcher has been bad and not good. For most of the season, our response has been “but BABIP!” and “yo, sample sizes” and “lol ERA” and “hella FIP” and so on. Quite reasonably, I might add. It’s a lot of what we said about Kenley Jansen last year, when people were freaking out about him early on, and he turned out to be just fine. Even last night, I saw...

Rockies 6, Dodgers 3: Predictable loss is predictable

When Don Mattingly throws out the “all right-handed lineup” against left-handed pitchers, I’m not usually opposed to it. The Dodgers have some quality bench players — most of whom would start on the majority of MLB teams. But this whole “bullpen game” thing was doomed from the start. The Dodgers fell 6-3 to the Rockies in Game 1 of a doubleheader in a lackluster performance...

Baseball's Best Leadoff Hitters

View image | gettyimages.com Having a reliable leadoff hitter is important once a game. But these guys also get the most opportunities at the plate so you better make sure that guy can hit in any situation as well as being a spark plug in the 1st inning. Every team has a different approach with their leadoff hitter, some managers just slot their fastest player at the top of...

Chris Hatcher’s release point cause of perceived struggles

People have said Chris Hatcher is bad because of his 6.91 ERA. People have said Chris Hatcher is good because of his 2.21 FIP. Guess what: You’re both right. Hatcher has been one of the more polarizing players on the 2015 Dodgers’ roster, and he really isn’t as bad as his ERA makes him out to be, but he hasn’t been as good as his FIP would lead you to believe. According to...

Dodgers finally score, beat Padres on Pederson's HR in 8th

  Joc Pederson homered in the eighth inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers' anemic offense mustered just enough to beat the San Diego Padres 2-1 on Friday night.

Giants 4, Dodgers 0: Baseball is pain

When I wrote the game thread yesterday, I might have been a bit presumptuous in asking for a win in San Francisco. When Mike wrote today’s thread, I thought he was well within reason to ask for a run. Alas, that seemed too big a task for baseball’s best offense, or something. Here we are the end of this 3-game series in San Francisco, and the Dodgers didn’t score a run. Zero...

The Los Angeles Dodgers new strength…the bullpen?

During the offseason, I kept trying to show how improved the Los Angeles Dodgers bullpen would be. My main points involved Chris Hatcher, Joel Peralta, J.P. Howell and the departure of Brian Wilson and Chris Perez. While Wilson’s and Perez’s absences from the bullpen have undoubtably helped, the three relievers I was most excited about have been a disappointment. Yet, with all...

Giants 3, Dodgers 2: Swept, I Guess

Is it weird to say that the Dodgers got swept by their biggest historic rivals and that it doesn’t bother me that much? It feels weird, but it’s true, I think. I mean, fill-in starter Mike Bolsinger was outstanding, allowing only one run over 5.2 innings in his Dodgers debut. Alex Guerrero had two more hits, including another homer, in what’s sure to incite another round of...

It’s been a week of the new and… well, new Dodger bullpen, and so far, the returns haven’t been generating a ton of confidence. The second game of the season featured Chris Hatcher starting an inning that resulted in three runs. Yesterday featured Chris Hatcher entering an inning that resulted in four runs. Pretty much every second in between has been filled by people screaming...
