DAVID HUFF NEWS

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...

Coming soon: upgrades for Atlanta Braves’ bullpen

After spending the offseason trading away top tier talent and making it very obvious that this season was one for rebuilding, the Atlanta Braves find themselves within contention in NL East. They are in contention for two reasons: one, the Washington Nationals have had a somewhat lackluster start to the season, especially considering the expectations for them. And two, the Braves...

Dodgers rotation may be stabilizing

The ambiguity at the back end of the Dodgers’ rotation may soon be coming to an end. The Los Angeles Times quoted manager Don Mattingly on the chances of another start for Tuesday night starter Mike Bolsinger:“I would think so,” Mattingly said. “Mike threw the ball well. We still have a little bit of wiggle room, but we’re getting to the point where we have to settle in...

Dodgers @ Giants April 22, 2015: So Much Roster Churn

Usually, when the team makes a roster move to import a new player, there’s a post, especially when it’s a 40-man player. But as we’re quickly learning, there’s no usual when it comes to the roster manipulations of this front office. (Also we all have day jobs, so.) Dodgers Giants 7:15 p.m. San Francisco, Ca.

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...

Continued Success Starts with the Draft

As a low budget team, the Indians really need to bank on being able to raise their players through the farm system. This requires solid coaching, good leadership, and some talented players. This puts a lot of pressure on the front office to make sure that they are going into the draft fully prepared to select the best player they can that will impact them in the future. Unlike the...

Darkest before the dawn? In mere seconds yesterday, John Sterling bounced from inhuman despair to heavenly rapture

Contrary to news reports, the NY Yankees did not win yesterday: The Reds simply lost. In the ninth inning, the Evils were executing a classic choke moment - runner on a third, no outs, cleanup hitters up - and Mark Teixeira fanned. This prompted John Sterling to yelp, "Strike three, what else?"Yep, that's right. Two little words. Two sharpened knives. John couldn't hold back. What...
