Padres 6, Dodgers 3: Fauxto’d

Well, I guess this is what I get for getting so many Clayton Kershaw recaps. Roberto Hernandez did his best Fausto Carmona impression at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night, as the Padres took down the Dodgers 6-3. Carmona Hernandez didn’t get any help from his defense. After allowing two runners to reach with two outs in the second inning, Andrew Cashner (the pitcher) hit a line-drive...

Dodgers need to place more value on low-level prospects

It sucks that the team with the highest payroll in the history of American sports is in this position, but here we are. The Dodgers actually have replacement-level pitchers in their rotation. That’s fine; injuries happen. But General Manager Ned Colletti continues to confound by overpaying for mediocre talent. The Dodgers sent 19-year-old right-handed pitching prospect Victor Arano...

8 Guys You Had No Clue Are Still on MLB Rosters

The baseball season is long, as are the 15 and 60-day disabled lists, as are the massive transaction lists for all 30 clubs, especially during the middle of a divisional race when every available arm or bat is crucial. The average baseball fan can hardly remember their team’s starting nine and pitching rotation from this year’s opening day, let alone if a 10-year veteran outfielder...

Roberto Hernandez To the Dodgers

When it was announced that the Philadelphia Phillies had put pitcher, Cole Hamels on waivers, many around the baseball community immediately went on “Hamels-Watch”. Well, on Thursday, the Phillies finally traded a pitcher. Well, it wasn’t exactly the one everyone thought (Hamels), nor was it disgruntled closer, Jonathan Papelbon. It was… ROBERTO HERNANDEZ!

Dodgers Acquire Roberto Hernandez, Because Desperation

Today, the Dodgers acquired right-handed pitcher Roberto Hernandez from the Phillies because, I don’t know, reasons, I guess. (This is not the Dodger reliever of that name who I think I once drunkenly accused of lighting puppies on fire during an extra-inning live blog back in 2007; this is the artist formerly known as Fausto Carmona.) Hernandez, if that is his real name — oh...

Three of the standouts in the Phillies’ win over the Washington Nationals Friday night would not have been Phillies if things had gone differently earlier in the week. Any team in baseball could have Roberto Hernandez, Jonathan Papelbon and Marlon Byrd. Of course, by now you know that GM Ruben Amaro Jr. didn’t believe he was offered enough in return for his available players...

Byrd’s Homer Lifts Phils Over Nats

With the game tied 1-1 in the sixth inning, Marlon Byrd launched a solo home run–his 21st on the year–to right field, which ended up being the eventual game winner. Phillies starter Robert Hernandez tossed eight strong innings, allowing just one run (unearned), and five hits. Jonathan Papelbon saved his 26th game of the year. The win guarantees at least a split in this four game...

Roberto Hernandez Squares Off Against Vidal Nuno; Fans of Offense Rejoice

The 2014 season could be easily labeled a "disappointment" by most fans of the Phillies. Even with that phrasing, the team hasn't necessarily had a disappointing loss the last couple of weeks. Last night's contest filled that void. After jumping out to an early 6-2 lead behind Cliff Lee, the...

Hernandez helps Phils beat Brewers again

There was thought, Ryne Sandberg said, to granting Roberto Hernandez a shot at his first complete game in almost a year. The sinkerballer limited Milwaukee to one run in eight innings Wednesday on 84 pitches. He attacked an aggressive lineup that has occupied first place for 92 straight days only to stumble this week. But the Phillies manager wanted his $50 million closer, Jonathan...
