Dodgers 6, Padres 3: 92 Wins and a Division Title

Well, make that 91 wins for Don Mattingly and one for Jimmy Rollins, I guess. Obviously, no one’s going to focus on the outcome of this game all that much. Clayton Kershaw went 3.2 innings in his final tune-up and got his seven whiffs for 301 strikeouts, putting him atop the MLB strikeout leaderboard for the first time in his career.

Could defensive concerns keep Corey Seager off the field in postseason?

Corey Seager has been a revelation for the Los Angeles Dodgers since debuting September 3. Because of a wrinkle in the rulebook, Seager, who was not called up before the August 31 deadline, is still eligible for the Dodgers’ postseason roster. Since debuting, all the 21-year-old shortstop has done is hit. In 20 games with the Dodgers, Seager has posted a .347/.447/.611 line with...

Should the Dodgers Leave Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins off the Postseason Roster?

Following the trade of Dee Gordon and the departure of Hanley Ramirez via free agency, the Dodgers were in need of a brand new combination up the middle. To fill these holes, the Dodgers traded for both Howie Kendrick and Jimmy Rollins in order to create a veteran presence. While Kendrick was solid prior to his recent injury problems over the last month, Rollins has consistently...

At Least Jimmy Rollins Is Making the Corey Seager Decision Easier

Earlier this month, there was a brief stir when Don Mattingly indicated that despite the immediate impact of Corey Seager, Jimmy Rollins would remain the starting shortstop: “At this moment, we don’t have any plans. When Jimmy gets back, we plan on playing Jimmy,” Mattingly said. That kicked off all the predictable “Mattingly is an idiot” complaints from the lesser corners...

Why Corey Seager is the key to the Los Angeles Dodgers World Series Dreams

Corey Seager has been on quite the roll since his major league debut. In 12 games this season he’s had 1 homerun and an OPS of 1.156. To be succinct, Seager has been quite the valuable asset for the Los Angeles Dodgers after having lost Jimmy Rollins to injury for the time being. Yet as Rollins prepares to return it is almost a bad idea to return Seager to the bench. The rookie...
