While You Were Drinking 2015 Game 43 (SD at LAD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. The Padres (20-23) scored fewer runs, 2-1, than the Los Angeles Dodgers (25-16) last night in the first of three games at Dodger Stadium. Andrew Cashner (1-7, 2.89) did not figure in the decision after only allowing one unearned run...

Joc Pederson follows in father's footsteps with Dodgers

Stu Pederson had four at-bats with the Dodgers in 1985. That was the extent of his major league career, while spending the rest of his 12 year pro baseball career in the minors. Thirty years later his son Joc Pederson is thriving with the Dodgers -- center field being his for the taking this spring.

Dodgers try lefty bats this time against Bumgarner to no avail

The Dodgers, like every other team in the league so far, have gone almost exclusively right-handed when facing left-handed pitcher Madison Bumgarner this year. Until Thursday, Bumgarner had only faced three left-handed position players. In his two prior starts against the Dodgers this season, opposing pitcher Clayton Kershaw was the only left-handed batter to face him. Perhaps because...

Taking Advantage of Every At Bat

View image | Fantasy Sports are so much fun because of the strategy that is involved. Do you go for the power hitter to dominate the HR & RBI categories, do you take the singles hitter who can steal 50 bases? Scoring systems are typically designed to create a level playing field, unless of course its a home run derby league or something like that. ...

Podcast: ‘Dugout Blues’ episode 119 – Youngsters struggle, De Leon, Holmes

On this episode of “Dugout Blues,” Jared Massey (Dodgers Nation) and I discuss the mediocre week that was for the Dodgers. Last episode, we were praising Joc Pederson and what he has done so far this season. This episode, we talk about his struggles. He’s still valuable, though. The bullpen had a rough week — Yimi Garcia in particular. He got hit around a bit, but that...

Dodgers’ reliance on home run for scoring evident early in the season

The Dodgers are leading the major leagues in home runs with 47. They’re on pace for 272 home runs. They cannot keep up this pace (right?), so the amount of runs their scoring from home runs is somewhat alarming. The team has 247 hits, 47 of which have gone over the fence. That’s the highest percentage of hits-to-home runs in baseball (19 percent). That number was at 9.1 percent...

Joc Pederson: Boom or Bust, but Mostly Boom
