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...

Cardinals 4, Dodgers 2: That’s A Series Loss

So… oh. Well, Zack Greinke was really good, because Greinke is always good. (And also because the plate umpire had a pretty wide zone, though that was pretty consistent for both teams.) He even got two hits! The Dodgers only scored two runs for him, but since he’d allowed just one back, a solo homer to Jhonny Peralta, it seemed like it’d be enough. For a while. And then everything...

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...

How Dodgers’ hitters and pitchers fared ‘After 0-2′

I was listening to a recent episode of Effectively Wild, (Baseball Prospectus podcast), and one topic being discussed was the “After 0-2″ split. Sam Miller brought it up and focused on the pitchers, but I’m even more fascinated how the Dodgers’ hitters fared after they got down 0-2. Let’s be clear: These stat lines aren’t going to be pretty.

Joel Peralta’s sore shoulder could open Dodgers’ closer spot for others

Shoulder injuries for pitchers are about the worst possible scenario. Shoulder injuries for 39-year-old pitchers are just downright terrifying. From Ken Gurnick: “Dodgers reliever Joel Peralta, sidelined by shoulder stiffness, said he is hopeful he will be able to throw off a mound by next week. That will put Peralta nearly two weeks behind the rest of the team’s pitchers and...

MLB News: Dodgers lose their closer for 8-12 weeks

The Los Angeles Dodgers have temporarily lost their closer Kenley Jansen, due to a surgery on his left foot, putting him on the shelf for eight to 12 weeks, reports Ken Gurnick of MLB.com. Jansen could be out until mid-May, based on the 8-12 weeks estimate, meaning he’d miss one-quarter of the season. He will be on crutches for 10 days and in a boot for three to four weeks...

The Night That Blew Up Baseball

I’m shocked. I’m floored, really, at what’s happened in the last 12 hours. I’m sad that Dee Gordon is gone, because he was immensely fun to watch and probably the nicest ballplayer I have ever spoken to, and thrilled in the manner in which he left. I feel for Dan Haren, another good guy who seemed so happy to be able to pitch back at home, and pleased that he’s no longer...

The Juan Nicasio Relief Experiment, Already In Progress

When the Dodgers claimed Juan Nicasio off waivers last month, it was assumed that he was acquired mostly to pitch in relief. Ignoring the fact that the depth chart would currently have him start, it’s not necessarily a bad idea. Nicasio struggled significantly as a starter for Colorado in the first half of last season. He relies heavily on two pitches, so sustained success as...
