While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 125 (SD at LAD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending your evening at the pub.  Then you fall asleep right after the game ends.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. The Padres (59-65) defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers (71-57) by a score of 4-1 last night at Dodger Stadium.  Eric Stults (6-13, 4.53) continued his recent success,...

Padres 4, Dodgers 1: The Dog Days Of August

This game was pretty bad, and I’m annoyed at everyone that I actually stayed up to watch it. Roberto Hernandez pitched basically how you’d expect a fungible starter to pitch, which is to say, he lasted only five innings, allowing 10 baserunners and four runs (three earned). Here’s why that run was unearned, thanks to Scott Van Slyke, but mostly thanks to Brim for the GIF: ...

Phils Get Prospect, Williams Twirls Magic, Blanco Hits

Three Cuts: Braves fall short in series-deciding loss to Dodgers

ATLANTA -- Here are three things we learned from the Braves' 6-4 home loss to the Dodgers, a marathon-matinee defeat (nearly 3 hours, 40 minutes) that dropped Atlanta to just one game above .500. 1. There's a sense of deja vu from Aaron Harang's rough start Back on June 18, Harang took the Turner Field mound for a getaway-day matinee against Roberto Hernandez and the...

Dodgers 6, Braves 4: So Long, Atlanta, and Your Awful Tomahawk Chop

There was a moment in the top of the fourth where I really thought it was all going to come crashing down for Roberto Hernandez. He’d survived through the first three innings, though not always smoothly, and then he walked Freddie Freeman, and he walked Justin Upton, and, after getting Chris Johnson to fly out, he’d thrown a wild pitch to allow the runners to advance. He fell...

MLB Game Picks - Thursday: August 14, 2014

I really thought I was headed for a bad day of picking and the picks stood at 4-6. But then the picks went on a run and the last six were correct to finish at 10-6. I'll take it. The only extra-inning game went the wrong way of course. Any day you pick the Cubs and Padres and Twins to win and they all do, that is a pretty good day.There are ten games on today's schedule and...

Dodgers 6, Braves 2: Nice To Meet You, Kevin Correia

Three days after castoff Roberto Hernandez was really, really good, castoff Kevin Correia was… really, really good. This sport is so, so dumb sometimes. I love it. I hate it. Baseball! You really, truly could not have asked for more from Correia, who went six innings allowed only four hits, and actually struck out five. He threw strikes. He was efficient. He avoided any serious...

Los Angeles Dodgers acquire Kevin Correia

The Los Angeles Dodgers made another move in their rotation, acquiring Kevin Correia from the Minnesota Twins for either a player to be named later or cash. It’s against journalistic ethics, but I’m really tempted to just copy+paste my article from last week about the Dodgers acquiring Roberto Hernandez, and change some names and numbers. Many baseball minds think there is no...

Jerome Williams- Phillies Newest Starting Pitcher

With Roberto Hernandez dealt last week to the Dodgers, Cliff Lee and Jonathan Pettibone both out for the season on the disable list, and Sean O'Sullivan doing horribly in 2 starts, the Phillies went dumpster diving for a starting pitcher and caught some trash in the form of Jerome Williams.Jerome joins his 3rd team in 6 weeks.  He began the year with Houston, then pitched briefly...

Dodgers @ Brewers August 10, 2014: Hanley Out, Barney In

The last few days have been so much fun around Dodger-land — Roberto Hernandez! Kevin Correia, who might start tomorrow! – that it’s easy to forget that if they don’t win today’s series finale in Milwaukee, they’ll limp out of Wisconsin having been swept by a potential playoff opponent. (Colt Hynes, by the way, was DFA’d to make room for Correia on the 40-man roster...

Brewers 9, Dodgers 3: Roberto Hernandez Was Great But The Defense Wasn’t

The Dodgers traded for a starter to begin the game against the Brewers tonight. However, that trade ended up being of little consequence as they fell 9-3 in the late innings. With Josh Beckett going on the disabled list before tonight’s game, all eyes were on the new acquisition Roberto Hernandez. Things didn’t start very well, either, as the Brewers scored twice in the first...

Which One Of These Pitchers Could Be A Dodger Soon?
