Let’s Get To Know Joe Wieland

Just as we’ve done previously with Chris Hatcher, Yasmani Grandal, and Enrique Hernandez, we’ll continue walking through the new Dodgers with righty pitcher Joe Wieland, 25 in January, and a 4th-round pick of the Rangers out of a Reno high school in 2008. Wieland pitched in the Texas system through 2011, when he was sent to San Diego along with Robbie Erlin for veteran reliever...

2014 Player Reviews: Roberto Hernandez

Photo: AP There are moments in life where you don’t forget where you were when you heard breaking news. Last year, I went down to the Winter Meetings in Orlando, FL, a half business, half vacation trip with my wife. We visited my brother and his wife, hung out at the meetings for a bit, did some reporting, and went to the Magic Kingdom. I remember very vividly receiving a text...

Dodgers 7, Rockies 4: Six Run Sixth Propels Dodgers to Victory

Tonight’s game didn’t actually matter. The only thing that was actually at stake was pride, and the Dodgers did their best to boost their pride, winning by a score of 7-4. The meaningless nature of today’s game took the edge off of another tedious start by Roberto Hernandez. He was a little bit better than he has been as a Dodger, but only slightly. He allowed three runs...

Rockies-Dodgers Preview

The Los Angeles Dodgers wrapped up their division with another impressive offensive showing.

Cubs 8, Dodgers 7: Adrian Gonzalez Brings The Rain, Bullpen Brings The Pain

Roberto Hernandez wasn’t particularly sharp today, which is becoming a usual trend. The Dodger offense was certainly active and gave the team a big lead, but depending on the bullpen this much was going to backfire at some point, and the Dodgers ultimately fell 8-7. Hernandez only lasted four plus innings, allowing two runs while striking out four and walking two. He has not...

Dodgers 8, Cubs 4: Greinke Labors, Cubs Bullpen Labors More

The Dodgers won tonight, but the path was certainly rocky. Before tonight’s game, Mike posted a thread called “Finally a real pitcher.” After Carlos Frias turned in one of the worst starts in major league history, and not great starts by Roberto Hernandez and Dan Haren before that, the promise of a Zack Greinke start felt like an oasis in a desert of mediocrity. Unfortunately...

Dodgers 11, Rockies 3: Thank goodness for that 8-run inning

That could have been a lot more stressful/worse/terrible. Instead, it was a relatively easy 11-3 Dodger victory on Monday night in Colorado. With Roberto Hernandez starting, the chances he wouldn’t last long were high — and that’s what happened. But, he limited the damage: 3 2/3 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 HR. Paco Rodriguez relieved him and was able to escape a bases...

On Why The Dodgers Have To Deal With Hanley Ramirez’ Awful Defense

Hanley Ramirez, as you hardly need to be told, is terrible at playing defense. Ha ha! Here he is being terrible at defense, just last night: GIF Link Not that Roberto Hernandez was going to be good, of course, but that easy ground ball with two outs that didn’t turn into a third out opened up the door to three San Diego runs in that inning alone, including another Ramirez error...

While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 144 (SD at LAD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. The Padres (67-77) defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers (82-63) by a score of 6-3 last night in Dodger Stadium.  Andrew Cashner (3-7, 2.40) helped his own cause at the plate as well as throwing seven innings and giving...

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...

Padres @ Dodgers Sept. 9, 2014: So Many Relievers To Choose From

I really don’t have anything interesting to say about tonight’s game. Roberto Hernandez is less interesting than Clayton Kershaw. Andrew Cashner is definitely better than Odrisamer Despaigne, but not as interesting. Even Don Mattingly‘s lineup isn’t all that interested, since it’s the same as last night other than swapping Juan Uribe and Yasiel Puig. Padres ...

Nationals 6, Dodgers 4: Too Many Homers

You knew, you just knew, that one of these days Roberto Hernandez was going to implode. He’d been reasonably effective in his first four starts as a Dodger, yet he’s rarely been a pitcher who’s ever had any sort of consistency to his name, especially when it comes to his name. Tonight, against a very good Washington lineup, in Dodger Stadium weather that made the park look...
