Dodgers @ D’Backs July 1, 2015: Finish That Road Trip

You hate this lineup. I know you do. Yasmani Grandal, Joc Pederson, and Adrian Gonzalez are out. A.J. Ellis, Enrique Hernandez, and Scott Van Slyke are in. (Not that you should be upset about Van Slyke, who is solid. Sure doesn’t seem as exciting to see Alex Guerrero in, though, does it?) Dodgers D’Backs 6:40 p.m. Phoenix, Az. CF Hernandez...

Dodgers 4, Cubs 0: House money lineup cashes in

Sorry about the headline. NotSorry about the Dodgers’ performance today, as they salvaged a split with the Cubs by getting two runs in the first inning and two in the second. That would be all Carlos Frias and the bullpen would need. Frias, somehow, threw five shutout innings, seeing as he gave up seven hits and walked three in those innings. He did strike out five Cubbies in...

Los Angeles Dodgers sit in first place in the National League West as injuries begin to creep up

The Los Angeles Dodgers currently own the top spot in the National League West with a record of 30-20, though the San Francisco Giants remain hot on their tail with a record of 30-23, just 1.5 games back. If L.A. wants to stay out front they might need to make a move or two before the trade deadline in order to solidify their rotation, especially since starter Hyun-Jin Ryu is now...

Dodgers 5, Marlins 3: It’s Scott Van Slyke’s World

Zack Greinke pitched a gem through six innings, but he ran into trouble in the seventh. Marcell Ozuna tied it up out of nowhere with a bomb of a homer to left, which is what hitters like him do. Then two consecutive singles and a walk setup a bases loaded situation and Scott Van Slyke heroics. It was a really really really close play, but it seemed like he was out by literally...

Dodgers 1, D’Backs 0: Sweep, Eventually

You had to have known that right after I wrote about how great the Dodger offense had been that they’d go and get shut down, right? I mean, of course. But perhaps lost in that discussion of how great the offense has been was a reminder of how good the bullpen has been. After Brett Anderson went six shutout innings, seven different relievers — everyone but Chris Hatcher —...

Scott Van Slyke could benefit from Carl Crawford injury

Yesterday, I wrote about Brandon McCarthy‘s injury being an opportunity for Zach Lee. Now, Carl Crawford‘s injury is an opportunity for someone — but not a prospect. Scott Van Slyke might get his chance to show what he can do. Some folks draw the (probably lazy) comparison of Van Slyke to former Dodger and fellow bearded lumberjack in the offseason (probably) Jayson Werth...

Joe Kelly – Big Win

Red Sox hurler Joe Kelly has a reputation as a bit of a flake. Before Game 6 of the 2013 NLCS, he engaged in a “staredown” of Dodger outfielder Scott Van Slyke, with neither man moving for 15 minutes as the ground crew prepared the field. He also wears glasses to better see his catcher’s signs, but removes them when he hits. But early in this Sox season, he was all business...
