Reds @ Dodgers Aug. 15, 2015: Strong outing from Anderson would be nice

Despite Yasmani Grandal and Andre Ethier getting the night off, this is still a pretty solid lineup against the Reds.

Dodgers @ Pirates August 8, 2015: Scott Van Slyke, Cleanup Hitter

Every time I see Alex Guerrero try to play third base, or struggle to make contact, I always figure it’s the last time we’ll see him. But, I suppose Alberto Callaspo can’t play every single day, and Justin Turner is on the DL so… well, I really miss Juan Uribe, is all. Like, a lot. Dodgers Pirates 4:05 p.m. PT Pittsburgh, Pa.

An injury kept outfielder Scott Van Slyke out of the Los Angeles Dodgers' game against the New York Mets at Citi Field on Saturday, but the way he sustained the injury wasn't quite in the manner one would expect.

Podcast: ‘Dugout Blues’ episode 123 – Joc, injury updates, draft recap

On this episode of “Dugout Blues,” Jared Massey (Dodgers Nation) and I squeeze in the podcast recording just before the season finale(!) of Game of Thrones. #casualfans Joc Pederson is amazing, and he saved the Dodgers’ proverbial bacon on Sunday with a ridiculous catch. He’s already a 3-win player in his age-23 season, 62 games into said season. He good. The Dodgers had...

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...
