Diamondbacks 4, Dodgers 2: A tale of two games, but still a loss

This game was pretty tame and boring until the ninth inning. The game was tied at one on the strength of solo home runs by Miguel Montero and Scott Van Slyke. After that, it was like an entirely different game. Chris Withrow did this: That would have been a hell of a way to lose a game. Luckily, Withrow was bailed out by everyone’s favorite Uribear. Love you, Juan Uribe. Unfortunately...

Ryu Shuts Down SF Offense In Giants’ 2-1 Loss

Joc Pederson Off To Just A Fantastic Start in Triple-A

Lost, maybe, in Matt Kemp‘s big game and the daily question of “how does Yasiel Puig‘s thumb feel / did he light a puppy on fire” is the fact that the “too many outfielders” problem that the Dodgers face isn’t because they have four outfielders. It’s because they have five, and I’m not talking about Scott Van Slyke. It’s because of Joc Pederson, and how is he...

Mailbag #3: Outfield scenarios, platoon splits, a future manager?

An off-day mailbag! Because we’ve (I’ve) been slacking on mailbags. Let’s get started with an optimistic question! ===== Michael: “Let us contemplate the worst, and perhaps that will keep it from ever happening (excuse the magical thinking, but we baseball fans do get superstitious).

Looking, statistically, at the Dodgers' potential outfield platoons

The first day Don Mattingly got the chance to deal with the four outfielder situation, a tough lefty was on the mound and he actually sat Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford. It was kind of obvious to sit one or the other so Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig could play. But going the extra step and playing Scott Van Slyke in left field was a surprising move.If you take a look at each player&...

Ryu gets the nod in game 2, along with Gordon and Baxter

Via The Dodgers are changing things up in the second game of the season in Australia, inserting two new players into the lineup and switching up the batting order. Scott Van Slyke is sitting for Mike Baxter and Justin Turner is being replaced by Dee Gordon, but perhaps the most interesting move is the decision to bat Gordon leadoff. The changes are understandable with a switch in...

Australian Opener Game one is in the books; Dodgers win 2-1

[Box Score] I woke up at 2:00 AM and barely hung on through the rain delay at Sydney Cricket Ground early this morning. I stayed up through the entire game – and although I’m exhausted this morning – damn it feels good to have baseball back. The Dodgers are 1-0, winning the opener on foreign soil 3-1. Scott Van Slyke was the offensive hero, but the real story was probably what...
