Houston Astros Quietly Grinding It Out

The first place and very talented Los Angeles Dodgers arrived at the Juice Box with the skilled arms of Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw prepared to punish my boys in orange. Me, I gotta say I was concerned. My mighty mighty Stros had just split a series with the lowly Rays and honestly didn’t even look half mighty doing it. Greinke and Kershaw are among the elite dealers in the...

Greinke, Dodgers finish sweep of Reds with 1-0 win

Dodgers 1, Reds 0: Zack Greinke, bullpen pitch a shutout

The Dodgers completed a much-needed 3-game sweep of the Reds on Thursday by defeating them 1-0 in Cincinnati. Zack Greinke was, as usual, great. He was in control of the game the entire day, even if he wasn’t as sharp as he has been at times this season. Still, he posted a fine line: 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 9 K, 109 pitches, 67 strikes, 5/3 GO/AO. The worst part of his game is the...

Phillies have finally escaped from payroll hell

By the time the 2015 season has concluded, the Philadelphia Phillies will have spent over $1.1 billion on their payroll from 2009 (the year after their 2008 World Championship) through 2015. The only teams to spend more over the same time period are the Yankees, Red Sox, and thanks to a surge over the last three seasons, the Dodgers. But those three teams, along with the Tigers...

Price: 'When you're not winning, you have to find victories in other ways'

The Los Angeles Dodgers struggled to provide much of any offensive support for Zack Greinke in his last outing. Considering how well they've hit the ball in Cincinnati the past two games, that might not be a problem this time. Greinke and the Dodgers will try to complete a three-game sweep of the lowly Reds on Thursday. Los Angeles (69-56) totaled nine runs and two homers while dropping...

Even with all 30 teams in action, it's a pretty lean day across this MLB slate. We've dug in deep to find the best pitching matchups for you. Check 'em out: James Shields (SDP) vs. Stephen Strasburg (WAS) 7:05 p.m. ET It's not a prototypical pitchers duel, but on a lean day like this you have to take what you can get.

Should batting receive consideration in Cy Young voting?

10 days ago, I was informed that I will be voting for the National League Cy Young Award this year. This will be my first time voting on the pitcher awards — last year, I was tasked with voting for Manager of the Year and MVP — and so I’ve spent the last week and a half trying to work through what kind of factors I’m going to want to consider in putting my ballot together...

Daily Pitcher Duels: Aug. 24

Today's limited slate—just 10 games—features one fantastic duel and a handful of aces going out on their own. Check 'em out: Corey Kluber (CLE) vs. Jon Lester (CHC) 2:05 p.m. ET Kluber really has been fantastic for almost the entire season, but last time out was just a flat-out dud. He allowed four home runs—the most he's ever allowed and just the second time in 96 career...

Dodgers @ Astros Aug. 23, 2015: As Clayton Kershaw starts, so does A.J. Ellis

This weekend has been pretty awful for the Dodgers. They were no-hit and Scott Kazmir outdueled Zack Greinke (the latter not nearly as bad as the former). But the Astros are also a good baseball team, so losing isn’t all that surprising. The same can’t be said about today, though. Dodgers Astros 11:10 a.m. Houston SS Rollins 2B...

How Greinke and Kershaw are polar opposites

Los Angeles Dodgers aces Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke have teamed up to produce one of the best starting pitching duos in recent history over the past few years. As similar as the two are in their work ethic, poise, and many other facets that make them elite pitchers, there is one area in which they couldn't be more dissimilar. In the year following Kershaw's MVP and Cy Young...

Clayton Kershaw chases Zack Greinke, nerd history

Chasing records is fun. Sometimes it’s meaningless and fun, like the famed Ryan Webb, Matt Albers games-finished-without-a-save streak. Some chases have limited meaning, but they’re fun, like Zack Greinke‘s pursuit of Orel Hershiser‘s consecutive scoreless innings streak. Other are meaningful, like the 2015 Cardinals pursuit of the best park-adjusted ERA since before...
