Greinke and Santiago start Freeway Series 2015

Clayton Kershaw was pulled from a start versus the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday night. The Los Angeles Dodgers were playing coy and not expanding on a “hip issue” which delayed Kershaw’s interleague start. Don Mattingly announced his co-ace would be ready for the first game of the Freeway Series 2015. Kershaw and Los Angeles Angels lefty Hector Santiago were slated, but the...

Series Preview: Angels vs. Dodgers vs. All the Aces

After opening the unofficial second half of the season with six straight wins, it was fair to assume the Angels had avoided their annual face plant immediately after the All-Star break. Ah, but how wrong we were. The Angels have now dropped six out of seven contests — four of those losses coming in games which they led at one point — to turn their once two-game division lead...

Jacob deGrom is dominating Citi Field

Gary Cohen mentioned in Sunday’s broadcast against the Dodgers that Jacob deGrom is sitting on an impressive 1.48 ERA at home in 2015. In 2014 it was just a touch above at 1.70, for a combined career average of 1.59. That is utter domination, folks. His combined 2.05 ERA for the season is now second-best only to the historic Zack Greinke, which as luck would have it, he faced on...

Mets 3, Dodgers 2: deGrom Astounds, Mattingly Confounds

This game began with headlines of scoreless streaks, an amazing pitcher’s duel between the league’s top two pitchers in ERA, and hair. However, that’s not how it ended, as the Dodgers fell to the Mets 3-2 in 10 innings. Before getting to the game’s endlessly frustrating ending, let’s start with Zack Greinke. He entered the game with a 43-2/3 inning scoreless streak, then...

The Dodgers Are Dominating In Pairs

When somebody hears the word "Dodgers," the first names that come to mind are Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke, for a number of valid reasons. It's not often that a team has both of the top pitchers over the last 30 games, with respective ERA's of 0.45 and 0.00; it's nearly impossible to pitch any better. While Kershaw and Greinke have been the most dominating pair (more on them...
