What are the Dodgers to do without Hyun-Jin Ryu?

The Dodgers were and still are clear favorites to win the NL West division. But the path to that destination just got a lot more difficult. Hyun-Jin Ryu just had shoulder surgery that will side-line him for the remainder of the season. The Dodgers still have a dominating top of the rotation with Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke but without hope for Ryu’s return, the drop-off from...

Forget About Cole Hamels

So Brandon McCarthy is out for the year and Hyun-jin Ryu is out for the year and Zack Greinke‘s velocity is down and oh my god they’re counting on Brett Anderson and Mike Bolsinger and Carlos Frias‘ total inability to throw off-speed pitches and PANIC! You know where this leads. It leads to an insistence that the Dodgers need a starting pitcher — which is true, or at least...

Rockies, De La Rosa end Dodger streaks

Jorge De La Rosa’s first quality start this year on Saturday in Los Angeles was good enough to break up a few streaks by the Dodgers and their starter Zack Greinke. De La Rosa’s 7 1-3 scoreless innings were enough to outduel Greinke, who lost for the first time in 15 starts dating back to August 2014. The 7-1 victory over the Dodgers also ensured at least a split of the 4-game...

Rockies 7, Dodgers 1: Mediocre Night

Even the best teams have forgettable nights. The Dodgers have been incredible this year, but stumbled to a 7-1 loss against the Rockies tonight.

Yasiel Puig vowed to cut down on his bat flips, but the same can’t be said for teammate Zack Greinke.

Zack Greinke is holding down the bat flipping duties with Yasiel Puig out

Yasiel Puig is not going to bat flip after every home run this year — or so he says. That makes me sad, because I like bat flips. Luckily for me, and really baseball fans everywhere, one Dodgers player has been keenly observing the ways master of the bat flip, and was ready to put all that he had learned at the knee of baseball’s undisputed bat flipping king.

WATCH: Zack Greinke does great bat flip after hitting double

Pitchers usually spend time complaining or being upset about bat flips, rather than actually performing the act themselves. But Zack Greinke bucked that trend during Tuesday’s game against the Brewers. Greinke teed off on a pitch and made sure everyone knew that he made solid contact by flipping his bat like a boss.

Dodgers face tough decisions to bolster rotation after Brandon McCarthy injury

The snarky response to the news that Brandon McCarthy would miss the rest of the 2015 season was that the Dodgers’ mega-payroll of $270 million can’t buy a fully healthy pitching staff. McCarthy’s torn ulnar collateral ligament was announced by the Dodgers on Monday. The right-hander, 31, will undergo Tommy John surgery and the recovery process is expected to keep him sidelined...
