Dodgers overcome their Yasiel Puig problem as postseason approaches

For the past six weeks, it looked like the Dodgers would win the NL West and perhaps the league’s top seed despite getting little contribution from Yasiel Puig. In August, the Cuban sensation compiled a slash average of .216/.296/.247. As that slugging percentage indicates, Puig wasn’t hitting for any extra-base power, managing only two doubles and no home runs in 108 plate appearances...

Why Is There Even a Pitcher-for-MVP Debate?

This is about Clayton Kershaw, but this isn’t about Clayton Kershaw. This is about all great pitchers and the Most Valuable Player award. We know that, in the voting, pitchers face a severe penalty. That’s the long-established track record of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, and it’s not about to dramatically change. There are […]

Rockies 10, Dodgers 4: Coors Field, Still The Worst

This is definitely the kind of thing that’s going to come back to bite me when the Dodgers sleepwalk through the rest of this week against the Rockies and Cubs and find themselves not only not in a position to clinch the division against the Giants next week, but needing some big wins to stay in first place: What. Ever. That’s really how I felt about this game, which was a generally...

Dodgers Recall Daniel Coulombe, Who Is A Living Human Being

Buried at the bottom of a J.P.Hoornstra piece on Joc Pederson the other day was this note: Mattingly said that he and the front office have discussed adding one more player already in the organization to the active roster over the final two weeks. Since the Dodgers already had 36 active players, and Stephen Fife, Jarret Martin and Matt Magill were all unlikely for various reasons...

Paco Rodriguez and Carlos Frias should make postseason roster

Slow day here at Dodgers Digest. While I think Mike (or one of us) will make a postseason roster prediction, I’m going to throw you a couple names that should be included in the roster. Paco Rodriguez and Carlos Frias. Rodriguez has proven his worth, despite a late-season collapse in 2013. He hasn’t pitched much in the majors this season due to injury and general dumbness, but...

Dodgers 11, Rockies 3: Thank goodness for that 8-run inning

That could have been a lot more stressful/worse/terrible. Instead, it was a relatively easy 11-3 Dodger victory on Monday night in Colorado. With Roberto Hernandez starting, the chances he wouldn’t last long were high — and that’s what happened. But, he limited the damage: 3 2/3 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 HR. Paco Rodriguez relieved him and was able to escape a bases...
