Dodgers sent Jake Arrieta the 60-pound pitching rubber from no-hitter mound

So there's an answer to a trivia question -- a pitching rubber, at least one from Dodger Stadium, weighs approximately 60 pounds. Los Angeles swallowed its pride from getting no-hit by Cubs righty Jake Arrieta on Sunday and sent him the actual pitching rubber from the stadium. Check out the bad boy on a scale: The Dodgers also threw in some dirt from the mound as a souvenir but we...

Things Suddenly Look A Lot Better For The Dodgers

If you’re not afraid of the Giants, you should be. You don’t win three titles in five years by accident. However they do it — by digging up veterans like Marco Scutaro and Cody Ross who turn into postseason heroes or turning unheralded prospects like Joe Panik and Matt Duffy into solid contributors — they manage to make it work. Right now, they have one good starting...

Arrieta celebrates no-no at Wrigley with gifts from Cubs, Dodgers

Deep down the Los Angeles Dodgers might not believe they were no-hit Sunday by Chicago Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta, but they certainly aren't being sore losers about it. In fact, the organization is being rather gracious. Arrieta pitched his first career no-hitter Sunday night at Dodger Stadium -- a friendly E4 early in the game certainly helped the cause. The Cubs celebrated...

Giants @ Dodgers Sept. 1, 2015: Justin Ruggiano, In A Pennant Race

A few weeks or months back, I pointed out how I still couldn’t believe that Chin-hui Tsao was pitching for the Dodgers in 2015. He’d been with the Dodgers in 2007 and essentially out of baseball since. That he wasn’t really productive hardly seemed the point; that he was somehow back in the big leagues was the story. I couldn’t really imagine a more surprising turnaround...

What to do with Corey Seager this month

The first round of September call-ups will happen later today (officially). A player, rightly, not in the group is Corey Seager. Last week, I looked at Julio Urias (and others) as potential September call-ups. Now, I’m looking at the possibility of Seager being recalled. Seager, 21, is warming up in Triple-A at just the right time for the Oklahoma City Dodgers. In the month of...
