Saying good-bye to another old friend

I always expected Ryu to resign with the Dodgers so the news that Ryu signed with Toronto was a big surprise for me and it means that for the second year in a row one of my favorite Dodgers will not be wearing the Dodger blue as we head into the next season. I don’t …

36 years ago the Dodgers last played on Oct 24th

and it was one of the greatest World Series games in LAD history. The Yankees held a two games to one lead headed into the 4th game and they had knocked out the Dodger starter Bob Welch in the first inning. Welch only faced four batters giving up a triple, double, walk, and single before being …

Walker Buehler relief experiment

Watching Pedro Baez struggle last night, I was left wondering how the Walker Buehler experiment is doing. Walker Buehler is currently the Dodgers top pitching prospect and after a disastrous first start in AAA he settled down and looked more like the Dodgers top pitching prospect. A few weeks ago the Dodger front office moved …

Big and Little D dominate 1 – 0 loser list

I was right about Don Sutton leading the Dodgers in losing 1 – 0 games but he had company from his big brother Don Drysdale. They both did it a staggering nine times. This points to two things. They were both incredible pitchers, and they both pitched for some bad offensive teams. The list below …

Koufax perfect game rides on top

Most people have never heard any Fleetwood Mac prior to that duo but let me tell you, those prior iterations were great and possibly better than the …

Clem Labine wants to know what is the big deal?

as does Larry Sherry, Mike Marshall, Steve Howe, and even Bob Welch. A lot of attention has come to Kenley Jansen for getting seven outs, and I guess in today’s game he deserves it. From a historical perspective,  it wasn’t that special but we know better. It made me curious just how many Dodgers have done …

LAD All-Stars 1980 – 1989, the Fernando Valenzuela and Orel Hershiser decade

1980 – The decade started with a bang as the Dodgers hosted the 1980 All-Star game, and had six representatives, led by the historical infield with Garvey, Lopes, and Russell all making the team.  All four position players started but went a combined 0 – 7. Lopes only got one at-bat before being replaced.  This …
