2019 MLB Awards?

MLB just put out what they considered the player from each that was most likely to win a 2019 Award. You know, the Cy Young Award, the MVP, and the Rookie of the Year. I’m sure for the last eight years they have picked a pitcher off of the Dodgers to win the Cy Young …

Surprisingly, Harper is still on Dodger radar

On the surface, a match of the Dodgers and Harper does not seem like something you’d expect from a team who has more outfielders than they have spots on the roster. You could make a case the Puig/Bellinger/Taylor/Joc/Kemp/Verdugo/Toles/Hernandez are all at least average, running from average (Toles, Kemp, Hernandez), to above average (Joc, Puig, Taylor, …

Kluber and Kershaw?

Many folks who work the trade routes have said the Dodgers and Indians are talking trade with perennial CYA candidate Corey Kluber the Dodger target. Given the depth of the Dodger rotation that seems like a strange pairing for me. The rotation seems a bit loaded with Buehler, Kershaw, Ryu, Hill, Wood, Urias, Stripling, and …

Dodgers start and end successful roadtrip with bullpen games

By any measure, the recent Dodger road trip through the Rocky Mountains and Pittsburgh was a resounding success but it wasn’t easy and Dennis Santana was as involved as anyone could be who only got fourteen outs in those six games. On the first game of the road trip, the Dodgers decided to use Dennis …

Can Dodgers continue to ride the Oklahoma pitching train?

Only one Dodger is still standing at the moment from the opening day rotation, thus the Dodgers have repeatedly dipped into their AAA affiliate at Oklahoma to replenish the battered rotation. Caleb Ferguson will be following in the footsteps of Walker Buehler, Brock Stewart, and Dennis Santana. Walker Buehler, for now, looks like a permanent …

LAD debut starts in the 21st century

Dennis Santana didn’t get to make this list due to the Dodgers sleight of hand regarding who started and who relieved last week,  but from what I gather, Caleb Ferguson will actually start the game tonight so I thought we could look at all the debut starts for the Dodgers. I limited this to the …

Dennis Santana about to go where no Dodger has ever gone before.

The pressure over making your first major league start must be heady stuff, but imagine making your first major league start at Coors Field? That is what Dennis Santana is going to do tonight and no Dodger has ever done this. Below are the Dodger who have made starts at Coors within their first five …
