Here we go again

The last time the Dodgers and Nationals met in the postseason was the classic 2016 NLDS when the Dodgers had to win games four and five or face elimination. They won both, but game five didn’t come easy and is probably one of the best NLDS games in Dodger history. In 2016 the Dodgers turned …

Dodger fans don’t dare leave early anymore

The improbable Max Muncy was the latest Dodger walk-off hero yesterday, blasting a two-run run double to plate Seager with the running run against one of the best closers in baseball. For Dodger fans, it never gets old even if they have already done it nine times this year. If you love baseball you had …

One hitter to late, one CF to short

Dustin May put up the worst debut game score (40) at Dodger Stadium by a LAD in history last night but it was hard to fault him for it. The Dodgers didn’t exactly back him with their A lineup with Negron playing his first game in CF at Dodger Stadium and Tyler White getting the …

Can Dustin May break any of these LAD debut Game scores?

The Dodgers best pitching prospect will make his debut tonight at Dodger Stadium against the San Diego Padres, so I thought it might be a good idea to look at the best scores for a rookie debut, for a rookie debut at Dodger Stadium, for a rookie debut against the Padres,  for a rookie debut …

Might be time for Keibert to learn how to talk like a Pirate

This is not a reactionary column to another poor outing by the Dodger bullpen, but it is about the season-long problems with the bullpen. The team is still on pace to win 105 games so at this point we only care about the wins in October. I’ve followed Keibert and watched him climb up the …

MLB LAD Pipeline top thirty breakdown

MLB pipeline released their top 30 Dodger prospects for 2019 a few days ago, and as we have done in the past we break it down. In 2018 Walker Buehler was head of the class and is now the hurler expected to lead the Dodger rotation into 2019. Alex Verdugo is now considered the top …

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 …

Every player is replaceable

Why is that a controversial comment? Bill James said out loud what every GM has ever thought for the history of baseball. Or maybe not everyone, but certainly quite a few. Players come, players go, the constant is the game, not the players. Agents don’t want to hear this, fans don’t want to hear this, …
