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 …

2017 Transactional review part one

The 2017 Los Angeles Dodgers had their most successful regular season since 1974, and their most successful postseason since 1988. They came within one game of achieving the goal of every major league franchise, the World Series Championship. Slowly I’m going to review all the moves that got them there, with columns for the big …

Right Field was not up to snuff

Ever since Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp showed up to be the Dodgers right fielders in 2007 the position has been in good hands, and most times in great hands.  From Kemp to Andre to Puig from 2007 to 2015 the position was always one of strength. That was not the case in 2016. Puig …

Redemption game

Rich Hill showed why the Dodger front office traded for him, Cory Seager showed why he’s the best rookie in baseball, Yazmani Grandal showed why fans shouldn’t worry about a slump in the postseason, Joe Blanton showed why one pitch won’t define his 2016 season, Yasiel Puig showed why you shouldn’t count him out, and …

Boatload of outfield options awaits​ Roberts

With Andre Ethier joining the team this weekend and playing left field on Sunday, an already crowded outfield just got more crowded. The Dodgers now have seven legitimate outfield options, and lucky for Dave Roberts just about all have of them have severe platoon splits. Unfortunately for Dave Roberts based on the numbers he still …

Dodgers two-headed​ platoon in RF is tearing it up in September

Right field was a black hole for the Dodgers in August, with Josh Reddick having one of the worst months in LAD history this century for an outfielder, and Yasiel Puig doing his thing in AAA. The only saving grace for the month was the work of Toles who came up on August 21st.  September …

It took a month but the deadline deal for Hill/Reddick is starting to pay dividends

Rich Hill’s blister and Josh Reddick’s month long slump were the subjects of humor and laughter in August but as the calendar turns to September the Dodger front office may get the last laugh. Rich Hill did make one start in August, and it was a beauty, and he has followed that up with an …

Josh Reddick just isn’t measuring up

You’d be hard pressed to find a Dodger regular this century who has had a worse month than Josh Reddick has had in August. For a team used to the heroics of Justin Ruggiano, Juan Rivera, Marlon Anderson, and Belliard after being acquired for the stretch run, the failure of Reddick to launch has been …

Schebs and Kemp go boom boom & boom

I can’t help but LIMH when a player I like has a big day. Tonight Scott Schebler and Matt Kemp made me smile as the two ex-Dodger right fielders wrecked havoc upon their competition. Matt Kemp helped the Dodgers by blasting a three run run home run to lead the Braves to a 3 – …

Schebler & Peraza torment team that traded them to no avail

They both have hit a home run, and they both have hit a double so far this series. In total, they had 14 hits,  while driving in six runs, and scoring six times. It did seem that Peraza was on base every time in the three games he played. Yet the Dodgers still won the …
