Walker set the proper pace for game one

Dave Roberts had a good game on Thursday Night, but his best call was the most important. Dave went with Walker Buehler to start game one, and Walker didn’t disappoint, hurling the Dodgers to a 6 – 0 victory. How good was Walker Buehler? Only eight pitchers have given up zero runs, one hit or …

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 …

Eight Dong Day

The Dodger Twitter-verse has decided that Dodger home runs are now Dodger Dongs and who am I to argue with that? To celebrate the Dodgers decided to go where no dong has ever gone by blasting eight dongs in one game. They hit him em to left field, they hit em to center-field, they hit …

2019 Preview of the Dodger Hitters

I’ll be referring many times to the Zips projections for this column. Catcher – Austin Barnes and Russell Martin. For the first time in a long time, the Dodgers lost a key position player to free agency when they let Yazmani Grandal walk to the Brewers. Austin Barnes had a horrible season in 2018 but …

The 2019 spring training games are over so for fun, let’s take a look at the spring training stats. Dodgers did just about zero running this spring.  No one stole more than one base and when you look at the lineup you don’t see anyone who should have a green light unless it is Pollock. …

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 …

Fab Five Dodgers

This is two days too late to properly asses how much Yasiel Puig was beloved by Dodger fans but it is something I wanted to do this week.  Back in February of 2010 Michael White wrote for TrueBlueLA and did a fab five edition in which each of the regulars or even the semi-regulars commentators …

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, …

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, …
