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 …

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 …

Walker / Kershaw / Baez / Jansen

The media and some fans seem to be focused on how Josh Hader is fresh and ready to vanquish the Dodgers all by himself, but I think they might be missing the bigger picture. The most that Josh Hader can pitch is three innings, and last I looked a major league game is nine innings …

Alex Wood about to pounce on the Vulture

In 1966 Phil Regan won fourteen games as a relief pitcher for the NL Champion Dodgers and earned the nickname “The Vulture” for pilfering wins from the starting pitchers.  He also only lost one game and has the greatest winning percentage of any Los Angeles Dodger with at least twelve wins. Eric Stephen explains how …

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 …

The Campaign Continues

Dodger fans at the game tonight were treated to Orel Hershiser and Justin Turner putting on the Ritz as they combined on the Nations birthday with a memorable moment. At the same time, Dodger fans listening to Joe Davis got a glimpse why he is filling the big shoes of Vin Scully very well. Orel took …

Don Sutton sits on top but this will be about Doug Rau

Don Sutton has the highest game score against the Washington National franchise at Dodger Stadium. It was a crazy game as Little D went eleven innings and they lost 3 – 5 even though he only gave up one earned run.  The Expos scored three runs in the top of the 14th to win the …

LAD Strikeout Leaderboard for AT&T Park

I think I’ll make this a regular thing. Before each series, I’ll post the top Game scores and Strikeouts for that park so we can see if anyone can crack them in the upcoming series. On Saturday, Alex Wood was able to crack the top strikeout games at Coors and jumped over Clayton Kershaw to …

Favorite LAD players by position?

Sometimes the comments at TBLA are stories within themselves. Yesterday they got off on the tangent of Best LAD lineup based on season and that transgressed into Favorite LAD Lineup based simply on players you saw and liked. I’m going to take a swing at the favorite player lineup. Some of these would be easy for …

Can Kershaw do his part?

By asking that question, what I mean is, can Clayton keep his team tied or better by the time he’s lifted by Dave Roberts? Max Scherzer will be a stern test, it could very well be much like Wednesday’s game when Thor/Bumgarner threw zeroes at each other. The difference in the game was that Thor …
