Dodgers who are en fuego

First the hitters.  Even though Keibert only has nine at-bats I wanted to include him because six for nine with only two strikeouts in his first taste of major league camp is outstanding. Estevez got no love from anybody when prospect lists were announced but he played a solid 2nd/SS and picked up four hits …

Rotation update

The Dodger rotation is the strength of the team and unlike many years it comes into spring with everyone healthy. Not only are the top five rotation options healthy but everyone except Julio Urias is also healthy. Which is a good thing because the team doesn’t go as deep this year as they have in …

Kershaw has been the rock we expected, never missing a start. Urias ended up being the only casualty in the …

Rich Hill puts another win on the Dodger wall

Rich Hill and Logan Forsythe were two of the last holdouts this year in the summer of the Blue, but both have joined the fray, and the team looks unstoppable. For the 3rd straight start, Rich Hill worked seven innings and now has twenty-seven strikeouts to only three walks over his last three starts. That …

This wasn’t how I drew up the Dodger season

Kind of expected the Dodgers to eventually be the best team in the West but I’ll be honest I kind of figured that meant: 1. Adrian Gonzalez was the 1st baseman 2. Andrew Toles was the LF 3. Chris Taylor was in AAA 4. Cody Bellinger was in AAA 5. Urias had settled in as …
