The LA Times ran a great story on Kiké and his family as they prepared to ride in the Rose Parade sitting on the City of Hope float. The Dodgers partner with the City of Hope on annual “Think Cure” cancer research fundraisers. As the Hernandez family scrambled to learn the options for treating multiple …

Dodgers pull off the expected in a very unexpected way

Most Dodger fans knew the Dodgers were going to try to get rid of the contracts of Adrian Gonzalez and at least one of Scott Kazmir or Brandon McCarthy but no one expected them to trade all three in one big fell swoop. It helps of course that the new GM for the Braves was …

Yu Darvish just Dave Goltz’d the fans

Watching the game unfold last night I was struck with a little bit of deja vu. It was kind of eery how game seven mirrored the last time I had sat at Dodger Stadium in a must-win game against the Houston Astros. It was Oct 6th, 1980 and the Dodgers had just swept the Houston Astros …

LAD First half leaderboards – Home Runs

Was kind of hoping that Cody Bellinger would knock Gary Sheffield off the top of this leaderboard but his prodigious home run power fell off in July.  Bellinger ends up tied with Eric Karros for 3rd place with twenty-five home runs. I wish I could remember the great first half that Karros had in 2000 …

Talk about a rewrite

On Monday, June 19th I posted the best total base games by any Dodgers against the Mets at Dodger Stadium. At the time I was surprised to find that the Dodgers have never had a double-digit total base game with that criteria.
