All the young dudes

The 2020 Zips projections are out and as suspected the Dodgers have a bevy of talent fighting for five rotation spots. With Ryu gone the rotation isn’t ideal but it is basically the same type of rotation that they have taken into every season since Friedman became President with the difference this year is that …

Just saying

The Dodgers brought up Caleb Ferguson on June 6th and he’s now made three starts for the Dodgers with each start getting better and better but doing little to prove that he should actually be in the major leagues right now.¬† The Dodgers have won only one of those three starts and that was due …

Ex-Dodgers flourish for Tampa for one night

Three ex-Dodgers who now all pitch for Tampa and had seen nothing but tough times put all that behind them for one night as the three combined to pitch a one-hit shutout over the Oakland Athletics.

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 …

Bullpen Update

Tom Koehler the pitcher many hoped would replace the arm of Brandon Morrow had his season flushed when he hurt his right shoulder and will be out a minimum of two months. This will have a trickle down effect on the Dodger bullpen since Koehler was already penciled in as a lock. With Dave Roberts …
