Clayton Kershaw Drills Jimmy Kimmel In The Face With A Baseball (Video)

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Jimmy Kimmel had Clayton Kershaw on the set of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Monday night and invited the Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher to try to knock an apple off his head with a baseball. If Kimmel could pick anyone for this task, it’s Kershaw, who has walked only 15 batters and hit just one in over 112 innings pitched this season while...

Matt Kemp’s Offense Is Not The Problem

There is no player more polarizing on the Dodgers than Matt Kemp. Recently, as Kemp trade rumors have (predictably) started to get louder, there have been a large variety of reactions. There’s one thing that comes up frequently in our comment section, on twitter, and around the internet which I want to address, though. You can say all you want about Kemp’s defense, but Matt Kemp’s offense...

Los Angeles Dodgers acquire Darwin Barney

The Los Angeles Dodgers made their first splash in the 2014 trade season. Splash is a strong word. It was kind of like they threw a pebble into the Pacific Ocean. But hey, it’s something to write about. Monday afternoon, the Dodgers acquired recently DFA’d Chicago Cubs second baseman Darwin Barney. The Dodgers also received cash from the Cubs, and will send the Cubs a player...

Matt Kemp Is More Valuable In The Dodger Lineup Than Elsewhere

The Dodgers don’t play today. The trade deadline is on Thursday. You’re damned right we’re going to talk about Matt Kemp. More than once, actually, because Brim will be around later today with a math-based look at whether Kemp is still a productive offensive player. (Spoiler alert: he is.) Me, well, I just want to talk about the idea of trading Kemp at all. I suppose I’m...

Los Angeles Dodgers trade rumors: Will Ned Colletti pull the trigger?

For about a month, I’ve been writing about potential trades to improve the Los Angeles Dodgers. With only five days left until the trade deadline, Ned Colletti and the Dodgers still haven’t made any trades.

The Chaos Of The Dodger Outfield

Carl Crawford returned from the disabled list on July 10th, just over two weeks ago. Crawford’s return brought the outfield back up to five players, with no real candidate to play center. I looked at the math of the offense prior to his return, and we’ve had all sorts of fun talking about the outfield shuffle since it re-commenced. So far, it has lived up to advanced billing...

Video: Yasiel Puig hits three triples, ties modern MLB record

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig can make seemingly impossible feats appear to be routine. He makes plays with both his bat and his glove, and certainly entertains fans, teammates and analysts on and off the field. And during Friday night’s Dodgers-Giants game, he was the catalyst behind an 8-1 L.A. win with his awesome plate heroics. He belted out three triples, which tied...

Report: Multiple teams talking with Dodgers about Matt Kemp

The Los Angeles Dodgers are in the midst of a pennant chase and that is obviously the franchise’s top priority. But ranking just below the team’s quest for a World Series title is somehow solving its logjam in the outfield.
