Cardinals 3, Dodgers 0: 3 hours of life you’re never getting back

Don Mattingly and A.J. Ellis (A.J. ELLIS!!!) got ejected from tonight’s game for arguing balls and strikes, which summarizes how erratic the zone was today. How much did it matter? Probably not much, as the Dodgers offense was limited to seven baserunners and got shutout by the trio of John Lackey, Kevin Siegrist, and Trevor Rosenthal. Mike Bolsinger came back to reality...

Jimmy Rollins sees Dodgers' future at short, and he won't stand in way

ST. LOUIS -- The Dodgers are not ready to promote shortstop Corey Seager, not even after his recent 13-for-18 outburst at Triple A. But when the moment comes -- if it indeed it comes this season -- Jimmy Rollins will be prepared. Rollins, the Dodgers' current shortstop, entered Friday night batting .203 with a .617 OPS. He is 36, in the final year of his contract. And he knows that...

Chris Hatcher’s release point cause of perceived struggles

People have said Chris Hatcher is bad because of his 6.91 ERA. People have said Chris Hatcher is good because of his 2.21 FIP. Guess what: You’re both right. Hatcher has been one of the more polarizing players on the 2015 Dodgers’ roster, and he really isn’t as bad as his ERA makes him out to be, but he hasn’t been as good as his FIP would lead you to believe. According to...

Dodger pitcher Greinke has string of 10 straight quality starts

How long before Zack Greinke starts to get questioned like Clayton Kershaw: What’s wrong with Greinke? After starting off the season 5-0 through his first six starts, some might start to wonder why he no wins and one loss in his last four starts. No need to worry though as Greinke has allowed exactly one earned run in each of those starts and gone at least six innings. He also...

Los Angeles Dodgers trade Juan Uribe

Juan Uribe was in the second year of his contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and hitting .191 with two home runs. Uribe was the exact opposite of “fan favorite”. He looked lost at the plate for...

Juan Uribe to be traded to Braves in a bizarre deal for a bizarre day

Juan Uribe was traded to the Braves in a deal involving Alberto Callaspo yesterday morning. Then he wasn’t because Callaspo said he loved playing for the Braves. Then it wasn’t ever going to get revived and Uribe was giving the press damage control quotes before the game started. Then Callaspo changed his mind about the whole thing and the terms of the trade ended up finalized...

Dodgers & Mets Should Be Trade Partners

It’s been well documented the needs of the Los Angeles Dodgers – to bolster its starting staff behind Greinke and Kershaw – especially with the news of Hyun-Jin Ryu’s injury and to augment their back end rather than relying on Carlos Frias or Mike Bolsinger for the whole season (although they’ve both been very good to this point). They also can’t rely on the continued...

Los Angeles Dodgers’ secret weapon: Mike Bolsinger?

I am so all over the Mike Bolsinger bandwagon. If you were playing with Bolsinger on a video game, you would hate him. He really only throws two pitches: a fastball that is only in the high-80s, and a curveball. He very occasionally throws a change-up, but it’s rare. So with his low velocity and limited pitch selection, there is nothing glamorous or sexy about the pitches he throws...

The Dodgers were and still are clear favorites to win the NL West division. But the path to that destination just got a lot more difficult.

The Dodgers still have a dominating top of the rotation with Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke but without hope for Ryu’s return, the drop-off from...

The three-time Cy Young award winner and consensus best pitcher in baseball finds himself sporting a 4.24 ERA in mid-May, prompting questions about what might be wrong.
