DODGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Dodgers Fans Screwed By TV Deal

Dodgers fans continue to be screwed by the team and the bogus TV deal that keeps millions of fans from watching their beloved boys in blue.  How many hundreds of millions do sports execs have to make before they are full?

Hyun-Jin Ryu stays perfect on the road in Dodgers' 2-1 victory

Next time Hyun-Jin Ryu starts at home, disguise Dodger Stadium. Put a giant Coke bottle beyond left field. Add a pool in center. Slap Petco Park signs in the dugout or something. Anything to make Ryu believe he’s pitching on the road, where currently he is invincible. Ryu was at it again Thursday afternoon, holding the Giants scoreless in his seven innings to help the Dodgers...

Dodgers @ Giants April 16, 2014: The Problem With Juan Uribe’s Offense

Juan Uribe has been getting a lot of praise for his offense so far this year. And rightfully so: Uribe currently leads the Dodgers’ batters in wRC+. However, he’s taken an unusual path to get there. So far this season, Uribe has not drawn a single walk. Including last year’s postseason (when he didn’t draw any walks either), Uribe has gone 101 plate appearances since his...

Kenley Jansen Is Suddenly The Worst Closer In Baseball, Or Something

Oddly — or, I don’t know, maybe it’s not — the tenor of discussion following last night’s extra-inning loss is less about Brandon League being terrible than it is about Kenley Jansen being unable to hold onto a 2-1 lead in the ninth inning. For clarity, here’s what Jansen did. He struck out Hector Sanchez on four pitches. Then, he got Angel Pagan to hit a grounder...

Dodgers 2, Giants 3: Baseball Is Dumb

Baseball is a dumb, dumb sport. Kenley Jansen blew a save on two hits that went 10 feet in the air and now his BABIP is .556. He is the worst and grab the pitchforks or something. Whatever, no energy to deal with dumbasses. The Dodgers kept Brandon League over Paco Rodriguez because … who cares? So of course it comes back to matter in the end and League loses. I didn’t know...
