Thompson back-pedaled up the odd hill in front of the fence, reached...

Actually, Sergio Romo is not good

Recently, Dustin wrote an article about why the Dodgers shouldn’t give up on Sergio Romo. I, person who pines for Romo to be DFA’d almost daily, have a different opinion on that. Oddly enough, I’m not sure I need to do all that much, as it’s the easy position to take, but that doesn’t mean …

Dodgers Roster: A Few Early Season Surprises

I think if I had to name the one thing I love the most about baseball, it’s that it just so darn unpredictable. Almost a third of the way into the season, there are quite a few things that no fan of the Dodgers could have predicted. Take last night’s game, for example. After Rich Hill could not throw a strike to save his life on Wednesday, and the Cardinals took a lead that the...

His first at-bat was from the left side while facing the St. Louis Cardinals’ Mike Leake, so he was supposed to use a helmet with the ear flap on the right...

Joc Pederson leaves game after second rough collision of night in Dodgers outfield

Cody Bellinger Was Built to Be This Way

The first time I met Dodgers slugger Cody Bellinger, we didn’t have a lot of time, so I just shook his hand and said that I’d seen him enough to think “you swing really hard, every time, don’t you?” He smiled. “Always been this way.” And that part remained true when we reconnected. But he also opened my eyes to the parts of his game that were molded along the way. ...

Vin Scully pays tribute to Dodgers’ Spanish voice Jaime Jarrin and his remote broadcasting

Make sure not to steal bases when ahead by a large sum. These are among the most notorious unwritten rules in the game.Though, there are some who believe hitters should not swing at a 3-0 pitch when a game is completely...
