WATCH: Noah Syndergaard tossed after throwing behind Chase Utley

With each Chase Utley at-bat against the Mets, everyone immediately wonders if New York pitchers will take some retaliatory measure for what happened last October. Whether it simply got away from him or he intended to do it, we might not know for sure. Nonetheless, Noah Syndergaard threw behind Chase Utley in the top of the third on Saturday night. Instead of issuing a warning,...

The Dodgers are sending Urias down to the minor leagues on Saturday, a day after he made his first and only career start. Urias, a 19-year-old prospect signed by the team in 2012, struggled with his control in his debut. The teenager allowed five...

Chase Utley’s family received death threats after his slide broke Ruben Tejada’s leg during the 2015 National League Division Series, according to a report. Mets fans were so furious with Utley’s slide that his family was targeted with death threats, and Utley did not stay in the same hotel as his Dodgers teammates when they made the trip to New York, though that was mere...

Attempts by Dodgers to acquire premiere relievers have fallen short

The Dodgers’ bullpen has been a point of much contention for many years — but it’s been especially true in recent years. While lamenting the lack of upgrades, some have claimed the Dodgers haven’t tried to upgrade the bullpen in recent times, but that is just patently false. Following the 2014 season, the Dodgers were interested in Andrew Miller. Chad wasn’t too keen on...

Joey Votto booed by Dodgers fans for stomping paper airplane

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto drew the ire of the crowd at Dodger Stadium Tuesday after he aggressively stomped on a paper airplane that landed in the infield during the 7th inning of his team’s 8-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The fact that the paper airplane was tossed from the upper deck in left field — in foul territory no less — should have elicited a...

Puig benched for not hustling, cracks Don Mattingly joke

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was yanked from Tuesday night’s game against the Cincinnati Reds for admiring a long RBI single. Puig smoked a ball off the right field wall in the bottom of the sixth, scoring Trayce Thompson to give the Dodgers a 4-2 lead. When he hit it, Puig clearly thought he had an opposite-field home run, so he admired the shot for a moment. That...

Kershaw Is Forcing Us to Confront the Pedro Question

Over the last 365 days, Clayton Kershaw has been baseball’s best pitcher. That isn’t a particularly enlightening sentence given that he’s almost certainly been the league’s best pitcher over the last several years, as well. At this point, the question isn’t really if Kershaw is the best pitcher, but rather if he is the best overall player, Mike Trout included. Kershaw...

Yasiel Puig yanked from game for not running out a deep flyball

I happened to have on the Dodgers-Padres game on Sunday, and in the ninth inning of a tied game, Los Angeles’ A.J. Ellis laid down a sacrifice bunt attempt with Yasiel Puig on second base and no outs. Ellis executed the bunt as he was supposed to, forcing San Diego third baseman Yangervis Solarte to make the play… and Puig didn’t move. Yes, bunts are lame, but there’s still...

Is Clayton Kershaw already a Hall of Famer?

On Monday night, Clayton Kershaw laid waste to a bad Cincinnati Reds team. The Los Angeles Dodgers ace threw a complete game shutout, allowing two hits, walking one, and striking out seven while throwing just 102 pitches. It was the tenth time in ten starts Kershaw had completed at least seven innings. His strikeout total of seven was actually his third-lowest mark of the year....
