Dodgers Hope to Carry Momentum Through Current Homestand

The high-powered Dodgers offense had a very good weekend at home, scoring a total of 26 runs, and they didn’t score less than six runs in any one game. Even though the beginning of Saturday’s game looked as though it may be bad, even possibly a no-hitter, the offense battled back to score six runs. Invariably. that was not enough to win the game. However, the Dodgers still took...

This is the first version of my MLB Draft Big Board for the Dodgers. I’m planning to do four of these leading up to the draft (every Monday).

Five Takeaways: Bellinger makes more history in loss

by Rowan Kavner On May 20, 1972, the fastest game ever at Dodger Stadium occurred, with Al Downing tossing a 3–0 win in 90 minutes for the Dodgers. It was neither as quick nor as victorious 45 years later. On May 20, 2017, Saturday’s game already lasted 105 minutes before the halfway mark, at which point 10 Marlins runs were on the board and the Dodgers were still searching...

Dodgers Roster: How a Few Injuries Have Opened the Doors to Early Success

Instead of putting together our normal weekend injury report, we thought perhaps a more interesting approach would be looking at a few of the positives that have resulted for the Dodgers from several of the unfortunate injuries that have occurred during the first six weeks of the season.

Marlins’ Don Mattingly goes off on Dodgers following blowout loss

There are unwritten rules in baseball. Don’t show up the opposing pitcher by lollygagging around the bases after a homer. Don’t step on the pitchers’ mound. 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...

Dodgers enabled by 10-day disabled list rule

In the beginning, God put in a six-day work week, followed by a day of rest. Was there a disabled list at the time? Heavens no. He called it Sunday. Adam and Eve were essentially the first to go on the DL, with whatever misdirect was given to biblical scribes. God didn't have to use the term "upper body injury" in his PR release, but knowledgeable fact-checkers later confirmed it...

Yasiel Puig admires home run a bit too long, in true Puig fashion (VIDEO)

Bat flips are already becoming a bit controversial, so Dodgers slugger Yasiel Puig is finding other ways to show opposing pitchers that he absolutely destroyed their pitches. Puig hit a monstrous home run off Edinson Volquez on Thursday night which traveled 442 feet. It was also the hardest and longest home run he’s hit in his career.

Clayton Kershaw warms up during benches clearing incident

Tempers flared and benches cleared during Wednesday’s game between the Giants and Dodgers. None of it phased Clayton Kershaw, who just wanted to back on the mound so he could pitch. In the top of the third inning, Johnny Cueto threw a pitch that went up and in to Yasmani Grandal.

Everyone Is on the Disabled List Right Now

Over the course of the last week, the Dodgers placed four players on the disabled list, most in baseball. Andrew Toles, with his torn ACL, would have gone on the DL in any other year, and that might also be true for Adam Liberatore and his strained hamstring. But Kenta Maeda (tightness in hamstring) and Brandon McCarthy (sore left shoulder) are dealing with less debilitating issues...
