Today In Dodgers History: Josh Beckett Throws First Career No-Hitter

Coming to Los Angeles from the Boston Red Sox in the 2012 trade, Josh Beckett struggled to make the impact expected and with a large salary, was widely viewed as a player with a bad contract. Beckett underwent season-ending surgery in 2013 and made a steady return last season. On May 25, 2014, he made history by throwing the first no-hitter of his career, first by a Dodger since 1996 and the 24th in franchi ...

Madison Bumgarner Better Than Clayton Kershaw?… Proving It’s Untrue

PAGES: 1 | 2 Clayton Kershaw isn't pitching as well as we're used to, I get it. The traditional metrics (and we'll get to the non-traditional ones shortly) say that Kershaw is on pace to have the worst ERA of his career and worst WHIP since 2009. But, my friends, the hate has gone wayyyyyyyyy too far. Friday afternoon I was sitting in a restaurant when ESPN's Pardon the Interruption came on — a show I enjoy ...

Los Angeles Dodgers Draft Review: Looking Back On Picks From 2010

PAGES: 1 | 2 With all the NFL Draft talk and grades and evaluations going on last month, I figured it might be fun to look back on the Los Angeles Dodgers' draft history. In doing some research, it seems most players wait — on average — about five years before making their Major-League debuts. This was based on an old Baseball Prospectus piece that mentioned the average number of at-bats a hitter gets in th ...

Looking Back On Sandy Koufax’s 1959 Contract With Dodgers (PHOTO)

While Clayton Kershaw has been the Los Angeles Dodgers dominant left-handed pitcher over the last few years, winning three out of the last four Cy Young awards and a National League MVP, there was a Dodgers lefty before him who was just as impressive, but earned significantly less money. In 2013, then-25-year-old Kershaw signed a seven-year, $215 million contract, which averages to more than $30 million ann ...

Checking In On The Dodgers’ Offseason Signings And Trades

PAGES: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 So, how's it going? In October of 2014, the Los Angeles Dodgers spent $35 million to bring in Andrew Friedman as their new president of baseball operations. Almost immediately, Friedman went about tearing up a team that had just won 94 games. Broadly speaking, the results have been great. The Dodgers are, at worst, the second-best team in the National League right now. They’ve b ...

Dodgers Teammates Tweet Congratulatory Messages To Clayton Kershaw

It took him five starts this season, but Clayton Kershaw at last earned his 100th career win Friday night. In a season where Kershaw hasn't been completely satisfied with his results, he downplayed the accomplishment and spoke more of wanting to win so as not to let his teammates or the organization down.

Brett Anderson Mocks Clayton Kershaw Over Failed Celebrations (PHOTOS)

Along with being considered one of the best pitchers in baseball, Clayton Kershaw has earned the reputation of a serious person. It's well known he's not to be bothered by teammates and media alike on days he takes the mound for the Los Angeles Dodgers, but it's less known that Kershaw is otherwise an easy going personality -- which was seen in the ping pong tournament championship match. While Kershaw has ...

Inclement weather played a large role at Coors Field over the weekend, ultimately postponin ...

Dodgers News: Don Mattingly Not Concerned With Road Record

The Los Angeles Dodgers have 16 wins in their first 25 games, yet there's more to be desired from the reigning NL West champions. Of those 16 wins, 13 of them have been at Dodger Stadium, where they are 13-2 overall. The road is a different story, as the Dodgers are 3-7 and have won just one series away from home.
