Highlight Of The Week: Greinke Strikes Out Four In One Inning

Your browser does not support iframes. The Los Angeles Dodgers sent Zack Greinke to the mound as they began a key three-game series against division rival San Francisco Giants on Friday. Manager Don Mattingly purposely set his starting rotation so Greinke would start the series opener, and he'd be followed by Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu.

Trade Deadline: Offensive Trade Targets For The Dodgers

Next Page: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 The Los Angeles Dodgers’ lineup card is crowded as it is. However, there’s always room for improvement.

Trade Deadline: Starting Pitching Targets For Dodgers

PAGES: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 To be honest, I don’t watch the show. However, I’ve seen a few episodes where people hold onto what they have for too long and pass up hitting it big, which sounds like a great parable for the trade deadline. Remember back when the Los Angeles Dodgers couldn’t let go of guys like Joel Guzman or Andy LaRoche without getting a star in return? Now, that’s not to say I think the Dodgers sho ...
