What Has Made The Dodger Offense More Successful In 2015?

PAGES: 1 | 2 When new president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman traded away Dee Gordon and Matt Kemp and allowed Hanley Ramirez to depart as a free agent, the common narrative was that the Los Angeles Dodgers were sacrificing offense to become a more defensive-oriented team. The latter part of that narrative turned out to be accurate to no one's surprise, as Howie Kendrick, Joc Pederson, and Jimmy Ro ...

The Dodgers’ No. 3 Outfielder Isn’t Who You Think It Is

PAGES: 1 | 2 The Los Angeles Dodgers have an outfield problem, but as I say that, I'd bet we're thinking of different "problem-creators". When you ask folks around the league about the logjam in the outfield, everyone will quickly jump into a debate about Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier. You'll hear how Ethier can't hit left-handed pitching, how Crawford is more consistent but probably less spectacular and y ...

Trending Up, Trending Down: Andre Ethier Capitalizing On Opportunities

PAGES: 1 | 2 A week removed from sweeping the Seattle Mariners and Colorado Rockies, the Los Angeles Dodgers looked to extend their seven-game winning streak against division rivals, San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres. The first series against the Giants at AT&T Park didn't go as planned, as Los Angeles got swept in three games and lost the latter two in walk-off fashion. On a positive note, the Dodg ...

Dodgers Nation Roundtable: Should Alex Guerrero Or Juan Uribe Start?

PAGES: 1 | 2 To some fans, the Los Angeles Dodgers have a problem at third base. No, it's not because of injury, or a player or players on the roster being unable to adequately play the position, but because the wrong person is starting. At 36 years old, Juan Uribe's start to the season has resembled nothing of his play to close out 2014, at least offensively. However to his credit, Uribe extended his modes ...

POLL: Should The Dodgers Replace Juan Uribe With Alex Guerrero?

The Los Angeles Dodgers entered the 2015 season with incredible depth not only throughout their active roster, but also in their farm system. However, with that depth came some difficult decisions when needing to set the roster for Opening Day. The Dodgers have since shuffled a handful of players back and forth from the Minors as they've needed to fill an occasional spot start or hole here and there. Perhap ...

Magic Is Right: Dodgers Aren’t Hurt One Bit By SportsNet LA Impasse

PAGES: 1 | 2 | 3 I planned to open this column with a witty remark about how well the Los Angeles Dodgers are playing, followed by some version of a “Or so I’m told, because I haven’t seen the games” punchline. Then I changed course. After a season and change's worth of roadblock between Time Warner Cable, DirecTV, and the Dodgers, which has kept the Blue off television for roughly 70 percent of the Los Ang ...

Dodgers Nation Wishes Joc Pederson A Happy 23rd Birthday

In the 11th round of the 2010 draft, the Los Angeles Dodgers drafted an 18-year-old centerfielder out of Palo Alto High School. Today, that centerfielder, who goes by the name of Joc Pederson, celebrates his 23rd birthday by starting in center field for the Dodgers at AT&T Park, as the Dodgers will take on the rival San Francisco Giants. Pederson had been the top prospect in the Dodgers organization for the ...

Trending Up, Trending Down: Kendrick Shows ‘Howie’ Do It

PAGES: 1 | 2 The Los Angeles Dodgers entered the second week of the regular season tied for third place in the National League West with a 3-3 record. On paper, their upcoming opponents of the Seattle Mariners and Colorado Rockies seemed like tough matchups. However, that isn't necessarily how things unfolded on the field. It took a 10th-inning win over the Mariners and a walk-off in the ninth, but the Dodg ...

This Day In Dodgers History: Vin Scully Calls His First Dodger Game

Pedro Baez, Yimi Garcia Provide Reason For Optimism In Dodgers Bullpen

PAGES: 1 | 2 I'll be the first to admit I've overreacted about the Los Angeles Dodgers bullpen thus far. It was the fourth game of the season, and the Dodgers had just lost a 4-3 heartbreaker in Arizona thanks in large part to J.P. Howell's inability to find the strike zone. It was brutal. Here was Howell, the person who I believed to be the only reliable reliever the Dodgers had at the start of the season, ...

Dodgers News: Alex Guerrero Grateful For Opportunity In MLB

Alex Guerrero enjoyed quite a bit of firsts this past week when filling in for Juan Uribe at third base. Guerrero notched his first career RBI, extra-base hit, home run, walk-off hit and pinch-hit home run all in the span of a few days. While Uribe is back in the starting lineup after missing a couple days with a hamstring issues, the Dodgers now know they can count on Guerrero if needed. The Cuban infielde ...
