Dodgers Highlight Of The Week: Ramirez Walk-Off Home Run

Your browser does not support iframes. The setting at Dodger Stadium for Saturday's game with the Chicago Cubs was one rarely seen at Chavez Ravine. For starters, it was unusually humid at Chavez Ravine, which was then accompanied by rain in the latter stages of the game. As for on-the-field matters, Hyun-Jin Ryu was pitching on five days' rest but it didn't come with the typical sharpness Ryu's had in his ...

Trade Deadline: Grading The Dodgers’ (Lack of) Moves

PAGES: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 The Los Angeles Dodgers were unusually quiet at the trade deadline; making just a single move in the final week of July. The front office seemed intent on hanging on to its top three prospects -- Joc Pederson, Corey Seager and Julio Urias -- and they did just that. While selling the farm wasn’t part of the plan, the organization didn’t fill any holes either. Let’s take a look at the ...

Dodgers Nation Wishes Chad Billingsley A Happy Birthday

Los Angeles Dodgers starter Chad Billingsley has been plagued by the injury bug for two consecutive seasons. The right-hander was thought to be on the road to recovery after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2013 and receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection in late-April of 2014. However, due to a torn flexor tendon in his elbow, Billingsley was forced to undergo a second season-ending surgery of his caree ...

Trade Deadline: Should The Dodgers Be Satisfied At Catcher?

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been rumored to be looking for starting pitching, relief pitching and a way to relieve their outfield logjam this July. One position that hasn't been talked about is the one that the Dodgers are struggling with the most: catcher. Yes, A.J. Ellis is the everyday catcher. Yes, he was never known to provide much offense. Yes, he is Clayton Kershaw's best friend. No, that does not m ...

Grade Of The Week: Josh Beckett And Dan Haren Struggle

After starting the second half of the season by dropping two out of three against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Los Angeles Dodgers took on the Pittsburgh Pirates and also found themselves only winning game. However, things were much different for the Dodgers over the weekend as the team finished off their road trip by sweeping the San Francisco Giants. Grade of the Week: B+ Pros: The top three of the pitchi ...

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. Yasiel Puig tripled in the first inning and scored on Adrian Gonz ...

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. Dee Gordon has been a pleasant surprise, though there are some notable second basemen on the trade market. The club’s biggest area of need could be behind the plate, where A.J. Ellis has struggled with the bat and the glove and Drew Butera offers little more than an emergency reli ...

Dodgers Should Prevent Haren From Costing More Than Wins

During the past off-season, the Los Angeles Dodgers made multiple signings to address their pitching -- both starting and relief. One of the additions was veteran right-hander Dan Haren, who was coming off a 10-14 season with the Washington Nationals. Although Haren posted a sub-.500 record, 2013 was his third consecutive season with double-digit wins and at least 30 starts. Haren's one-year, $10 million co ...

Trade Deadline: Relief Pitching Targets For Dodgers

PAGES: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 With the Joakim Soria and Huston Street deals, I’d much rather prefer the Los Angeles Dodgers attempt to solve their bullpen issues in-house. They have talented arms in Triple-A like Jose Dominguez, Pedro Baez, Yimi Garcia and a guy who should have been with the big club all year in Paco Rodriguez. However, since management has made it clear that they prefer veterans over young players, ...

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 ...
