Posted on November 12, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Monday was an important milestone in the MLB offseason. It was the deadline for players to accept or reject qualifying offers. Of all the free agents on the market this winter, seven received a qualifying offer, and Hyun-Jin Ryu of the Dodgers was the only one to […]

Posted on November 2, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Just in case there was any doubt in anyone’s mind, one of the best pitchers in baseball isn’t going anywhere. Left-handed ace Clayton Kershaw signed a contract extension with the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday. The deal is worth $93 million over the next three seasons. It […]

Posted on October 15, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Tied up at one game apiece, the NLCS shifts back to Los Angeles for three games starting with Monday’s Game 3. The Brewers used their bullpen to hold onto their lead and secure a win in Game 1. However, the Dodgers were able to get to the […]

Posted on August 12, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Los Angeles Dodgers were dealt a tough blow last week when they learned closer Kenley Jansen would be out for at least a month. Jansen needs to receive treatment after experiencing an irregular heartbeat in Denver on Thursday. However, the Dodgers have been quick to respond […]

Posted on June 22, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is getting his way. Rather than making a minor league rehab against his wishes, the Dodgers will activate Kershaw from the DL. The lefty will start the team’s game Saturday night against the Mets. It will be Kershaw’s second start since […]

Posted on June 2, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Clayton Kershaw’s time back on the active roster turned out to be brief. The Los Angeles Dodgers placed Kershaw on the 10-day DL Friday night, one day after the lefty was activated from the DL to start against the Phillies. This time, it was a lower back […]

Posted on May 31, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Things are finally starting to look up for the Los Angeles Dodgers. They enter the final day of May as winners of 10 of their last 13 games. That run has them within 3.5 games of first place in the NL West. More importantly, they will close […]

Posted on March 3, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Despite winning five straight division titles, the Los Angeles Dodgers have been unable to win their first World Series since 1988. Last year, they finally reached the World Series but came one game short against the Astros. Of course, on paper, the Dodgers remain one of the […]

Posted on October 29, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine It’s amazing how fast momentum can change in the World Series. After George Springer broke up Alex Wood’s no-hitter and shutout with a home run, the Houston Astros looked poised to take a 3-1 series lead. But a brutal collapse by the Houston bullpen gave the game […]

Posted on October 28, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine As many would have expected, the Houston Astros were excited to return home in Game 3 of the World Series, and it showed. The Astros were quick to jump on the previously untouchable Yu Darvish, turning a 4-run 2nd inning into a 5-3 win and a 2-1 […]

Posted on October 23, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The 10 teams that made it to the baseball postseason this year could all be considered legitimate threats to reach the World Series. That being said, there should be little surprise that the Dodgers and Astros are the two teams left playing in the 2017 World Series. […]

Posted on October 18, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine After their 6-1 win in Game 3 Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers are just one game away from reaching the World Series. Yu Darvish out-pitched Kyle Hendricks, allowing the Dodgers to get their bats going and essentially cruise to their sixth straight postseason win. One more […]

Posted on October 2, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine After 162 games, the 10 teams in the MLB postseason have been decided. Despite a disappointing lack of drama in September, with most division races decided by huge margins, the playoffs should be epic after the league appeared to be quite top-heavy this season. Picking a winner […]

Posted on August 23, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The Los Angeles Dodgers are undoubtedly going to the postseason, but for the time being, they have a growing list of injury concerns. With the likes of Clayton Kershaw and Yu Darvish already on the DL, the Dodgers added Alex Wood and Cody Bellinger to the DL […]
