Los Angeles Dodgers trade rumors: do they need starting pitching?

Going into the 2016 MLB season, huge questions surrounded the state of the pitching on the Los Angeles Dodgers. Outside of uber-ace Clayton Kershaw the rotation was in flux due to injuries, and outside of Kenley the Jansen the bullpen was suspect. Hyun-Jin Ryu, Brett Anderson, and Brandon McCarthy all started the season off on the DL. They were supposed to stabilize the mid and...

Dodgers 4, Nationals 3: Yasiel Puig walks it off with a Little League homer

The Dodgers … is this the same team that couldn’t buy a break since like March? I honestly can’t believe it. They have now won six in a row and eight of their last nine after Yasiel Puig singled up the middle with a runner on first in the bottom of the ninth and Michael Taylor misplayed it to lead to a walk-off three-base error. *Deletes* pic.twitter.com/iXrs2DPvD8 —...

LeBron drops F-bomb during Cavs’ parade (Video)

LeBron James sure had himself a grand ole time at the Cleveland Cavaliers’ parade on Wednesday. Celebrating Cleveland’s first major pro sports championship since 1964, LeBron certainly was feeling the loose atmosphere. He paraded around with the Larry O’Brien Trophy, and he also rocked the mic.

The Kenta Maeda Guide to Soft Contact

The scouting report on Kenta Maeda never suggested he was overpowering. He was never expected to post extreme strikeout totals, and while his above-average 24% strikeout rate is somewhat surprising, it’s only part of the reason the 28-year-old Japanese rookie has been one of the 20 or 25 best pitchers in baseball this season. The other part is the part that makes more sense for...

Dodgers 4, Nationals 1: Clayton Kershaw’s K/BB ratio is now 20.1

In what was billed as a clash of pitching titans in Clayton Kershaw and Stephen Strasburg set on the national stage of ESPN, the hyped matchup took a twist at the last minute when Strasburg had to be scratched from his start for Yumeiro Petit. Luckily, Kershaw didn’t have to be scratched from his, and the Dodgers prevailed over the Nationals by a score of 4-1. I predict the...

Los Angeles Dodgers’ hitting is a serious issue

This year has been rough at the plate for the Los Angeles Dodgers as they have become one of the worst hitting teams in baseball so far this season. Despite having the highest payroll in baseball, the Dodgers on many nights look as if they are lost at the plate and lack talent. They currently rank 28th in the league in batting average with a measly .234 percentage and are in the...

Exchanging Zach Lee and Chris Taylor is win-win for Dodgers and Mariners

The Dodgers have traded right-handed pitcher Zach Lee to the Mariners for middle infielder Chris Taylor in what seems like a nice piece of business for both teams. —– As you all know by now, Lee was a much-hyped first-round draft pick of the Dodgers back in 2010, and it was seen as a coup when they managed to lure him away from a potential quarterback job at LSU. However, Lee...

Dodgers can get themselves right with a few moves

Remember when the Dodgers were an annual lock to win the National League West? Well, they’re not anymore. In fact, they’re not even a lock to reach the postseason this year.
