Carl Crawford could be ‘X-Factor’ for Dodgers in NLDS

Heading into a rematch of last year’s National League Championship Series, there are plenty of storylines and important players. But, the proverbial “X-Factor” for the Dodgers in this series is none other than Carl Crawford. Crawford is coming off his best season (119, according to wRC+) since his final year in Tampa Bay (2010, 134 wRC+). He’s also coming off an incredibly...

Adam Wainwright’s Strength Is The Dodgers’ Strength

Adam Wainwright is a very, very good pitcher. In a world without Clayton Kershaw, he would be a perennial Cy Young candidate. This year, he’ll likely finish third behind Kershaw and Johnny Cueto, behind the strength of a 2.38 ERA (66 ERA-) and a 2.88 FIP (79 FIP-). Combined with his 227 innings, those numbers resulted in 4.5 fWAR and 6.9 RA9 WAR this season. His peripherals have...

Los Angeles Dodgers seeking revenge

Los Angeles Dodger fans haven’t forgotten how last season ended. Technically speaking, the 2013 season came to an end on October 13, when the St. Louis Cardinals knocked Clayton Kershaw around for seven runs in four innings. It really didn’t help that the Dodgers only managed to get two hits off Cardinals starter Michael Wacha. That game six was a nightmare for Dodger fans, and...

Mailbag! Send us questions using the form at the right or by emailing thedodgersdigest at gmail dot com. Yoda: does a ws ring change Hanley Ramirez‘ mind about leaving? Nope! Not even a little.

2014′s King Of Driving In Runners

On Sunday, Adrian Gonzalez had two hits, including his 27th homer of the season, and drove in three runs in the Dodgers’ season-ending 10-5 win over Colorado. Already all but guaranteed to lead the NL in runs batted in, the three he brought in yesterday ensured that he’d top Mike Trout and lead all of baseball for […]

Are The Dodgers Primed For An October Run?

#456237452 / As leaves turn from green to brown and chilly nights replace those hot summer nights, the Los Angeles Dodgers find themselves again, National League Western Division Champions. It has been a long and tiring marathon to get there, but they have managed to survive a disappearing offense, imploding bullpen, and injuries to some of their starting rotation...

Dodgers shake up coaching staff

The Los Angeles Dodgers are taking things lightly as they wind down the regular season in preparation for the start of the playoffs next week.

Now is not the time for playoff-bound teams to incur more injuries. Fortunately for the Los Angeles Dodgers, the two that occurred to Dee Gordon and Hanley Ramirez in Saturday's game are mild. Both players will sit out Sunday's season finale, but the Dodgers expect them to recover in time for the National League Division Series, which begins on Friday, October 3. Dee Gordon...

Juan Uribe will manage the Dodgers tomorrow, Don Mattingly said. Kershaw pitching coach. — Pedro Moura (@pedromoura) September 27, 2014 That last tweet was not a joke, folks. — Pedro Moura (@pedromoura)...

Juan Uribe to manage Dodgers in last game of season

The Los Angeles Dodgers have wrapped up the NL West. The Colorado Rockies aren’t playing for anything. So, Sunday’s game between the two is meaningless outside of players getting one last chance to add to their season stats. With both teams largely going through the motions, the Dodgers will take the opportunity to switch things […]

Los Angeles Dodgers: Let us talk about Clayton Kershaw

Ahh yes. My favorite subject. If you’ve been living under a rock for the last 6 months, you probably still have heard about the season Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw is putting up. Kershaw made his last start of the season on Wednesday, in the Giants 9-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants. That win gave the Dodgers the National League West title. Wednesday night...
