  • Letters: Can't see what they can't hit

    Letters: Can't see what they can't hit
    I understand from reading the L.A. Times sports page that Josh Beckett threw a no-hitter followed by Hyun-Jin Ryu's seven innings of a perfect game, but I don't believe it because "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to see it...."...
  • Will Dodgers respond to Don Mattingly?

    Will Dodgers respond to Don Mattingly?
    There was nothing surprising about Don Mattingly's recent criticism of the Dodgers, other than perhaps the decision to use an obscenity to describe the team. Mattingly tried something like this early last year, when the Dodgers were playing even worse...
  • Dodgers get 7-2 win over Rockies and better review from Don Mattingly

    When talking about his team's performance Friday night, Don Mattingly was back to using words that could be printed in a family newspaper. With the Dodgers opening a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies with a 7-2 victory at Coors Field,...
  • Dodgers get positive injury updates on Juan Uribe, A.J. Ellis

    Injuries can be like waves, coming in one moment, heading out the next. Now the Dodgers, who probably figure they’re a little due for some good injury news, appear about to receive some. Manager Don Mattingly said that third baseman Juan Uribe...
  • Juan Uribe remains out of Dodgers' lineup after pregame running

    Careful as she goes. Juan Uribe remained out of the Dodgers’ lineup Sunday afternoon, the team still uncertain whether it will need to place him on the disabled list with what they are calling a mild hamstring strain. Dodgers Manager Don...
  • Hyun-Jin Ryu shoulder gets the OK; Yasiel Puig is out of lineup

    Sometimes it’s just better to be cautious. If flags went up when the Dodgers sent Hyun-Jin Ryu back to Los Angeles to have his sore shoulder examined by Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Sunday, seems they were just being careful. After being examined,...
  • Dodgers' A.J. Ellis knows he has to earn his keep

    A.J. Ellis is 33, an age at which a player generally has made his reputation. Whether he is an All-Star or a bench player, he is who he is. Ellis might be an exception to the rule. He has only two full major league seasons to his credit, so he is not...
  • Dodgers' Yasiel Puig, Dee Gordon exit game because of hip injuries

    For all the problems the Dodgers have encountered this season, they have remained relatively healthy. Until now, perhaps. Yasiel Puig and Dee Gordon sustained hip injuries Saturday at Coors Field, prompting their early exits from a 5-4, 10-inning...
  • Carl Crawford unsure where he fits in Dodgers' outfield

    As Carl Crawford approaches his return from the disabled list, the Dodgers' outfield overcrowding is about to resurface as an issue. Crawford is not promised an everyday job when he comes back. So, although the Dodgers have considered whether to...
  • Scott Van Slyke has two homers, four RBIs in Dodgers' 6-2 win

    Scott Van Slyke has two homers, four RBIs in Dodgers' 6-2 win
    KEY MOMENT: Scott Van Slyke already had hit one home run against left-hander Tony Cingrani when, in the fifth inning, Van Slyke came up with two on and two out. The Reds had right-hander Logan Ondrusek warming up, but they stuck with Cingrani. He gave...
  • Dodgers give up two quick runs, can't catch Reds in 4-1 loss

    KEY MOMENT: Zack Greinke gave up hits on three consecutive pitches — a single by Skip Schumaker, a home run by Todd Frazier and a double by Joey Votto — before getting an out. The Reds had a 2-1 lead and never looked back, although Greinke...
  • Dodgers again flex their muscles against Diamondbacks in 7-0 win

    Dodgers again flex their muscles against Diamondbacks in 7-0 win
    If every team they played were like the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Dodgers would be the ’27 Yankees. They’d be less a team than a legend. Forget cable, network television would demand they be on in prime time. When the Dodgers play the...
