    Dodgers' Drew Butera having his rough moments behind the plate
    Pitchers rave about the way Drew Butera works behind the plate. He came to the Dodgers last season with a reputation as a defensive whiz and quickly everyone could understand why. Only that’s not to imply he hasn’t had his rough moments....
  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw shows pitching virtuosity in Kansas City

    On this night, no one would be sitting on the edge of the seat. In his first start after his no-hitter, Clayton Kershaw gave up a hit to the second batter he faced. Instead, fans could sit back and appreciate the greatness of Kershaw. On a night when he...

    Dodgers are running in place — will they ever get on a roll?
    Does it really seem so much to ask? A little roll? Stringing a few wins together? Some actual movement in a forward direction? Right now the Dodgers are kings of treading water, which I guess is swell if you’re on a water polo team but doesn&...

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

    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,...
  • Clayton Kershaw shuts down Royals in Dodgers' 2-0 win

    Not that Clayton Kershaw has built unrealistic expectations or anything, but the guy gave up six hits Tuesday. And get this, he walked a batter. He did, however, hold the Kansas City Royals scoreless all night, which was a very good thing because the...

    A.J. Ellis takes a hit in Dodgers' 5-4 win over Royals
    KEY MOMENT: A.J. Ellis, in the batter's box, turned his back to the mound. It was the eighth inning, with the score tied, 4-4. The bases were loaded. The ball was coming at him. Ellis realized the ball would hit him. He absorbed the hit by pitch, and...
  • 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...
  • Dodgers could be ready to do a Price check

    Dodgers could be ready to do a Price check
    The most significant development regarding the Dodgers on Wednesday might not have happened here. It might have happened in Florida, where David Price walked off the mound in the ninth inning and waved to the fans of the Tampa Bay Rays. "If this is my...
  • 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...
