There now, feel better?
Those Dodgers, suddenly all adrift and looking lost, got it together in a big way Tuesday night in a 9-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks to snap their four-game losing streak.
Amazing what getting a couple of big bats...

Yeah, right, and apparently pigs can fly. Because the Dodgers can seemingly win every kind of ridiculous game known to man, and a few never before known.
The Dodgers won again Wednesday, won in perhaps their most unlikely fashion yet. They won when they...

And then order was restored. All was calm. They worked counts, came up with some timely hits, made no real miscues.
It hardly hurt any that the Dodgers had their hottest pitcher – nope, not Clayton Kershaw – on the mound, but they did more...

It was all backward, all wrong. The weather was semi-muggy, as if the Dodgers were playing the Cubs in Chicago. The mighty Dodgers offense acted like something the talent-thin Cubs might produce.
And Clayton Kershaw looked almost mortal.
It all turned...

It’s panic in the streets! The Dodgers, baseball’s latest world beaters, are in a horrifying slump!
They fell, 6-2, on Monday to the lowly Miami Marlins, marking a second consecutive loss -- which is the first time they have lost consecutive...

They’re in, they’re out, they’re somewhere.
Don Mattingly posted the lineup he hopes will clinch the National League West on Wednesday, and once again players were coming and going.
Back after being out since Saturday with a bad back...

CINCINNATI — The youngest of Mark Ellis' three children is a 2-year-old girl named Dylan. So when Sarah Ellis, wife of the Dodgers' second baseman, read about the death of an 8-year-old Indiana boy named Dylan Williams following a baseball...

And now a voice from the Dodgers’ not-so-distant past.
Scott Van Slyke, who has seemingly spent half his season jettisoning up and down between the Dodgers and the minors this season, was summoned to pinch-hit in the 11th inning Tuesday in game...

Mr. Kemp, meet Mr. Ramirez.
Manager Don Mattingly did this weird thing prior to Tuesday’s game against the Diamondbacks. He handed in a real, live lineup.
Matt Kemp, the guy they thought was still running too tentatively with that sore hamstring...

So really, honestly, this time it could be different? This time a Dodgers team finally approaching full strength and buoyed by the arrival of phenom Yasiel Puig could actually be readying a real run?
There were signs again Monday night that it could...

As much entertainment as Yasiel Puig has provided in his three weeks with the Dodgers, his presence hasn't had a pronounced effect on the team's win-loss record.
Until now, perhaps.
By virtue of a 3-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants at Dodger...

And then on Wednesday, all was calm. No hit batters, no ejections, no bubbling testosterone.
There was just a pretty decent baseball game, ultimately won 8-6 in 12 innings by the Diamondbacks before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 41,927.
