    New troops can't get Dodgers offense going in 3-0 loss to Pirates

    Yasiel Puig's first act with Dodgers is a thriller
    Wednesday night's game between the Dodgers and the Padres wasn't held at Dodger Stadium, as scheduled. It took place at Yasiel Puig World. Disney might try to buy the place and raise ticket prices some more. Hours before the Cuban overnight...
  • Dodgers walk off with wild victory against Braves, 2-1

    The Dodgers won in walk-off fashion. And believe it or not, Yasiel Puig had nothing to do with the late-game heroics. He was standing in the on-deck circle as Juan Uribe stood at the plate with runners on the corners and one out. Braves reliever Anthony...

    Dodgers rally for 5-3 win as Ted Lilly shines, Matt Kemp fumes
    Give the Dodgers a moment for it to soak in, to refresh memories. It has been awhile. The Dodgers lost a lead, rallied to regain it and then even built upon it a tad. All around a little Matt Kemp drama. After losing a 3-1 lead almost solely...

    Don Mattingly is worth saving, but who among Dodgers can do it?
    From the moment Don Mattingly made his Dodgers managerial debut in the spring of 2011, he has made it his mission to protect his players. He shielded them from the distractions of the end of the Frank McCourt era, allowing the talents of Matt Kemp and...
  • Dodgers mulling Dee Gordon as a second baseman

    Now this seems an experiment worth undertaking: Dee Gordon, second baseman. For the last two days, Gordon has been taking pregame grounders for the Albuquerque Isotopes at second base. This is not because second baseman Mark Ellis is more...

    For Dodgers' Mark Ellis, two big bumps broke up grind of season
    PHOENIX — We might picture Mark Ellis' 2012 Dodgers season as a smooth road, with giant bumps at each end. The statistics mostly reflect the smooth part. The veteran second baseman, as reliable as your garage door opener, hit .258, with 62...

    Matt Kemp sets the tone for the Dodgers in more ways than one
    There are many accents in the rich and diverse Dodgers clubhouse this spring. There are a babel of twangs and tones from the Far East to western Australia, from the Dominican Republic to Defiance, Ohio. But, make no mistake, there is only one voice....

    From the archives: Plaque buildup
    Editor's note: This story ran on June 10, 2012. Paul Konerko's current stats (below) won't vastly change who the guy is after another season. Here's what our voters thought about his Cooperstown prospects when last we surveyed. .281 Average .360 On-...

    Vin Scully, pitch perfect for the Dodgers
    Oh, that voice! It comes out of the TV, it comes out of the radio, it comes out of the man sitting across from me in the cafe behind the press box at Dodger Stadium. Courtly and indefatigable, Vin Scully has been calling Dodger games since Harry Truman...
