  • Dodgers lead National League with five Gold Glove nominees

    Dodgers lead National League with five Gold Glove nominees
    Maybe you didn’t think of the Dodgers as some great defensive team last season. Solid, maybe, but great? The Dodgers committed 109 errors, and only the Milwaukee Brewers (corrected) finished with more in the National League. Individually,...

    Dodgers' season ends in 9-0 loss to Cardinals in Game 6 of NLCS

  • Dodgers got something huge early that's easy to overlook

    Dodgers got something huge early that's easy to overlook
    Sometimes it happens so early in a game that you tend to forget about it, or at least overlook it. The Dodgers rallied with four home runs to win Game 5 of the National League Championship Series on Wednesday, every blow big. They staved off...

  • Are Dodgers really counting on Alex Guerrero to start at second?

    Are Dodgers really counting on Alex Guerrero to start at second?
    It’s the first of November, and how does your team shape up for 2014? Never too early to get overly excited, raise an eyebrow or, for some, to flat-out panic. The Dodgers are in better shape than most heading into the off-season, or at least the...
  • Daily Dodger in Review: Mark Ellis has been everything you expected

  • Does losing Masahiro Tanaka mean Dodgers reached financial limit?

    And then a bullet did not bounce off the chest. The baseball world did not fall to its feet. Shock and awe and resignation were notably absent. The Dodgers lost Wednesday, lost in a realm they had fairly dominated since new ownership took up residence...
  • Dodgers keep it going, come back to edge Padres, 2-1

    Dodgers keep it going, come back to edge Padres, 2-1
    The Dodgers have won in a lot of different ways this season, but they haven't specialized in come-from-behind victories. Before Saturday night, they were 5-38 when trailing after six innings. And there they were in the bottom of the seventh inning,...
  • There's no one formula as Dodgers weigh how best to use final days

    There's no one formula as Dodgers weigh how best to use final days
    Hmm, what to do, what to do? I would love to tell you exactly what the right thing is for Manager Don Mattingly to do over the season’s final eight games, but I don’t know. Neither do you nor Mattingly nor anyone else on this planet. It&...
  • Dodgers' offense remains in hiding, Cards win 1-0 on unearned run

    Dodgers' offense remains in hiding, Cards win 1-0 on unearned run
    It should be clear to the Dodgers by now, the only way they win a game in the National League Championship Series is if their starter throws a shutout. After Zack Greinke struck out 10 and gave up only two runs in eight innings in the opener and lost,...
  • It all feels wrong in the Dodgers' 3-2 loss to the Cubs

    It all feels wrong in the Dodgers' 3-2 loss to the Cubs
    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...
  • Dodgers roll a lucky number in whipping Braves, 13-6, in Game 3

    Dodgers roll a lucky number in whipping Braves, 13-6,  in Game 3
    The game looked like it wanted to go in dozen different directions all at once, squirming and squealing all over the place, unable to lay claim to anything but a wild ride. And then the Dodgers suddenly seem to say enough, that they had other things...
