    Dodgers look pretty much the same, which isn't bad
    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Dodgers left baseball's winter meetings Thursday with almost the same team as last season. They didn't trade Matt Kemp. They didn't trade for David Price. They didn't sign Juan Uribe or anyone else who could start at...
  • Dodgers' Yasiel Puig hits go-ahead home run in 6-4 win over Marlins

    Clearly, Yasiel Puig is not going to do anything in typical fashion. Not his throws, not his baserunning and not being sent to the doghouse. Dramatics are the order of his day, every day. Puig was benched prior to Tuesday’s game with the Miami...

    Hanley Ramirez expected to start Wednesday; Andre Ethier scratched

  • Dodgers see it slip away in 13th, drop opener to Cardinals, 3-2

    Dodgers see it slip away in 13th, drop opener to Cardinals, 3-2
    It was taunt and tense. It was a sweaty, nervous little game. And ultimately, one extremely frustrating game for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers lost the opener of the National League Championship Series, 3-2 in 13 innings, on Friday night when...
  • It's always sunny in Los Angeles for the Dodgers

    They are "Ruthless People," these Dodgers. Nasty enough to "Throw Momma From The Train." So relentless you would think they were "Twins." Good enough, even, to provide one more starring role for Danny DeVito. It happened earlier this week at Chavez...
