Careful now, don’t get too excited. Anyway, try to remember the date and the 47 games still to go and all the strange things that can yet happen.
Are you pulling it off? It can be tough after games like Friday's victory over the Tampa Bay Rays....

Skip Schumaker doesn’t look like a guy who would try to steal the spotlight. A guy who would photo bomb that nice picture of Hyun-Jin Ryu and Shin-Soo Choo’s big moment.
But there he was, playing only because Carl Crawford was sick, and...

In all the pandemonium of the Dodgers-Diamondbacks seventh-inning brawl Tuesday night, it was hard to tell exactly who landed a punch on whom. Lucky for us, there’s video replay (complete with Vin Scully live play-by-play: “No sense in calling...

It wasn’t perfect, but it was pretty close.
Zack Greinke, the Dodgers' $147-million man, threw a two-hit shutout, all while taking a perfect game into the fifth inning for the Dodgers' 17th win in 21 games.
Greinke (8-2) threw only 110 pitches,...

Yasiel Puig and his sore hand were out of the lineup Sunday, which sounds kind of scary but probably isn’t.
The Dodgers must think it’s a fairly minor injury, because before their game against the Cubs, they optioned outfielder Scott Van...

Seems it was a bad night for grit and fight.
Certainly Friday didn’t offer much for left-hander Chris Capuano, or for Dodgers news, unless you count another loss. Suppose you have to.
The Dodgers went ever so meekly against the Cardinals and...

This could get interesting.
The Dodgers open a three-game set against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix on Monday night, their first series meeting since engaging in an epic, benches-clearing brawl June 11.
In that game, Arizona starter Ian...

Injuries have been so frequent with the Dodgers this season and Manager Don Mattingly so incredibly wrong in his estimates of how long his wounded would be out, he just doesn’t want to play anymore.
Or he only wants to play.
Either way, it&...

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...

This time the Dodgers are not going to dance around with Matt Kemp and his hamstring issue. This time they wasted no time in placing him on the disabled list.
Kemp strained his right hamstring Wednesday night chasing down a Mike Trout hit in the gap and...

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,...

The Dodgers have bullpen problems and hitting with runners in scoring position problems and health in the rotation problems.
And one other little thing: They’re a lousy defensive team.
This defensive trouble might come as a surprise. All three...
