Kershaw To DL As Pain From Playoff Berth Push Requires Epidural

The sixth inning of every home Clayton Kershaw start isn't going to be the same.  No longer will Angelenos be filing in as if it's the first, suddenly realizing that Kershaw is pitching, but now they will be stuck talking about everything but baseball for the entirety of the game and not simply 95% of it.  "Ma, can I keep score on the back of my headshot?"  "We're not here to...

Brock Stewart: A Dodgers Project Set to Debut

On rare occasion, I’ll interview a player and end up not writing about him — at least not right away — despite fully intending to. This happened with Brock Stewart, who will be making his major league debut with the Los Angeles Dodgers later tonight. Stewart was more of a project than a prospect when I talked to him last summer. A sixth-round pick in 2014 out of Illinois State...

At one point, in talking with them, I blurted out Jeff Francoeur as a player comp for Yasiel Puig. I hadn’t thought about it much, in the way I usually don...

Joe Blanton slams water cooler after HR

There seems to be some sort of correlation between struggling pitchers and water coolers. When their frustration boils over and they choose not to take it out on their teammates, they go after a water cooler.
