    Yasiel Puig Gets Arrested for Speeding While Wearing Pink Shorts (Video)

    Many of us were already aware of the fact that Los Angeles Dodgers super-rookie Yasiel Puig was arrested in Florida on December 28 after his white Mercedes-Benz was clocked going 110 mph down the I-75.  What we weren’t aware of, however, was the fact that Puig was wearing some funky-looking pink shorts at the time.

    This Day In Sports History (December 20th) — Hideo Nomo

    It was on this day in 2001 that starting pitcher Hideo Nomo signed a contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers.  The signing meant a return to the organization where Nomo’s Major League career began nearly seven years earlier. Hideo Nomo’s Major League career got off to a great start, as he had a very solid […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 10/16/2013 — Adrian Gonzalez

    With their backs against the wall and their season on the line, the Los Angeles Dodgers came out swinging against the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 5 of the NLCS.  And no Dodger was swinging harder than first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. Batting in the clean-up spot of the Dodgers’ line-up, Gonzalez was doing plenty of […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 10/14/2013 — Hyun-Jin Ryu

    With the St. Louis Cardinals owning a 2-0 lead in the NLCS, the Dodgers needed a solid performance from starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu in Game Three if they wanted to keep their hopes of playing in their first World Series since 1988 alive. Ryu would provide his team with exactly what they were looking for, […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/22/2013 — Clayton Kershaw

    Clayton Kershaw appears to be well on his way to earning the 2013 NL Cy Young award, and last night’s performance may have just solidified that status for the Dodgers’ lefty. Kershaw seemed to be up to his usual routine against the Marlins on Thursday, as he allowed just five hits and three walks while […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 7/8/2013 — Zack Greinke

    At one point in June, the Los Angeles Dodgers found themselves 11 games under .500. They have since closed that gap considerably, as they now sit just two games under .500 following Zack Greinke‘s light-out performance on the mound against the Arizona Diamondback last night. In search of his fourth consecutive victory, Greinke went seven […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 6/4/2013 — Yasiel Puig

    Yasiel Puig has been quite the revelation for the Los Angeles Dodgers.  Nearly one year after signing a seven-year/$42-million deal, the 22-year-old Cuban made his first start for the Dodgers on Monday, and he helped them secure the victory by doubling off the Padres’ Chris Denorfia at first with a frozen rope from deep right […]

  • Stat Line of the Night — 5/28/2013 — Hyun-Jin Ryu

    Stat Line of the Night — 5/28/2013 — Hyun-Jin Ryu

    During the offseason, the Los Angeles Dodgers spent over $25-million just to have the opportunity to negotiate a contract with Korean pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu, before eventually signing him to a 6-year, $36-million deal.  That may seem like a lot of money for an unproven player, but two months into the 2013 MLB season, Ryu is […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 4/28/2013 — Clayton Kershaw

    When Clayton Kershaw won the Cy Young award back in 2011, he put together a 21-5 record to go along with a 2.28 ERA.  He still has a long way to go if he hopes to replicate that success in 2013, but after yesterday’s performance against the Milwaukee Brewers, he appears to be well on […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 4/1/2013 — Clayton Kershaw

    Clayton Kershaw entered the 2013 MLB season as a favorite to win the National League Cy Young Award, but after his performance on Opening Day against the San Francisco Giants, he may have his sights set on NL MVP honors as well. The Dodgers’ ace was dominant on the mound against the defending World Series […]

    This Day In Sports History (October 19th) — Blue Monday

    It was on this day in 1981 that the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Montreal Expos 2-1 in Game 5 of the N.L.C.S.  With the win, the Dodgers advanced to the World Series where they would take on the New York Yankees. The 1981 baseball season was cut short due to a players strike, resulting […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/26/12 — Matt Kemp

    With top spot in the National League West officially out of reach, the Los Angeles Dodgers’ only chance of salvaging what was expected to be a successful 2012 season is for them to somehow squeak into a Wild Card spot.  They entered last night’s contest trailing the St. Louis Cardinals by 4.5 games for the second Wild Card spot […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/29/12 — Clayton Kershaw

    After winning the Cy Young award following the 2011 MLB season, Los Angeles Dodgers’ starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw has struggled to duplicate that level of success in 2012.  His 7-6 record and 3.14 ERA heading into yesterday’s action was a far cry from the 20-5 record and 2.28 ERA that helped earn him honors as […]
