Game 23 Thread: May 2 vs. D'backs, 7p

Scott Baker (0-1, 3.86) vs. Jeremy Hellickson (1-3, 5.24). Joc Jam Fever! Have you caught it yet? Although the Dodgers are going with another spot-starter in Baker, the real reason to be excited about this year's team is Joc "Matt Who?" Pederson. Watching (Gamedaying?) this kid hit grand slams and make diving catches like he does, I'm beginning to see why the front office was comfortable with trading Matt Kemp for a handful of beans (sorry, Grandal). Of course, it helps that the Dodgers are quite unexpectedly leading the majors in home runs; twelve different Dodgers have hit homers so far...

Game 12 Preview: 04/18 Padres @ Cubs

The Padres began their road trip with an exciting win over the Cubs that involved not one, but TWO comebacks, and included homers from two different Wil(l)s. As many noted, it was a refreshing and new feeling to be able to still believe comebacks were possible after going down by more than a run, and to be able to rely on offense to back their pitchers when they aren't perfect. Others also pointed out how nice it was that, despite getting no offense from Derek Norris, Matt Kemp, OR Justin Upton, the team still put up five runs. Eleven games into the season and it feels like we can...

Game 2 Preview: 04/07 Padres @ Dodgers

Yesterday we had a baseball game. And today we have a baseball game, too! Opening Day didn't go quite as planned, but it was still so wonderful watching our team play a game that matters yesterday, and it's wonderful to be able to do so again today. In game 1, the Padres went toe-to-toe with the reigning MVP and Cy Young Award Winner Clayton Kershaw, and they came up with three runs (all driven in by former Dodger Matt Kemp) to back their starter James Shields. Today they'll look to Tyson Ross to help lead them to victory as they face Zack Greinke... weather permitting. Ross had a...

LOS ANGELES – For the first time, Matt Kemp strolled to the batter’s box at Dodger Stadium from the first-base side Monday. For what might be the last time, he was cheered. The sellout opening day crowd provided their departed star a sizable...
