Game 128 Thread: August 29 vs. Cubs, 6p

Cubs Team Photo Mat Latos (4-9, 4.81) vs. Jon Lester (8-9, 3.44) The rare dualing starting pitchers both of whom shirk traditional spellings of their first name matchup. Dodgers ride a four-game (4!) win streak coming into tonight's high-stakes clash with the Cubs. It will be an uphill battle given Latos' form of late, having been relegated to the bullpen (more of a place to sit and think about what he did than as someone who was actually called upon to come into the game in relief). But optimism prevails today fresh off the news that our beloved Vin Scully will return for his 67th season...

Vin to Return, but only for Next Year. Life Is Bad.

Vin to Return, but only for Next Year. Life Is Bad.

One More Year In his just-completed press conference, Vin strongly suggested that 2016 would be his last season on the mic. While we are overjoyed that he will be back next year, we are nonetheless saddened at the strong possibility - however ultimately anticipated - that this could be the end for his broadcasting career at the end of next season. Vin has given us everything, and more, and of course deserves to make his decision and have his legions of fans support that decision. But...the Dodger family still has a sad now. I'll be at the Yard tonight and will judge the mood. In the...

Game 127 Thread: August 28 vs. Cubs, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (10-6, 2.29) vs. Jason Hammel (7-45, 3.35). With Kershaw on the mound, immediately following his recent imploring of his teammates to play with greater urgency, I'm assuming we're going to get a pretty solid performance from our starter. The question is if our offense, without Howie Kendrick and potentially without Yasiel Puig and Adrian Gonzalez, can put up much resistance. If we can just mark Hammel early in the game, we might be able to send the Cubs (who have a better record than the Dodgers, even though they're in third place and 8.5 games out) to their third...

Post-Game 126 Thread: Red Sweep

Post-Game 126 Thread: Red Sweep

Red sweep, standing by DODGERS 1, REDS 0 The Dodgers scored the game's only run, when Yasmani Grandal had a bases-loaded GIDP in the second. Aside from that, Yasiel Puig re-injured his hamstring (Don Mattingly brought in Juan Nicasio to pinch-run, which is preferable to Nicasio entering the game any other way), Adrian Gonzalez injured his knee on a foul ball, and Zack Greinke pitched seven shutout innings. It is not clear whether Ron Roenicke had anything to do with either injury. The Cubs rolled over and played dead for the Giants, so the lead stays at 2.5 games. Let's get back home...

Dodgers Get A Little Too Excited After First Win In Cincy

Screenshots taken before Wednesday's victory. "Dodgers answer call"? "Bullpen...comes up clutch"? "Dodgers power up?" All this, after one 5-1 victory. Wow, these social media guys are hyperbolic.

Dilbeck Provides Giants With Locker-Room Material

Great. The LAT's Steve Dilbeck basically baits the arch-rivals up north, in "When will the Giants make a serious run at the Dodgers: Every time the Giants put a little streak together and act like they’re exercising those championship muscles, they go all atrophy and fall back again. The Dodgers lose five of six, the Giants lose five of six. It's a frustration contest. The Dodgers can only send out so many personal invitations. Nothing much has stood out about the Giants this season. They field well (.987), hit OK (.267, .406 slugging percentage), their starting pitching is OK (3.92...

Post-Game 125 Thread: Dodgers Again Limp To Victory Over Reds, Roenicke

Unconfirmed picture of Chase Utley's glove, after Ron Roenicke got to it before the game DODGERS 7, REDS 4 Thanks to an outpouring of three HR scoring five runs in the fourth inning (Scott Van Slyke solo shot; A.J. Ellis and Yasiel Puig with two-run HRs each) off of Reds starter David Holmberg, the Dodgers jumped out to a 6-0 lead and looked ready to have Dodger starter Brett Anderson coast to victory. Not so fast, said Dodgers third base coach Ron Roenicke. Unsubstantiated claims of his tampering with Chase Utley's glove (see above) led to a two-out fielding error in the seventh,...

Game 125 Thread: August 26 @ Reds, 4p

The allegedly evil Ron Roenicke, about to shoot Emperor-style lightning bolts at umpire Mark Ripperger Brett Anderson (7-8, 3.52) vs. David Holmberg (1-3, 6.57). When last these two pitchers squared off, 11 days ago, the Dodgers romped to victory and Holmberg lasted only two measley innings, giving up seven earned runs in the process. We've won rematch #1 this series, but don't think this one will go down so easy. This time, we've got Ron Roenicke on our coaching staff. Who knows what will happen.

Post-Game 124 Thread: Dodgers Win Game Despite Roenicke

DODGERS 5, REDS 1 Surprisingly, the Dodgers finally brought an end to their season-high five-game losing streak, but don't think that new coach Ron Roenicke didn't try his hardest to foil the Dodgers' winning plans. When the Dodgers opened up the game with back-to-back doubles (Yasiel Puig scoring Jimmy Rollins before the first out), Roenicke used his third base forces to make sure the next four batters couldn't advance Puig another 90 feet. For the rest of the entire game, Roenicke was able to hex spell the Dodgers away from third base, as the only time other Dodger players were allowed...

Wood Lamb. Alex Wood (8-8. 3.79) vs. John Lamb (0-1, 6.35). Cincy had a rookie Lamb, And we've lost five in a row. And everywhere on this road trip, Our bullpen sure did blow. These two guys met two two weeks ago, and it was good for the Dodgers (who won 5-3). Can Ron Roenicke keep his franchise-destroying streak alive after five? I don't think I have the stomach to watch.

Can The Dodgers Win Without A Bullpen? (No.)

I'm obviously not optimistic about the Dodgers' bullpen these days, and in Jonah Keri's second-to-last recap of the major leagues on Grantland's "The 30", he doesn't leave much room for hope: So, the underlying numbers do provide some reason to hope, but given last year’s playoff meltdown, the awful season-to-date run-prevention numbers, and the disaster over the past month, you can’t fault Dodgers fans for not feeling too hot about the current relief situation. [...] However, the biggest complaint from many fans isn’t necessarily directed at Mattingly, or even at the team’s...

Game 122 Thread: Aug. 22 @ Astros, 4p

Zack Greinke (13-2, 1.58) vs. Scott Kazmir (6-8, 2.43) Behind Greinke, who is riding an 11-start unbeaten streak, the Dodgers look to rebound from a complete shitstorm of an outing yesterday against the Astros where NO ONE* GOT A GOD DAMN HIT. Thus, we're all a little salty with a strong chance of having hangovers. And that nasty taste of a shit sandwich in our mouths. I'm anxious to wash away the bad taste with a nice IPA and another excellent Greinke outing! Roenicke Watch: 0-3 *On the Dodgers
