Still bitter after all these years.

7/22, 5p: Brandon McCarthy (2-0, 1.69) vs Michael Wacha (5-7, 4.45). 7/23, 4:15p: Kenta Maeda (8-7, 3.25) vs Mike Leake (7-7, 4.00). 7/24, 5p: Scott Kazmir (8-3, 4.30) vs Tyler Lyons (2-0, 3.54). As the Giants and Cubs cool off from their red-hot starts, the Dodgers and Cardinals suddenly find themselves in spitting distance of first place in their respective divisions — the Dodgers 4 games back and the Cards 6.5 back. The Dodgers took two of three from the Cards at Dodger Stadium back in May. Ah, remember that Ross Stripling days of yore?

Another Nats series, another Dusty bobblehead. This one has the toothpick. (Or a weird melty popsicle. Hard to tell.) 7/19, 4p: Scott Kazmir (7-3, 4.52) vs. Reynaldo Lopez (0-0, -.--). 7/20, 4p: TBD vs. Gio Gonzalez (5-8, 4.70). 7/21, 9a: TBD vs. Stephen Strasburg (13-0, 2.51). Hyun-Jin Ryu is back on the DL with elbow tendonitis, so the Dodgers are starting a bunch of shrug emojis this series. One of them against Stephen Strasburg. What could go wrong?!

Seager's going to ruin his swing in the Home Run Derby, and he should have been traded for Cole Hamels anyway! Kershaw's injury is worse than reported and he's going to sign with the Rangers once his contract is up! This is Kenley's last year and the Giants are going to make him an offer he can't refuse! Enjoy the All-Star festivities, folks!

SOSG Todd - author of A Very Pleasant Good Evening - provided us the following requiem about his Sophie's Choice to miss a Dodger game that may have been scheduled specifically for him. Read on, SOSG-slingers. Greetings from the Northwoods of Wisconsin. I’m writing this little missive on my computer in a cozy, woods adjacent guesthouse that’s about half a mile from the nearest wifi signal. While I feel myself growing more Unabomber by the day, “going to town” to check email has helped stave off the effects of willingly spending three weeks without cable. Except...

After all, Starling Marte is the right choice for the 2016 MLB Final Vote, according to CBSSports.com's Dayn Perry. And we don't want anyone else winning, either.

I really don't have much for this ESPN.com Rumor Central piece, but I absolutely had to make the reference: The Los Angeles Dodgers have been "sniffing hard" on Chris Archer but so far have been rebuffed in their pursuit of the Tampa Bay Rays' right-hander, reports Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. Archer has a 4-11 record and a 4.50 ERA, but posted a combined 3.26 ERA the previous three seasons and was an All-Star in 2015. Though the last-place Rays could be willing to trade a starting pitcher, Archer might be the least likely candidate to leave because of his club-friendly contract,...

7/4, 6p: Julio Urias (1-2, 4.09) vs. Yovani Gallardo (3-1, 5.77). 7/5, 7p: Kenta Maeda (7-5, 2.82) vs. Chris Tillman (10-2, 3.71). 7/6, 12n: Bud Norris (4-7, 3.89) vs. Kevin Gausman (1-6, 3.97). Happy 4th! And 5th! And 6th! (These Series Threads are taking some getting used to.) The Dodgers are back on the schneid, looking for their third straight series win after taking two of three from the Brewers and sweeping the Rockies, going from eight to five games back of the Giants in the process. The first-place Orioles are a formidable opponent, even if they're not a natural one (Baltimore last...

At the "Legends" Game with the family DeShields. I refuse to call these players old timers cause that makes me Methuselah As the themes from All in the Family and Hill St Blues played some other notable SONS showed up...And even a ghost of SOSG past...My son excitedly shouted out "HE'S JEwISH" when Sandy Koufax appeared. But didn't have the same fervor for Shawn Green. After one inning Kenny Lotons hobbled defense turns an out into a double play, Nomar gunned Skip Schumacher down at third and Saxy grounded out with little fanfare. In a play that made me feel spry, Guerrero chased down...

7/1, 7p: Bud Norris (3-7, 4.22) vs. Jorge De La Rosa (5-4, 6.47). 7/2, 7p: Scott Kazmir (6-3, 4.67) vs. Chad Bettis (6-5, 5.84). 7/3, 1p: Julio Urias (1-2, 4.09) vs. Jon Gray (5-3, 4.83).

Well.... out with it. KERSHAW HEADS TO DL WITH BACK ISSUE.Kershaw received an epidural injection for pain relief, but the club did not release an injury diagnosis or explain whether the pain was caused by a disk issue or possible herniation.All back injuries are different, but teammate Scott Van Slyke missed nearly two months with a lower back injury and said he needed one month after receiving an epidural injection before he felt 100 percent.Roberts was asked the chances that Kershaw, with a four-day All-Star break included, would return after 15 days. The longer he is unable to throw, the...
