Buster Olney Marvels At Kershaw

From ESPN insider (link for subscribers only), Buster Olney opined on how incredible our own Clayton Kershaw is: We are witnessing the eighth consecutive season in which Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw has an ERA below 3.00, and Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis mentioned in conversation Saturday that Kershaw has been so good for so long that you grow accustomed to his excellence. But what Kershaw is doing this season might be a case of the best pitcher of all time doing his best work, particularly in how he controls the ball-strike count. Kershaw, who is set to start against the...

Familia struggles for second straight outing against Dodgers

New York Mets closer Jeurys Familia struggled against the Los Angeles Dodgers for the second straight outing, giving up two runs in the top of the ninth inning in a non-save situation as the Mets lost the final game of a three-game series, 4-2, Sunday at Citi Field.

Utley Be His Name

A few times a year, Delino faces a dark Civil War within himself. Mets vs. Dodgers. Team of my Youth vs. Team of My Adulthood. And this is personified by one (in my best Alan Rickman voice) Person. Chase. UTLEY. Long before he was in Dodgers blue, he applied dagger after dagger into the hearts of Mets sufferers everywhere. As a Dodgers fan, I wish he showed half the moxie reserved for the Mets against ANY OTHER TEAM. As a Mets fan, I wish him every form of groin injury one can imagine. As if "THE SLIDE" wasn't enough. Or his very presence causing Thor to let loose his mighty hammer. ...

Game 51 Thread: May 29 @ Mets, 5p

Chase Utley. He's a smooth son of a bitch, ain't he?Clayton Kershaw (7-1, 1.48) vs Bartolo Colon (4-3, 3.44). Last time these two pitchers met, things fell our way. In that game, Chase Utley went 3 for 4 with a home run. Yesterday, Chase Utley hit two home runs, including a grand slam. Conclusion: Chase Utley will be in the lineup today. ANALYSIS

For the Record

Thanks to SoSG reader Orlando Zepeda from the on-the-spot reporting from tonight's game at Citi Field. He writes: Great game! Wore the Drysdale jersey to the game, which ended up being appropriate.Way to represent, Orlando!

Game 50 Thread: May28 @ Mets, 4p

Kenta Maeda (3-3, 3.29) vs. Noah Syndergaard (5-2,1.94). Well after that heartbreaking loss last night, we send out King Kenta who faces another one of those long haired (hippie) Met pitchers. Last time out, Maeda was cruising until the 5th inning. Here's to hoping he lasts longer. Also, of note, it looks like Puig is sitting this one out, with the kids in the outfield (and "Dad" patrolling left in Hendrick). Think we can get back to the winning side tonight and take a bite out of the big apple? Let's go blue!

JULIO URIAS (0-0, -.--) vs. Jaacob deGrom (3-1, 3.07). Triceps experiencing some soreness? Send in Julio Urias, who will make his major league debut at the ripe old age of 19 tonight at Citi Field. Urias, the #2 prospect in baseball (behind the Nationals' Lucas Giolito), has some great scouting reports: The best left-handed pitching prospect in the game, Urias possesses plus or better stuff across the board. He can throw his lively fastball, which parks at 91-94 mph and reaches 97, for strikes on both sides of the plate. There's also some deception with Urias' heater, and opponents can't...

Behold The Age Of Urias

Julio Urias will be 1st 19-year-old phenom to pitch for @Dodgers since another LHP from Mexico: Fernando Valenzuela. pic.twitter.com/DP6qxjM4Rh— MLB (@MLB) May 26, 2016 Urias has been on fire in triple A ball this season, with a 1.10 ERA over 41 innings, and more strikeouts (44) than baserunners (24 hits, eight walks, one HBP). Alex Wood is scratched with triceps soreness, so Citi Field becomes the debut park for Julio Urias. Congrats, Julio!

Post-Game 48 Thread: Red Sweep!

DODGERS 3, REDS 1 I know it's not a big deal--the Reds have been swept in all three of their last series, going a combined 0-10 over that stretch--but for the Dodgers, we'll take it. Scott Kazmir gave up only four hits and 1 ER over 6.0 IP; Dave Roberts made some logical bullpen choices (i.e., not Chris Hatcher) in summoning Louis Coleman, Pedro Baez, and Kenley Jansen, each of whom had 1-2-3 innings; and the Dodgers got the win and the series sweep. Joc Pederson was the hero tonight, with a two-out bases-loaded single to turn a 1-0 Cincinnati lead into a 2-1 Dodgers lead. Yasmani Grandal...

Game 48 Thread: May 25 vs. Reds, 7p

“But the mean reds are horrible. You're afraid and you sweat like hell, but you don't know what you're afraid of. Except something bad is going to happen, only you don't know what that is.” Scott Kazmir (3-3, 5.23) vs. Dan Straily (2-1, 2.85). So said Truman Capote in "Breakfast at Tiffany's". Look, it's hard to be afraid of a 15-31 team, and the Dodgers certainly have been out to a good start in this series against the Reds (taking the first two games). But tonight, we throw Kazmir, whose last start (against the Padres) was so pathetic, even Kenley Jansen couldn't come in to salvage...

Post-Game 47 Thread: Dodgers On Verge Of Unlikely Sweep (Of Last Place Team)

Don't break open the bag just yet! DODGERS 8, REDS 2 The Dodgers are on the verge of sweeping their first series since the season opener in San Diego, from April 4-6. Mike Bolsinger led the way from the mound, pitching 5.2 innings of 3 H, 2 ER ball, and the bullpen didn't give up a hit the rest of the way. On the offensive side of the ledger, we were buoyed by opportunistic base stealing from Joc Pederson (stole third in the fourth inning after doubling in a run, and scored on the errant throw that sailed to left field) and Yasiel Puig (who was off and running for third base when Howie...

Bolsinger, in his pre-game warmups Mike Bolsinger (0-1, 6.23) vs. Daniel Wright (0-0, -.--). Mike Bolsinger may have found positives in his last start, his season debut, but I think the noteworthy thing from his last start was that the Angels found their way with Bolsinger, who yielded seven hits and three earned runs in a short 4.1 inning stint. Which the Dodgers lost, 8-1. Luckily for the Dodgers, the second-worst team in the NL happens to also be sending an unproven lamb into the slaughter (if the Dodgers' woeful offense had a shred of potency), with Daniel Wright from AAA-Louisville...

Post-Game 46 Thread: Dodgers Beat Sorry 15-30 Team Without Having 1 RBI

DODGERS 1, REDS 0 Seriously? 1-for-7 with RISP, and the only way we can score a run is a GIDP (one of our four GIDPs this evening)? Howie Kendrick got the GW GIDP. And aside from Clayton Kershaw's CG SHO (which we needed for the win; however Kershaw only notched 7 Ks, thereby breaking his streak of six straight games with 10+ Ks), there wasn't much else for which to cheer this game. Pathetic.

Game 46 Thread: May 23 vs. Reds, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (6-1, 1.67) vs. Brandon Finnegan (1-2, 4.44). riverrun, past Eve and Adam's, from swerve of shore to bend of bay, brings us by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to Howth Castle and Environs. Today's game should have had a rested Kershaw, except Kershaw was pressed into service as a pinch hitter in yesterday's marathon against the Padres (Kershaw grounded into a forceout, advanced to second on defensive indifference but was stranded there). Kid K has won his last four stsrts, and has struck out 10+ in his last six starts, so let's hope that quick effort Sunday didn't...

Post-Game 45 Thread: Dodgers Sack Up And Win Game; SoSG Ends GT Boycott

Your browser does not support iframes. Alex Wood shows what 16 innings does to a man. DODGERS 9, PADRES 5 (17) After rolling over and laying dead for four straight games (both games at Angel Stadium; then the first two games of this San Diego series, both of which were walkoff losses), the Dodgers went out and actually won a major league baseball game! Never mind it's against the 19-26 Padres: it's a win. Yasiel Puig was the catalyst after a two-run RBI single in the 17th, followed by a stolen base and then advancement to third on a wild pitch (that scored Joc Pederson, to make it 8-5...

Scott Kazmir (3-3, 4.89) vs. Christian Friedrich (0-1, 1.50). Kazmir is coming off his best start of the season, in which he went 8 2/3 innings against the Cardinals, who suck. Can he keep the momentum going at pitcher-friendly Petco Field against the Padres, who also suck? He's going to have to, since our bullpen sucks too. Here's to a sucktacular game!

Game 42 Thread: May 19 @ Angels, 7p

Ross Stripling (1-2, 4.26) vs. Jhoulys Chacin (0-0, 2.57). It's the battle of the teams desperate for starting pitching! Stripling got off to a hot start for the Dodgers but has since regressed to serviceable, while the Angels picked up Chacin after half their staff landed on the DL. Does this mean the bats will shine tonight? Or just the Angels' bats?
