Adrian Gonzalez provides perspective during tough stretch for Dodgers

After starting the season 12-7, the Dodgers lost their sixth consecutive game on Saturday to fall to one game below .500 at 12-13. Afterward, Adrian Gonzalez provided some much needed perspective during a tough stretch. During the losing streak, Los Angeles has scored more than two runs just twice with three being the high on two occasions. It’s not time to hit the panic button...

Roberts preaches patience amid Dodgers' struggles

Dave Roberts' words after the Dodgers' 5-2 loss to the Padres on Saturday night echoed what he had been saying all week. The Dodgers will not panic. They will not get angry. They will keep doing what they are doing, because they know it will eventually work. And he finished by saying he knows the players in the clubhouse thought the same thing.

It's not often that Clayton Kershaw starts opposite a left-hander who has strikeout stuff like his, but Drew Pomeranz could bring that matchup on Sunday afternoon as the Padres seek their first sweep at Dodger Stadium since April 2013.

Los Angeles Dodgers to See Lineup Changes

After 24 games, the Los Angeles Dodgers are 12-12, tied with the San Francisco Giants for first place in the NL West.  Given the Dodgers’ disappointing end to last season (and especially considering their historically large payroll), the slow start to 2016 is somewhat troubling. However, many of the Dodgers’ issues stem from their huge list of injuries.  The Dodgers opened...

Yasiel Puig replies to old Jared Goff rip on Twitter

Jared Goff admits since being drafted first overall by the Los Angeles Rams that he’s “gotten a lot of grief” for being a lifelong San Francisco Giants fan. But even Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig is apparently willing to let bygones be bygones and welcome Goff into the La La Land fold, even going so far as to forgive the Rams rookie quarterback for a critical tweet about...

Julio Urias’ time might come sooner rather than later

Julio Urias is making his fourth start for Oklahoma City today. He has fared pretty well in his first three starts, which isn’t surprising. With some Dodger starters struggling — Scott Kazmir (though, he was solid on Wednesday), Alex Wood and, to a lesser extent, Ross Stripling — Urias’ call to the majors might come earlier than expected. At least, maybe it should be considered...

Marlins 6, Dodgers 3: Kershaw’s 6th inning collapse sinks Dodgers

The Dodgers dropped the second game of the four-game series with the Marlins by a score of 6-3, and this is playing out a lot like the four-game series with the Giants earlier in the year, so maybe the Dodgers should just never play four-game series again. It is, of course, surprising to type those words because the starting pitcher tonight was Clayton Kershaw, but thanks to a fifth...

Kenta Maeda off to sensational start on mound for Dodgers

DENVER (AP) Kenta Maeda is pitching out of this world. No surprise to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who jokingly said the right-hander from Japan could effectively throw ''on the moon'' given his pinpoint control. Maeda just conquered the closest thing major league baseball has to a lunar start - Coors Field. In his latest masterpiece, Maeda took a no-hitter into the sixth inning...

WATCH: Yasiel Puig guns down Trevor Story

The timing of this is pretty incredible, because yesterday we had a post about the New York Yankees’ Aaron Hicks setting the record for fastest throw from the outfield ever recorded by Statcast at 105.5 mph. In that post, we had some videos showing off some other great arms and throws in baseball history. And my personal favorite throw from an outfielder has long been Jose Guillen...
