Dodgers have plenty in reserve to beat Cubs

The Dodgers got production from the usual suspects of late on Saturday, relying on the utility men in beating the Cubs 5-0 behind Brandon McCarthy and friends at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers struck first in the fourth with a double by Kike Hernandez, tied for the team lead with 14 on the season. He then stole third and scored on a single by Chase Utley.

In the fifth, the Dodgers...

Trayce Thompson—Klay’s brother—let a walk-off home run bounce off his glove

What’s the worst possible thing that can happen to an outfielder in a given game? It very well might be what happened to minor-leaguer Trayce Thompson on Friday night in Albuquerque.With one out in the ninth inning of a tie game, an Albuquerque Isotopes player hit a deep fly ball toward Thompson in center field. Thompson back-pedaled up the odd hill in front of the fence, reached up to make the catch and… watched as the ball plopped off his glove and over the fence for a walk-off home...

Recently, Dustin wrote an article about why the Dodgers shouldn’t give up on Sergio Romo. I, person who pines for Romo to be DFA’d almost daily, have a different opinion on that. Oddly enough, I’m not sure I need to do all that much, as it’s the easy position to take, but that doesn’t mean …

Report: Dodgers have had ‘no serious talk’ about Ryan Braun trade

Ryan Braun is a name that has been linked to the Los Angeles Dodgers for nearly a year now, but it sounds like the team has never really been close to acquiring the slugger. According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Dodgers have had “no serious talk” about Braun since last year. And even last year, Heyman says a deal between L.A. and the Milwaukee Brewers “didn’t come as close to happening as it was portrayed.” Multiple reports at the start of the season claimed the Dodgers and...
