Who is your favorite Dodgers player of ALL-TIME?

Over the next few weeks, we here at TrueBlue LA are going to be finding out who is the “All-Time Favorite Dodger”.

Earlier in the week, the Dodgers tweeted out a 64-player bracket with some of the greatest players in team history. So, I thought it would be fun to turn to Twitter and this website, and have the fans vote in polls to truly determine a winner. A few days ago we kicked things off with the first region, and...

Andrew Friedman: Dodgers Presently ‘Not Even Thinking About’ Throwing Programs For Pitchers During Coronavirus Break

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic forced many professional sports leagues to suspend operations for the foreseeable future. That includes Major League Baseball, who cancelled all remaining Spring Training games while indefinitely delaying the start of the regular season. Opening Day was originally scheduled to take place last Thursday, but the festivities were ultimately pushed back by a minimum of eight weeks from the advice of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Though...

Dodgers Video: Vin Scully Shares Positive Message To Help Fans Get Through Coronavirus Pandemic

There was a lot of optimism surrounding the Los Angeles Dodgers going into the 2020 season as they return a World Series-caliber team, and that was before the acquisitions of a former MVP in Mookie Betts and Cy Young Award winner in David Price. Unfortunately, the start of the 2020 season has been delayed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that is currently sweeping across nearly the entire world. The Dodgers would have hosted the San Francisco Giants for Opening Day on Thursday...

A Dodgers’ record 8th straight opening day start

Welcome back to our new series, taking a look at Clayton Kershaw’s 347 career games, one day at a time. We started things off last week with Kershaw’s only earlier appearance on the calendar, his March 22, 2014 start in Australia.

That brings us to March 29, 2018, the eighth consecutive opening day start for Kershaw. That moved him past Don Drysdale and Don Sutton for the most opening day starts in...

Bobblehead No. 8 — 30 Home Run Club

Worthpoint.com

An iconic photo

Resuming our countdown with a bobblehead that recreates one of the more famous photos in Dodgers history.

Back in 1977, the Dodgers had not one, not two, not three, but FOUR players who finished the season with at least 30 home runs. The four were Steve Garvey, Ron Cey, Dusty Baker and Reggie Smith. The Dodgers became the first team in MLB history to have four players on a roster hit at least 30 homers in a season.

Garvey finished the season with 33 home...

Clayton Kershaw has reservations about delayed World Series

Major League Baseball wants to play as many games as possible when it starts play after the coronavirus pandemic has subsided. That could push the World Series back quite late in the calendar year, and it may not be popular. Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw told “Lunchtime with Roggin and Rodney” on AM 570 LA Sports that he thinks a World Series in late November or December would be “iffy” and could negatively impact the 2021 season. “I think once you start getting into...

This Day In Dodgers History: Kiké Hernandez, Joc Pederson Lead Way In Setting Opening Day Home Run Record Against Diamondbacks

On March 28, 2019, the Los Angeles Dodgers began the season in emphatic fashion as they set an Opening Day record and tied a franchise all-time mark for any game with eight home runs against the Arizona Diamondbacks. They were led by two apiece from Kiké Hernandez and Joc Pederson. Austin Barnes, Corey Seager, Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy also contributed to the record-setting afternoon at Dodger Stadium. The home run barrage began with Pederson, who clubbed a two-run blast to center field...

On this date: Dodgers blast eight homers in Opening Day 2019 win

by Mark Langill The storyline was “eight” even before the Dodgers played host to the Arizona Diamondbacks in the season opener at Dodger Stadium on March 28, 2019. Left-hander Clayton Kershaw’s streak of eight consecutive Opening Day starts from 2011 to 2018 was snapped as he began the season on the 10-day injured list with shoulder inflammation, opening the door for Hyun-Jin Ryu to take his place. An absent ace on the pitcher’s mound wouldn’t matter for the Dodgers, who set a...

Dave Roberts Frequently Communicating With Dodgers Players, ‘Trying To Keep Them Positive’ Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

The ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has dramatically altered everyday life. In addition to schools and businesses closing down, the sports world has also taken a back seat for the time being. Major League Baseball not only cancelled the dozen or so remaining games on the Spring Training slate, but also indefinitely delayed the start of the 2020 regular season. Opening Day, which was expected to take place on Thursday, has been pushed back by a minimum of eight weeks. The earliest in...

2020 All-Star Game At Dodger Stadium To Potentially Be Cancelled To Allow For Longer Season

Major League Baseball is currently in uncharted territory as the start of the 2020 season has been delayed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Opening Day was supposed to take place on Thursday for the Los Angeles Dodgers and teams across the league, although that obviously did not happen as there is no telling when baseball will be played this year. MLB is in the process of determining how to get as close to a full season in as possible, and they recently came to an agreement with...

More details of the agreement between MLB and the players union.

Yesterday we talked about the service time and salary implications of the deal between Major League Baseball and the players union regarding the coronavirus shutdown, but another intriguing aspect is just how to concoct a 2020 schedule if in fact there is a season.

We know the earliest possible baseball could start up again is mid-May, and that...

This Day In Dodgers History: Frank McCourt Agrees To Sell To Guggenheim Baseball Management For Record $2 Billion

On March 27, 2012, embattled owner Frank McCourt agreed to sell the Los Angeles Dodgers franchise to Guggenheim Baseball Management for a record $2 billion. It ended a months-log process as it was in November of 2011 that McCourt signed off on selling the team, Dodger Stadium and the surrounding real estate. The sale price shattered the $1.47 billion Malcolm Glazer paid for English soccer team, Manchester United, in 2005. While a deal was in place, it required final confirmation in a court...
