Dodgers 10, Athletics 7: Gutless, Cowardly Team Somehow Rallies Late Yet Again

The Dodgers are a gutless, pathetic team that does things like rollover and get shutout against crappy pitchers like Sonny Gray, so imagine the shock when they came back yet again today to beat the Athletics 10-7 and earn a series split. The offense collected 12 hits and four walks, and they started in the first with an Andre Ethier RBI single for an early lead. A Yasiel Puig...

The Dodgers Are Dominating In Pairs

When somebody hears the word "Dodgers," the first names that come to mind are Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke, for a number of valid reasons. It's not often that a team has both of the top pitchers over the last 30 games, with respective ERA's of 0.45 and 0.00; it's nearly impossible to pitch any better. While Kershaw and Greinke have been the most dominating pair (more on them...

Tough decision await the Giants at the trade deadline

It’s an odd year, which means the San Francisco Giants really shouldn’t bother trying to add anything at the trade deadline since there’s no point.
