Strategy in the game of baseball has always evolved. As it pertains to pitcher usage, that evolution has been particularly swift over the last few decades.

Bullpens have become more specialized and diverse...

Cardinals 6, Dodgers 1: A wild Rich Hill appears

Rich Hill couldn’t command either his fastball or curve, which was a problem since he only has a fastball and curve. Hill surely wasn’t helped by a bizarre strike zone where the umpire seemingly couldn’t get a handle on how to deal with his curve, but for the most part it was Hill who didn’t …

A First-Quarter Progress Report for the Oklahoma City Dodgers

While we typically take a concise look at a handful of standout Dodgers prospects on a weekly basis, we very rarely check the progress of one of the affiliate squads as a whole. Yet, as it’s a bit difficult to size up the growth of the Triple-A Oklahoma City club with all the very frequent roster fluctuation, we thought it be interesting to check on the team just past the quarter...

Cody Bellinger Was Built to Be This Way

The first time I met Dodgers slugger Cody Bellinger, we didn’t have a lot of time, so I just shook his hand and said that I’d seen him enough to think “you swing really hard, every time, don’t you?” He smiled. “Always been this way.” And that part remained true when we reconnected. But he also opened my eyes to the parts of his game that were molded along the way. ...

Vin Scully pays tribute to Dodgers’ Spanish voice Jaime Jarrin and his remote broadcasting
