Early Thoughts on Dodgers Postseason Pitching Options

Two weeks from today ends the 2022 regular season. Two weeks left for the Los Angeles Dodgers to decide who will be on the postseason roster, work out any kinks, and, most importantly, stay healthy.

The Dodgers currently sit at 103 wins, three shy of their all time record. As we’ve mentioned before, that record is bound to fall.

Dodgers Roster: More Thoughts on Possible Playoff Rotation

Heading into Saturday’s games, the Los Angeles Dodgers have 19 contests remaining on the regular-season schedule. There’s still plenty of work to do as far as National League and World Series home field advantages go, and there’s still some sorting out to do regarding the roster.

Dodgers Clinch NL West Title

After a very blip where the Los Angeles Dodgers won 106 games but not the NL West last season, they are once again on top of their division, clinching early and in commanding fashion.

On Tuesday night, led by another stellar Clayton Kershaw outing, and with their magic number at one, the Dodgers defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-0 to win the NL West. With 20 games left, the Dodgers have a 20.5 game lead over the second place San Diego Padres.

What Lies Ahead for Cody Bellinger?

While we’ve seen moments of a possible resurgence of a 2019 Bellinger this year, it hasn’t come close to full circle, and fans are starting to become restless about the former MVP’s future.

If you’re ingrained in any Dodger social media space, you’ve probably seen the Jerry Hairston Jr. rant on Bellinger in the Sportsnet LA postgame. Hairston made some excellent points, and with the postseason coming soon, it raises the question of how Bellinger will be used.

Can Dodgers Eclipse All-Time MLB Win Record?

The teams with the two best records in the majors begin a series Tuesday night. The Los Angeles Dodgers, with the best record in baseball at 89-38, face off against the Mets 82-47 at Citi Field.

Early Thoughts on a 2022 Playoff Rotation

It’s almost September, as this season went by in a flash. The Dodgers hit their stride after the All-Star game break, establishing themselves as the top team in the majors.

They’ve had a stretch of 50 games in which they went 41-9. It’s pretty ridiculous how this team has spoiled us the past couple of years, and I can see why everyone else is envious.

Looking Back on the Dodgers 2021 Season with Bright Hope for 2022

Another year has come to a close, and with it memories of what has been tend to creep in. Even though it didn’t end the way Dodger fans wanted it to, it still was a very memorable year.

Aside from the 2020 season, which ended in a championship, this 2021 season will probably be the most memorable for awhile, with all its ups, down, and everything in between.

The 2021 Los Angeles Dodgers and Those Before Them: Teams to Be Remembered

All good things must come to an end, and as such this season, and this rendition of Dodger baseball, shall too.

We as Dodger fans have most likely seen the end of this amazing group of core, homegrown players who when augmented by stealth trades and big signings have made one of the best runs in modern history. Eight straight division titles, with the ninth just out of reach by one game, after winning 106 games. Three World Series appearances, and one Championship. But it still doesn’t feel like enough.

Dodgers Look to Even NLCS Against Braves

After a grueling five game series against the San Francisco Giants, and all the celebrations that happened afterwards, the Los Angeles Dodgers flew across the country to Atlanta to take on the Braves in Game 1 of the NLCS.

Dodgers Season Depends on Offense Showing Up in Game 5 of the NLDS

“We do our best with our backs up against the wall”.

Chris Taylor said this after the Game 3 loss, and the Los Angeles Dodgers showed up in Game 4, beating the San Francisco Giants 7-2 to force a Game 5. Can that same team show up in San Francisco, or will the offense not show up at all like it didn’t in Games 1 & 3, where the Dodgers were blanked both games?
