    Steven Lieberman, Observer Reporter|Aug 25, 2022

    Los Angeles right-handed pitcher Dustin May made his first highly-anticipated start on Saturday night, his first appearance in a Major League game since May 2, 2021 at Milwaukee when he suffered a season-ending elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery.

  • Boo-birds are having a field day with Dodgers player Craig Kimbrel's performance

    Steven Lieberman, Observer Reporter|Jul 28, 2022

    Dodgers veteran closer Craig Kimbrel has been struggling handling ninth-inning save opportunities so far this season. Even with undesirable overall numbers this year - 4.82 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, three blown saves - manager Dave Roberts has no plans to remove Kimbrel from his role as closer. "Right now, I'm not even considering that," Roberts said. "I think he's earned that. Also, just given where our bullpen's at and who we have, to have the ability to deploy guys in different spots, I think has value...

  • Thompson has turned blue by rejoining the LA Dodgers, hopefully second time is a charm

    Steven Lieberman, Observer Reporter|Jun 23, 2022

    Trayce Thompson is back with the "Boys in Blue." With right-fielder Mookie Betts on the IL with a cracked rib, and out of the lineup for at least two weeks, the Dodgers added some outfield depth, announcing an agreement with the Tigers on a deal that sent 31-year-old Thompson to LA in exchange for cash considerations. Maybe the second time as a Dodger will be a charm for the right-handed hitting Thompson. His brother Klay just won the NBA championship with the Golden State Warriors and his Dad,...

    The Los Angeles Dodgers added outfielder Trayce Thompson to the active roster and placed left-handed pitcher Caleb Ferguson on the injured list with left forearm tendinitis.

  • The best is yet to come for the Dodgers

    Eric Lambkins II, Sports Reporter|Jun 9, 2022

    The Los Angeles Dodgers are still one of the best teams in baseball despite their recent slump. They have yet to play their best baseball. They currently have the second-best record in the National league and they are tied with Houston for the third best record in the majors. They boost a league leading run differential of +112 and their differential could be better if their pitching was not struggling. During their last homestand which ended last Sunday, June 5, against the Pittsburgh Pirates...

  • "Top Gun" Eddy Alvarez sped onto the field with all the firepower of the Dodgers team to challenge the Mets

    Steven Lieberman, Observer Reporter|Jun 9, 2022

    The Dodgers finished up the four-game series split with the Mets on Sunday at Dodger Stadium with an extra-innings 5-4 loss, but the highlight was the debut of Eddy Alvarez at third base. He got two hits with four at bats and one RBI. But that RBI was a crucial one off of Mets pitcher Seth Lugo, a ripping first-pitch fastball, two-out single up the middle, plating Chris Taylor to tie the game at 4 in the bottom of the 9th inning, sending the game into extra innings. Alvarez also had a golden...

They currently have a record of 25-12. They are in first place just ahead of the San Diego Padres and the San Francisco Giants in the National League West. They will start their road trip against...

  • "Fre-ddie!" Freeman is turning blue

    Steven Lieberman, Observer Reporter|Apr 28, 2022

    The Dodgers rejoiced when they discovered that the Braves picked up first baseman Matt Olson during the offseason, because they knew that Freddie Freeman would become available. And that's what happened. The Dodgers made an offer and the veteran accepted. Braves loss, Dodgers gain. Freeman, 32-years-old, had a desire to stay with the Braves for his whole career. Last year, after winning the World Series and 12 seasons with the Braves, he entered free agency after a stalemate on contract...

  • Loss to the Bulls highlights Lakers issues

    Eric Lambkins II|Nov 25, 2021

    Last Monday, a cascade of chanting rang down from the upper bowl of Staples Center. After chiding the referee for allowing gameplay to resume before he put on the shoe he lost, Anthony Davis picked up his second technical foul and was tossed from the game. Fans were upset at the referees, but fans should have been upset at the Lakers, not the refs. After the 121-103 drubbing from the Chicago Bulls, it begs to ask who these Lakers are and what is their identity? But who are the Lakers, if...

  • Dodger and all-star closer Jansen fail to meet fans expectations with multiple losses

    Steven Lieberman, Sports Reporter|Jul 29, 2021

    Is it good or bad that Dodgers fans have extremely high expectations of how their team and players perform on the field? Seemingly demanding perfection every game. On the one hand, they invest their time and money into the team and have every right to desire that it pays them dividends in the form of team wins and successful individual player performance. On the other side of the coin, one has to ask themselves, 'where do I draw the line between expectations of the team winning every game and ea...

  • Dodgers ActivateTony Gonsolin

    Jun 10, 2021

    The Los Angeles Dodgers activated right-handed pitcher Tony Gonsolin from the 60-day injured list and placed infielder/outfielder Yoshi Tsutsugo on the 10-day injured list with a right calf strain. In order to make room on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers transferred Scott Alexander to the 60-day injured list. Gonsolin, 26, missed 60 games with right shoulder inflammation. He made three rehab starts for the Oklahoma City Dodgers, allowing four runs on six hits in 10.1 innings. He struck out nine and allowed three walks. Last season, he went 2-2...

  • Former teammates face off in LA for a three-game series

    Steven Lieberman, Observer Reporter|Jun 10, 2021

    The Cardinals came to Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers in a three-game series, always a much-anticipated rivalry felt by both the teams and their fans. A rivalry that has developed over the years into a playoff-type atmosphere. The Dodgers took two out of the three games, but another bright spot was the reunion of two veterans and former teammates, Cardinals catcher Yadi Molina and newly-acquired Dodger first-baseman Albert Pujols. Their first reunion since Pujols donned a Dodger uniform....
