    Carl Crawford delivered a gut-punch to the Braves in the bottom of the second, sending a three-run home run over the fence in right field to put the Dodgers up 4-2, but starter Hyun-Jin Ryu and some sloppy defense allowed the Braves to quickly tie the game at four apiece in the top of the…

  3. Steve Lyons doesn’t want your filthy, rally-killing home runs

    Oct 5, 2013, 12:31 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Remember a while ago, some had the idea that having slow runners on base was a bad idea because they “clogged up the bases“? Even though having runners on base directly leads to scoring runs? It took a bit of work (and ridicule) to get that idea out of the zeitgeist. Now, thanks to Steve…

  4. Dodgers squandered plenty of opportunities against the Braves

    Oct 4, 2013, 9:45 PM EDT

    Division Series - Los Angeles Dodgers v Atlanta Braves - Game Two

    Despite making it close, the Dodgers had plenty of opportunities to score but came up empty plenty of times following Hanley Ramirez‘s RBI double in the first inning. They couldn’t get the big hit against Braves starter Mike Minor from the second through the sixth innings, nor relievers Luis Ayala or Luis Avilan in the…

    Oct 4, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Things went so well for the Dodgers last night that they decided to use the same lineup in Game 2 that they used in Game 1. Things went so poorly for the Braves last night that they decided to use the same lineup in Game 2 that they used in Game 1. Er, never mind.…

  6. Braves’ replacements flounder in Game 1 loss

    Oct 4, 2013, 12:16 AM EDT

    Elliot Johnson

    With Dan Uggla off the roster and B.J. Upton on the bench, the Braves were banking on lesser names helping their cause against the Dodgers. It didn’t work in Game 1, as both left fielder Evan Gattis and second baseman Elliot Johnson had key misplays in the 6-1 loss. Uggla and Upton are the Braves’…

    Clayton Kershaw struck out 12 batters over seven innings tonight at Turner Field as the Dodgers topped the Braves 6-1 in Game 1 of the NLDS.

    Adrian Gonzalez Getty

    Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw has a nice early cushion to work with in Game 1 of the NLDS. After Braves right-hander Kris Medlen gave up two runs in the top of the second inning, he served up a two-run homer to Adrian Gonzalez in the top of the third. Carl Crawford singled to lead off…

    Sep 30, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell surveys the field before his team takes on the Baltimore Orioles in an MLB American League baseball game in Baltimore

    We still have one game left that, technically and statistically speaking, belongs to the regular season. But practically speaking — and in our hearts — we are into the playoffs now. Game 163 between the Rays and Rangers is do-or-die and very, very few regular season games can say that. So: toss your technical orthodoxy.…

  12. Brandon Phillips names his All-Swag Team

    brandon phillips

    Jon Morosi of FOX Sports spoke with Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips, mostly about swag. Phillips says that baseball needs more of it, saying, “That’s exactly why African-Americans don’t play baseball. [There’s] no passion in the game. You’ve got to be like a robot. Look at basketball. Look at football. When you make an exciting…

  13. Who do you root for when your team is eliminated?

    Sep 27, 2013, 11:31 AM EDT

    Dodgers Fans

    I’m going to root for my Barves as long as they’re still playing. Nothing will stop that. Not silly unwritten rules enforcement, not dumb “choptober” hashtags on Twitter, nothing. They’re my team and you root for your team until they’re eliminated. That’s how sports works. Even when they annoy you, they’re your guys. But that…

  14. Great Moments in talk radio: talking team chemistry with some Boston yakkers

    Jonny Gomes

    I wrote that thing yesterday about how maybe, just maybe there is more going on to make Boston awesome this year than Jonny Gomes‘ beard. The radio folks in Boston didn’t like that very much. I was taken to task on some show last night and then, this morning, Dennis and Callahan of WEEI asked…

    The Roberto Clemente Award goes to the Major Leaguer who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.” Clayton Kershaw won it last year.  The 2013 nominees — one per team — were just announced and are listed below.

  16. The Red Sox beards are magical or something

    Jonny Gomes, Jackie Bradley Jr., Shane Victorino

    I’ve noticed the Red Sox’ beards for a while now. Haven’t said much about them because I was waiting to see if there was some higher purpose to them beyond team bonding and image-crafting. Maybe some charitable thing? Maybe solidarity with a friend or fan suffering from some illness? I don’t know. Stuff happens and…

  22. Dodgers hope to discuss extension with Hanley Ramirez this offseason

    Aug 24, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    Hanley Ramirez Getty

    While Yasiel Puig and the Dodgers’ pitching staff deserve a lot of credit for the team’s incredible turnaround, Hanley Ramirez has been the team’s best hitter when healthy this season, batting .348 with 13 home runs and a 1.025 OPS through 63 games. And the Dodgers are prepared to reward him. According to Dylan Hernandez…

    What if teams could not trade players or sign free agents? What if their roster was limited, for all time, to players they drafted and signed as amateurs and developed through the minors? What would that league look like? Domenic Lanza of It’s About the Money tries to figure that out, setting forth all home-grown…

    Cleveland Indians v Seattle Mariners

    Mariners 4, Indians 3: The M’s just keep on winning. That’s eight in a row, with this one ending interestingly. The Indians had runners on the corners with no one out in the ninth. Then Drew Stubbs got caught in a rundown he probably shouldn’t have gotten caught in between third and home, ending the…
