The Dodgers tried valiantly to come from behind to win a 9th straight division crown but unfortunately came up a bit short. Even more unfortunate, it ended up costing the club a whole lot after losing Clayton Kershaw and Max Muncy to injury. After a quick second to exhale following the marathon season, we take a moment to look back at some frustrating instances and questionable lineups that ultimately cost LA the division. Moving i...

We're in the nitty-gritty of the home stretch now for the Dodgers. With 6 games each left for LA and the division leading Giants, there's a whole lot left on the line. However, as it stands the Dodgers are heading for their second Wild Card berth in franchise history. With that, we look at the valiant effort put forth by the boys in blue in the second half and call out the soft efforts out of the inter-division rivals in Sa...

The Dodgers take 2 of 3 in Cincinnati while learning that Cody Bellinger has a rib injury. Surprisingly, that isn't enough to put him on the bench or injured list. We discuss if the "let Cody play per his pain tolerance" idea is a smart play. Plus, a deep dive into the centerfield numbers of a returning AJ Pollock tells us that he's more than ready to be the starter in October. Next, Clayton Kershaw proves he's ...

The Dodgers get some help from the team down south and suddenly find themselves chasing the Giants in the NL West by only 1 game. Another LA sweep has the final weeks of the division race tighter than ever and has some looking ahead to a potential game 163 showdown between the Dodgers and the Giants. We chat with LA Times sports editor Houston Mitchell who shares his thoughts on the boys in blue and his hunch that the two best team...

The Dodgers sweep the San Diego Pobres and we have a great time with it. Meanwhile, Padres fans have gone into hiding. Still, we introduce a new segment just to highlight those great Slam Diego fans. With all that said, the Dodgers don't gain any ground on the apparently unstoppable Giants. With San Francisco now set to welcome the Padres to the bay for 4 games, LA fans awkwardly become San Diego fans for a week. Next we discus...

Things go off the rails early for Clint, Brook, and Doug. After another Dodgers loss in St. Louis, everyone quickly turned to questioning the lineup decisions of Dave Roberts after seeing the manager turn in a lineup card featuring Cody Bellinger, Steven Souza, Billy McKinney, and (the slugger of the group) Austin Barnes. Belli's season-plus-long slump continued with another 0-4 game and we discuss whether continuing to put him...

It was a wild week for the Dodgers. A sweep of the Padres was followed by a lackluster showing against the Rockies in LA. And all throughout the Rockies series, Dave Roberts kept piling up the interesting, head scratcher, or outright terrible moves.  The big focus is, of course, Justin Turner pitching in a 5-0 game, but you can't overlook the fact that the game on Sunday started with Mookie Betts, Justin Turner, and Will Smith ...

The Dodgers get the job done during a 6-1 homestand that not only pulled them closer to the top in the division race, but also helped answer some potential postseason questions, particularly in the bullpen. Mainly, it proved that Alex Vesia has mostly transitioned himself from a J.A.G. to a dude in the backend of the 'pen. Trea Turner has been an absolute difference maker for LA, proving that this team really does need that tru...

The Dodgers go 5-1 on the road trip but unearth some question marks... Should we start planning on life without Mookie Betts in 2021? What is Dave Robert's obsession with Billy McKinney? Will the defense fail at the worst possible time this season? Along the way, we discuss some of our theories involving Doc's relationship with Matt Beaty and wonder why it seriously seems like he's perpetually in the doghouse. Next...

The Dodgers begin a massive stretch of games by heading to Philly to face the red hot Phillies. But first, the is a whole bunch of roster housekeeping to account for. First, the revolving door of relievers brought two new pitchers into the fold for LA while injures clipped three. Plus, we witness the start of the Trea Turner era and absolutely love his ability as a game changer. Jimmy Nelson is out for the year after blowing out hi...

The cheating Astros came and went in Los Angeles, giving Dodgers fans their first opportunity to really show some love since the sign stealing scandal broke early in 2020. We look back at the series and discuss whether it's now finally time to start moving on or very much not. In more important Dodgers news, Max Scherzer absolutely shoved for 7 innings in his debut at Dodger Stadium. As much fun as that was, it also provided a ...
