Daniel Brim grew up in the Los Angeles area and remains a Dodger fan despite currently residing in Salem, MA. As an engineer, he’s fascinated by the math and science behind the game of baseball, which probably explains a lot. He started “Blog To The Score” in late 2013 to dig deeper into the numbers behind the Dodgers. In its brief lifespan, it gained attention from local and national media. You can find him spending too much time in the comments section or on Twitter.


Starting Pitcher Trade Targets, by Projections

The Dodgers need another starting pitcher. I know that, you know that, and Andrew Friedman (probably) knows that. Some of the big names (Hamels, Cueto) are obvious, but it might be interesting to look a bit deeper than that. One way to find potential under-the-radar trade targets is by projection systems. One way projection systems…

Dodgers 10, Giants 2: Finally, An Easy One

The Dodgers got to Tim Lincecum early and often tonight. Lincecum has been beating his peripherals all year and it finally caught up to…


Padres 2, Dodgers 1: Zack Greinke Out-pitched by Ian Kennedy

Tonight’s starting pitchers, Zack Greinke and Ian Kennedy can probably be considered rivals because of their history, and they pitched like it tonight. The Dodgers put a lot of balls…

Dodgers @ Padres June 13, 2015: Hit it to Third Base

Tonight’s pitching matchup, Zack Greinke vs Ian Kennedy, will obviously bring back memories. However, 2013 was a long time ago. Ian Kennedy has had an … interesting 2015 season so far. He’s actually close to or better than his career normal statistics in a few areas: K%, BB%, K%-BB%, GB%, xFIP- are all pretty good….


Dodgers 4, Padres 3: Strange Baseball

Baseball is strange. This 4-3 Dodger victory wasted no time in being unusual. In the bottom of the first inning, Justin Upton hit a line drive off of Clayton Kershaw‘s hip. According to StatCast, the ball was hit at 107mph. At least this one didn’t get any teeth, but it was enough to make everybody…
