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.


Yimi Garcia’s Hidden Regression

Yimi Garcia is an extremely interesting pitcher. As a result, we write about him a lot. Early last year, he looked like one of the very best relievers in baseball.

Is the Dodger Rotation too Left-Handed?

Even after the signing of Kenta Maeda, the Dodgers are projected to have an extremely left-handed starting rotation.

Dodgers @ Mets Oct. 12, 2015: NLDS Game 3

After all of that time, and the “will they won’t they” leading up to today’s game, is it really surprising that Chase Utley will be on the bench at the start of this ballgame (his appeal was not heard, so he’s available)? I mean, Howie Kendrick has been starting for a reason, like he is…


Yoenis Cespedes Beat Zack Greinke in an Amazing Way

Let’s talk about something other than The Slide. Instead, there’s other things from last night’s game worth reviewing. Sometimes, you just have to tip your cap. In the second inning of last night’s game, Yoenis Cespedes went deep on a 2-2 fastball from Zack Greinke. This is that home run: Your browser does not support iframes. At…
