Articles by Daniel Brim

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.

Pedro Baez is Quietly Breaking Out

Towards the end of last season, I wrote a post on Pedro Baez after his late-season call-up. Baez had looked impressive in high-leverage situations, generating six shutdowns (+6% win probability added in a game) while having no meltdowns (-6% win probability added). J.P. Howell was starting to falter, so the Dodgers had gone from two…

Dodgers 8, Reds 3: Dingers!

On hot days, like today, Dodger Stadium is completely different than the pitchers’ park that we’re used to. While the absence of the marine layer isn’t quite as drastic as the change at Wrigley Field based on wind direction, it’s still pretty dramatic. The Dodgers used that to their advantage today, hitting a bunch of…

Pirates 13, Dodgers 6: Tire Fire

Tonight’s game is/was important, and we’ll get to that in a second (even if you don’t want to), but first… In the top of the fifth inning, Howie Kendrick led off with an infield single, just beating out a throw after Mike Morse was slow to field his grounder. Passing the bag, Kendrick hopped and grabbed…

Alex Wood’s Disappearing Strikeouts

After the 2014 season, Alex Wood was one of the most exciting young pitchers in the game. Before turning 24, he turned in a season that was worth nearly 3 fWAR and 4 RA9-WAR, pitching 172 innings of 77 ERA- and 88 FIP- baseball as a starter and a reliever. His 2013 debut saw similar…

Dodgers 5, Mike Trout 3: Greinke Rolls Again

Another Zack Greinke start, another dominating performance, and another Dodger win. This time, he (mostly) shut down the Angels, leading to a final score of 5-3. The only damage against Greinke was caused by him playing with fire. The first three times he faced Kole Calhoun, he gave up three singles. Kole Calhoun was hitting…

Mets 3, Dodgers 2: deGrom Astounds, Mattingly Confounds

This game began with headlines of scoreless streaks, an amazing pitcher’s duel between the league’s top two pitchers in ERA, and hair. However, that’s not how it ended, as the Dodgers fell to the Mets 3-2 in 10 innings. Before getting to the game’s endlessly frustrating ending, let’s start with Zack Greinke. He entered the…
