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.

Inside Zack Greinke’s Season-Saving Start

Last night’s game for the Dodgers was a must-win, and the Dodgers won. We’ll all remember J.P.
