Mets @ Dodgers July 3, 2015: So Long, Brandon League

Today’s biggest news is actually yesterday’s news, but with the holiday weekend we haven’t had a chance to write about it. Last night Brandon League, rehabbing from shoulder surgery, was designated for assignment. The move is a bit surprising for a few reasons. The first reason: League’s salary. The front office hasn’t shied away from…

2014 Dodgers In Review: RP Brandon League

Brandon League And Symmetry

One story we have been tracking for most of the season at Dodgers Digest is the resurgence of Brandon League. I wrote a story about him being actually useful in late May, which was a complete surprise at the time. Mike followed up in mid-July, and at that point he was still pretty good. Not…

Brandon League, Valuable Major League Reliever

One of the least-remembered parts of last night’s 1-0 win over San Diego is going to be that Brandon League got through the seventh inning on only seven pitches, keeping a scoreless game tied until the Dodgers could put a run on the board in the ninth. It’s the 32nd scoreless outing he’s had in…

Time To Step It Up, Dodger Bullpen

What’s the best way to evaluate a major league bullpen? There’s not really an obvious answer in the way that I would go to WAR or wRC+ for hitters, or FIP or xFIP for starting pitchers. It sure as hell isn’t wins, obviously. ERA really doesn’t work there, either, as we saw just a few…

Brandon League Is Good Now, Apparently

Brandon League has been one of the most unlikely success stories on the Dodgers this year. Not unlike Juan Uribe last year, he’s doing his best to make fans forget about previous terrible season(s) and a dubious contract. League has a 1.35 ERA and hasn’t given up an earned run since April 15th or any runs since May…

Giants 3, Dodgers 1: Brandon’d To Death

The Dodgers continued their frustrating stretch tonight, dropping the contest by a score of 3-1. The team has lost six of their last eight games and cannot seem to beat the Giants this year. Paul Maholm, tonight’s starter, continued to look very shaky. After hitting Brandon Belt with a pitch in the second inning (which…
