Dodgers 6, Reds 1: Josh Beckett Great Yet Again

Despite a two hour rain delay, the Dodgers and Reds got in a full game today. The Dodgers won by a score of 6-1 behind another great start by Josh Beckett. Josh only made it through six innings (though he was pulled after just 90 pitches), but he struck out seven batters and walked one, only…


White Sox 2, Dodgers 1: That Was Boring, I’m Bored Now

Leury Garcia is maybe 5-foot-7, had never hit a homer in 162 previous major league plate appearances, and he’d had only 13 in 2004 minor league plate appearances — I don’t know if any were inside the park, but since he had seasons of 51, 31, and 30 steals, I’m going to presume that at…


Dodgers 9, Mets 4: RIP Dodger Infield

For five innings, Josh Beckett was making it work. Oh, sure, Curtis Granderson scored in the second after a leadoff double and a few “productive outs,” and the fifth inning was frightening when Beckett loaded the bases with one out — he got Daniel Murphy to strike out and David Wright to ground out —…

The Resurgence of Josh Beckett’s Curveball

Despite significant worries entering the season, Josh Beckett has been outstanding so far. After allowing one run in 6-1/3 innings on Tuesday, he has a 2.38 ERA in 41-1/3 innings. After his tricky surgery last year, the Dodgers have to be thrilled with the results. That shiny ERA isn’t without warning signs, though. I could make…


Dodgers 7, Marlins 1: Josh Beckett is … good?

Remember in spring training when Josh Beckett (and his contract) was a burden on the Dodgers and he would surely be cut? Yeah, me either. He pitched the Dodgers to a 7-1 victory on Tuesday night. Beckett has been, arguably, the Dodgers’ second- or third-most consistent starting pitcher on the club this season. After a fantastic outing…


Giants 3, Dodgers 1: Just can’t beat them

For the fifth time in seven meetings the Giants, got the best of the Dodgers, downing them 3-1 on Thursday night in a frustrating game. The ending overshadowed a great outing by Josh Beckett,who went 6 2/3 innings, gave up one run on five hits, walked three and struck out four. His only mistake was…


Dodger Rotation Suddenly An Open Question

Last year, you may remember, the Dodgers used nine different starting pitchers in their first 23 games. Clayton Kershaw, Hyun-jin Ryu, Zack Greinke, and Josh Beckett were the original foursome, joined by Chad Billingsley the second time through. From there, it was something like a comedy of errors. Carlos Quentin broke Greinke, so Chris Capuano…
