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…

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…

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…

So Much Good News. Too Much Good News?

This right here, this is good news: The Dodgers will start Hyun-jin Ryu in their domestic regular season opener on Sunday night against the Padres at Petco Park. The southpaw cracked his right big toenail while running the bases on Sunday in Sydney (Saturday night in Los Angeles), but has been cleared by the team medical staff to return to the…
