Say A Prayer for The Remnants Of That 2014 Dodger Bullpen

Remember last year? When the Dodgers had “too many closers” and an overwhelming amount of veteran presence and all that, in what was the most expensive bullpen ever assembled? And then, for the most part, it was awful? The new front office cut most of those guys loose. For the ones who found a home…


Paul Maholm Has a Torn ACL

In completely unsurprising news: LHP Paul Maholm‘s MRI showed a tear of the ACL. He will see Dr. Neal ElAttrache and decide on treatment, including surgery. — Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) August 2, 2014 As soon as we saw the look on his face after going down last night, it seemed clear that this wasn’t…


Dodgers 1, Padres 0: A.J. Ellis, Walkoff Hero

I don’t want to take anything away from Paul Maholm, who was obviously incredible tonight. After two months in the bullpen, he was asked to make a spot start with Josh Beckett on the disabled list, and Maholm was… well, I’m not even sure how to say it. This is a guy who had been one…

Phillies 7, Dodgers 0: Future Dodger Cliff Lee Is The Best

I present to you a GIF: If, because of the quality, you can’t tell what Paul Maholm is saying, he was pretty clearly saying “just throw the effin’ ball over there” to himself after his fifth inning throwing error went over the head of Adrian Gonzalez and allowed the fifth Philadelphia run to score, but he really…


Fifth Starter Day: Good For Maholm, Less So For Beckett

Josh Beckett faced 14 batters tonight against Seattle. Seven reached base, and while that’s bad, look at it this way: only four stayed there! …because three (Jesus Montero, Stefen Romero, and Justin Smoak) crushed dingers and needed only to jog lightly around the bases. Extrapolated over a full season, that puts him on pace for…
