Lots going on in Dodger land these days but Aaron Harang has just struck out 9 straight Padres through 3 innings to set an all time Dodger record. The Major League record is 10 straight by Tom "Terrific" Seaver.

Stay tuned.

Dodgers off to a tremendous start, although they handed the game for free yesterday with that triple play. Matt Kemp is a stud, absolutely locked in.

Wow, had to drop in and talk about Matt Kemp. Guy is playing like superman right now. 9 homers already, like a .474 avg over 20 rbi.... get out of here.

It was funny as hell to parallel the roid using bastard the East Coast bias gave the MVP last year to when the Dodgers were in Milwaukee a few days ago.

Braun .265 with a couple home runs.

Kemp .474, 9 home runs and 22 ribbies. And another Gold Glove no doubt.

27 will not be ripped off in 2012.

Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw looks to have another outstanding year again throwing 7 shutout innings today.

IMHO the 2 best young players in the Major Leagues today. Once new ownership fully takes over and spends some Philly type payroll money come the trade deadline and next offseason the Dodgers should really be a powerhouse again.

Meanwhile this 12-3 start is something else.

Go Blue!

Matt Kemp is seriously unreal. I can't wrap my head around just how dominant he has been so far. Having a Bonds type year. Yeah yeah yeah, it's still early and he will definitely regress, but still.

Damn shame the Nats game got postponed today(I'm a Nats fan not Dodgers), as it pushes Strasburg's start back a day. Now it will be Detwiler vs. Kershaw on Friday :( Stras and Kershaw will be competing for the CY Young every year for the next several years. Count it.

MLB's current best lefty vs. future best righty would have been a helluva battle.

Kershaw goes 8 solid innings for the W tonight, Matt Kemp adds 2 more hits to keep his average North of .450.

One potentially very big move for the Dodgers tonight. Young Flame Thrower Kenley Jansen got his 1st save of the year. Manager Don Mattingly handed the ball to Kenley after Javie Guerra blew his 2nd save of the season Wednesday night. Dodger fans still haven't recovered from the trauma of "Line Drive" Broxton's almost single handed destruction of past late Summer campaigns. Good luck 74!

*Sigh*

The Dodgers have 10 losses this year so far.

Javy Guerra has 3 losses and 3 blown saves, blowing another one today.
