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!

The Dodgers have 10 losses this year so far.
Javy Guerra has 3 losses and 3 blown saves, blowing another one today.

There's a fugging MLB section with a Dodgers thread? How come nobody ever notified me?

Are any of you guys from LA or actual Dodger fans?

I'm not really a huge fan, but I don't hate them either. I love how Kemp is playing and what he brings to the game.

You can simply refer to them as "The Hated Ones".
Mattingly announces today the move to Kenley Jansen as closer. (About time)
Javy Guerra has earned his spot in the back of the pen.
Hope the Big Dodger in the sky smiles down on us.

Great to hear Jansen's finally getting the nod. Awesome game tonight I wish I would've made it down.

I don't know who is really better than Dodgers, but things can change a lot from now till playoff time. Washington, if they can get everyone back and healthy, and with that pitching staff, could make a run. Also, Braves have a good young team with some good pitching too. To me, those 3 teams are the best in the NL right now. St. Louis is close too.

I just can't think of two better players to have on your team than Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw.

Kershaw throws the Complete Game shutout tonight versus the Cardinals. Drops his ERA to under 2.

The Dodgers continue to roll despite Matt Kemp on the 15 Day DL for the tweaked hammy.

The Big Dodger in the Sky continues to smile down on Chavez Ravine now that the evil Frank McCourt has been purged form Blue Heaven on Earth.

What a game tonight, the Dodgers complete the sweep vs St. Louis.
Young [url="http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/9177"]Scott Van Slyke[/url] son of Andy provided the difference with a 3 run blast pinch hitting in the 7th.

Now 28-13 and the best record in baseball, man I hope the clock does not strike midnight on the 2012 MLB season.

A great game indeed!

I was 5 feet from Van Slyke's home run, I swear when they get a legit video of it I will point myself out.

Go Dodgers!
