Los Angeles Dodgers

[Ed. Note: Better late than never, we always say at PH8...] The National League West might be the MLB division most up for grabs in 2010. The three teams at the top all have question marks in their own right, and it’s likely that whichever can cover its warts best will wind up in the [...]

NLDS St. Louis Cardinals (90-67) versus Los Angeles Dodgers (93-65) NLDS Colorado Rockies (89-68) versus Philadelphia Phillies (91-66) —– Look familiar?  Yeah, me too. Nothing has changed since Tuesday, except these teams won and lost some games respectively. Colorado has effectively clinched the NL Wild Card (Matt Diaz says you’re welcome!), and the Dodgers have [...]

NLDS St. Louis Cardinals (90-66) versus Los Angeles Dodgers (93-64) NLDS Colorado Rockies (88-68) versus Philadelphia Phillies (90-66) —– The Phillies and Dodgers continue to play similar to the Cards, that is, relatively poorly compared to their prior months.  Philly is 4-6 in their last ten, with the Cards and Dodgers both 5-5. Philadelphia would [...]

In another game that many would argue the 2008 Cardinals didn’t have a chance in, the 2009 Redbirds emerge victorious to win another series against the Dodgers, their fifth win this season in the seventh and final regular season matchup with the NL West leaders. Notes Adam Wainwright was brilliant early, then seemed as if [...]

Well, classic metrics tell us it is so. The [...]

Let’s see if I can remember who I picked to win divisions in the previous posts… AL Playoffs Cleveland Indians over New York Yankees When Alex Rodriguez struggles upon his return from hip surgery, ultimately shutting it down in September, the window opens for the Evil Empire to go down. Tampa Bay Rays over Los [...]

Let’s round out the NL before jumping into the postseason. Los Angeles Dodgers – The return of Manny Ramirez pretty much sealed up this division for the Dodgers.  Clayton Kershaw has big-league experience on his resume now, and will confound NL West hitters with his nasty stuff.  Joe Torre must be cautious to keep his [...]

Today brought us some great posts across the Cardinal blogosphere, not so indirectly focused toward an article that appeared yesterday in the St Louis Post-Dispatch. I don’t have a lot to add to what Pip and C70 have already said regarding the venom being spewed toward Cardinal management, nor about the media’s involvement in provoking [...]

It’s smorgasboard time at PH8. We made another appearance (albeit brief, at the end of the show) on UCB Radio on Wednesday night.  Chet from 4thebirds did the hosting, and he did a wonderful job at that.  It’s a great listen, you can check it out in the little box at the top right up [...]
