Dodgers’ unpredictable bullpen order is by design

The Dodgers were leading the Tampa Bay Rays 8-1 in the seventh inning when Dylan Floro entered Game 1 of the World Series. He only retired one of the three batters he faced, then gave the ball to left-hander Victor Gonzalez, who allowed both inherited runners to score. In Game 2, the Dodgers were trailing 1-0 when Floro relieved Tony Gonsolin in the second inning. This time, Floro was tasked with retiring a different trio than he saw the day before: Willy Adames, Kevin Kiermaier and Mike Zunino....

For the Dodgers, Charlie Morton is a familiar, forbidding face in the World Series

The manager, A.J. Hinch, brought the hook. The starter-turned-reliever, Charlie Morton, brought the sinker. The line was something that almost never happened at the expense of the 2017 Dodgers:  Four innings, two hits, one runs, seven strikeouts. Game 7 of that World Series ended with a first-pitch grounder by Corey Seager, and Morton celebrated with his Houston teammates, although a small part of him probably wanted to keep pitching. It should be noted that Morton brought no garage cans or surv...

Genies updates its software development kit and partners with Gucci, Giphy

Genies , has updated its software development kit and added Giphy and Gucci as new partners to enable their users to create personalized Genie avatars.

The Rays-Dodgers World Series is less impersonal than you think

When Stuart Sternberg retired from the investment firm Goldman Sachs in 2002, he cast his eye toward buying a Major League Baseball franchise. A Brooklyn native, Sternberg was born too late to watch a Dodgers game at Ebbets Field, but he named one of his sons after his favorite pitcher, Sandy Koufax. Koufax’s number 32 wound its way into his email address. Unsurprisingly, Sternberg looked into buying the Dodgers before the franchise was sold to Frank McCourt in 2004. The Tampa Bay Devil Rays wer...

Clayton Kershaw to start Game 1 for Dodgers in World Series

Clayton Kershaw will start Game 1 of the World Series for the Dodgers. Walker Buehler will start Game 3. Outside of that? “It’ll be kind of hard to figure out,” Manager Dave Roberts said. In other words, the Dodgers’ pitching plans are largely in keeping with the formula that got them through a seven-game National League Championship Series against the Atlanta Braves. Kershaw will take the ball on four days’ rest Tuesday against Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Tyler Glasnow. In his only NLCS start, ...

Trump ridicules Fauci for throwing 'the worst first pitch' in baseball history and urges him to stop wearing a Washington Nationals face mask

President Donald Trump throws a baseball on the South Lawn of the White House on July 23, 2020 in Washington, DC. Drew Angerer/Getty Images On Monday, President Donald Trump scorned Dr. Anthony Fauci's baseball skills and said the US' top infectious disease expert should stop wearing a Washington Nationals mask. "Tony threw out perhaps the worst first pitch in the history of Baseball!" Trump tweeted.  The comments came hours after Trump ranted against Fauci and called him a "disaster" on a...

No bread, no circuses: The Olympics and climate change

Global warming is making it difficult to organize sporting tournaments, but it's an even greater threat to small local clubs. Meanwhile, Big Sport is taking the lead in climate hypocrisy. This is a good time for last year's snow. Not long ago, this term was used to describe something that has no meaning, that doesn't concern us, that has no value. As the temperature has risen, the situation has changed. The 2014 Olympics in Sochi didn't happen on the freshest of snow, nor did countless World Cup...

‘Calico Joe’, John Grisham’s Baseball Novel, Being Turned Into a Movie By George Clooney (and Bob Dylan)

Stop me if you heard this one: Geroge Clooney, Jon Grisham, and Bob Dylan get together and say, “Let’s make a movie!” No, this isn’t the set-up of a joke. Instead, it’s news about a new movie. George Clooney is considering directing Calico Joe, a film adapted from the John Grisham novel of the same name. And Bob Dylan’s Grey Water Park Productions is set to produce. While Grisham is primarily known for his legal thrillers, Calico Joe is about a baseball player in the 1970s who ends up in a coma...

Horse trainer Barry Abrams remembered for being ‘full of life’

Major League Baseball is not the only sport that’s lost some of its greats in 2020. For every Al Kaline, Tom Seaver, Bob Gibson, Whitey Ford, Lou Brock and Joe Morgan that’s died this year, horse racing has lost the likes of Mel Stute, Gary Sherlock, Gary Jones and Barry Abrams. Abrams died Oct. 9 at 66 from throat cancer. He left his wife, Dyan, and two daughters. He was blessed to hang around long enough to witness the birth of his two grandchildren. “He adored his daughters, and I really beli...

Whicker: Lakers (and the NBA) were true to the man championship trophy honors

Those who believe the NBA has become too political are forgetting the name on the trophy. “Politics is the art of the possible,” Larry O’Brien said. He was a fixer who understood that elections could be won by the door-knocking, phone-calling masses. He helped pick out Jack Kennedy’s casket. He stood near the place where Bobby Kennedy lay bleeding at the Ambassador Hotel. His father was a bartender, born in Ireland, and Larry was born in Springfield, Mass., home of basketball’s Hall of Fame. He ...

Cloud Covered: What was new with Google Cloud in September

September is typically a month of transition, with students going back to school and most American sports leagues starting their seasons or getting ready for playoffs. But that wasn’t always the case this year. The unique circumstances of 2020 have made these transitions and many others more complicated, creating new challenges for all businesses.

Padres’ pitching plans for NLDS are a game-time decision

The Dodgers can expect to see Zach Davies and Chris Paddack pitch for the San Diego Padres during the National League Division Series. Maybe they’ll see Dinelson Lamet and Mike Clevinger, too. The assurances were few and the vagaries were many when Manager Jayce Tingler spoke about his pitching plans during a Zoom session Monday afternoon, one day before Game 1 at Arlington’s Globe Life Field. “I hope to know around 10 a.m. tomorrow,” Tingler said, “and as far as what the major determining facto...

Alexander: For Lakers/Dodgers fans, it’s all about multitasking

Major League Baseball announced Wednesday afternoon that 11,000 tickets per game, appropriately socially distanced, will be sold for NL Championship Series and World Series games in Arlington, Texas, at Globe Life Field or Park or whatever their new facility is called these days. That is not going to help at this early point of baseball’s postseason. And it’s particularly not going to do much for the city of Los Angeles, which if all goes well could wind up with a double bonanza but no way to en...
