Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger: ‘At the end of the day, I have confidence in myself and believe in myself’

PHOENIX — These have been trying times for Cody Bellinger, to say the least. If it isn’t the injuries — a fracture in his left fibula, a hamstring strain and now a rib fracture — it’s the flood of strikeouts, pop ups and fly outs that have dragged his batting average and OPS lower and lower. “It’s my first time I’ve ever dealt with injuries. It happens. It’s been wild, I’m not gonna lie,” Bellinger said Saturday at Chase Field as he began working out in preparation for a return from the rib inju...

Whicker: Dodgers vs. Giants race dulled by wild card

If this was a real pennant race, it wouldn’t be “winner-take-some.” The Giants or the Dodgers would win the National League West, and the second-place team would begin its long, angry winter. No wild-card teams, which were the brainchild of Hall of Fame commissioner Bud Selig, the man who tried to give us replacement players. No mulligans. If the Giants and Dodgers wind up tied after next Sunday’s season finale, they will play a 163rd game, but only to determine tournament placement. The loser w...

AJ Pollock leads Dodgers to win over his former team

PHOENIX — No hard feelings – but lots of hard contact. AJ Pollock and the Arizona Diamondbacks went their separate ways following the 2018 season. But they didn’t go very far, giving Pollock the chance to revisit his former workplace and show off for his former employers. In the latest edition of that, Pollock had a two-run home run and crashed into the left field wall to make an outstanding catch in the Dodgers’ 4-2 dismissal of the Diamondbacks on Friday night. At roughly the same time, the Sa...

Whicker: The Dodgers drafting Will Smith in 2016 keeps paying dividends

Two other Louisville Cardinals were drafted before Will Smith in 2016. He wasn’t even the first Will, since the Pirates picked Will Craig 22nd. He wasn’t the first Dodger, either. Gavin Lux was, with the 20th pick. He was also the third catcher. The White Sox chose Zack Collins at No. 10, and the Angels went for Matt Thaiss at 16. The Dodgers were able to wait until the supplemental round before they took Smith at No. 32. People began comparing him to the Giants’ Buster Posey, because Smith was ...

Dodgers win in extra innings on Albert Pujols’ RBI single

DENVER — Julio Urias has pitched nearly 100 innings more this year than he ever has in a major-league season. And it might be starting to show. The young left-hander showed decreased velocity on his fastball for the second consecutive start Tuesday night. Urias left with the game tied and it stayed that way until Albert Pujols’ pinch-hit RBI single in the 10th inning gave the Dodgers a 5-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. The Dodgers started the night one game behind the rival S...

Dodgers’ pending free agents, Part I: Chris Taylor

Oh, hello there. I didn’t see you come in. Pull up a chair and a cup of coffee. Let’s talk about free agents. The Dodgers, you see, possess some impending free agents on their roster. I’ve been thinking a lot about their fate lately. The Collective Bargaining Agreement between MLB and the MLB Players’ Association expires this winter. Without a new one, there will be no 2022 season and no clarity on the mechanism by which players get paid. We don’t know how that new CBA will affect the financial ...

Dodgers sweep Diamondbacks to finish perfect homestand

LOS ANGELES ― Trea Turner hit an unremarkable ground ball to the right side of second base in the sixth inning Wednesday night. The Arizona Diamondbacks’ second baseman, Andrew Young, fielded the ball and threw it to first base in a fluid motion. The throw was true. Unfortunately for the Diamondbacks, no body in motion is more fluid than Turner sprinting on a baseball diamond. He beat the throw, Matt Beaty ran home from third base, and the Dodgers had a valuable insurance run en route to a 5-3 v...

14 Remakes That Are Better Than The Original

In this day and age, it's amazingly easy to be a cynic. It could be argued that remakes are lazy cash-ins, that they're a sign of the lack of original ideas left in cinema, or that they exist only to appease that sizable portion of the cinema-going audience that needs to see films in their native tongue, without subtitles. That's true in a great many cases (I'm looking at you, "Jacob's Ladder," "Quarantine," and "The Fog"), and yet there are times when a remake is a golden opportunity to do some...
