    Letters: Can't see what they can't hit
    I understand from reading the L.A. Times sports page that Josh Beckett threw a no-hitter followed by Hyun-Jin Ryu's seven innings of a perfect game, but I don't believe it because "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to see it...."...

    Dodgers continue to stumble, falling, 5-4, to Rockies in 11 innings
    That seemed inevitable, the way the Dodgers have been going of late, the way their offense has underperformed and their bullpen struggled in the late innings. The Dodgers wasted a terrific start by Josh Beckett and fell out of first place on a wet...
  • Kenley Jansen and Dodgers' bullpen getting worrisome workload

    Kenley Jansen and Dodgers' bullpen getting worrisome workload
    When is there too much of a good thing? When it wears down and breaks. There are only so many miles you can put on that ’62 Corvette and the arms of relievers. Kenley Jansen currently leads all major league pitchers in appearances with 13....

  • Dodgers' impressive rotation is something to really build around

    There was a lot of talk in the off-season about the Dodgers’ imposing lineup and veteran bullpen. Both looked so impressive. Some of the best in the game. It’s just that neither was really the center of what the Dodgers were trying to...
