  1. Dodgers' rebound win sweet in the details

    Christina Kahrl

    The Dodgers tied up their series, and though they had a few in-game setbacks, Saturday's win over the Cardinals was more impressive because when things didn't work out, the Dodgers still found a way to win, often by exploiting the star power that mak...

    Christina Kahrl

    Hanley delivers, Dodgers win? I know it's only something we've been hearing about for the last six weeks or so, but give credit where it's due: The dude has made that every bit as much an everyday event as Yasiel Puig made feats of strength just so m...

  4. Dodgers doing the necessary things

    Christina Kahrl

    Matt Kemp didn't go yard. He didn't need to. And Andre Ethier? He didn't put the lineup on his back either. What of Mattingly's mighty mites, the guys who were the toast of Los Angeles back in May? They were there, sure, but they essentially clocked ...

  6. Center-field superstars: Generation Next

    Christina Kahrl

    You might have been one of those children who grew up with parents who, every Saturday, turned your radio's dial to "A Prairie Home Companion," where among other features you could reliably look forward to the segment in which Garrison Keillor welcom...

  7. Clearing the Bases: Wild, wild Wests

    Christina Kahrl

    First base: Carlos Gonzalez ripped a trio of home runs against the Astros in Coors Field. There's no snark or punchline, just simple facts: The dude can rake, Coors is where he plays and the Astros aren't the joke that people made them out to be in M...

    Christina Kahrl |

  9. Things are getting shifty for Matt Kemp

    Christina Kahrl

    CHICAGO -- It's no secret Matt Kemp has been the hottest hitter in baseball. If you're trying to stop Kemp, you might rely on the traditional work-arounds on defense: You might try to pitch around him, and hope he gets frustrated or impatient. You mi...

  11. Brewers-Dodgers generates its own drama

    Christina Kahrl

    From beginning to end, this was baseball as it oughta be, any night and every night, from a first-pitch beginning to a dramatic finale. The Milwaukee Brewers came away with their second consecutive walk-off win when Ryan Braun's bases-loaded sac fly ...

    Christina Kahrl

    As we discussed in the first installment yesterday, performance at different positions invariably moves around a bit from year to year, but what about at the skill positions up the middle? It seems as if not a winter goes by when you won't wind up...

  14. NL MVP vote reassuring or exasperating?

    Christina Kahrl

    The expectation was that the NL MVP would be a two-man race, and the Baseball Writers' Association of America delivered exactly that, with left fielder Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers coming out decisively ahead of Dodgers center fielder Matt Kem...

  15. SweetSpot's NL MVP take

    Christina Kahrl

    PHOENIX -- Expectations were high for Monday night's Home Run Derby, in one of the best home run ballparks in the majors. And there was a good chance to see a decent chunk of change go to charity, thanks to State Farm's promise to donate $18,000 per ...
