My Sports Rumors:
Yesterday, Sergio Romo of the San Francisco Giants got a little excited after closing out his teams 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers by doing Hanley Ramirez’s “I See You”. The team obviously took offense to this and made sure to use it as motivation today. With the game tied at one in the ninth inning the Dodgers offense tattooed Romo for three runs, to give him the loss. It was so bad that Romo didn’t even get to finish the inning.
Yasiel Puig on Sergio Romo: "Yesterday, he struck me out, he controlled Hanley, and he celebrated. Today, it was our turn to celebrate."

To make matters worse, Romo wouldn’t even speak to the media after the game. He quickly dressed and reportedly brushed by reporters waiting to speak.
For those who didn’t see Romo’s gesture Saturday night here it is.
BEST OF MAXIM
July is not going any better than June for the San Francisco Giants. Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News tweeted Monday that infielder Joaquin Arias had been placed on the DL after undergoing an appendectomy on Sunday night. Nick Noonan has been called up from the minors to take his place.
Giants placed Joaquin Arias on disabled list with appendicitis and recalled...
The San Francisco Giants activated pitcher Chad Gaudin off the 15-day disabled list to start Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Gaudin had been out since getting hit in the right elbow by a line drive from Miami's Derek Dietrich on June 20. San Francisco's primary long reliever at the start of the season, Gaudin was moved into the Giants starting rotation...
Last week, Bruce Bochy was quoting in saying that he didn't believe emerging Los Angeles Dodgers rookie superstar Yasiel Puig deserved a place on the National League All-Star team. This was potentially detrimental to Puig's All-Star hopes considering the fact that Bochy will manage the National League squad later this month in the All-Star Game."Generally, guys that...
The Dodgers want Yasiel Puig to be an All-Star. Yasiel Puig wants Yasiel Puig to be an All-Star.
They are both desperate. This is the only reason I can think of that this plug happened. Regardless, I’ve never been more grateful for whatever string of awesome/terrible decision making led to this.
1) Puig can talk to animals.
2) Puig can do … things blindfolded.
3) Puig can...
Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes (5-1)
Player Of The Week
Nick Buss – OF
.348/.444/.739/1.183, 1 HR, 9 RBI, 2 2B, 2 3B, 5 R, 2 SB, 2 BB, 2 K
Buss, the lone Isotope representative for the Triple-A All-Star Game, had himself a solid week and is having a really good season overall. At best, he’s a fifth outfielder-type, but being able to play center field is an advantage for...
A blunder with the batting order cost the San Francisco Giants a run scored on Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Leadoff batter Gregor Blanco started off the bottom of the first with a double off Stephen Fife. Marco Scutaro moved Blanco to third on a sacrifice, and catcher Buster Posey came up after that. [...]
After an extended rumored pursuit of the right-handed pitcher, the Dodgers landed Ricky Nolasco from the Marlins in a trade for Steven Ames, Josh Wall, and Angel Sanchez, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. The Dodgers are paying Nolasco’s salary as well.
In exchange for a #4 starter in the rotation and extending the reserve of reliable starters to at least six, the Dodgers...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have officially acquired starting right-hander Ricky Nolasco from the Miami Marlins for right-handers Josh Wall, Steven Ames and Angel Sanchez.
The Dodgers are on the hook for the entire $5.7MM remaining on Nolasco’s contract, but the Dodgers have reported they will receive international signing bonus slot number 96, which equates to $197,000 in international...
Following weeks of uncertainty, Ricky Nolasco was sent to the surging Dodgers over the weekend. He appears more than pleased with how everything played out.
Nolasco will try to come out strong in his Dodgers debut Tuesday night opposite Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy, who played a big role in last month's brawl between the two clubs.
After several teams showed interest in...
Because it’s something you simply don’t see that often unless you’re hanging out around Little League games:
Whoops RT @Ken_Rosenthal: Giants bat out of order. Posey called out after RBI 2B. Sandoval 3rd, Posey 4th on official card

The Los Angeles Dodgers have one player on the NL All-Star team, and they have the possibility of getting a second player added to the squad. Both first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and outfielder Yasiel Puig are among the five finalists for the final spot. The other finalists in the fan vote are Washington Nationals shortstop [...]
Eric Young Jr. scored on shortstop Brandon Crawford's fielding error with two outs in the 16th inning, and the New York Mets outlasted the San Francisco Giants 4-3 in a game that ended early Tuesday morning.
Young singled with one out and stole second. After he advanced to third on Daniel Murphy's groundout, lefty Javier Lopez entered and intentionally walked David Wright...
If the Giants are going to salvage their rapidly sinking 2013 season, they’re going to have to start winning just about every series. They knew going into Sunday’s game that accomplishing that task against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers was going to be difficult. Unfortunately, Kershaw, as he has in so many starts against the Giants over the years, proved a near-impossible nut...
PHOENIX -- Next up: the resumption of the Diamondbacks-Dodgers rivalry.
The teams will meet in a three-game series that starts Monday at Chase Field, 27 days after an on-field brawl that led to a 10-game suspension for Arizona starter Ian Kennedy and these parting words from Los Angeles reliever Ronald Belisario: "It's not over."
Suffice it to say the Diamondbacks...
The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to a trade during Saturday night’s game with the Miami Marlins for starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco. The game itself did not go their way as Madison Bumgarner was able to hold the Dodgers to two runs in a 4-2 win for the San Francisco Giants.
Coming into the game the Dodgers had five straight games in which they had ten or more hits. Bumgarner would...
