Former San Francisco Giants turned Los Angeles Dodgers closer Brian Wilson definitely walks to the beat of his own drummer. He proves that everyday with that epic beard of his his. The spandex tuxedo is a pretty good indicator. His 'date' with a Sasquatch is pretty telling as well. As the latest piece of evidence we have this--his photo-shopped image of a special Dodgers inspired little league team: The coach is legendary broadcaster Vin Scully. Starting at the top from left to right is Tommy Lasorda, Mike Piazza, Kirk Gibson, Fernando Valenzuela, Jackie Robinson; kneeling down is Maury Wills, Don Drysdale, Sandy Koufax,and of course Wilson.

Injury Roll Call: Kemp is out until forever, Crawford returns, Gwynn Jr. off DL, Griggs to DL

Matt Kemp‘s second home the last couple of seasons has been the disabled list, and he finds himself back on it again with the ankle injury he suffered in his first game back from the 15-day following his shoulder injury.

MLB players pay tribute to 'The Sandlot'

The Sandlot is the single greatest baseball movie ever. It is celebrating its 20th anniversary and to commemorate it, a handful of Major League Baseball players recited the most quoted lines from the movie, including the greatest performance this year by Yasiel Puig. “Wendy Peffercorn…” Now, granted they busted out the famous ‘you’re killing me Smalls’ line, but they...

Hanley Ramirez makes sweet play to turn two

courtesy of Harry How/Getty Images It was the best double play turned this year and it happened Thursday night in Chicago.  Los Angeles Dodgers’ shortstop, Hanley Ramirez made an incredible stop with his momentum going towards third base.  Instead of spinning his body around to make the throw to second, he backhand’s a long flip to Dodgers’ second baseman Mark Ellis with...

Captain BlueBeard

Brian Wilson is a Los Angeles Dodger. That doesn’t make me angry, just sad.  I hate to see any great Giant to go on to wear the Dodger Blue, but him especially.  I could handle him on just about any other team than the Dodgers. Well, I’d hate to see him on the Cardinals.  Or the Braves for that matter.  And the Angels definitely would suck, because it’s still L.A.  And...

Dodgers' Ryu wants to be rookie of the year

Hyun-Jin Ryu started the season with two goals: to win 10 games and be named the National League rookie of the year. Ryu reached the first of those goals Friday as he improved to 10-3 in the Dodgers' 6-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. Ryu gave up 11 hits over 51/3 innings but was charged with only two runs. He struck out six. "My new goal now is reaching...

After spending the last 15 months recovering from his second Tommy John surgery, the famous bearded closer shucked his roots in the San Francisco Giants organization and opted to sign a one-year, $1 million contract with their arch-rivals.

Down On The Farm: Weeks Of July 15 & 22 – Pederson, Windle, Trinkwon, Gould, Curletta

Sorry, no Julio Urias this week, as the ridiculously young hurler didn’t go beyond two innings in either of his starts. The southpaw hasn’t exceeded two innings since early July. —– Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes (1-3 and 4-3) Player Of The Week – 7/15 It was a short week for the Topes with the Triple-A All-Star Game eating into the week.

Yasiel Puig Kicks off the Weekend Early in Chicago with a Wrigley Bomb

We kind of had the feeling Yasiel Puig would do this last night in his first game in Chicago. He seems like the kind of guy who likes to start a weekend early – and start the weekend early he did. The ball was flying out of Wrigley last night like crazy. The Dodgers won the game 6-4, their 12th straight road win. The highlight was clearly Puig catching this low breaking ball and...

Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig make another diving catch to rob a hit

If you have the opportunity to see Yasiel Puig play, pay the money, because you’re likely to see something special.  Friday night’s Puig highlight was a diving catch, as he was coming in and to his left and robbed Chicago Cubs IF Darwin Barney of a sure hit.  What I want you to watch is the economy of steps.  By the time the camera catches Puig who got a great jump, he makes...

Yasiel Puig leads the Dodgers past Cubs 6-4

The Los Angeles Dodgers had their liveliest crowds of the season on this last homestand but they seem to save their best baseball for when most of the people in the building are against them. The Dodgers flew through the night to the Midwest and then played one of their most explosive games in a week in a 6-4 win over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field on Thursday. It was the Dodgers...

Dodgers win to match club-record road streak

CHICAGO (AP) -- Mark Ellis extended his hitting streak to 13 games before both he and manager Don Mattingly were ejected, and the Los Angeles Dodgers matched an 89-year-old club record with their 12th straight road victory, beating the Chicago Cubs 6-2 on Friday. Ellis doubled and scored in the third before being tossed when he and Mattingly argued a called third strike in the fourth...

Cristiano Ronaldo Throws Wild First Pitch at Dodger Stadium, Gives Yasiel Puig No Chance to Snag Heater (Video)

Cristiano Ronaldo threw out the first pitch at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday night, but if he wanted to ensure accuracy to home plate, he probably should have kicked it. The Real Madrid star’s wild attempt could best be described as “just a bit outside,” and Yasiel Puig who was scheduled to catch the pitch, had no chance to corral it. Check out the pitch below, which is still...

Brian Wilson: Hate Him Now, But Love Him Forever

Former San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson, signed a Minor League deal this past Tuesday (July, 30) with the Rival Dodgers. This had all the Social Media outlets going crazy, people wishing bad things on Wilson (myself included, before I took a step back) hoping that his career ends before it starts back up etc.  I didn’t think much of this, people are upset and rightfully...
