Feelin' Kinda Blue:
On this episode of "Dugout Blues," Jared Massey (Dodger Diamond) talk about Clayton Kershaw's perfect inning in the 2013 All-Star Game. We also touch on Yasiel Puig's non-inclusion in the event.
The Dodgers are at 47-47 after 94 games. That wasn't the way management and fans drew it up in March, but considering where they were just six weeks ago, .500 is great. I gave out midesason grades for the Dodgers over at Yahoo! Sports.
Joc Pederson played in the Futures Game on Sunday and had a nice showing. He got a hit, drew a walk, showed off his wheels and his arm all in four innings.
Jared released his midseason Top 31 prospects today while I released my midseason Top 25 on Monday.. We talk a bit about them.
The Dodgers signed Alberto Estrella yesterday, and we touch on Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, who could sign soon as he was cleared earlier this week by the U.S. government.
To close, we answer listener questions. Keep 'em coming, folks.

With the All-Star break ending, the Los Angeles Dodgers will return to the field Friday in Washington against the Nationals. Ricky Nolasco will be on the mound for his third start as a Dodger, second straight after he pitched in the first half finale against the Colorado Rockies.
Just 13 days remain before the July 31 trade deadline...
The Dodgers made another international signing on Thursday, inking Venezuelan shortstop Moises Perez to a $250,000 bonus.
The 16-year-old is the sixth prospect the Dodgers have signed on the international market -- three of whom have been shortstops (Alberto Estrella, Lucas Tirado), one an outfielder (Daniel Padilla) and two pitchers (Sven Schuller, Alvaro Trillo).

The Dodgers spent another $600,000 on the international market today by signing infielder Alberto Estrella out of the Dominican Republic.From Ben Badler of Baseball America:"Estrella, a 16-year-old who has played in the International Prospect League, stands out for his size (6-foot-4, 195 pounds) and righthanded power potential. Estrella, who has spent time at shortstop, might...
The Dodgers have been very vocal about their desire to add a third baseman this summer. However, the trade market isn’t all that great. Beyond Aramis Ramirez and Michael Young, there hasn’t been one whisper of another solid third baseman being available this summer. Not that Ramirez and Young are either. The Dodgers have no need for a 37-year-old third baseman. Yes, this means...
Yasiel Puig may not have been selected for the MLB All-Star Game, but he did manage to score an invitation to the Playboy Mansion on Monday night. The Los Angeles Dodgers rookie spent the first day of his All-Star break attending the 8th annual Bear Trap Entertainment (BTE) All-Star Celebrity Kickoff Party at the Playboy [...]
It was reported yesterday that the Los Angeles Dodgers are hoping to activate outfielder Matt Kemp from the disabled list on July 21 and
insert him back into their regular lineup. Before they do, manager Don
Mattingly told Dylan Hernandez of The Los Angeles Times that it might be a good
idea to have the veteran prepare by spending time rehabbing in the minors.
The best baseball players got rewarded for their hard work and talent by being asked to play baseball one more time in the All-Star Game.
Deserving players who just missed out on the honor are said to have been "snubbed," and they presumably kick the dirt with the toe of their shoe and stick out their bottom lip.
But not Yasiel Puig, the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder...
When you see how poised Los Angeles Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig is on the field, you forget that the guy is just 22-year-old. But when you follow the outfielder on Twitter, you remember that he's every bit his age...and dude LOVES Instagram. You'll remember that last month, when the Dodgers returned to New York to take on the Yankees, Puig made time to get out and rub...
The Red Sox will be paying a visit to a few familiar faces next month.
In August, the team will take on the Dodgers in Los Angeles, marking the first time the two teams have met since last summer’s blockbuster trade that sent Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett to the West Coast and brought Allen Webster to Boston.
The Sox will not see Beckett on the trip — he has...

Despite their hot play as of late, the All-Star break
couldn’t have come any sooner for the ailing Dodgers.
The Dodgers currently have seven players on the Disabled
List, which partially explains why this talent-filled roster is hovering around
a .500 winning percentage.
The Dodgers need to get healthy and avoid future injuries –
if they have...
I would like to announce that I am calling a MLB fan-only meeting. I have to make a complaint about how the majority of us fans have become so enthralled in Puigmania that we have already decided that Yasiel Puig is the next best player based off of a minuscule sample of 151 at-bats.
Now, before any of you Puigmaniacs jump the gun once again on this article and skip down to...
JP Crawford, screencap- MLB Network
Currently ranking third in the Gulf Coast League in batting with a .372 average, 18-year-old J.P. Crawford is proving that he was certainly ready for professional baseball when the Phillies selected him with their 1st round pick (16th overall) last month.
In 13 minor league games thus far, the lefty batting shortstop from California has also drilled...
By now, we all now how this internet thing works. Juice up your post with SEO goodness, and then attach a click-baity headline that attracts eyeballs, whether it’s accurate or has anything to do with the story or not.
