St. Louis Cardinals ‘ All-Star right fielder Carlos Beltran did not like Yasiel Puig’s high-spirited celebrations during Game 3 of the National League Championship Series. After hitting a long drive into right field in the fourth inning, Puig raised his arms in the batter’s box to watch the flight of the ball, clearly thinking it was going to be a home run. But once he relaized it wasn’t he charged around the basepaths and into third for an RBI triple that helped the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Cardinals 3-0

Los Angeles Dodgers rookie right fielder Yasiel Puig had some trouble with a fly ball in the ninth inning of Wednesday's NLCS Game 5 after losing it in the sun.
St. Louis Cardinals batter Matt Holliday hit the fly ball to right field, and Puig seemed to turn away at the last minute and let the ball drop. Based on the video, we can't dispute Puig's claim that the...
Los Angeles Dodgers star outfielder Yasiel Puig is exciting to watch. The young man has a cannon of an arm and he is dangerous every time he steps up to the plate. Need a tide turning kind of play? This is the guy that will provide it more often than not for the Dodgers.
The only knock on him is his immaturity; that's the reason the club sent him to the minors to start the...
Some people have been waiting all playoffs for Yasiel Puig to make the kind of error in the field that he made during the regular season. For the most part, the Los Angeles Dodgers fielder has avoided bad plays that made guys like Jon Jay and Evan Gattis headlines. But Puig did miss a ball […]
LOS ANGELES -- There may be a lot of people thinking the Dodgers' surprising 2013 season is about to come to an end after losing the first two games of the NLCS in St. Louis.
Don't count left fielder Carl Crawford as one of that group.
"Not at all," Crawford answered when asked if the 3-2 and 1-0 losses to the Cardinals were the death knell for his team. "...
Down two games to the Cardinals, Los Angeles didn’t have much to be cocky about in Game 3 of the NLCS, but don’t tell that to Yasiel Puig.
The Dodgers star outfielder struggled mightily in the first two games of the series, going 0-for-10 with six strikeouts against St. Louis. The rest of the Dodgers weren’t doing much better, though, hitting just .184 in the series and only...

Shortstop Hanley Ramirez started Game 4 of the National League Championship Series on Tuesday despite having a fractured rib in his left side but he was removed after six innings as the pain worsened and the Dodgers decided Ramirez needed to start treatment early in hopes of playing Game 5 on Wednesday.

Dodgers Yasiel Puig hadn’t had a hit in the NLCS until Monday night. When he finally got off against the St. Louis Cardinals, Puig clearly thought this one was going over the fence… not so much but it was enough for an RBI triple.

In the brief interludes between arguing whether the Cardinals do indeed have “the best fans in baseball” and if they should or should not be offended by Yasiel Puig, a popular discussion topic on social media has centered on St. Louis’ so-called “Cardinals Devil Magic,” i.e., the sense that everything always seems to go the Cardinals’ way in October.
Setting aside the...
As the post season crawls to a close, thus ushering in the hot stove season, there seems to be a growing tide of great and unrealistic expectations for players the Mets could or should target.
Over at MetsBlog, they’ve spent this weekend writing multiple times about Tim Lincecum as well as other potential free agents or players presumed to be on the block like Mike Napoli, Jacoby...
[Los Angeles Times - Dodgers Now]
We told you it would be so; we told you that the Dodgers would beat Adam Wainwright in the Cardinals in game three of the NLCS. And that’s exactly what happened.
The Dodgers snapped an ugly scoreless streak by gathering a single by Adrian Gonzalez, and a huge triple from Yasiel Puig with two outs. Puig pimped it as if the ball was out...
I have no voice... and very few words... except:
Go Blue! These Boys showed up to play tonight!
Ryu! He got the best of Waino and the Cards pitching a 3 hit shutout. He was mixing it up out there throw a 94 MPH fastball with a 81 MPH change to follow. If we did not have such a strong pen with B. Weezy and Jansen, he could have gone the distance - but why waste...
