With the Dodgers in last place and Yasiel Puig on fire in Double-A, pressure to call up the Cuban outfielder is building. In his last ten games, the 22-year-old has posted a .395/.465/.658 slash line, including seven extra base hits and six steals. Healthy and productive, Puig is once again knock...

Yesterday, Don Mattingly had what I call a “Wu-Tang moment”, inspired by the “When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong” skit on Chappelle’s Show.
Humorous? Yes, but what it mean to me is that Mattingly basically dropped all the fronts and simply went in on the Dodgers players and front office in surprisingly pointed comments.
“We’re in last place in the National League West...
The Dodgers have a propensity for drafting players who are athletic and two-way guys. Darren Dreifort was one of the more notable ones, when the team made him the No. 2 draft pick in the 1993 MLB Draft. While most viewed him as a pitcher, the guy could hit.
James Loney was viewed by many as a pitching prospect in 2002. The Dodgers made him a first baseman. Ethan Martin was...
It may have been an accident, but Matt Kemp didn't do a whole lot to endear himself to home plate umpire Wally Bell on May 21.

On this episode of "Dugout Blues," Jared Massey (Dodger Diamond) talk all about the Don Mattingly saga and whether he's as much to blame for the Dodgers' problems as the media is making it out to be.

To close, well, we answer a myriad of listener...
For better or for worse, the Dodgers offense has basically followed Matt Kemp’s lead since 2010. Following a breakout 2009 and the departure of Manny Ramirez, Kemp slumped miserably in 2010 and the team’s offense followed suit. He then single-handedly buoyed a terrible lineup in 2011, and he was well on his way towards doing the same in 2012 before injuries struck.
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Adrian Gonzalez homered and drove in three runs, Mark Ellis lined a go-ahead double in the sixth inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated St. Louis 5-3 on Saturday to snap the Cardinals' three-game winning streak. The last-place Dodgers, who had lost five of seven, blew a two-run lead before Ellis' two-out hit off Seth Maness (3-1) scored Carl Crawford...
When Don Mattingly said Wednesday that the Dodgers could not expect
to win simply by putting together a collection of All-Stars, many
interpreted the manager's remarks as criticism of the team's front
office and ownership.
When Topps recently issued a card of Dodgers rookie Hyun-Jin Ryu and couldn’t tell the difference between Japan and Korea, I thought it would be interested to look at the issue of race and baseball cards.
It turns out this is a legitimate area of scholarly research.
Because baseball cards have one player with an easily identifiable race, and also have well-publicized...

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Don Mattingly isn't in immediate danger of being fired as manager of the last-place Los Angeles Dodgers, with team president Stan Kasten saying none of the players are asking for his dismissal, either.
"I do expect things to turn around. I expect Donnie to be here for a long time," Kasten said Friday before the Dodgers opened a three-game series...
LOS ANGELES (AP) Lance Lynn pitched two-hit ball over six innings, and David Freese and Allen Craig each homered and drove in three runs, helping the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-0 on Friday night for their third win in a row.

It's not even June yet, but apparently it's not too early to begin speculating about Davey Johnson's successor.
And so, with Don Mattingly on the hot seat in LA, CBS Sports' Danny Knobler did just that in a column on Thursday, speculating that if Mattingly gets fired, he could be on Mike Rizzo's radar as Davey's eventual replacement. Via CBSSports.com...
