Los Angeles Angels
Los Angeles Dodgers
Last Week: 1
Mike Trout - Yasiel Puig made his debut on June 3rd and posted a .391/.422/.616 slash line. Over that same span Mike Trout has gone for .367/.448/.597. That is an OPS by Trout that is seven points greater than Puig in a tougher run environment plus elite defense in center. So, shut up already, Dodger fans.
Last Week: 3
Howie Kendrick - Prayers for Kendrick getting un-snubbed as a replacement All-Star pick went unanswered. Apparently they don't want him GIDPing in the game since it totally counts now.
Last Week: 2
Jered Weaver - Weaver was just bad enough against the Mariners to make me start worrying about him again.
Last Week: 4
C.J. Wilson - He is starting to look dangero...

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 [...]

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...
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...
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. This tactic is pretty much how Bleacher Report built its revenue monster. Now, it seems, more traditional outlets are getting in on the action. After Yoenis Cespedes...
Matt Kemp is injured and on the disabled list yet again, as he’s suffering from irritation in the AC joint of his re-built left shoulder.
Matt Kemp’s lost season took another bad turn on Monday, as the Dodgers center fielder was placed on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder AC joint inflammation. The move is retroactive to Saturday, one day after Kemp irritated the AC...
Last year, the race for the AL MVP award between Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout was heated, and often times grew personal between the proponents of either side. The arguments really boiled down to "Triple Crown" versus "historical, five tool, balanced season". In the end, Cabrera won the award rather handily, and the internet grumbled.
This year, there really...
Zack Greinke retired his first 13 batters before finishing with a two-hitter for a win in his fifth straight start and leading the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Colorado Rockies 1-0 on Saturday.
The Dodgers won for the 14th time in 17 games, despite the absence of rookie outfielder Yasiel Puig, who missed his first game since his promotion on June 3 because of a sore left hip. He...
Mike Trout continues to live up to the hype and is having an excellent season without the help of Albert Pujols, and Josh Hamilton. Justin Upton started hot and finished hot to keep himself valuable. He hit 12 home runs in April and has hit just 4 over his last 235 ABs. But he did hit .319 in July before the break so that is a good sign of things to come. His brother B.J. on the...
Yasiel Puig seems to have taken to capitalism like a duck to water.
Remember that just 14 months ago, the young Dodgers phenom was still in Cuba, planning to defect to the United States. However, now the 22-year-old is bona fide celebrity in America, and suffice it to say that’s a significantly different lifestyle than living under a Communist dictatorship.
As you may have heard...
After hitting a hot streak and looking like a legitimate contender for .500 1st half (don't laugh) they end the run with a sweep in Seattle. Despite ending the 1st half on the season under .500 and facing an ugly sweep against the Mariners the Angels are still in a decent spot to make a run after the break. Out of the Angels next 20 games 13 of them are against teams ahead of...
Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez has been cleared by the U.S. Treasury Department and is free to sign a contract with any Major League Baseball team. The 26-year0-old Cuban is right handed and had roughly 45 scouts show up to a recent throwing session.
#Cuba RHP Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez has been cleared by US govt. (OFAC) & is free to sign with MLB club. Deal could happen this week or...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been on some kind of roll over the past 20 games with a record of 16-4. The team is looking to get healthy and make a run into the postseason. Manager Don Mattingly answered questions about injuries and the team today before Photo Day at Dodgers Stadium.
“Just a little over a week ago we were talking about having four outfielders and now we only have...
