Found May 21, 2012 on Busted Coverage:
Just happened upon this video today while looking for footage of the Dodgers fan fight this weekend that’s getting all sorts of attention from L.A. media. What we have here, according to the YouTuber who uploaded it, is from Thursday night’s Padres-Dodgers game in San Diego. What we have is one guy in his boxers challenging three homeboys to a street fight. What happens next is a brutal curb stomping in the middle of a street. Posted: May 17, 2012 Premise of Video: (via vlogger) Another Los Angeles Dodgers game… These guys belong in jail! If you know any of them, please call the police. 3 guys jumped this one guy and kicked his head into the ground repeatedly after the Padres game tonight, then jumped into a cab and took off. Climax of Video: Um, boxer dude takes a few kicks to the head that are picked up pretty well via the iPhone HD feed. Conclusion: Yeah, this is a street fight where KOing the dude with a punch might have kept the cops off the case. The kicks to a guy’s head after he’s KO’d? That’s enough to get the San Diego media into a frenzy and the cops on the lookout for a #25. Is that a Dodgers 25? We can’t seem to find a famous enough #25 in the team’s history.

Mark Ellis a huge loss for Dodgers, plus other news and notes

I was definitely in the minority when the Dodgers signed Mark Ellis in November. Perhaps it's because living in Northern California, I get to watch a lot of Oakland Athletics' games, so I saw him play a lot. Perhaps it's because I have no idea what I'm talking about. This is what I wrote the day he signed: "Ellis will likely be the team's starting...

Mark Ellis was hours from losing his leg

On Friday, Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Mark Ellis was taken out on a slide by the St. Louis Cardinals' Tyler Greene while Ellis attempted to turn a double play.

Creeper of the Week: Will Venable

Location, location, location. Location determines balls and strikes, the weather, housing value, and it can even turn Carlos Gonzalez (.262/.316/.427 on the road) into Ken Griffey Jr. (.329/.384/.609 at home). Personally, I dig California. You’re never far from a beach, a mountain range, or a desert. Pretty much every culture on earth is represented somewhere. The heat in the scorching...
