The debate will continue whether Yasiel Puig should go to the All-Star game or not until MLB finds a way to place him on the NL roster.
Of course that has little to do with the way the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder gave Luis Gonzalez the cold shoulder on Monday.
As Dan Dickley reported on Wednesday the Dodgers youngster ignored the former...
Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman has beaten out Los Angeles Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig in the Final Vote by the fans for a roster spot on the National League All-Star team.
There had been backlash about Puig, the dynamic Dodgers outfielder, potentially making the team because he would have become the first player in MLB history to appear on an All-Star roster having...
The Dodgers want Yasiel Puig to be an All-Star. Yasiel Puig wants Yasiel Puig to be an All-Star.
They are both desperate. This is the only reason I can think of that this plug happened. Regardless, I’ve never been more grateful for whatever string of awesome/terrible decision making led to this.
1) Puig can talk to animals.
2) Puig can do … things blindfolded.
3) Puig can...
The Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers don’t like each other. Most of the ill-will stems from the Ian Kennedy-Zack Greinke Beanfest back in June.
Now, the D’backs are starting to turn their attention to the mercurial Yasiel Puig. Diamondback Catcher Miguel Montero had some choice words for the reckless Puig. From MLB.com:
“If he’s my teammate, I probably try to...
The fans have spoken.
Freddie Freeman of the Braves and Steve Delebar of the Blue Jays were the winners of the All Star Game final vote.
Freeman vs Puigmania was an epic battle to the end, with the Freeman devotees coming out the victors. Puig being a possible player in this year’s All Star games captured the criticism of many in the baseball world.
With just a month under his...
With the MLB All-Star Game Final Vote campaign currently clogging your Twitter feeds today, one theme has been popping up surrounding the National League voting this week: is ESPN pushing Yasiel Puig a little too hard to win the vote?
If you simply looked at ESPN's Twitter, you wouldn't get that impression. One tweet about Puig has come out since the Final Vote began...
Los Angeles pitcher Zack Greinke drew a walk in the 10th inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks after the Dodgers ran low on position players.
The Dodgers were already down a player with second baseman Skip Schumaker serving the first game of a two-game suspension and had one position player left after rallying to tie the game at 5-all in the ninth inning Wednesday night.
Yasiel Puig has captivated baseball since making his major league debut on June 3. He went 2-for-4 in his debut and threw out a runner to end the game, clubbed two home runs the next game, and had four home runs and 10 RBIs in his first five games with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Though [...]
If you think Yasiel Puig is arrogant now, just wait until he signs with Jay-Z.
The LA Dodgers phenom, who in little more than a month has become the biggest thing in baseball, spent Monday and Tuesday catching the ire of several Arizona Diamondbacks, who ripped him to the media . But by the time he took the field Wednesday, a Yahoo Sports report surfaced claiming that Jay-Z'...
Writing the Los Angeles Dodgers off in April (as some may have done) was probably a mistake, if for no other reason than it was so early in the schedule. There was so much more baseball to be played.
We also didn't know how the Dodgers' competition in the NL West would play. The Diamondbacks, Rockies and Giants had a chance to bury the Dodgers after they had dug such...
Despite my initial support for Yasiel Puig, Iâve
come to believe that him not making the All-Star team is a good
Your browser does not support iframes. Yasiel Puig made a rookie mistake on Tuesday, and Miguel Montero taught the youngster a lesson. Puig ignored his third base coach when he tried to score from first on a fly ball to center by Adrian Gonzalez in the top of the 5th of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ [...]
I don’t often write these sort of unfocused think-pieces. (Well, I happen to think that I don’t, but many of my commenters undoubtedly disagree.) Anyway, I’m thinking about Yasiel Puig today. After an impressive, intensely hyped first month, the Dodger wunderkind lost to Freddie Freeman in the fans’ vote for the All-Star Game. (Of course, with injury replacements and so on...
