But as long as I’ve had this cold, the offense seems to ebb and flow as I feel better or worse, so maybe it’s time for me to kick this thing.
Chris Capuano made his first start of the season for the Dodgers and quickly found himself down 4-0 in the first inning. Chris Denorfia led the game off with a single.

Yasiel Puig, the star of spring training for the Los Angeles Dodgers, has the attention of the club once again less than a month into the season. The problem is that the attention he is receiving now is not due to on field issues but rather an arrest this week in Tennessee.

One Los Angeles Dodger fan filmed himself catching not one, not two but three different Matt Kemp home run balls out in the stands of Dodger Stadium over the course of three years. Okay, it was only during batting practice but it's still three souvenir balls.

Okay, so I’m a bit late to the party here and I’ll keep it brief, not because I enjoy keeping my recaps brief, but because my cold turned into a monster and I’ve barely been able to do anything for myself.
