Matt Kemp‘s second home the last couple of seasons has been the disabled list, and he finds himself back on it again with the ankle injury he suffered in his first game back from the 15-day following his shoulder injury.

MLB players pay tribute to 'The Sandlot'

The Sandlot is the single greatest baseball movie ever. It is celebrating its 20th anniversary and to commemorate it, a handful of Major League Baseball players recited the most quoted lines from the movie, including the greatest performance this year by Yasiel Puig. “Wendy Peffercorn…” Now, granted they busted out the famous ‘you’re killing me Smalls’ line, but they...

Hanley Ramirez makes sweet play to turn two

courtesy of Harry How/Getty Images It was the best double play turned this year and it happened Thursday night in Chicago.  Los Angeles Dodgers’ shortstop, Hanley Ramirez made an incredible stop with his momentum going towards third base.  Instead of spinning his body around to make the throw to second, he backhand’s a long flip to Dodgers’ second baseman Mark Ellis with...

Down On The Farm: Weeks Of July 15 & 22 – Pederson, Windle, Trinkwon, Gould, Curletta

Sorry, no Julio Urias this week, as the ridiculously young hurler didn’t go beyond two innings in either of his starts. The southpaw hasn’t exceeded two innings since early July. —– Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes (1-3 and 4-3) Player Of The Week – 7/15 It was a short week for the Topes with the Triple-A All-Star Game eating into the week.

Yasiel Puig Kicks off the Weekend Early in Chicago with a Wrigley Bomb

We kind of had the feeling Yasiel Puig would do this last night in his first game in Chicago. He seems like the kind of guy who likes to start a weekend early – and start the weekend early he did. The ball was flying out of Wrigley last night like crazy. The Dodgers won the game 6-4, their 12th straight road win. The highlight was clearly Puig catching this low breaking ball and...

Yasiel Puig leads the Dodgers past Cubs 6-4

The Los Angeles Dodgers had their liveliest crowds of the season on this last homestand but they seem to save their best baseball for when most of the people in the building are against them. The Dodgers flew through the night to the Midwest and then played one of their most explosive games in a week in a 6-4 win over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field on Thursday. It was the Dodgers...

Brian Wilson a Dodger: reactions and thoughts

It’s official. Brian Wilson is now a Los Angeles Dodger. After spending the last 15 months recovering from his second Tommy John surgery, the famous bearded closer shucked his roots in the San Francisco Giants organization and opted to sign a one-year, $1 million contract with their arch-rivals. There have been mixed reactions from around the league. His former teammates and...

Cristiano Ronaldo Throws Wild First Pitch at Dodger Stadium, Gives Yasiel Puig No Chance to Snag Heater (Video)

Cristiano Ronaldo threw out the first pitch at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday night, but if he wanted to ensure accuracy to home plate, he probably should have kicked it. The Real Madrid star’s wild attempt could best be described as “just a bit outside,” and Yasiel Puig who was scheduled to catch the pitch, had no chance to corral it. Check out the pitch below, which is still...

New Dodgers Closer Brian Wilson Proves he is Still One Weird Dude

Former San Francisco Giants turned Los Angeles Dodgers closer Brian Wilson definitely walks to the beat of his own drummer. He proves that everyday with that epic beard of his his. The spandex tuxedo is a pretty good indicator. His 'date' with a Sasquatch is pretty telling as well. As the latest piece of evidence we have this--his photo-shopped image of a special Dodgers...

Dodgers 3, Yankees 2

Mark Ellis singled in the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.

Ellis lifts Dodgers over Yanks

Mark Ellis has been on nearly as big of a roll as the Los Angeles Dodgers since the All-Star break. The second baseman has hit safely in all 11 of his team's games, batting .415 with a homer and eight RBIs since the second half began July 19. Ellis delivered the winning single with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Dodgers a 3-2 victory over the New York...

Captain BlueBeard

Brian Wilson is a Los Angeles Dodger. That doesn’t make me angry, just sad.  I hate to see any great Giant to go on to wear the Dodger Blue, but him especially.  I could handle him on just about any other team than the Dodgers. Well, I’d hate to see him on the Cardinals.  Or the Braves for that matter.  And the Angels definitely would suck, because it’s still L.A.  And...
