When the 2013 MLB regular season is over and done there will be many that will sit back and think,”man, what a long, strange trip it has been.” Last season, the Boston Red Sox where in the AL East cellar. For much of this season, the Los Angeles Dodgers were in the NL West cellar. After wins Thursday night, both teams

I recently wrote about an observation I had regarding Matt Kemp‘s change in hitting setup, but I didn’t actually know if this was a conscious move or not on his part.
Heck, some people thought me and the others were just imagining Kemp’s change. However, now the adjustments have been confirmed by the man himself and coaches as well, so Kemp is indeed tinkering with the setup...

The sky is no longer falling on the Los Angeles Dodgers, at least not on Tuesday night.
Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez were back in the lineup for the Dodgers and with their return, the Dodgers cruised to a 9-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Kemp wasted no time in showing...
Dodgers rookie outfielder Yasiel Puig is pretty good at everything he does. His home runs are moonshots, his outfield assists are lasers, and after video of the Dodgers’ postgame celebrations surfaced, it’s also evident he’s very good at crunches.
Even more important, though, are his dance moves. Before he and his teammates dove into the pool at Chase Field, Puig and a few...
Back away from the Twitter machine, slowly, and don’t make any sudden moves, Bob Young.
Young, a columnist for The Arizona Republic, added a whole new layer to the Dodgers-Diamondbacks dispute with a tweet that was probably intended as a joke but just came out as really offensive.
The Diamondbacks are grouchy because they asked the Dodgers not to celebrate clinching the National...
Whether Adrian Gonzalez was a good leader run over by circumstances or just another guy who couldn’t get it done is a debate few Boston fans are concerned with now that the Red Sox are back in working order. But those who like to gripe about Gonzalez could find plenty of reasons to Thursday, when both the Red Sox and Dodgers clinched playoff spots.
The Red Sox beat the Orioles...
I love the way Puig’s teammates aren’t impressed at all.
Hanley Ramirez has resumed baseball activites.
The shortstop hit off a tee and did fielding exercises on Monday for the first time since he last played Thursday.
He was back in the starting lineup yesterday and looked like his normal self, going 1-2 with 3 BB.
His health will be instrumental in how far the Dodgers go in the postseason.
Matt Kemp was activated from the DL on...
Yasiel Puig also did this worm dance thing.
This deserves free playoff tickets T…They refer to them in LA as the “Doyer’s” for reason’s above, this die hard fan decided to tattoo Dodger Stadium on his head. Always seams like a great idea at the time, lets just hoe they don’t do renovations anytime soon.-TODodgers Jump in DBacks PoolYasiel Puig Worm GIF
PHOENIX (AP) -- Juan Uribe and Adrian Gonzalez homered, Zack Greinke pitched six strong innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers inched closer to clinching the NL West title with a 9-3 rout of the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.
One day after coming off the disabled list, Matt Kemp went 4 for 4 with two doubles and three RBIs.
The Dodgers, who once languished in last place 9...
Yesterday, I brought you the initial reaction to Poolgate, the controversy that boils down to "get off my lawn!" As yesterday went on, the reaction quickly spiraled out of control thanks to the Arizona media. The worst however, may belong to Dan Bickley of AZCentral.com.
Not to paint with broad strokes, but the Dodgers are idiots.
Yasiel Puig thought it OK to blow...

The Dodgers have a plethora of outfielders. They have Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig, Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford. They have one problem. They can't play all of them at the same time. Because of that, don't be surprised if they look into trading one of those four to upgrade other positions.
Rival executives expect the Dodgers to move "at least" one of their elite...
