Reading Between The Seams:
Game 3 of the NLDS was all about LA Dodger left fielder Carl Crawford, who felt pretty good at the plate smacking a three-run shot in the second inning off of Atlanta Braves starter, Julio Teheran. Crawford enjoyed a two hit game while scoring three runs and three RBIs in an offensive explosion by the Dodgers. But in order to win a World Series, one must keep in mind that defense wins championships. In the top of the eighth inning, Braves catcher Brian McCann hit a fly ball down left-field line, Crawford was able to track it down making the tough catch in foul territory. Check out the end of the play:

As you can see, the ump was on point confirming the Crawford catch. When Crawford went tumbling into the stands there had to be a sigh of relief that he didn’t get hurt in the process. Dodgers are already playing without the services of All-Star Matt Kemp and Andre Eithier and LA can ill-afford Carl Crawford getting hurt again with his injury prone self.
Dodgers went on to win game three, 13-6 to take control of the series 2-1 in the best of five.

Yasiel Puig fried a TBS videocamera while celebrating the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Game 4 NLDS victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday. The Cuban outfielder, who delivered a leadoff double in the eighth and scored the tying run on Juan Uribe’s 2-run home run, decided to dump Gatorade on Uribe during the third baseman’s postgame […]
So, that was a pretty good game, no? I had a chance to be
there, but just couldn’t make it work, logistically. Man, am I regret that.
But, all that matters is the Dodgers won and are on their
way to the National League Championship Series.

announced Clayton Kershaw would start on three day’s rest. He responded...

Puig-mania has been fascinating, but is it going to inflate the outfielder’s draft stock too much in 2014?You hear a lot about sample size, particularly when it pertains to Yasiel Puig‘s historic start, but how big is big enough?

The Los Angeles Dodgers really want to close out this National League Division Series. They want to end the series tonight so badly that the club may turn to Clayton Kershaw on short rest. Kershaw pitched game one of the series and has had three days rest.

The Los Angeles Dodgers made a decision that was met with skepticism yesterday afternoon, announcing they would start ace Clayton Kershaw on short rest in an effort to close out the Atlanta Braves in Game 4 of the NLDS. Their decision wound up working, as they advanced past the Braves and to the NLCS with a 4-3 victory.
Yesterday's appearance marked Kershaw's first start...
PAPI!!! Thats is all I could yell at the top of my lungs to the sad, salty, sulking people of San Francisco! In the bottom of the 8th, down 3-2, Juan Uribe... the Uribear... the man who has truly showed up when we needed him time and time again... he made it happen. Juan Uribe squared up to bunt on the first 2 pitches. Then he did this: http://t.co/Lrcvlnz09I...
The Los Angeles Dodgers were flirting with the idea of pitching ace Clayton Kershaw on short rest for Game 4 of the NLDS against the Atlanta Braves on Monday, and they announced that they would be going forward with the plan. While the move may allow them to clinch the series on Monday, I think […]
I’m surprised this doesn’t happen more.
After the Los Angeles Dodgers eliminated the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS, Yasiel Puig went to give teammate/folk hero Juan Uribe a much deserved gatorade shower.
Unfortunately there was a camera between Uribe and Puig and the Cuban star ended up pouring the gatorade all over the camera, rendering it obsolete.
The Dodgers proved that they’re the team to beat in the National League last night, by overcoming an early 2-0 deficit to the Atlanta Braves and a rocky start by Hyun-Jin Ryu in his playoff debut to win 13-6 in the first Dodger Stadium playoff game of 2013.
Julio Teheran came out throwing hard, but was leaving balls down the middle of the plate. The Dodgers...

Dodgers Yasil Puig was so excited about the Game 4 NLDS victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday, the outfielder wanted to celebrate teammate’s Juan Uribe’s 2-run home run by showering him with Gatorade while he was being interviewed by Craig Sager. Unfortunately, Puig came from behind the camera and ended up giving TBS cameras a shower too.
