Los Angeles Dodgers are ready for their close-up

Yasiel Puig homers in the Dodgers 3-1 win over the Giants Monday night. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

The NBA and NHL just concluded a very thrilling postseason and sports junkies now have to get their thrills...

Puig Deserves To Be An “Estrella”
