Behold! My skills!
To reenact the scene where Mo Vaughn tackles George Bell to protect Aaron Sele.
Seriously though, apparently something like this is likely to happen, but should it?
While I understand the emotions as much as anybody, the Dodgers will unfairly never get actual retribution for Carlos Quentin being an idiot, and getting Stephen Fife ejected in the first inning is only going to destroy an already weakened pen. Hardly seems worth it for a team that has enough problems as it is.
Speaking of Yasiel Puig, I was going to write a serious piece about him, but I feel that Jon Weisman basically covered all the bases on this.
It never ceases to amaze me how many baseball fans act as if they’ve never seen a player slump, much less struggle to recover from surgery. They expect straight lines. I don’t know why, because in baseball, they don’t exist. The only straight lines in baseball go from home plate toward the right-field and left-field corners.

WELCOME TO THE SHOW
With Matt Kemp still on the DL, the Dodgers have decided to call up 22-year-old Yasiel Puig in hopes of giving their offense a bit of a boost.

All I can say is he is incredible! Dodger fans finally have something to cheer for. They may have just landed their own version of Mike Trout. The best thing that has happen to the LA may be the injuries to Matt Kemp and Carl Crawford. Los Angeles was force to call for some help and who better to bring a spark to an under...

Stults gave up home runs to Adrian Gonzalez and Scott Van Slyke, and rookie Yasiel Puig's pinpoint throw from right field completed a game-ending double play in San Diego's 2-1 loss against...
Yoenis Cespedes hit two home runs for the A's Tuesday night. Yasiel Puig hit two home runs for the Dodgers. Yu Darvish didn't pitch, but no matter, he's still on pace for 320+ strikeouts this year.
The Cubs' plan following the 2011 season was to make a run at a slew of international free agents. That started with Darvish, an Iranian-Japanese phenom whose posting...
