Mets gonna Mets, as they say, and this one has so many different...

Dodgers 4, Giants 2: Justin Turner takes a selfie for the Giants

The Dodgers‘ magic number was reduced to one behind Zack Greinke‘s eight stellar innings of two-run ball in which he struck out five, limited the Giants to six hits, and walked none.

Justin Turner Was On A Mission Last Night

Dodgers utility man Justin Turner put on a heck of show last night, seemingly doing everything he could to beat his old teammates. Turner turned two key double plays against the Mets, and was no slouch at the plate singling, doubling, drawing a walk and scoring a run. Turner also stole a base and nearly scored another run if not for a botched suicide squeeze by Dan Haren who failed...

Last season the Dodgers had some of the most talented utility players in the major leagues, including seasoned veterans Skip Schumaker, Jerry Hairston Jr. and Nick Punto.

Report: Dodgers Sign Justin Turner. Finally.

(via) I feel like we’ve been talking about Justin Turner for so long — months, if we’re including the old MSTI — that the fact that news just came out that they have in fact signed him seems more anti-climactic than anything. This seemed pretty obvious a few days ago, when the Dodgers let loose that a signing of an infielder was imminent, that there was just about no one...
