As one may suspect, a game that features two 'seventh-inning' stretches comes with plenty of intrigue, missed opportunities and...

When it was all over, Yasiel Puig and Dave Roberts discussed the highs and lows of Puig’s day after today/tonight’s 17-inning Dodger victory. His ninth-inning baserunning mishap during A.J. Ellis’ bunt was in the back of Puig’s mind when he drove in the game-winning runs, eight innings later, according to The Associated Press: … […]

Dave Roberts used the word "crazy" to describe the Dodgers' 6-5 win in 17 innings over the Padres on Sunday. And that was before he revealed that had the game gone another inning, he considered using outfielder Yasiel Puig to pitch. Talk about crazy.

Last week, Jeff Sullivan showed how easily pitchers can exploit the flaws in Yasiel Puig’s approach right now; simply pitch him away. He’s swinging at something close to two-thirds of the pitches on the outer third of the plate or further outside; the league average on those pitches is roughly half of Puig’s rate. While he’s never been a selective hitter, Puig’s approach...
Bryce Harper is off to an amazing start to the season with 11 homers and 29 RBI’s but more importantly he’s on a mission to “make baseball fun again”. I’m down with that. First it was hats, and now, he has a “Make Baseball Fun Again” sticker on his bat that he showed off during this afternoon’s game against Miami. Neatly placed right on the knob of his bat,...
In the midst of a 7-for-38 slump in the month of May, Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig has now turned to radically experimental measures in an attempt to break out of it. Puig posted the following image to his Twitter account on Friday of he and teammate Enrique Hernandez (himself in an 0-for-17 funk in May) taking their bats into the trainer’s room for some electric stimulation...
There’s always a risk that comes with pre-writing. I’m writing this Wednesday afternoon, about Yasiel Puig, even though Puig hasn’t yet begun his game Wednesday night. I can’t know what’s going to happen. Puig might have the game of his life! Or he might hijack a blimp. Life’s a mystery. But what I know is that I’m writing about the Puig who’s batting .235. The Puig...
Yasiel Puig probably caused a lot of Los Angeles Dodgers fans to experience a sensation similar to vertigo when he posted a photograph of himself hanging off the edge of the famed CN Tower in Toronto. The Dodgers slugger was of course securely harnessed, but such a stunt still likely caused the hearts of Dodgers brass to skip a beat or two. Walked around the #EdgeWalk at the...
Jared Goff admits since being drafted first overall by the Los Angeles Rams that he’s “gotten a lot of grief” for being a lifelong San Francisco Giants fan. But even Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig is apparently willing to let bygones be bygones and welcome Goff into the La La Land fold, even going so far as to forgive the Rams rookie quarterback for a critical tweet about...
