Rockies @ Dodgers April 18, 2015: Puig is Back

All the other news can wait: Yasiel Puig is back! Puig hasn’t played since Monday, resting due to a tight hamstring. After so much confusion in the media reports regarding if he was closer to healthy or to the disabled list, it appears that it’s the former. Hopefully the Dodgers aren’t rushing him, though it’s good to see him back in the lineup. Andre Ethier has actually...

Are the Los Angeles Dodgers the deepest team in baseball?

In the offseason, the Los Angeles Dodgers lost Matt Kemp, Dee Gordon and Hanley Ramirez. So far in 2015, those three are a combined 38-for-114 (.333 average) and have each come up big for their respective teams. For a team to lose one of those players in an offseason would be tough to overcome. All three in the same offseason? It would take a huge team effort to make up for those...

Dodgers 5, Mariners 2: Offense, Joc, TOOTBLAN, And Yasiel Puig’s “Pony”

After falling behind early in every game this series (and seemingly every game this season), the Dodgers jumped on the Mariners for a 5-0 lead in the first three innings. An RBI single from Andre Ethier and a 2-RBI double from Scott Van Slyke in the first inning, an RBI single from Adrian Gonzalez in the second, and an RBI single from Joc Pederson in the third accounted for...

Thankfully, Kim Jin-hyung, who plays outfield for the Korean Baseball Organization’s Doosan Bears, is here to fill the void the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder is going to be leaving.  Somewhere…Batting Stance Guy is smiling.

Yasiel Puig says he’s trying to cut down on his patented bat flips

Keen observers may have been noticing that Yasiel Puig, known for his habit of demonstratively flipping his bat, has seemingly cut down a bit on his flamboyant signature move, something that has become so synonymous with the Los Angeles Dodgers slugger it’s even used as comedic fodder in video games. It turns out it is...Read More The post Yasiel Puig says he’s trying to cut...

Yasiel Puig to cut down on bat flips

Say it ain’t so, Yasiel Puig, say it ain’t so. The Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder did not flip his bat after homering in the fifth inning of Monday’s win over the Seattle Mariners, and he says that is by design. Puig, now in his third season in MLB, says he wants to adapt to the...Read More

Puig is cutting back on bat flips

In some of the most depressing bat flip related news we’ve ever heard, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is going to be making an effort to cut back on his theatric, entertaining bat flips this season. Why? Because he doesn’t want to give off the impression that he’s disrespectful. The LA Times has the quotes. Though acknowledging that some fans are entertained...

Dodgers 3, Diamondbacks 4: At Least Yasiel Puig Played Third

The Dodgers fell to the Diamondbacks three runs to four, which should basically never happen. Brett Anderson turned in a solid start, going six innings and limiting the damage to five hits and a walk while striking out one. It would’ve looked a lot more impressive, however, had one of those hits not been a three-run homer to (who else?) Paul Goldschmidt. Goldschmidt, it should...

Giants analyst calls Yasiel Puig ‘young and dumb’

Giants broadcaster Mike Krukow has never been afraid to say something controversial. Last May, he speculated that the best explanation for Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki hitting .571 at Coors Field was stealing signs. Months later, Krukow accused the Cubs of deliberately preventing its grounds crew from rolling out the tarp during a downpour to nab a rain-shortened 2-0 win...
