Los Angeles Dodgers clinch playoff birth

Thanks to Russell Martin and Jonathon Broxton, the Los Angeles Dodgers are heading back to the postseason. In an awesome coincidence, when former Dodger now Pittsburgh Pirate Russell Martin hit a game-winning three run home run against former Dodger now Milwaukee Brewer Jonathon Broxton, the Dodgers clinched at worst the second NL Wild Card spot. Dodger players don’t seem too...

Topps Comes Through: Matt Kemp and Corey Seager Autos, Redeemed!

I received a very nice mailday from Topps a few months back with a couple of outstanding redemptions. I was very confident one would be returned but the other was up in the air for some time. Well, until Matt Kemp returned all of his redemptions, that is. Oh, what a happy day that was in the PTSIA household.The Kemp is the Orange parallel out of 2013 Topps Tribute and is numbered...

Dodgers do annual rookie ‘dress up’, fans react like idiots

The Dodgers did their annual rookie hazing (now “dress up” for “reasons”) after the Rockies series, and I always enjoy it because of its potential to be hilarious and also because it provides me with pictures to chop and/or post when participating players are doing something dumb later on. Like for Hiroki Kuroda: Or Yasiel Puig: #NeverForget Anyway, apparently this year’s...

Matt Kemp & Yasiel Puig Have Dugout Beef

Just a few weeks before the playoffs start two of the Dodgers stars seem to be having a rift. On Monday night, when teammates Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig should’ve just been celebrating an eight-run inning, Kemp and Puig had dugout beef. Kemp followed Puig across the Dodgers dugout in the decisive sixth inning of the Dodgers’ 11-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies, with Puig occasionally...

Dodgers Teammates Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig Exchange Words In Dugout (Video)

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielders Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig exchanged words in the dugout Monday night, and it’s unlikely those were friendly words. Kemp sought out Puig in the Los Angeles dugout during the Dodgers’ eventual 11-3 win over the Colorado Rockies. From there, it was the veteran outfielder who was doing most of the talking even as most of their teammates were celebrating...

Dodgers 11, Rockies 3: Thank goodness for that 8-run inning

That could have been a lot more stressful/worse/terrible. Instead, it was a relatively easy 11-3 Dodger victory on Monday night in Colorado. With Roberto Hernandez starting, the chances he wouldn’t last long were high — and that’s what happened. But, he limited the damage: 3 2/3 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 HR. Paco Rodriguez relieved him and was able to escape a bases...

Dodgers Injury Update: Matt Kemp replaced as precaution

I'd Take Photoshop Over This.

I quite like Panini -- especially as a major hockey collector -- and their baseball stuff has been good in my book. They don't always hit a home run when it comes to the picture they choose, and this Matt Kemp First Day Proof parallel /10 from 2011 Playoff Contenders misses the mark by quite a bit.Numbered 05/10, I think I saw one once before on eBay and forgot to bid.

Matt Kemp’s Great and Terrible Year

Matt Kemp has had a terrible season. He’s been worth only 0.9 WAR — close enough within the margin of error to refer to him as a “replacement-level player” — and he’s being paid $21 million to do it. He was so awful in center field that the Dodgers removed him from the spot in late […]

Dodgers 9, Dbacks 5: Much-needed offense showed up

It’s always great when Matt Kemp hits a home run, and he did so in the first inning of the Dodgers’ 9-5 win on Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks. The game was never really in doubt, as the dodgers used a 6-run fourth inning to blow the game open. Five Dodgers had two or more hits, including Kemp’s 2-for-4 and Justin Turner‘s 2-for-4 and 2 RBIs. The offense needed to...
