The mercurial Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig has oftentimes been a lightning rod for criticism. While things such as his tardiness and disdain towards his showmanship have previously been made public, revelations in Molly Knight’s new book, The Best Team Money Can Buy, shed light on new indiscretions. Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports writes about a couple of incidents with pitcher...

Finally, the Dodgers didn’t waste yet another brilliant Zack Greinke start and they won by a score of 2-0, escaping Miami with a series win.
Greinke was just his usual dominant self today, going 7-2/3 scoreless innings, striking out six batters and walking one. After today’s outing, his ERA is down to 1.58. That isn’t quite backed up by a 2.85 FIP and 3.27 xFIP, and his BABIP...
I don’t know who Marlins starter Jose Urena is and neither do you, so let’s start with that.
The MLB season is only just reaching the midway point, but people are already starting to buzz about the upcoming offseason. With tons of valuable players becoming free agents, and plenty of teams looking for trades, it will likely be an offseason to remember.
As always, the need for pitching seems to be a key for teams, and this year sees plenty of talented pitchers reaching the...
It happens but once a year. Since 2013, the Orange County Register points out that the Dodgers have lost back-to-back games pitched by Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke only once each season: September 7-8, 2013, August 15-16, 2014, and now June 22-23, 2015. Reliever J.P. Howell admitted that things didn’t look so good after those two losses. Per the Register:“It’s bad any time...

Virginia won the College World Series Wednesday night. As you can see, the celebration featured a top-notch dive.

Everybody poops, but not everybody washes their hands, and Zack Greinke has a problem with that.
The Los Angeles Dodgers is an interesting guy, to say the least, and it’s likely he’ll be a big piece of an upcoming book about the Dodgers.

Molly Knight’s new book about the Dodgers “The Best Team Money Can Buy,” (can debate that at a later date) includes an anecdote about Zack Greinke speaking up at a team meeting.About their bathroom habits.It has to do with a team meeting held as the Dodgers stumbled just prior to clinching the NL West in 2013. Don Mattingly called the meeting and told his charges to loosen...

After starting the season 5-0, Greinke has now gone nine straight starts without a win despite a 1.79 ERA over that stretch.

Grantland’s Jonah Keri wrote today of the Toronto Blue Jays’ season and of them being just two games above .500 despite the league’s best offense, “thank a terrible pitching staff, consisting of a phalanx of mediocre veterans and a bunch of kids who’ve been occasionally good and often terrible.” While that is a pretty honest and accurate description, they have had 19...
We have a tie atop Thursday’s rankings with Zack Greinke and Danny Salazar both checking in at 128.5. Overall there are 16 starters that rate average or better, so it’s a mostly average day.
