Mailbag #10: Comebacks, A-Gon vs. shift, Puig’s power, Giancarlo dreaming

Jorge: The Dodgers don’t seem to have many “comeback” wins and yet are still at the top of the National League. Is this something to be concerned about? The Dodgers have 18 comeback wins on the year, with their biggest being four runs. But I think you’re referring to the fact that they’re 0-45 when trailing after seven and 0-48 when trailing after eight. They’re also...

Yasiel Puig’s reflexes are absurd

After striking out in the third inning against Ian Kennedy, Yasiel Puig slammed his helmet down in the Dodgers dugout. The helmet bounced back at Puig, who caught it with his other arm and tossed it back down again. Sure, it’s not the most incredible thing ever, but Puig’s reflexes are crazy. I guess as a baseball player, they have to be.

Dodgers 8, Padres 6: Ugly win is ugly, and Carl Crawford lives

The night started off poorly for the Dodgers, but the offense showed up to lead them to an 8-6 win over the Padres on Tuesday night. Kevin Correia served up a 3-run home run to Jedd Gyorko (hitting .199 at the time) to give San Diego an early 3-0 lead. It was vintage Correia, unfortunately. He wasn’t nearly as good as he was in his Dodgers’ debut, but he did enough to get the...

Brandon League And Symmetry

One story we have been tracking for most of the season at Dodgers Digest is the resurgence of Brandon League. I wrote a story about him being actually useful in late May, which was a complete surprise at the time. Mike followed up in mid-July, and at that point he was still pretty good. Not elite, but better than most other options in a frustrating bullpen. Given what he was last...
