    Carl Crawford

    Carl Crawford’s ankle injury led to Matt Kemp coming off the bench and rejoining the Dodgers’ starting lineup, but now that Crawford is ready to return it sounds like he’ll be the one on the bench most days.

    There’s been lots of talk about the Dodgers having four big-name outfielders for three starting spots, but while everyone debates how manager Don Mattingly should divvy up the playing time among Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig, Carl Crawford, and Andre Ethier a different outfielder has been the most productive in the bunch.

    Yasiel Puig

    He did not do it while celebrating, hot dogging or bat flipping. He did it sliding. Just goes to show you that conventional baseball is for the friggin’ birds.

    Last season it wasn’t an issue because at least one player was always hurt, but this season the Dodgers have four very good outfielders for three starting spots with Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp, Carl Crawford, and Andre Ethier.

    NLCS - Los Angeles Dodgers v St Louis Cardinals

    Taking the grandstanding to a whole new level, neither Cardinals starting pitcher Joe Kelly nor Dodgers reserve outfielder Scott Van Slyke chose to return to the dugout after the national anthem prior to Friday’s Game 6.

    Andre Ethier Getty

    Andre Ethier spent the past few days trying to convince the Dodgers and their training staff that he was capable enough of playing through an ankle injury to be an asset in the NLDS and apparently it worked. Ethier has made the opening-round playoff roster, but will likely be limited to pinch-hitting duties after sitting…

    Red Sox 2, Rays 0: Welcome back Clay Buchholz. It’s like you never left. Or at least the early-season version of you never left. Five shutout innings with six strikeouts before making way for a bullpen that was just as stingy. The Red Sox lead in the East is 8.5 games. Padres 8, Phillies 2:…
