  1. Hanley Ramirez will start Game 6 of the NLCS after all

    Oct 18, 2013, 8:09 PM EST

    NLCS - St Louis Cardinals v Los Angeles Dodgers

    In the words of Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, shortstop Hanley Ramirez is “worse today”, tweets Jayson Stark. Ramirez has been playing with a cracked rib caused by a 95 MPH Joe Kelly fastball in the first inning of the first game of the NLCS. Ramirez has just two hits (both singles) in 16 trips to…

  3. Jose Abreu skepticism sounds like Yasiel Puig skepticism

    Jose Abreu‘s reported $68 million deal with the White Sox isn’t even official yet and there are already lots of prominent media members questioning whether Chicago over-committed to an “untested” player with some question marks attached. I have no idea. I’ve seen Abreu play a couple times on television, I’ve read the same write-ups everyone…

  5. Tim McCarver tries to have fun with the “unwritten rules,” fails

    Hunter Mahan

    The other night golfer Hunter Mahan, obviously a baseball fan, tweeted something about the unwritten rules hubbub involving Yasiel Puig: If players are so upset at Puig celebrating a triple or clutch hits then get him out. I’m tired of hearing about baseball’s unwritten rules — Hunter Mahan (@HunterMahan) October 15, 2013   That’s the…

  8. You should love the Cardinals because they uphold “strong values”

    Oct 16, 2013, 11:04 AM EST

    Fans are shown as they enter Busch Stadium before the start of play between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 1 of MLB's World Series baseball championship in St. Louis

    The one thing that sorta sucks about the playoffs is how much downtime there is between games. And with downtime people kill time. And a big way to kill time in the playoffs is for fans of one team to hate on fans of another team and all of that garbage.  We see it every…

  9. Parodying anti-Yasiel Puig hysteria is impossible

    Oct 16, 2013, 8:13 AM EST

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Los Angeles Dodgers

    One of these takes on Yasiel Puig is from a legitimately outraged columnist. The other is a parody of an outraged columnist. Don’t hover over or click the links until you’ve guessed which is which. First one: Call me old-school and old-fashioned. Call me too conservative. Tell me to “get with the times.” Whatever. The…

  10. Dodgers put up two runs in dramatic fourth inning

    Oct 15, 2013, 9:40 PM EST

    yasiel puig getty

    We had some drama in the bottom of the fourth inning of this NLCS Game 4 at Dodger Stadium. Cardinals starter Lance Lynn served up a leadoff double to Adrian Gonzalez, a walk to Andre Ethier and then sent what appeared to be a brushback pitch in the direction of Yasiel Puig‘s head. Puig, who…

  13. Shocker: the Cardinals think the Dodgers celebrate too much

    St Louis Cardinals v Los Angeles Dodgers - Game Three

    Sometimes baseball players are criticized for not appreciating that they get paid a lot of money to play a kids’ game. Sometimes they are criticized for realizing that they’re playing a kids’ game and acting accordingly. Just can’t win! That was the case with the Dodgers last night anyway. First, Adrian Gonzalez doubled and was…

    The Cardinals took the first two games of the NLCS and were sitting pretty with their ace Adam Wainwright on the hill tonight, but the Dodgers are suddenly making things interesting. Behind an excellent outing from Hyun-Jin Ryu and long-awaited contributions from some key bats in the lineup, the Dodgers topped the Cardinals 3-0 tonight…

    After dropping the first two games of the NLCS, the Dodgers have grabbed an early lead against the Cardinals in Game 3 behind an RBI double from Adrian Gonzalez and a run-scoring triple from Yasiel Puig.

  17. Down 2-0 in NLCS, Dodgers appear doomed

    Oct 12, 2013, 8:22 PM EST

    Carl Crawford

    Not even 24 hours into a seven-game series, the Dodgers’ World Series hopes are already on life support. By failing to secure either of the first two games with Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw on the mound, they’ve become huge long shots to defeat the Cardinals in the NLCS. If there’s any reason for the…

  18. Yasiel Puig has come up small for the Dodgers in the NLCS

    Oct 12, 2013, 7:05 PM EST

    NLCS - Los Angeles Dodgers v St Louis Cardinals - Game Two

    Cuban superstar Yasiel Puig is the reason why the Dodgers are in the NLCS. The day before he made his Major League debut on June 3, the Dodgers were 23-32 in last place in the NL West. From Puig’s debut through the end of the regular season, they went 69-38 (.645) to win the NL…

    NLCS - Los Angeles Dodgers v St Louis Cardinals - Game Two

    Cardinals starter Michael Wacha turned in a gem, needing only one run of support to help pitch his team past the Dodgers. Wacha shut out the Dodgers over six and two-thirds innings, allowing just five hits and a walk while striking out eight. Jon Jay contributed the game’s only run with a fifth-inning sacrifice fly…

    Don Mattingly AP

    Carlos Beltran delivered the walkoff RBI single in the 13th inning last night to lead the Cardinals to a 3-2 victory over the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLCS, but a number of questionable decisions from Don Mattingly set the events in motion. The first occurred in the top of the eighth inning after…

    Not gonna lie: it’s going to be a bit of a mess trying to graft your narratives on to this year’s LCS matchups and potential World Series matchups, folks.  All of the easy stories about the plucky Pirates, the quasi-homeless A’s and Joe Maddon-as-baseball’s-Phil Jackson are out the window. Everyone’s happy the Braves are gone.…
