  8. It only took an hour or two for an insanely overheated and unhinged response to Puig being late

    There’s a difference between a player screwing up and a player dooming his team. Puig does one of those things but he is repeatedly accused of doing the other.

  13. Bud Black’s attempted replay challenge deemed “untimely” — which is kind of absurd

    The replay rule has some perverse incentives when it comes to determining whether or not a challenge is “timely”

  14. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 2, 2014, 5:22 AM EDT

    Bochy replay

    Major League Baseball wanted a challenge system for replay. Everyone except Major League Baseball said a challenge system would be flawed and would lead to problems. The Giants-Dbacks game last night showed us exactly what those problems are.

    Unless and until Yasiel Puig is ever talked and written about as a normal human being instead of some scary monster which portends dread and personifies all of our darkest fears, we’re gonna start handing out awards. With apologies to Charles Krauthammer, who coined the term Bush Derangement Syndrome, our awards will commemorate Great Moments…

  18. Yasiel Puig called that team meeting last week, asked teammates for help to get better

    Mar 30, 2014, 2:27 PM EDT

    Yasiel Puig AP

    Narratives are a hell of a thing. A guy pops on the scene as a bit of a showboat, ruffles some feathers and shows some immaturity and it’s so easy to put him in a box. He’s arrogant and entitled and doesn’t know how to Play The Game The Right Way. He needs to be…

  20. Puig, Dodgers have a meeting to clear the air, all claim things are positive

    Mar 27, 2014, 7:45 AM EDT

    Yasiel Puig

    Yesterday, before I wrote that post about how Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times and others are continuing to beat the “Yasiel Puig is a team cancer” drum, I spent a good couple of hours on Twitter having mildly-contentious back-and-forths with some reporters about All Things Puig. The upshot: People on the outside (like…

  21. The “Yasiel Puig is a cancer” narrative is back for the new year

    Bill Plaschke is back to his favorite beat: Yasiel Puig is out of control! He needs a major attitude adjustment! Someone think of the children! Too much there to even begin blockquoting the best bits, so go give it a read. The best part of it all is Plaschke’s dismissal of anything that interferes with…

  22. MRI on Yasiel Puig’s back shows no damage

    Yasiel Puig made an early exit from the Dodgers’ second of two games in Australia with an apparent back injury. The situation did not sit well with Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, who told Mark Saxon of ESPNLosAngeles.com that Puig “grabs something every time he takes a swing and misses.” But some positive news came down the pike…

    The Dodgers left Australia with an early two-game lead over the Diamondbacks in the National League West standings, but the long plane ride home probably won’t have a completely celebratory vibe. Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was removed from Sunday’s 7-5 victory at the Sydney Cricket Ground after appearing to injure himself on a hard swing…

    Diamondbacks starter Trevor Cahill couldn’t overcome his control issues and the Dodgers took advantage in the second and final game played at the Sydney Cricket Grounds in Australia, winning 7-5. They fly back home having swept the D-Backs in the two-game overseas set. The Dodgers rallied for a two-out run in the first inning when…
