  5. 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”

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

    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…

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

    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…

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

    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…

  13. 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…

    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…

    Clayton Kershaw tossed 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball and Scott Van Slyke doubled and homered as the Dodgers topped the Diamondbacks 3-1 in Saturday’s opener in Australia. The game, delayed slightly at the onset by some early evening rain, opened with Wade Miley striking out Yasiel Puig on three pitches. The Dodgers struck first…

Puig signed a six-year, $42 million contract with the Dodgers in June of 2012 and remains under contract through 2018, so there’s no…

    Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? You decide. Baseball fans were provided with a heaping slice of awesomeness in this afternoon’s Cactus League matchup between the Dodgers and Angels, as Mike Trout‘s attempt at an inside-the-park home run was dashed thanks in part to a throw from Yasiel Puig.

According to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, Kemp will be allowed to do more baseball drills after an MRI yesterday came back favorable. It’s possible that he’ll start…

    Yasiel Puig Getty

    There are valid reasons for the Dodgers to bat Yasiel Puig leadoff this season, but this logic from manager Don Mattingly is interesting: Mattingly still thinking of Puig as leadoff man, says Puig "hasn't proven himself to be a RBI guy yet."— Dylan Hernandez (@dylanohernandez) February 22, 2014 According to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, Mattingly…
