Yasiel Puig hasn’t had an easy start to the 2014 season.
Apr 5, 2014, 1:52 PM EDT
One day after being benched for arriving late, Yasiel Puig is on time and in the lineup today.
Apr 4, 2014, 3:32 PM EDT
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.

And here we go again.

Matt Kemp is ready to return from offseason ankle surgery and join the Dodgers’ lineup.

The replay rule has some perverse incentives when it comes to determining whether or not a challenge is “timely”
Apr 2, 2014, 5:22 AM EDT
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.

Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig drove a 2-1 pitch to the Western Metal Supply Co. building at Petco Park for his first home run of the year Tuesday against Padres starter Ian Kennedy. Quite a teammate, eh?

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…

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…

Scott Miller reports that Matt Kemp says he is 100 percent and ready to be activated from the disabled list as soon as possible. As he was retroactively DL’ed, April 4 is the first day he is eligible to return and appears to be the target. Kemp has been recovering from ankle surgery in October.…

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…
Mar 26, 2014, 5:31 PM EDT
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…
Mar 23, 2014, 2:26 AM EDT
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…

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…
Mar 22, 2014, 6:35 AM EDT
After a slight weather delay, play got underway between the Dodgers and Diamondbacks in Australia just after 5 a.m. EDT this morning, and a long winter officially ended with Wade Miley pitching to Yasiel Puig. Miley went on to strike out Puig on three pitches.

Don Mattingly said he’d do it, and he has. Here’s the Dodgers Opening Day lineup, featuring Yasiel Puig in the leadoff slot: 1. Yasiel Puig RF 2. Justin Turner 2B 3. Hanley Ramirez SS 4. Adrian Gonzalez 1B 5. Scott Van Slyke LF 6. Juan Uribe 3B 7. Andre Ethier CF 8. A.J. Ellis C…

FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig has hired Adam Katz and Andy Mota of Wasserman Media Group as his new agents. He was previously represented by Jaime Torres. 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. In the bottom…
