Podcast: ‘Dugout Blues’ episode 131 – Cy Young debate, Puig DL, Sept. roster

On this episode of “Dugout Blues,” Jared Massey (Dodgers Nation) and I talk rejoice in a pretty good week for the Dodgers. Consider last week was so awful, this was a welcome sight. We recorded before Sunday’s game ended, so we didn’t get a chance to talk about Jake Arrieta‘s no-hitter. Breaking news: He’s really good at pitching. Arrieta improved his Cy Young chances...

Would the Los Angeles Dodgers Trade Yasiel Puig This Offseason?

(Photo by Stephen Dunn/Getty Images) There may be no player in baseball as polarizing as Yasiel Puig. The 24-year-old has already made plenty of headlines (and not always for good reasons) in his short time with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Puig’s potential as a superstar talent has made some of his antics and eye-rolling behavior tolerable to this point, but apparently even the Dodgers...

Yasiel Puig stars in newest This is SportsCenter ad

Now that Yasiel Puig is no longer a walking lightning rod for stodgy old baseball writers who believe in THE UNWRITTEN RULES OF BASEBALL, he can live and function like other normal athletes.  That means a This is SportsCenter commercial for the Dodgers star.  This one centers on Puig as an office worker using walk-up music for a powerpoint presentation in the office.  But the...

Giants analyst calls Yasiel Puig ‘young and dumb’

Giants broadcaster Mike Krukow has never been afraid to say something controversial. Last May, he speculated that the best explanation for Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki hitting .571 at Coors Field was stealing signs. Months later, Krukow accused the Cubs of deliberately preventing its grounds crew from rolling out the tarp during a downpour to nab a rain-shortened 2-0 win...
