YASIEL PUIG RUMORS & GOSSIP
In the offseason, the Los Angeles Dodgers lost Matt Kemp, Dee Gordon and Hanley Ramirez.
So far in 2015, those three are a combined 38-for-114 (.333 average) and have each come up big for their respective teams. For a team to lose one of those players in an offseason would be tough to overcome. All three in the same offseason? It would take a huge team effort to make up for those...
After falling behind early in every game this series (and seemingly every game this season), the Dodgers jumped on the Mariners for a 5-0 lead in the first three innings. An RBI single from Andre Ethier and a 2-RBI double from Scott Van Slyke in the first inning, an RBI single from Adrian Gonzalez in the second, and an RBI single from Joc Pederson in the third accounted for...
Tuesday, Yasiel Puig told the Los Angeles Times that he is going to “cut down” on his trademark bat flips.
Thankfully, Kim Jin-hyung, who plays outfield for the Korean Baseball Organization’s Doosan Bears, is here to fill the void the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder is going to be leaving. Somewhere…Batting Stance Guy is smiling.

Keen observers may have been noticing that Yasiel Puig, known for his habit of demonstratively flipping his bat, has seemingly cut down a bit on his flamboyant signature move, something that has become so synonymous with the Los Angeles Dodgers slugger it’s even used as comedic fodder in video games. It turns out it is...Read More

Say it ain’t so, Yasiel Puig, say it ain’t so. The Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder did not flip his bat after homering in the fifth inning of Monday’s win over the Seattle Mariners, and he says that is by design. Puig, now in his third season in MLB, says he wants to adapt to the...Read More
In some of the most depressing bat flip related news we’ve ever heard, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is going to be making an effort to cut back on his theatric, entertaining bat flips this season.
Why? Because he doesn’t want to give off the impression that he’s disrespectful. The LA Times has the quotes.
Though acknowledging that some fans are entertained...
Last night’s game was all kinds of frustrating. The Dodgers had ample opportunities to win, but they couldn’t pull through. Oh, and I know he’s a great player and all, but Paul Goldschmidt is really annoying.
The Dodgers fell to the Diamondbacks three runs to four, which should basically never happen.
Brett Anderson turned in a solid start, going six innings and limiting the damage to five hits and a walk while striking out one. It would’ve looked a lot more impressive, however, had one of those hits not been a three-run homer to (who else?) Paul Goldschmidt. Goldschmidt, it should...
Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig left Thursday night’s spring training game against the Angels after colliding with teammate Howie Kendrick.
The two players were attempting to track down a fly ball which came off the bat of Mike Trout in the fifth inning of the exhibition game. As they neared one another, Puig called Kendrick off. Kendrick attempted to evade him, but it was too...

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...
