Yasiel Puig has barely been a warm body since the start of September, but Don Mattingly chose today's potential elimination game to make the change. Puig is out of the lineup, replaced by nonentity Andre Ethier.
Everyone's frustrated in L.A. The Dodgers are in last place, and Don Mattingly's probably out of a job soon. Andre Ethier was ejected in the eighth for arguing balls and strikes, and on his way out nonverbally expressed his displeasure with home plate ump Dan Bellino.
If Ellis wants to blame anyone, it should really be Andre Ethier. If not for his game-tying home run in the bottom of the ninth, Ellis never would have had a chance to hit a single in the bottom of the 11th, driving in the winning run as he capped off a 4-3 Dodgers comeback against the Padres.
In tipster Zachary P.'s estimation, the difference between Andre Ethier's hit streak and Andre Ethier' shit streak is minimal. It is.
Andre Ethier's LAT Magazine photo shoot provided some good fodder for Photoshopping. There were some common motifs, but for the most part, everyone brought something different to the table. Keep sending them in as well; we'll update accordingly.
