Back in ESPN's heyday for quality, the late 90s/early 00's, the network produced a show called Classic Battle Lines where great games were broken down SportsCentury style. One of my favorite episodes of this absolutely wonderful show highlights the first game of the 1988 World Series. The Kirk Gibson Game.
Two fans ran out onto the field at Dodger Stadium tonight midway through the ninth inning, and it appears one of them escaped security by climbing back over the outfield fence. We doubt he got away for long, though.
The first time ever I saw Yasiel Puig was last year in Glendale, Ariz., at a no-account game between the Chicago White Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers that, for reasons no one was clear on, drew 13,721 spectators, the largest crowd in Cactus League history.
Clayton Kershaw is ridiculous. His 1.72 ERA is the eighth best since integration. Three of the better ones came in strike years; another two came in 1968, the year so pitcher-friendly they lowered the mound. [Baseball-Reference]
A couple of months before Yasiel Puig announced himself with three hits and a game-ending Scud missile launched from the warning track in right field in my hometown of Los Angeles, I found myself in his: Cienfuegos, Cuba.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have a little bit of a problem scoring runs. They're 26th among all MLB teams, and it's became notable news when they can accomplish something as trite as scoring twice in a single inning. ("A really strange thing," as the Los Angeles Times called it.) So it seems weird that a team so averse…
Did it seem too good to be true when news hit that Magic Johnson and a series of investors had $2 billion to pay for the Dodgers, to rescue the team from financial ruin? Yup. Two weeks later, it looks too good to be true.
While Manny Ramirez began his hCG-detox in the Suspension Lounge deep within Scott Boras's Orange County compound, his now-abandoned team had to carry on without its lovable floppy-haired, hormone-abusing left fielder.
