The Cardinals Took Care Not To Celebrate In The Diamondbacks' Pool

The Cardinals found themselves in much the same position as the Dodgers did a year ago: at Chase Field, about to clinch the division. Would they celebrate the same way, by diving into the right-field pool and peeing all over the unwritten rules?

Giants Manager Bruce Bochy And His Son Made MLB History

The San Francisco Giants had one bright spot as the Dodgers drubbed them 17-0 last night. Manager Bruce Bochy and pitcher Brett Bochy became a fun piece of trivia after a pitching change in the sixth inning.

What Baseball's Most Famous Brawl Photo Didn't Show You

It's been 49 years since Giants ace Juan Marichal clocked Dodgers catcher John Roseboro with his bat.

Yasiel Puig Snapped His Bat On A Check Swing

Yasiel Puig can make even a check swing interesting. Puig was initially going to take a hack at Zach Duke's 2-1 pitch in the seventh inning last night, but thought better of it and stopped his hands right in front of him. The portion of the bat not in his hands, however, just kept going and snapped because Puig's… » 8/09/14 12:05pm 8/09/14 12:05pm

Albert Pujols Teaches Yasiel Puig A Lesson About Paying Attention

Yasiel Puig Scores From Second On Fielder's Choice

Yasiel Puig scored from second on a potential around-the-horn double play last night with his ridiculous speed and an acrobatic slide into home plate. Hanley Ramirez hits a ball sharply to third and Luis Valbuena fires to second, as Puig bolts for third.

Jeff Bridges With The Big Lebowski First "Pitch" At Dodger Stadium

The Dude threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Dodger Stadium last night and put a new spin on the event. Instead of throwing the ball, Jeff Bridges bowled it down to home plate where Brian Wilson awaited. Not being into the whole brevity thing, Bridges then asked for the ball back and abided the general rule of… » 8/02/14 11:57am 8/02/14 11:57am

Vin Scully To Return For A 66th Year, Gets Standing Ovation

This is cool. The Dodgers announced Vin Scully was returning in 2015 for a 66th year in the Los Angeles broadcast booth. They showed a pre-taped skit during the game tonight, featuring Hyun-Jin Ryu, Yasiel Puig, and Justin Turner making the announcement. After the video played, the feed turned back to the stadium and… » 7/30/14 1:24am 7/30/14 1:24am
