The Dodgers played Sunday like they had Georgia on their minds.

If that clock starts ticking any louder for Andre Ethier, he’ll have a hearing problem to go along with his sore left ankle.
As it is, Ethier remained out of the Dodgers’ lineup Tuesday in San Francisco and the concern has to be growing...

Hmm, what to do, what to do?
I would love to tell you exactly what the right thing is for Manager Don Mattingly to do over the season’s final eight games, but I don’t know. Neither do you nor Mattingly nor anyone else on this planet.

Mr. Kemp, meet Mr. Ramirez.
Manager Don Mattingly did this weird thing prior to Tuesday’s game against the Diamondbacks. He handed in a real, live lineup.
Matt Kemp, the guy they thought was still running too tentatively with that sore hamstring...

On a night when shortstop Hanley Ramirez left the game with hamstring tightness, the Dodgers managed to put together at least one highlight.

The good news for the Dodgers on Monday was Luis Cruz and his .140 batting average was not batting fifth. And that’s pretty much it for the good news.

PITTSBURGH — Manager Don Mattingly said he expects Yasiel Puig to remain in the major leagues for the remainder of the season.
Even when Matt Kemp and Carl Crawford return from the disabled list, Mattingly thinks there will continue to be enough...
