  • Brian Wilson signs with Dodgers: Unimaginable and plenty of upside

    Brian Wilson signs with Dodgers: Unimaginable and plenty of upside
    Perhaps you recall, I love Brian Wilson. Alas, the one whose music helped form the backdrop to my youth, not the quirky one who used to close for the San Francisco Giants. Only now in a move so fantastical it somehow fits, Wilson has signed a contract...

  • Yasiel Puig speed control: Dodgers outfielder hires a driver

    Baby, you can drive my car … Ah, Yasiel Puig. A humongous bundle of energy and unpredictability. Talent almost shoots out of his pores. He can do almost anything, which is both good and bad. He can unleash a laser throw to the plate or to...
  • Gamble of pitching Clayton Kershaw pays off for Dodgers

    Gamble of pitching Clayton Kershaw pays off for Dodgers
    They each lifted their dirt-caked sleeves into the air as if raising an entire city above them. Yasiel Puig shot a line drive into the right-field corner, scampering and sliding into second base, leaping up with a howl, throwing his arms high. Juan...
  • Masahiro Tanaka in L.A. for physical to ebb concerns over workload

    It might be somewhat backward, but it makes sense that Japanese free-agent pitcher Masahiro Tanaka is in Los Angeles to have a medical exam. Even though he is only 25, Tanaka already has thrown more innings  (1,315) than any pitcher his age in the...
