Yasiel Puig plays with reckless abandon. It’s wild, it’s powerful and it’s exciting.
But it can also be dangerous.
After hitting a chopper back over the pitcher’s mound in the eighth inning Saturday night, the Dodgers rookie...

The palpable frustration is creeping back for the Dodgers as Puigmania slowly loses its freshness.
The images were clear Sunday: Adrian Gonzalez staring blankly at the baseball in his left hand after making an error that led to four runs in the third...

Will we ever see the Giants coming?
The team Brian Sabean and Bruce Bochy put together since saying goodbye to Barry Bonds is the only National League team to win the World Series twice within three seasons since the Big Red Machine, yet the Giants...

Yes, Yasiel Puig will have nights like that.
And nights like this.
One night after the Dodgers' rookie right-fielder came down to earth with an 0-for-4, two-strikeout performance, he headed back out to orbit by blasting a grand-slam home run in a 5-...

In his last at-bat of the Dodgers’ 5-0 win over the Braves on Thursday night, Skip Schumaker smacked the first pitch he saw from reliever Cory Gearrin up the middle to extend his career-best hitting streak to 13 games.

The Dodgers won in walk-off fashion. And believe it or not, Yasiel Puig had nothing to do with the late-game heroics.

1. Cardinals (2): They haven't lost a series in May, with a win over Clayton Kershaw on Sunday their latest achievement. Their pitching depth is being tested, but they still have Michael Wacha in the wings. That's impressive.

This time the Dodgers are not going to dance around with Matt Kemp and his hamstring issue. This time they wasted no time in placing him on the disabled list.
Kemp strained his right hamstring Wednesday night chasing down a Mike Trout hit in the gap and...

Before starting a three-game series in Denver on Friday, the Dodgers, as expected, made a roster move.
Just not the one anticipated, unless your memory goes back to spring training. The Dodgers called up a minor leaguer, only not one named Yasiel Puig...

Seems it was a bad night for grit and fight.
Certainly Friday didn’t offer much for left-hander Chris Capuano, or for Dodgers news, unless you count another loss. Suppose you have to.
The Dodgers went ever so meekly against the Cardinals and...

Matt Kemp was not in the Dodgers' starting lineup Sunday, one day after expressing his anger about being removed from Saturday's game as part of a double-switch.
Manager Don Mattingly called the move "a baseball decision" and said the benching was not...

The Dodgers have bullpen problems and hitting with runners in scoring position problems and health in the rotation problems.
And one other little thing: They’re a lousy defensive team.
This defensive trouble might come as a surprise. All three...
