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-...

Clearly, Yasiel Puig is not going to do anything in typical fashion. Not his throws, not his baserunning and not being sent to the doghouse. Dramatics are the order of his day, every day.
Puig was benched prior to Tuesday’s game with the Miami...

The lights were wrong and the throws were wrong, and this whole Dodger Stadium thing just looked wrong.
And then suddenly, things went right, things went very, very right.
After falling behind six runs to Cy Young winner David Price and Tampa Bay, the...

About those plans that if Hanley Ramirez didn’t start Tuesday, the Dodgers would just hold him another day to take advantage of Thursday’s off-day?
Turns out, that was Monday’s plan.
On Tuesday, Ramirez remained out of the lineup...

The Dodgers own Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick.
Their starting lineup Sunday had a career .348 batting average, .402 on-base percentage and .596 slugging percentage split against the right-handed Kendrick (7-4, 3.46 earned-run average), who took the...

This post has been updated. See details below.
And then up on the horizon, outlined by a blazing sun, came Hanley Ramirez, Andre Ethier, Carl Crawford and Matt Kemp to the rescue!
OK, would you settle for Yasiel Puig? And Kemp in a reserve role?

Yasiel Puig was held out of the Dodgers' lineup for the second consecutive day, but he made an appearance as a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning of Sunday’s game against the Colorado Rockies.
Puig, who received a rousing ovation when he appeared in...

The Dodgers won in walk-off fashion. And believe it or not, Yasiel Puig had nothing to do with the late-game heroics.
He was standing in the on-deck circle as Juan Uribe stood at the plate with runners on the corners and one out. Braves reliever Anthony...

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...

Were you wondering how the Dodgers would bounce back after losing on the road for the first time in 16 games? Nervous there might be a letdown? A tad too much exhaling?
Fear not, turns out they can lift themselves up from the ashes of a rare defeat very...

It’s not easy to give up only two hits in eight innings and lose, as Hyun-Jin Ryu did Monday night, but then very little comes easily to the Dodgers these days.
Ryu gave up only one hit through six innings, but it happened to be good for a two-run...

Careful now, don’t get too excited. Anyway, try to remember the date and the 47 games still to go and all the strange things that can yet happen.
Are you pulling it off? It can be tough after games like Friday's victory over the Tampa Bay Rays....
