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...

One moment the Dodgers are practically tripping over starting pitchers, the next they’re about to send out a call to arms.
Chris Capuano joined Hyun-Jin Ryu on the sideline Friday when he came out in the second inning in Cincinnati with what the...

When the Dodgers take the early lead, they normally win.
Trouble was, little about Friday seemed normal to the Dodgers, except perhaps Hanley Ramirez hitting another home run.
But after Ramirez hit his two-run homer in the first inning, the Dodgers...

And now a voice from the Dodgers’ not-so-distant past.
Scott Van Slyke, who has seemingly spent half his season jettisoning up and down between the Dodgers and the minors this season, was summoned to pinch-hit in the 11th inning Tuesday in game...

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — For a general manager heading into what could be his walk-the-plank year, Jerry Dipoto appears calm and assured. His contract guarantees him nothing beyond next season, and the playoffs have gone on without the Angels...

The Dodgers are long past making the kind of roster moves they’d like to make, so here comes Dee Gordon.
It is not a very attractive development, but the kind a team is forced to make when they’re asking for a show of hands of the healthy...

The Dodgers are rolling now. Hey, when you’re coming off an eight-game losing streak, you embrace anything resembling positive momentum.
That ripple of momentum arrived on a warm Sunday afternoon when the Dodgers downed the Miami Marlins, 5-3,...

Ugh, it’s come to this. The Dodgers, rich with starting pitching when the season began, are now so decimated they’re fishing in the baseball scrap heap.
Brace yourself: The Dodgers have signed Jonathan Sanchez. ...

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...

Get blanked, 7-0, and manage only three hits like the Dodgers did on Friday night, and maybe you think Manager Don Mattingly’s team was completely devoid of his desired true grit.
Not so. It was there in plain sight in the sixth inning when...

The game looked like it wanted to go in dozen different directions all at once, squirming and squealing all over the place, unable to lay claim to anything but a wild ride.
And then the Dodgers suddenly seem to say enough, that they had other things...
