I believe it was that great baseball sage, Daffy Duck, who said of the Dodgers’ bullpen: “What a predicament!”

As much entertainment as Yasiel Puig has provided in his three weeks with the Dodgers, his presence hasn't had a pronounced effect on the team's win-loss record.
Until now, perhaps.
By virtue of a 3-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants at Dodger...

There hasn't been anything like this in Dodgers history, not only in this century but in the last one as well.

They are "Ruthless People," these Dodgers. Nasty enough to "Throw Momma From The Train." So relentless you would think they were "Twins."
Good enough, even, to provide one more starring role for Danny DeVito.

The chair on which General Manager Ned Colletti sits, night after night, at Dodgers home games, once came with a very high temperature. Now, the hot seat is more like a throne.
