When the Dodgers broke camp, Nick Punto didn’t figure to play all that much. He was a 35-year-old utility player on a team with fellow utility players Jerry Hairston Jr. and Skip Schumaker.

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.

And then the strangest thing happened.
The Dodgers lost.
