- I'm a little bit troubled by this. Via Jeff Passan on Yahoo, Jay-Z is apparently courting Yasiel Puig to join his sports management group. I would prefer Puig focus on Baseball instead of marketing. If he continues to perform at the level we hope, I am certain endorsements will come - not that he needs any.
- Bill Plaschke at the LA Times writes, "Someone to watch over Yasiel Puig: The most important member of the Dodgers' lineup? It's Tim Bravo, who watches over hard-living rookie phenom Yasiel Puig day and night."
- Left Field Pavilion makes an awesome fantasy card of Yasiel Puig using the vintage 1958 Topps All-Star card design.
- It looks like the team and new Dodger owners are getting the fans stamp of approval. Via a tweet from the @DodgersPR. BTW, this tweet refers to Tuesday night's game.
KCAL 9 last night attracted the largest audience for a regular season #Dodgers game on any local broadcast or cable outlet since August 2007

- The cover of the 8th edition of the 2013 Dodgers playbill features Yasiel Puig. See it on the right.
- Via Hugh Bernreuter at mlive.com, "Los Angeles Dodgers prospect Leo Rodriguez opens eyes, leads Great Lakes Loons with .306 average".
- Via Ken Gurnick at MLB.com, "WWII vet Patterson is Dodgers' All-Star hero".
David Patterson of Rio Rancho, N.M., will represent the Dodgers as one of 30 winners of the "Tribute for Heroes" campaign, a national initiative of MLB and People Magazine that recognizes veterans and military service members.
Patterson was awarded the Silver Congressional Medal of Honor and is a Native American who took part in every Marine assault in World War II as one of the Navajo Code Talkers.
- This is clearly the strangest news I've heard in awhile. Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, "Josh Beckett injury: Dodgers RHP has rib removed during surgery".
