- Jason Roche at LA Weekly speaks with Puig Destroyer.
"He's a freakish prospect that terrorizes opposing pitchers," Breckenridge says. "He's insanely raw and incredibly talented. He's got all of the tools but he doesn't know how to use all of the tools yet. He plays with a level of energy that is kind of reckless. It fits the style of music that we wanted to play."
- "Unsung First Half Hero: Hyun-jin Ryu," via Mike Petriello at Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness.
- Via Kevin Baxter at the LA Times, "Puig changed clubhouse, but Ramirez changed Dodgers' fortunes".
- Howard Cole at LA Weekly writes, "Meet Aaron Roberts, Dodgers' Representative in the MLB Fan Cave".
- Via Tim Dierkes at MLB Trade Rumors, former Dodger pitcher Derek Lowe has retired.
- Chris Olds at Beckett just released details of their promotional "Beckett Cover Cards" that will be given out at The National, and it includes a mystery card #11. I'd be willing to bet it will be of Yasiel Puig; considering he's on the cover of their most recent Baseball Beckett guide.
- When politics and Baseball collide. Tom Bartsch at Sports Collectors Digest tells us of a new discovery that was uncovered by former White House Chief of Staff John Sununu. There are 2 versions of the 1990 George Bush Topps Baseball card.
- Paul Lucas at Uni Watch tells us how to re-lace a Baseball glove.
- I know there isn't a ESPY for "Best Team Mascot", but there should be. A lion can dream can't he?
