See... Not only is Puig not late, he's way early. Check out proof with the above pic provided by the @Dodgers on twitter.
- Check out a bunch of photos from yesterday's game from Dodger photographer Jon SooHoo here.
- Via Mark Saxon at ESPN, "Juan Uribe is putting it all together, at last".
“Juan’s been good,” Mattingly said. “It seems like he’s not fouling nearly as many balls back and sometimes that is the byproduct of cutting down your swing just a little bit.”
- Listen to David Vassegh's interview with Brian Wilson on "Dodgers on Deck", here.
He opened up about the public fixation with his beard, the hurdles he faced in his rehab to be able to have the opportunity to pitch again in Major League Baseball.

- I guess we should all refer to Andre Ethier as "The Joke". Watch this postgame video of Don Mattingly via Tony Jackson at Dodger Scribe to find out why. Go to the 3:35 mark.
- "Andre Ethier goes from fall guy to spark plug," via Ramona Shelburne at ESPN.
“But I took a step back and realized what this team is capable of doing and where we were headed at the time,” he said. “It was time to get on board and figure out where to fit in.”
- Here is a friendly reminder. If you are interested in attending Clayton Kershaw's ping pong charity even on August 29th then go here for details. This is meant to be a big fundraiser, so please don't get irked at the prices. Individual spectator tickets are $1,000.00.
- Via Jason Gay at the Wall Street Journal, "Can We Please Just Let Puig Be Puig?"
- "Brooklyn Dodger Documentary ‘Branca’s Pitch’ Gets Distribution," via Dave McNary at Variety. Hat Tip: Jon Weisman on twitter.
- Coolest story ever! "Mike Tyson plays ‘Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!!’ for the first time," via Ben Silverman at Plugged In.
To be fair, Tyson clearly has no idea how to play (“My guy’s not moving!”), which explains why he struggled mightily to topple the game’s first opponent, the aptly-named Glass Joe. You’re not supposed to struggle against Glass Joe. His name is GLASS JOE.
- Tommy still has game. Via twitter.
These guys may be in Double A but they play table tennis like a bunch of rookie leaguers. I still got it. pic.twitter.com/PsibuJBCRq
