Blog Kioks: 8/29/2013 - Dodgers Links - Nolasco, Kemp in Rancho Cucamonga and Puig

Ricky Nolasco was masterful yesterday.  Pic above via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2013.
Since the Dodgers landed Nolasco from the Miami Marlins on July 6, he is 6-1 with a 2.20 ERA. 
“My teammates have been doing a great job of welcoming me here,” Nolasco said after blanking the Cubs. “As far as what the future holds, we’re just going to have to wait and see what happens. I’m from here, and this is where I want to be. We’ll just see what happens.
“(Mattingly) told me I need to prepare well for each pitch. It was the right decision. He felt (Skip) Schumaker could come in and did a better job.”

“Everybody on this team, all these guys, are giving 100 percent. Anybody else can come in and do the job. I am not the best one on the team.”
Personally, I find this whole thing to be overblown.  Mattingly appeared to handle it well, Puig responded maturely and appropriately, and the team looks more united than ever.  Remember, the clubhouse has no responsibility to tell us every gritty detail.  They are not a reality tv show!
