Once the speedboat navigated the reefs that shield the three-square-mile island and puttered into the docks at Laguna Mak√°x, the last of Puig’s obstacles should have been cleared.

Josh Beckett, Paul Maholm and Hyun-Jin Ryu, in order, will start the three games of the upcoming series in San Francisco, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly announced on Sunday.

  • Dodger Penguin headed to El Teyepac Cafe for the Jerry Reuss signing and shares his experience.  Roberto at Vin Scully is My Homeboy did the same thing here.  I'm working on a review of Reuss's book that hopefully will be done by the end of the week, and an online interview with him the following week.
