Dodgers should place Yasiel Puig on the DL, but they won’t

Yasiel Puig is in a bad slump and he got the night off on Friday. It’s clear he’s hurting and could use a little rest, yet here we are again with the Dodgers refusing to place a clearly injured player on the disabled list. Unlike with Hanley Ramirez, there are viable replacements to fill in for Puig. Joc Pederson is coming up Monday, so why not just send Puig to the DL and let...

After an off-day on Thursday, the Los Angeles Dodgers got plenty of injury news for three players who they are counting in the final month.

The Chad Billingsley Effect Still Lingers Over The Dodgers

No team should have to have Roberto Hernandez, Kevin Correia, and decline-phase Dan Haren in the rotation at the same time. That the Dodgers have done it for a few weeks and managed not only to survive but to thrive is a massive achievement unto itself, but this was never the plan, and that’s why so many wanted to see the Dodgers get David Price or John Lackey or someone before...
