The Dodgers and Diamondbacks are playing down in Australia in late March, so they’ve both sent reps ahead of time to basically do PR and take an vacation. This has made Kirk Gibson angry at the Dodgers for no real reason, which means I’m guessing Kevin Towers told him to do it. “I’ll give you an example,” Gibson said. “Look ... Read More »

Yasiel Puig, ruiner of the game of baseball, ruins Little League practice by showing up

YasielPuigKids

Forget how excited those kids look, think about Yasiel Puig and how he just showed up at their organized practice, TOOK ALL THE ATTENTION AWAY FROM COACHES, and hogged it all for himself.
