So whose fault is it, the manager's or the trainer's or Ethier's?

Catching Vin Scully make the calls for the Puig highlights is baseball at its finest. I hope this guy can continue to impress and spark the Dodgers back into contention. He can't do it alone but I think his presence and buzz around him has immediately turned things around in LA.

All three of them need to go.

....Mattingly..alot of questionable moves already this year
....The trainers...Mark Ellis, Hanley Ramirez, Matt Kemp, Carl Crawford all have missed time due to hamstring injuries. Thats probably due to bad conditioning.
....Andre Ethier...I hear he's a clubhouse cancer and they really don't need him.

So I would get rid of them all.

This is quite a star the Dodgers are gaining. Can't wait to see him tear it up (hopefully).

Puig launches HR #4 in his 4th game to help the Dodgers tie it up.

He gets his first intentional walk in the next AB.

You gotta wonder if his presence in the on deck circle last night caused the pitcher to throw a wild pitch to Uribe to lose the game.

I'd post the link, but the clip is tied to the Gameday application. Puig fired a laser from right field to retire a runner at third base. It was a good of a throw as I've ever seen.

I think you really hit gold in that league. This guy is unreal. I keep thinking he's going to settle down but he never does. I'll give you Kemp and Hamilton for him.
