    Joc Pederson had a nice single off a lefty today in the second inning of the futures game, then scored from first on a double.

    Puig held out again.

    • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

      good

      • Adam Luther

        I guess the smartdodgerfan consensus is to hold him out now that he’s banged up…

        • http://www.dodgerthoughts.com/ Jon Weisman

          That was actually my hope before he got hurt. Fun to have him in the spotlight, but better to have him chill for three days.

            Four days of chilling now.

            No.

            Puig did come in as a double switch the night after the DBacks fight.

        True. Another note, its our favorite pitcher Ian Kennedy who gave up the runs in the first.

  • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

    Come on Hanley…bring him home

    • Adam Luther

      Hanley should be a NL All-Star roster addition over Puig. That would make sense to me if Bochy wants to win.

      • http://www.linkmeister.com/wordpress/ Linkmeister

        Same argument against him, though; not enough games played.

        • Adam Luther

          Yes but he’s a “previous veteran All-Star” which is supposedly the two-fold argument against Puig.

    Brian McCann is the replacement for Freddie Freeman.

      He of 179 at bats. Puig’s 148 at bats are just not enough for an all-star, you guys.

        while your point is well-taken, it is traditional to replace players with teammates when possible; in this case Freeman with McCann.

      And now it’s a two run home run instead of solo.

    Dodgers fall behind 3-0, and the recently hot offense has one run in past 21 innings.

      Scoring one run the first 2 games of a series=2 losses most of the time.

      Thanks to Greinke’s brilliance, it didn’t.

    Why wasn’t hanley behind the plate…he needed to remove the bat…Puig could have hurt himself there

  • http://www.linkmeister.com/wordpress/ Linkmeister

    Wouldn’t it be better for Puig to go right back into the dugout and not play in the field? I thought that was the plan before the pinch-hit appearance. I wonder why Mattingly changed his mind. Maybe Puig’s a good lobbyist.

  • Anonymous

    injury delay? – has Puig hurt himself on the single to him?

    Wow – Mattingly gets Fowler called out after he was called safe.

      At least, the ump made a gesture like out. Replay shows Fowler was safe because the ball came out. But now Fowler is staying at first.

    For whatever reason, I found this game incredibly frustrating. All those almost long balls.

      Yeah – Dodgers displayed warning track power over and over today…. frustrating, indeed.

    Perhaps Jon has written on this subject before, but what’s up with Dodger Stadium being the longest since having an All-Star game (1980). Is it MLB or the Dodgers?

    • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

      I heard it wasn’t given to us because of New stadiums, McCourts issues and alternating between NL and AL

      • Anonymous

        Many franchises don’t want the All-Star Game. It’s a headache and it doesn’t really make you any money unless you’ve got a new stadium that you’re trying to market to out-of-town fans.

        Plus McCourt is a d-bag, so MLB wanted no part of him.

      I wondered why Rivera chose to keep 42 when MLB retired it . . . after all, the # is already retired at Yankee Stadium for Jackie. I’m sure they’ll retire it for Rivera, but it doesn’t have the same feel since it already is guaranteed to not be worn again.

        I can’t think of a better guy to be the last to wear #42. A student of the game, a humanitarian, and a Hall of Famer for sure.

    Hey Jon, was that you I heard on NPR this morning talking about Emmy nominations? I wish it was a piece on the second half for the Dodgers, but it brought a little smile to my face when I realized it was you. It’s great to be recognized as an authority on one of your passions and thanks again for all the level headed insight you give to us fans on this site…. especially after that roller coaster of a first half!

    I did an interview on Good Day LA about the Emmys yesterday morning. At the very end, with about 10 seconds left, Steve Edwards asked me my predictions. I didn’t have enough time to formulate a coherent answer, so I said, “Hopefully the Dodgers in the NL West.”
