"Puigmania" is already running rampant in Los Angeles. So...why would life be any different for the Dodgers super rookie on his maiden voyage to the Big Apple?
Monday night, Yasiel Puig hit up Jay-Z's 40/40 Club and took part in its tenth anniversary party. And by the looks of it, dude was a hit (get it!) with many of the club's guests.

This is Casey. He just graduated fifth grade. At his graduation, Casey gave a speech talking about a memory from this past year of school. The memory he chose to discuss was when the Giants won the World Series this past season. When Casey said it was his "least favorite memory", there were a couple of gasps in the crowd followed by some laughter and applause. Casey then...
I'm snatching up Matt Kemp cardboard as best I can while he heals from his hamstring injury and continues to work his way back from the serious shoulder injury he suffered last season. I have not and never will forgive the Dodgers for allowing him to play through it, thus exacerbating it. Anyhoo, the latest deal I was able to secure is of the truly unique and one-of-a-kind variety...

The Dodgers wrapped up their 2013 MLB Draft a while ago, but reactions are still rolling in. For the most part, pundits seem to agree that the Dodgers went conservative, electing for low-ceiling, low-risk picks. I felt the same way about the team’s selections, so there’s not much to argue back-and-forth with in that regard.
