Guerrero stands alone as L.A. Dodger

The Dodgers are a storied, proud team. But since the franchise relocated to Los Angeles, no Dodger had ever hit a grand slam with L.A. down 3 runs in the 9th inning or later -- until Alex Guerrero gave them the lead against the Rockies in the top of the 9th. (via Elias)

Karl-Anthony Towns a hot commodity

Chad Ford: "Big men can't do things Towns can do. They're not supposed to. It's not natural. Yet, for 90 minutes, Towns keeps playing more like James Harden than Dwight Howard … What if Howard could shoot, dribble and move the way Harden does? You watch [Towns] over and over again and it feels like someone has tampered with reality." Towns is No. 1 (Insider)
