And the Dodgers' leading hitter after their first 16 games is 35-year-old Juan Uribe. Of course, just the way everyone had it figured. After two horrible seasons and one sports hernia surgery, Uribe was looking like an incredible bust . He had lost his job to a journeyman infielder, and really, was no longer in the Dodgers' plans. Then given another opportunity, he turned things around nicely last season and was rewarded with another two-year, $15-million deal. Unthinkable a year earlier, and certainly not without risk now at his age. Only now look at him. He's not only picked up where he left off last season (.278, 12 homers, 50 RBI, 22 doubles in 388 at-bats)

Don't expect many surprises when the Latin Grammy Awards are handed out Thursday afternoon and evening at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The leading nominees, including Dominican pop idol Juan Luis Guerra and Colombian rocker Juanes, are among the platinum-selling royalty of the Spanish- and Portuguese-music world, and they're both also churning out some of the richest work of their long careers. Univision will live-broadcast the ceremony starting at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time. Guerra leads all nominees this year with six nods, including for song of the year for his disc "En El Cielo No Hay Hospital" ("In Heaven There Is No Hospital")

KEY MOMENT: In the blooper reels, this one will live on. The Diamondbacks had the potential winning run on third base in the ninth inning, and Dodgers catcher Tim Federowicz stood up for the intentional walk. But reliever Chris Withrow threw the ball over the head of a catcher standing up - yes, a wild pitch on an intentional walk. That would have been the play that cost the Dodgers the game, had Juan Uribe not forced extra innings with a home run in the bottom of the ninth. Instead, Aaron Hill's two-run single off Chris Perez in the 12th inning won the game for Arizona.

A few songs into Juanes' Sunday night concert at Staples Center, a stooped older man in a red sweater ? at least 75 by my reckoning ? shuffled into a center aisle and started pumping his fist in the air with the fervor of a guerrilla fighter. Juanes can have that effect on people. The Colombian rock star has been dubbed the Latin American Bono, and with good reason. Like the mystically rabble-rousing U2 frontman, he has attached himself to a plethora of political and humanitarian causes, particularly those focused on his war-torn South American homeland.

It's official: Juanes, the Colombian pop superstar, will perform at the Grammy Awards show. His presence, though hardly surprising, likely will give the broadcast a ratings boost with Latino viewers. He also performed Wednesday evening at USC as part of the fourth annual "Grammy in the Schools Live! - A Celebration of Music & Education," which showcased several high school music-training and education initiatives that are supported by the Grammy Foundation.  PHOTOS:  Top nominees  |  Snubs & surprises  |  Nominations concert  |  Full coverage Juanes' chart-topping record "MTV: Unplugged," which won last year's Latin Grammy album of the Year, is a leading contender to win the Grammy prize for Latin pop album.

The list of guest presenters at Tuesday's Latin Grammy Awards nominations has been announced, including Juanes, Maria Barracuda, Shaila Dúrcal and Kany García. If Pop & Hiss were a betting blog, I'd gamble my mortgage that some of those presenters also will be among the winners when the Latin Grammys are handed out in Las Vegas in November. In 2011, the presenters provided a pretty good tip-off as to who was going to carry home a statuette. Residente and Visitante of Calle 13 headlined last year's group, earning a record 12 nominations themselves, and a few weeks later the Puerto Rican duo ended up carting off practically everything that wasn't nailed to the floor, including "Album of the Year" -- and deservedly so. This year, Juanes, a 17-time Latin Grammy winner, is a shoo-in nominee for his disc "Juanes MTV Unplugged," which reached No. 1 on Billboard's Latin Albums chart.

LAS VEGAS -- Colombian rock superstar Juanes won the Album of the Year trophy for “Juanes MTV Unplugged” at the XIII Annual Latin Grammy Awards on Thursday evening in Las Vegas, and the Mexico City sibling pop duo Jesse y Joy (that's Jesse and Joy, to English speakers) won both Record of the Year and Song of the Year for their melancholy, down-tempo lover's lament “¡Corre!” (Run!). Certifying their swift rise from upstarts to establishment pros, Jesse y Joy, who were voted Best New Artist in 2007, this year also won for Best Contemporary Pop Vocal Album for “¿Con Quién Se Queda El Perro?

He's got a fashion-model wife and three cute, bouncy kids. He's renting a mansion in the Hollywood Hills. And his current album hit No. 1 on the Latin pop charts earlier this year. This is what a midlife crisis looks like when you are Juanes. The Colombian rock star, who turned 40 this month, smiles when a reporter asks about the much-publicized rough patch he endured recently. Today, Juanes says, things are going much better, and not only because he's in Los Angeles this weekend playing back-to-back concerts Friday and Saturday at the Hollywood Bowl.

Rock 'n' roll autobiographies and memoirs have become a growth industry lately, with the likes of Keith Richards, Patti Smith, Rod Stewart et al. spilling their tales of vinyl glory in print.

PHOTOS: Iconic rock guitars and their owners Juanes' tome, titled "Persiguiendo el sol" or "Chasing the Sun," promises to chronicle "the challenges of his youth" and his entry into the music world.

Juan Pablo Montoya celebrated his return to Long Beach after 14 years with a fourth-place finish. Montoya won the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach in 1999 but then left for Formula One racing in 2001 and, six years later, NASCAR stock car racing. He's back in IndyCar with Team Penske. The Colombian started 16th, was sent to the back of the 23-car field for improperly entering the pits when they were closed but then gained several spots thanks to a multicar crash midway through the race.

PHOENIX - Clayton Kershaw and Brian Wilson might be on the disabled list because of the Dodgers' shortened spring training before they opened the season in Australia, but the team's hitters appear to be completely unaffected. The Dodgers are alone in first place in the National League West, in large part because of their offense, which had another spectacular day Sunday in an 8-6, sweep-sealing victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field. Adrian Gonzalez homered for the fourth consecutive game, Matt Kemp and Juan Uribe also belted home runs, and Dee Gordon swiped a career-high four bases.

Juan Pablo Montoya leaned his back against a wall, adjusted his sunglasses and waited for the next reporter to put a camera or voice recorder in front of him. It was media day for drivers in Sunday's Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. And though it's been 14 years since Montoya raced in the event, he was the center of attention. Montoya is the prodigal son who has returned with fanfare to the Verizon IndyCar Series after stints in Formula One and, for the last seven years, NASCAR stock car racing.

Juan Manuel Marquez says he doesn't view Mike Alvarado as the beaten-up puncher the rest of us might picture. “I need to be at my best because this will be the best Mike Alvarado we have seen,” Marquez told The Times in a telephone interview from the Forum in Inglewood, where he'll return to fight May 17 on HBO. The 40-year-old Marquez (55-7-1, 40 knockouts) says he's prepared for a desperate welterweight opponent in Alvarado (34-2, 23 KOs), who's out to avoid a career-threatening third loss in four fights.

Morgan's Rock Hacienda and Ecolodge in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, is the best place I've stayed in Central America. There are 15 exquisite bungalows set in a 4,000-acre jungle. We had the entire beach to ourselves, where we rode horses. The kids also toured the farm where they milked cows and took the eggs from the hen and made a wonderful breakfast (hands-on cooking, where they learned to make tortillas from scratch). We went on beautiful rain-forest hikes and dined at its wonderful restaurant - really had it all in one spot.

 With nine returning starters from a City Section Division I semifinalist team, Banning was expected to do well this season, and the Pilots sent a message on Monday night that they intend to be a title contender after a 3-2 victory over defending champion San Fernando. Juan Gallardo's three-run home run in the fifth inning wiped out a 2-0 deficit and enabled Banning (4-2) to inflict a rare defeat on All-City pitcher Alonzo Garcia, whose career record is 24-4. Justin Yanez, a junior pitcher, struck out 10 and allowed four hits.

Can we get a slow clap going for Jason Mesnick? After five long years, he is no longer the most hated man in the history of "The Bachelor. " That title now belongs to none other than El Bachelor himself, Mr. Juan Pablo Galavis. It was hard-won, to be sure. Jason set the bar pretty high -- proposing to one girl on the finale only to dump her on national television weeks later and subsequently marry his runner-up? And yet somehow good ol' JuanPabs managed to top Mesnick. Congratulations, sir. From the beginning, I didn't have a good feeling about JuanPabs.
