I happen to think Puig was perfectly within his rights to fly off the handle Tuesday night. But that’s not to suggest there aren’t reasons to fret that he is a ticking time bomb in the Dodgers clubhouse.
After his past two games, Puig has refused to speak with reporters. It kind of sounds like no big deal. He hasn’t had much to say anyway and the questions would have undoubtedly been repetitive.
But it’s a bit troubling that, at age 22, with less than two weeks of service time, he thinks he can dictate the terms of his employment. I watched as a veteran team publicist—one who used to work with Fernando Valenzuela when he was in far more demand than this young player is—calmly tried to persuade Puig, through his translator, to change his mind. No dice.
Stand down, it’s just a whiny reporter.
