Yasiel Puig Newsbeat

The Mets Are Pissed At Yasiel Puig For Admiring His Homer

Puig’s fourth-inning, three-run homer off of Tyler Pill put L.A. up 5-1, and Puig circled the bases in a dilatory 32.1 seconds, the second-longest trot in the majors this season. In defense, he was distracted by exchanging words with Wilmer Flores at first and then Travis d’Arnaud at home….

Flores said he told Puig to “run the bases.” Puig responded, according to Flores, “Fuck you.”

Between innings, Jose Reyes and Yoenis Cespedes spoke to Puig.

“After I talked to Cespedes, he told me, ‘Try to run a little bit faster,’ and tried to give me some advice,” Puig said through a translator. “I don’t look at it that way, but it is what it is.”

Dodgers’ Yasiel Puig makes pair of obscene gestures to stands after hitting a home run

Probably expressing his protest over the Cleveland logo!

Not shown there for obvious reasons is that Puig flipped the ol’ bird—two of them actually—toward someone or a group of people in the Progressive Field stands. Yes, two very visible middle fingers toward fans.
The gesture happened on Puig’s trip back to the dugout after crossing home plate. The area is very close to the on-deck circle, so we can probably do the math, right? People are all over Puig in the on-deck circle about how much he “sucks,” he hits a two-run home run and reacquaints himself with them.

Well, that’s gonna move the needle. Puig’s already a polarizing player and many people find that gesture offensive. It was plain as day on TV, and it’s a good bet there were kids in the crowd who got at least a very quick glimpse.

Burglars hit Yasiel Puig’s Sherman Oaks home, make off with $170,000 in stolen goods - LA Times

Investigators estimated that $170,000 in jewelry and “other items” were taken from Puig’s residence, though that figure could grow, according to Preciado.

The break-in was the latest in a string of thefts from celebrity homes across the city. Last month, burglars ripped a safe containing $2 million in jewelry from the Brentwood home of singer Alanis Morissette, police said.

Advice from Pujols, Cano pushing Yasiel Puig in right direction - Los Angeles - Dodgers Report- ESPN

“It’s more of a mental thing,” Puig said through an interpreter about the advice he received. “Things that you have to fix yourself. Nobody can do it for you. You have to leave the bad things in the past and continue to work toward the future to get better. Continue to do your job.

“You just have to focus on what you have to do, and if you focus, things get easier,” Puig explained, his eyes wide open, his thinner faced relaxed. “That’s the reason great ballplayers have been successful, like Harper, Trout, Robinson Cano and Pujols. They have seen results because they focus, and that’s what I’m trying to do now.

“I think this year I’m going to play, not to put up stats, but rather to pay them back and to make sure that I follow their advice and make them feel like I was listening. I know that I can be a better person like they are, on and off the field. Not just batting, but being an overall good person.”
