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.
