Turner Ward helping Yasiel Puig succeed | MLB.com

Puig isn’t new and improved. He’s just better than he was, and he can thank Ward for the change of pace. The timing is perfect. The Dodgers and Astros split the first two games of the World Series presented by YouTube TV in Los Angeles, and now the Series shifts to Houston for three games starting Friday.

Speaking of YouTube, did anyone else notice that the YouTube logo behind home plate is positioned with the huge arrow in such a way that the entire television screen looks like a YouTube video loaded up to play? I find it really annoying.

Eh I did not find that quite as annoying as when Joc Pederson's top half disappeared behind the ad superimposed onto the CF fence while fielding a fly ball, or the multiple in-inning commercials.

I remember when Turner Ward was a prospect. Damn, I'm getting old.

I imagine that Turner Ward also has some good advice for this situation, having your body disappear behind the outfield fence.

When I'm in another room and hear one of the in-inning commercials, I think either there's a pitching change or the defense suddenly got out of the inning. Nothing makes sense anymore.

That's a quality post, right there.

Apparently, I am not the only one finding it annoying
