Found October 14, 2013 on The Nosebleeds:
After Yasiel Puig showcased an epic (but premature) bat flip celebration in Game 3 of the NLCS against him on Monday, Adam Wainwright tried one of his own while at the plate in the top of the sixth inning. It was a little bit too aggressive, however, as the bat was flung all the way to the photographers pit just beside the Dodgers dugout. I know Wainwright isn’t paid to perform at the dish, but this is unacceptable.

Yasiel Puig With the Premature Home Run Celebration

Los Angeles Dodgers star outfielder Yasiel Puig is exciting to watch. The young man has a cannon of an arm and he is dangerous every time he steps up to the plate. Need a tide turning kind of play? This is the guy that will provide it more often than not for the Dodgers. The only knock on him is his immaturity; that's the reason the club sent him to the minors to start the...

Carlos Beltran on Yasiel Puig: He still thinks he’s playing in Cuba

Yasiel Puig Gives Bat Flip for the Ages, Celebrates Triple Like Home Run During Game 3 (GIFs)

Down two games to the Cardinals, Los Angeles didn’t have much to be cocky about in Game 3 of the NLCS, but don’t tell that to Yasiel Puig. The Dodgers star outfielder struggled mightily in the first two games of the series, going 0-for-10 with six strikeouts against St. Louis. The rest of the Dodgers weren’t doing much better, though, hitting just .184 in the series and only...

Offense sparse for Cardinals and Dodgers in NLCS

LOS ANGELES (AP) In a matchup sparse on offense, the Los Angeles Dodgers managed just enough to pull themselves back into the NL Championship Series.

Do Donnie Baseball’s Dodgers Have a Fighting Chance?

The first two games of the National League Championship Series didn’t go according to plan if you’re a Los Angeles Dodgers fan. Sending not only your two best pitchers, but two of the best in the game, one of whom drew the start opposite Joe Kelly, you would expect that at the very least you are heading home all tied up.
