So Yasiel Puig’s antics yesterday made some people mad, because having fun in baseball makes you a terrible person or something.
Though I find it interesting how many people want to give their two cents about this when they ignore other people doing the same types of things all the time.
I wonder what the difference between them are? Not saying, I’m just saying.
Besides, once again, and I’ve always said this, but for a culture so built around machismo, baseball players sure get their feelings hurt over the most asinine ****.
Their standards are always amusing to me, because it’s built around this “be a man” type of rhetoric, but by that logic, shouldn’t opposing players “be a man” and get over it? Grow up, you’re an adult, not a teenager who needs to respond to celebrations you don’t like with violence.
“MOMMY MOMMY THAT MAN HURT MY FEELINGS! CAN I PUNCH HIM IN THE FACE AND MAYBE KILL HIM NOW?”
It’s all quite pathetic.
Here’s the hypocrisy in a nutshell.

Yasiel Puig hits a walk-off home run against my favorite team to give the Dodgers a 1-0 win in extra innings, and he slides into home plate feet first to the arms of his awaiting teammates. I should hate this guy with every inch of my soul. But I don’t.

LOS ANGELES In a game where the Dodgers played for 10 and scoreless innings and set a new franchise record for strikeouts, there's only one player that could possibly come through with the game-winning theatrics: Yasiel Puig.

Everyone has Wil Myers pegged as the next big thing. I don’t know, I’m lukewarm on the guy. He’s going to be a serviceable big league player who has a long and productive career. But I’m not sure he’s ticketed to be a star.
However, there was nothing lukewarm about his past week in the game.
Playing in games 29 through 33 in his big league career, Myers amassed a .455/...

Quote of the Day
”Each player does what he can when he gets to the plate. Some people jump, some people slide, some people run,” Puig said through a translator. ”I have a previous teammate in Cuba that jumped and hurt his ankle. So I decided to slide.”

The Boston Red Sox aim to be good guests at Camden Yards, that’s why a couple of members of the team took it upon themselves to “fix” the dugout phone broken by the teammate David Ortiz.
Ortiz was feeling a little frustrated about a few calls Saturday night against the Orioles, and took his anger out on an innocent bystander. The Sox designated hitter took a couple of cuts...
Ryan Dempster, known as one of the great MLB clubhouse hacks, along with teammate Jonny Gomes had some fun at the Ortiz phone destruction from Saturday night. They “repaired” the phone with a more, uh, crude approach of tin cans and wire. Jenny Dell of NESN had the tweet.

The Atlanta Braves have opened up a substantial lead in the National League East, yet there is the feeling that the Braves are not a formidable team. A big reason for that is the NL East itself. The Braves are the only team in the division with a record above .500. The Braves also have only the 3rd best record in the National League and the Dodgers are the hottest team in baseball...
