BEST OF MAXIM
Yasiel Puig fried a TBS videocamera while celebrating the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Game 4 NLDS victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday. The Cuban outfielder, who delivered a leadoff double in the eighth and scored the tying run on Juan Uribe’s 2-run home run, decided to dump Gatorade on Uribe during the third baseman’s postgame […]
Even when he's not the hero, Yasiel Puig steals the show.
Juan Uribe belted the homer that sent the Los Angeles Dodgers to the NLCS with a 4-3 win over the Atlanta Braves in Game 4 on Monday night, and it was Uribe getting interviewed by Craig Sager after the game.
That's when things got trippy. Puig crashed the interview by tossing Gatorade all over Uribe, Sager and the...
The Dodgers became the first team to secure their place in baseball’s final four Monday night, and they did so in dramatic fashion.
With the Braves leading 3-2 after 7 1/2 innings in Game 4, Yasiel Puig got the L.A. rally going with a double to lead off the bottom of the eighth. After the next batter, Juan Uribe, was unsuccessful on an attempt to bunt Puig to third, manager Don...
After Juan Uribe destroyed a baseball in the eighth inning to give the Dodgers a 4-3 win and advance to the NLCS in Game 4, Yasiel Puig delivered a post-game shower to Uribe while he was being interviewed by Craig Sager. Unfortunately, that shower came at the expense of a TBS camera, which caught some of the splashdown. It turns out cameras don’t work so hot when wet.
I’m surprised this doesn’t happen more.
After the Los Angeles Dodgers eliminated the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS, Yasiel Puig went to give teammate/folk hero Juan Uribe a much deserved gatorade shower.
Unfortunately there was a camera between Uribe and Puig and the Cuban star ended up pouring the gatorade all over the camera, rendering it obsolete.
Yasiel Puig threw Gatorade on Craig Sager and Juan Uribe after the Dodgers won the NLDS. The gatorade scrambled TBS' cameras and made for a weird interview.
Dodgers Yasil Puig was so excited about the Game 4 NLDS victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday, the outfielder wanted to celebrate teammate’s Juan Uribe’s 2-run home run by showering him with Gatorade while he was being interviewed by Craig Sager. Unfortunately, Puig came from behind the camera and ended up giving TBS cameras a shower too.
What comes next? A cartoon come...

They might have to dock Puig’s pay for this.
TBS Camera damaged
The man of the day, Juan Uribe.
Vindicated, in a way.
Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp show why he’s a clubhouse favorite.

I was a bit confused as to how Yasiel Puig destroyed the TBS camera while Juan Uribe was being interviewed last night, as I’ve honestly never seen that happen before.
Well, I was only confused until I saw this picture:
He basically killed everybody in his general area with a behind-the-back, no-look water cooler bomb.
Juan Uribe’s go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning after Clayton Kershaw pitched six innings on short rest Monday night for the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 4-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves that sent them into the National League Championship Series. “It was a good moment for me,” said Uribe, a Giants World Series hero in 2010 with five career postseason homers....
Jose Abreu has made waves for himself akin to Yoenis Cespedes and Yasiel Puig before him as the latest Cuban defector to try his hand at stardom in Major League Baseball. The soon-to-be 27-year-old slugging first baseman profiles as a prolific power hitter with defense that projects to land him as a designated hitter before long.
Abreu has monster power. The Cuban export once smashed...
Cuban defector José Abreu is the most intriguing free agent in baseball this winter. Like recent fellow expats Yoenis Cespedes and Yasiel Puig curiosity exists over what the 26-year-old first baseman will command on the free-agent market and whether he can quickly justify what will likely be an expensive contract.
The Mets could in the market for a first baseman as they decide...
Game 4 of the NLDS provided late heroics from the mighty Dodgers as they rallied their way past the Atlanta Braves thanks to a lead-off double by Yasiel Puig in the bottom of the eighth inning with the Dodgers down a run and Juan Uribe up to the plate. His only responsibility was to bunt Puig over to third base. Well, small ball isn’t Uribe’s strongest suit as...
