Is this a warning sign of more issues to come with Yasiel Puig? I certainly hope not. The Dodgers are right fielders are no strangers to controversy, just ask Raul Mondesi. It was reported that Dodgers outfielder, couldn’t quite make it on time to the ballpark in Florida. His teammates were already dressed and ready, but Puig was nowhere to be found. Puig apparently was staying at his Miami home instead of at the Dodger Hotel and stated he was late due to traffic. Manager Don Mattingly issued the fine but wouldn’t give in to how much, “more than a dollar,” he suggested.  Puig, coincidentally is not in the lineup for tonight’s game, so is that an indication? All signs point to “no” at this point. Puig has had some frustrating at bats and several run-ins with umpires as he appears to take every call that doesn’t go his way (correct or not) as a personal vendetta. Speaking of vendetta’s it also appears that he has one against every cut-off man on the team. Hopefully he doesn’t give his post-game interview from the Marlins bullpen, mainly because he has the best arm in there. More to come on Puig and the Dodgers.
