Yasiel Puig has made a splash in Major League Baseball — for both good reasons and bad — since he debuted in June, and now he’s finally gotten his own theme music.
On Tuesday, the outfielder debuted his new walk-up song at Dodger Stadium. The ditty is an original song by a rapper named Mr. Criminal, and it’s called “Yasiel Puig.”
The lyrics (loosely translated, here) go something like:
“For all of my latinos, united/raise your hands/representing for all my Cubans, Dominicans, Mexicans, Argentines, Ecuadorians
“Mr. Criminal with that style/I’m coming to bat/I’m coming to swing
“Number one in the major league/from the bottom to the top/It’s that homie, Yasiel Puig”
And, well, you get the point. Listen to the song for yourself in the video below.

Yasiel Puig is a bit of a diva. Heck, if you spent the majority of your life on a tiny communist island then to become a millionaire before the age of 25 you’d be one too.
But with that said, what in the blue hell is a music video entrance? Players are known to pick music to step up to bat to, usually a five to ten second sample of a song to get them in the zone.

Yasiel Puig probably could have played last night in the Los Angeles Dodgers' win over the Colorado Rockies. However, he is not quite 100 percent. Rather than rush him back, the Dodgers gave him the night off and they will re-evaluate today. With a comfortable lead in the division race, Los Angeles has the luxury of trying to get their players as healthy as possible.

I am stealing a segment from Real Time with Bill Maher – New Rule: no more running on Yasiel Puig.
So Saturday night San Diego Padres pitcher Andrew Cashner hit a single to right field which made Rene Rivera commit to running to home plate from second base. Keep in mind that there were already two outs with the Padres up 1-0 so maybe it could be argued that Rivera should have stayed...
