On Saturday against Andrew Cashner, Yasiel Puig did this on a 3-0 count in the first inning:
I remember tweeting about it and being mildly amused.
Apparently though, Puig has just gotten so bored recently that he decided to employ a lazy leg kick as an actual tactic, as he showed on his game-winning homer yesterday.
I guess he just lost interest in normal hitting, so he decided to try this new timing device … and he ended up hitting a game-winning homer.
1) Does he have ADD? Seriously. Because at this rate he’s going to be batting lefty.
2) I wish I had his talent. Dude threw in a different timing device for fun and then hit a homer to win a game. Wat.
3) He is awesome at baseball.

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.

The game was tied 1-1 when the Dodgers hero stepped to the plate and delivered one of those trademark streamer fly balls into the middle part of those yellow bleachers beyond the Dodgers outfield.
Vin Scully gave his customary home run call – “She is gone” and with that the Dodgers took another game in that glistening park of theirs out in LA. Puig had two hits on the day...
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.
It is baffling that folks still think it is a smart idea to test Yasiel Puig’s arm. The latest victim of the Puig cannon was Rene Rivera who tried to score on an Andrew Cashner’s single. The result was what you would expect it to be.

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...
I’ll be honest, I’m slacking. I’ve been watching college football all day. There wasn’t a lot of baseball on. And NCAA football is the perfect backdrop to doze off to – I’m exhausted from staying up late watching Yasiel Puig slash four hits against the Padres out in Los Angeles like he did last night.
Saturday is the best day of the week and no longer belongs to solely...

Padres 2-1 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.
Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres wasted a brilliant pitching performance from Andrew Cashner in a 2-1 loss to the Dodgers. Cashner gave up just 1 run in 7 innings on 10 hits with 7 K’s, while flirting with 100 mph all night.
Yasiel Puig did some Yasiel Puig...
A day after the Dodgers shelled the Padres, they decided to put up more of a fight this time. Unfortunately they were unable to grab the win in the process despite a solid pitching effort from Andrew Cashner. Both starters in the game essentially matched each other as both Cashner and Chris Capuano pitched seven innings and struck out seven while giving up one run. The Padres bullpen...
Since August first the Padre organization and their fans have gotten a sneak-peak at what may well prove to be an effective starting rotation next season. Youngsters Andrew Cashner and Tyson Ross have shown off their tremendous upsides and are rapidly developing into solid starters with top-of-the-rotation potential. Meanwhile, trade deadline acquisition Ian Kennedy has flashed some...
Hitter of the month:
RF – Will Venable
August totals: 367/395/697 – 4 HR, 9 2B, 20 RBI
This one was pretty easy. The guy who has been frustrating Padre fans for half a decade with his superb talent and a dearth of consistency has finally been consistent. In fact, Venable has been about the only Padre who can make that claim in 2013. With the exception of a rough middle...
