Puig's game-winner atones for baserunning gaffe

Dave Roberts used the word "crazy" to describe the Dodgers' 6-5 win in 17 innings over the Padres on Sunday. And that was before he revealed that had the game gone another inning, he considered using outfielder Yasiel Puig to pitch. Talk about crazy.

Yasiel Puig’s Other Huge Problem

Last week, Jeff Sullivan showed how easily pitchers can exploit the flaws in Yasiel Puig’s approach right now; simply pitch him away. He’s swinging at something close to two-thirds of the pitches on the outer third of the plate or further outside; the league average on those pitches is roughly half of Puig’s rate. While he’s never been a selective hitter, Puig’s approach...

The Current Simplicity of Pitching to Puig

There’s always a risk that comes with pre-writing. I’m writing this Wednesday afternoon, about Yasiel Puig, even though Puig hasn’t yet begun his game Wednesday night. I can’t know what’s going to happen. Puig might have the game of his life! Or he might hijack a blimp. Life’s a mystery. But what I know is that I’m writing about the Puig who’s batting .235. The Puig...

Yasiel Puig hangs off edge of Toronto’s CN Tower

Yasiel Puig probably caused a lot of Los Angeles Dodgers fans to experience a sensation similar to vertigo when he posted a photograph of himself hanging off the edge of the famed CN Tower in Toronto.
