FG on Fox: What’s Wrong With Yasiel Puig’s Swing?

It seems like forever ago now, but earlier — in this very season! — Yasiel Puig was probably the hottest hitter in baseball. A blistering month of May lifted his OPS into four-digit territory, and articles like, say, this one were getting written: We’re talking about a guy who, through this point in his career, […]

Swinging At The First Pitch Isn’t Yasiel Puig’s Problem

Unsurprisingly, Yasiel Puig‘s massive slump is a big topic of concern these days, and not unfairly so. If you can dig through a lot of the garbage comments around why it is — I won’t repeat them here, but you can probably guess — one of the repeated theories is frustration that he’s not being selective, and swinging at the first pitch too much, and that’s interesting...

Mo’ne Davis Tosses Dodgers’ First Pitch, Signs Baseball For Yasiel Puig (Video)

It wasn’t the pitch-off with Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw that she asked for, but Little League sensation Mo’ne Davis still was able to show off her stuff at Dodger Stadium. The 13-year-old tossed the first pitch before the game against the Washington Nationals on Tuesday, and she delivered a strike (of course) to Dodgers catcher Drew Butera. Your browser does not...

Mo'ne Davis signs ball for Puig, throws out first pitch

Forget dominating the Little League World Series. Forget the national television appearances. Forget the cover of Sports Illustrated. All of those things are great, but you know you’ve really made it to big time superstar status when Yasiel Puig wants your autograph.

Dodgers should place Yasiel Puig on the DL, but they won’t

Yasiel Puig is in a bad slump and he got the night off on Friday. It’s clear he’s hurting and could use a little rest, yet here we are again with the Dodgers refusing to place a clearly injured player on the disabled list. Unlike with Hanley Ramirez, there are viable replacements to fill in for Puig. Joc Pederson is coming up Monday, so why not just send Puig to the DL and let...

Tracking Yasiel Puig’s Power Outage

Yasiel Puig is a candidate to win the National League’s MVP award. His chances have fallen lately, due to a recent slump and a recent hot streak (and, you know, narrative) by Giancarlo Stanton. Clayton Kershaw is in the mix, too. It’s too early to know who will win the award, but what we do know is that Puig is very, very good. Among LA Dodgers with at least 900 plate appearances...

WATCH: Does Yasiel Puig have super powers? It looks like it
