Mid season form… Ummm

I think I might have professed on here before that I have no love for Yasiel Puig. The Dodgers right fielder is an incredible talent, with a ego and attitude even larger. Last season it got so bad that he was sent down to Triple A and was threatened with being traded before the guy finally got it. Yes he has more natural talent in his little toe then maybe a quarter of the guys in the majors so that has never been questioned. His desire, hustle, attention, and drive have been questioned many… many… many times.

So what does this walking side show do in spring training?

Keep his head down and make no waves?

Let his effort on the field do the talking for him?

Man do I wish…

Puig decided to show everyone that he is the man, in spring training by launching a bat into the air after a homerun. Sigh…. Yes Puig batting stance looks much more upright then last season so he has spent some time in the cages in preparation for this season. However it looks like he has spent a lot of time trying to rival Jose Bautista’s epic bat flip.

Puig… It’s spring training dude. Get over yourself and just play the game. Now if you make it to the playoffs, and hit a 2 run homer after getting pelted in the at bat before to win game 5 then you can bat flip till then just play the game and quit showing off.

Thanks to Mets and Islanders fan for the video.
