Yasiel Puig was 2nd in NL Rookie of the Year voting in 2013 and was an All-Star in 2014, but these days he bats 8th for the Los Angeles Dodgers. On Thursday Puig hit his 8th homer of the season, a 438-foot bomb that he admired the heck out. He held a pose. He walked down the line. He did a two-handed bat flip. It was everything you would possibly want out of a home run celebration. And the Marlins didn’t even throw at him in his next at bat! I feel like we can build on this as a society.
Bobby Portis didn’t sucker punch his teammate.
A harrowing story.
