We kind of had the feeling Yasiel Puig would do this last night in his first game in Chicago. He seems like the kind of guy who likes to start a weekend early – and start the weekend early he did.
The ball was flying out of Wrigley last night like crazy. The Dodgers won the game 6-4, their 12th straight road win. The highlight was clearly Puig catching this low breaking ball and hitting it deep into the Chicago night. Look where this damn shot lands.
The thing is, Puig looked so terrible on a few swings early on in this at bat. Then he adjusted and crushed it. And that is the quality that reminds me of Manny Ramirez in young Puig.
We’re not going to blog about all his bombs, but we saw this one live; and it put the stamp on another Dodger win. This was just before Kenley Jansen entered in the ninth and blew away the Cubs for his 15th save. Right now this Dodgers team is easily the most dangerous team in baseball. I have no problem attaching my name to that statement.
