Even in defeat, Yasiel Puig’s Friday Night Dodger Stadium Bomb thrilled me


I rolled with Yasiel Puig (and Adrian Gonzalez) with a lot of confidence in yesterday’s Daily Fantasy $100,000 Big Score on DraftStreet. I had a feeling all week that late in the night, Yasiel Puig was going to do something big to help me. He profiles as that kind of player. My spider senses were partially correct:

Look at that swing of beauty. Look at where that ball lands. It’s not a moonshot, but it was to a decent part of those yellow bleacher in right-center. Puig has underrated power. I just love watching this guy play. You just knew with a guy out there like Jeremy Lyles (and Lyles has handled himself decently this year) something like this was bound to happen.

The Dodgers would lose the game 5-4 in 11 innings. They’re in a bit of a slide losing four of their last five at home.
