Yasiel Puig’s tour of destruction has bled into the state of New York, namely; Queens.
Last night, he hit a rocket home run off some poor rookie with a last name that is spelled weird. He bat flipped the shit out of him and then rounded the bases. It was his 10th home run of the young season.
The numbers are piling up rather quickly for the Cuban phenom. He’s doing something basically on a nightly basis that just makes you saw ‘OMG’. His home run last night could have been considered the difference, the Dodgers hung on to a 4-3 win.
As I write this, Charlie Steiner just called him ‘the biggest star in baseball’ and added ‘you simply can’t take your eyes off him’. Pretty accurate.
And arriving on-time was this piece from the New York Times; talking about Puig entertaining his fans and detractors alike. And just wait until you see the catch he made in right field tonight. Unbelievable ballplayer.
