The Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks don’t like each other. That was evidenced by the melee that took place during their brawl earlier this season.

The rivalry got a little more feisty last night after Dodgers rookie phenom Yasiel Puig apparently disrespected former D’Back and fellow Cuban great, Luis Gonzalez.

Both Puig and the Dodgers have been on damage control since the story broke, but Diamondback’s catcher Miguel Montero isn’t buying it.

In addition to giving Puig a Dikembe Mutombo finger wag at home plate the other night, Montero suggested Puig needs to stop doing “stupid things”.

Per ArizonaDiamondbacks.com

“Right now, I’m not going to say he’s the best because he hasn’t proved anything yet. Does he have talent? Of course. Does he have the tools? Of course. He’s got so much talent, it’d be really bad if he wasted it doing the stupid things that he’s doing. You have to respect to earn respect. If you don’t respect anybody, you aren’t going to earn respect.”

You can watch the video here and the GIF of Puig getting the no-no finger below:

This comes just a few days after San Francisco Giants closer Sergio Romo and Puig exchanged “kiss” faces after Puig scored the would be winning run.

    Puig may be a 5 tool player but to every Diamondback fan he’s just a TOOL …

    • Brian Martasin

      And your point is what? Snake fan should be more concerned with the fact they’re about to be displaced from 1st place in the division.

  • Jason Cost

    The only tool in this series is Ian Kennedy. Throws at 2 people’s head, gets suspended, then next game plunks Hanley Ramirez? Puig would be the best player on the team if he were a Dback (except for Goldschmidt). And don’t tell me that you wouldn’t love him if he were on your team instead of kicking their butts.
