By now you’ve probably seen the highlight of Yasiel Puig flipping his bat during Monday night’s game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the St. Louis Cardinals. Puig wound up with a triple on the play, and, more importantly, his celebration has sparked another round of People Being Upset When Yasiel Puig, 22-Year-Old Rookie, Does Things.
So who is upset at Puig this time? Why it’s St. Louis Cardinals right fielder Carlos Beltran:
As a player, I just think he doesn’t know [how to act]. That’s what I think. He really doesn’t know. He must think that he’s still playing somewhere else. He has a lot of passion, no doubt about that — great ability, great talent. I think with time he’ll learn that you’ve got to act with a little bit more calm (ESPN).
Game 4 between the Cardinals and the Dodgers will take place tonight. Make sure to tune in so you too can be irked by a young player having a good time!
