Post-Game 57 Thread: Now Yasiel Him

DODGERS 9, PADRES 7

In only his second game in the majors, Yasiel Puig dazzled. Puig went 3 for 4 with two monster home runs, one to left and the other to right, and 5 RBI. The ensuing Puigasm sent ripples through the sports world and twittersphere, where "Viva Puig" began to trend nationwide.

Some other players did some stuff, but most of us can't remember that through the fog of amazement brought by Puig. Let's face it: Dodger fans were way overdue for some offensive excitement. Enjoy this ride while it lasts.


UPDATE: SoSG Nomo has suggested referring to Puig as Brute 66. Make it stick.

Puig is no turkey.

Dusty's math doesn't add up. 2 for 3 a triple short of a cycle?

Dusty Baker said...

You're right it doesn't. Sorry in a hurry.

Dusty Baker said...

No shit. I didn't even think Spanky could count.

How many custom 66 puig jerseys will be at the stadium this weekend?

Dusty Baker said...

@Dong

No kidding. I've already got an old tee shirt and a black magic marker trying to make my own.

Puig was very guarded with his words after the game. Very humble #puigwatch2013

Yeah. I threw it out on Twitter. Hope it sticks.

"A triple short of a cycle, Puig went 3 for 4 with two monster home runs, one to left and the other to right, and 5 RBI."

So wasn't Puig a triple and a single short of a cycle?

@Gnomes - I dig it too

Manimal from the game thread is good too

Alex Cora said...

I seriously lost my shit when he hit that opposite field homerun. I was on the floor convulsing. I need help.
