This Yasiel Puig guy can’t be stopped. The rookie phenom for the Los Angeles Dodgers just hit a walk off homer in extra innings — and then put an exclamation point on his feat by sliding into home plate. This will probably ruffle some feathers but I can’t help but root for this native of Cuba.
Here’s the GIF of the slide:
Veterans hate this kid — but it’s mostly jealousy. This guy hopped the ocean and instantly became a superstar. He’s hitting .377 to go along with 10 homers in less than 50 games. He probably has forced himself into the NL MVP conversation. It’s just mind-boggling how great he’s been.
Yasiel Puig is a beast. The sooner others realize that and stop being jealous, the better for all of us.
