For a guy who supposedly infuriates his manager and can rub opponents the wrong way unlike any other, Yasiel Puig sure seems to have a lot of fun with his teammates. Tuesday night was Yasiel Puig bobblehead night at Dodger Stadium. This inspired Juan Uribe and Adrian Gonzalez to turn the real Puig into a bobblehead.
While on their way to a 7-1 victory over the Miami Marlins, Gonzalez and Uribe decided to gang up on Puig, who had two hits and an RBI in the game. The following video proves it wasn’t a random assault — at least from Gonzalez.
Again, Puig and his teammates seem to get along just fine. The guy even had a tickle fight with Hyun-Jin Ryu in the dugout last month. I’m sure Puig’s bat flips — especially the ones that come on fly ball outs — can frustrate Don Mattingly and some of the Dodgers players. That doesn’t mean they have no love for the 23-year-old star.
