Yasiel Puig predicts Dodgers will sweep Brewers in NLCS
Yasiel Puig is calling his shot ahead of the National League Championship Series.
After his Los Angeles Dodgers advanced to their third straight NLCS with a 6-2 win over the Atlanta Braves on Monday, the star outfielder delivered a bold prediction about the team’s upcoming series against the Milwaukee Brewers. Puig was being interviewed by MLB Network amid a celebration in the locker room when he stated that the Dodgers would not only beat the Brewers but do so in four games to boot. He then went on to declare that the Dodgers would also win the World Series. Take a look:

While there may have been an inebriation factor in play here, it’s still a pretty hot take from the former All-Star Puig. The Brewers just swept their NLDS series against the Colorado Rockies and have not lost a game since Sept. 22, adding up to a total of 11 consecutive victories.
But as for the reason why Puig feels so confident in his team’s chances this postseason, we probably have a good idea.
