Yasiel Puig isn’t to be outshined by Yoenis Cespedes. The Dodger outfielder nailed another runner on the bases in Sunday afternoon’s game against the Diamondbacks.

He’s 40, he’s from West Virginia and he goes after anyone who criticizes Yasiel Puig. It’s like I’m looking into a mirror.

I took the kids to the Dodgers-Reds game and they saw Yasiel Puig flop about three feet from the second base bag on a caught stealing. Still: beats working.

Collin Cowgill’s walkoff homer in the 14th was something. Yoenis Cespedes’ throw in the eighth was even more something.

There’s been lots of talk about the Dodgers having four big-name outfielders for three starting spots, but while everyone debates how manager Don Mattingly should divvy up the playing time among Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig, Carl Crawford, and Andre Ethier a different outfielder has been the most productive in the bunch.

Lonnie Chisenhall went 5 for 5 with 3 home runs and 9 RBI. Mercy.

After missing one-and-a-half games with a strained hip flexor Yasiel Puig is back in the Dodgers’ starting lineup for tonight’s matchup versus the Reds.

He did not do it while celebrating, hot dogging or bat flipping. He did it sliding. Just goes to show you that conventional baseball is for the friggin’ birds.

Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo has been declared a free agent by MLB and will be represented by Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports as he attempts to land a contract with a team.

Even those who Play The Game The Right Way don’t always play the game the right way.

And no, this isn’t a case of fan-boy hyperbole.

Every man’s gotta have a code. Even a silly, antiquated and contradictory one like baseball players have.

Ryan Howard walked the Phillies off with a three-run homer. Josh Donaldson did the same thing for the Athletics. Really, if you weren’t hitting walkoff three-run homers last night, we don’t want to know you.

Benched yesterday for a fourth straight game, Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp told Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times: “I just want to play, man.”

Mets reliever Carlos Torres isn’t buying the hype regarding Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig.

Yasiel Puig plays the game to have fun. That’s what he’s supposed to do, right?

Boston has lost seven straight. Mark Buehrle has eight wins.

Yasiel Puig is good at baseball.
May 22, 2014, 6:55 AM EDT
Well, that’s something you don’t see every day.
May 21, 2014, 6:54 AM EDT
On HBT Daily yesterday I said Johnny Cueto would give up more than two runs in a game before Masahiro Tanaka got his first loss. Both happened yesterday, but I’m pretty sure the Nats got their third run off Cueto before the Yankees-Cubs game ended, so I’m gonna claim victory.

Yes, I bought my son a Yasiel Puig shirsey. Here’s why.

It’s like they’re not even trying to not give me click-bait these days.

Two homers for Alex Gordon, a triple play for the Rockies and another shellacking of a hapless opponent by the Oakland Athletics.
