Yasiel Puig Finally Has A Tough Day

He is baseball’s newest phenom in terms of position players.  He may have saved Don Mattingly’s job in Los Angeles.  He went on camera and said he was the best Dodger player.  He went on camera and said he was the best-looking Dodger.  Everything was perfect for Yasiel Puig until July 12.

A dozen days into July, Puig was denied the final National League All-Star fan vote, losing out to Braves star Freddie Freeman.  Then, against the Rockies, Puig left the game early with a sore hip.

Things will still be fine for Puig moving forward.  The hip injury doesn’t look serious.  He makes $42 million dollars over the next several years and he will be in plenty of All-Star Games if he stays healthy and productive.

What’s the moral of the story then?  Baseball is a long, tough season, and everyone has a bad day once in a while.

Even Yasiel Puig.
