Rookie Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig's antics during the 2013 NLCS annoy St. Louis Cardinals right fielder Carlos Beltran.

Los Angeles Dodgers rookie outfielder Yasiel Puig's antics has gotten on St. Louis Cardinals right fielder Carlos Beltran's nerves. 

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch describes the typical fire which Puig plays with, more specifically when he tripled in the bottom of the fourth inning in the Dodgers' 3-0 win in Game 3 to close the series gap to 2-1. 

"Almost immediately after Yasiel Puig made contact with a pitch from Adam Wainwright and drove it toward the wall in right field, the Dodgers' rookie outfielder was celebrating.

"He had his fist out, his enthusiasm up, and he didn't stop even afer he realized the ball wasn't going to leave the yard. 

"Several strides from third base he started clapping and applauding his hit that put the Dodgers ahead 2-0 in a game they would win 3-0 on Monday night at Dodger Stadium. When he arrived at third, Puig raised his arms and made gestures to the Dodgers dugout. It was quite a show." 

Beltran wasn't pleased with Puig's theatrics, per ESPN. 

"As a player, I just think he doesn't know (how to act). That's what I think. He really doesn't know. He must think that he's still playing somewhere else.

"He has a lot of passion, no doubt about that -- great ability, great talent. I think with time he'll learn that you've got to act with a little bit more calm.

"When you try to do those things sometimes, you know, you get that attention. And you don't want to wake up nobody. I always thought if you hit a home run off a pitcher, you've got to make him believe he made a mistake. You don't wake him up.

"Or next time, the pitcher's going to be more focused with you and he's going to try harder to get you out. 

"So he will learn. I don't think he's a bad kid. I just think he doesn't know right now." 

Dodgers outfielder Jerry Hairston, Jr. defended his teammate.

"I know, with his exuberance, sometimes the opposing team might not like it. But they've just got to understand, he doesn't mean anything by it. He just wants to do well."

The Dodgers will try to knot the 2013 NLCS at two games apiece with Game 4 at Dodger Stadium on Oct. 15.

Brian Cashman on the Hot Seat If Yankees Miss Playoffs

Aug 30 2014 4:13am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The New York Yankees are not a team accustomed to missing the playoffs, and especially not missing them in consecutive seasons. The last time that happened was 1994 at the end of a 13-year drought that led to Buck Showalter being fired as manager. The Yankees are in danger this season of missing the postseason for the second straight year, and it is entirely likely heads will roll again. The first candidate on t ...

Buehrle’s woes continue against Jeter, Yankees

Aug 29 2014 9:54pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

TORONTO – The savvy of knowing what to say no matter the situation has served Derek Jeter very well over nearly two decades with the New York Yankees, allowing him to sidestep controversy in a city that breeds it, and consistently strike the right tone regardless of the conversation. Friday night, during the session he conducts with local media preceding his final visit to each city on his farewell tou ...

Aug 29 2014 9:43pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

TORONTO — A solid start from Mark Buehrle against a team that’s dominated him his entire career, and Jose Bautista’s third home run in three games were gone to waste in one sloppy inning on Friday as the New York Yankees downed the Toronto Blue Jays 6-3.
