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.

Royals Notes: Zimmer, Beltran, Sveum

Oct 27 2014 9:33am CDT | Source: MLB Trade Rumors

After last night’s Game Five loss, the Royals have now faced a 3-2 deficit in all three of the franchise’s World Series appearances.  In 1980, K.C. was eliminated by the Phillies in Game Six and in 1985, the Royals (who were actually down 3-1) came back to defeat the Cardinals and win the Series.  While we wait for Tuesday night’s game, here are some items from Kansas City… Top Royals prospect Kyle Zimmer has left the Arizona Fall League with a shoulder issue and will s ...

Cardinals Notes: Taveras, Pujols, Aldrete, Trades

Oct 13 2014 11:15am CDT | Source: MLB Trade Rumors

The Cardinals’ thrilling 5-4 win over the Giants last night tied the NLCS at a game apiece and also made some postseason history.  As ESPN’s Jayson Stark notes, the Cards became the first team to ever hit home runs in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings of a playoff game.  That final homer, of course, was Kolten Wong‘s walkoff solo shot.  Here’s some more from St. Louis… Oscar Taveras delivered that seventh-inning homer for the Cards last night, though a few issues have made ...

The Hunt For Red-And-Orange October: Cardinals, Giants Have Rich History Of Hostilities

Oct 8 2014 5:25pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

Dodgers-Giants? Cardinals-Cubs? How can either of these be considered the preeminent National League rivalries? For me, now, before, and evermore, it will always be Giants-Cardinals. Of course most of you recall — as most Cardinals and Giants fans certainly do — Matt Holliday’s hard slide into Marco Scutaro that knocked the Giants’ second baseman out of Game 1 of the 2012 NLCS (see above and below). Many say it was a cheap ...
