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.

Opinion: There is no good reason for a team to acquire Colon before July 31

Jul 23 2014 1:45pm CDT | Source: mets blog

New York's New WOR 710 Launch Party
Matthew Cerrone, Lead Writer The way I see it, there is no good reason for a team to acquire Bartolo Colon before July 31, unless they’re really, really desperate. Otherwise, they wait, and so do the Mets. Why? I suspect Sandy Alderson took a calculated risk giving Colon a second year on his contract because Alderson felt the Mets would be able to move Bartolo before the end of the season in some way, shape or form. So, if giving him the second year got him to ink the deal, so be it. Well ...

New York Yankees v Cleveland Indians
Currently halfway through the 2014 MLB season, the Yankees find themselves with a mediocre 49-47 record.
