+ Yasiel Puig tripled last night in Game Three of the NLCS, with his team down 0-2 in the series, and helped get them the lead. Naturally, this infuriated everyone.
As you can see, he flipped his bat on the hit, setting off an explosion of baseball indignance on the keyboards of the people who honestly care about that sort of thing.
Puig will learn don't give ur opponent any more reason to want to beat u!

Of course, some analysts had some more pressing questions to answer.

+ Ha ha what a fun night, look at that bear dancing on the Dodgers dugout, that's great.
+ Hanley Ramirez has a hairline fracture in his ribs, meaning the Dodgers might need some help at shortstop. And then somehow they went from Plan A, skipped Plan B, and went all the way to Plan Q.

+ Meanwhile, on the other side, a woman who says she's Nick Punto's wife has a bedazzled Nick Punto shirsey. So. Honestly. Who cares if she's actually his wife.
+ Torii Hunter finally got to see footage of him falling over the outfield wall during David Ortiz's grand slam, and he had some strong words for the cop who stood there and cheered.
+ Brazilian basketball star Nene, about to start the season with the Wizards, was booed upon his recent trip home to his native country. Nene declined to play for Brazil in the 2012 Olympics, when the team didn't win a game, and has now chosen not to play for the national team a second time.
Wizards coach Rany Wittman tried to take the blame, but it was too late. The boos had already been registered with the Global Frustration with Athletes Syndicate.
+ Months ago, when former Cardinals slugger Jack Clark announced on his St. Louis-area radio program that he knew for a fact that Albert Pujols had used steroids, he somehow upset a lot of people and was fired.
Now, Pujols is making a statement of his own by suing Clark for defamation, a move sure to corner Clark, whose story is widely disregarded, and force the truth out of him.
No, though. Clark is doubling down and has offered to take a side-by-side lie detector test with Pujols. So hold onto your hats because that is definitely going to happen.
