It’s very likely that Yasiel Puig wakes up Tuesday morning (or afternoon) with a sore throat, and from the looks of things, he probably won’t mind.
The Los Angeles Dodgers recently demoted the former All-Star outfielder, and one might assume the 25-year-old would be at least a little broken up over the whole ordeal. Things got ugly, as the Dodgers reportedly shopped the polarizing outfielder before ultimately sending him down just after the Aug. 1 Major League Baseball non-waiver trade deadline.
Now, Puig is kicking it in Triple-A with the Oklahoma City Dodgers, and if his late-night Snapchats on Monday night are any indication, he’s quite all right with the minor league scene.
Puig posted some aggressive videos of him in the clubhouse and then out partying with his new teammates. In one of the earlier videos, he even says, “We lose today, and everybody’s happy” with a bit of a shrug and a smirk.
The OKC Dodgers lost Monday, extending their losing streak to three games. They now have lost eight of their last nine. But if you watch the video below — which contains some NSFW language — you’d think they were in the middle of a lengthy winning streak.
Again, Puig looks to be enjoying himself, judging by his constant — some might say annoying — screaming throughout the second half of the video. And while we mean no disrespect to the good folks of Des Moines, there’s just something so sad about the Des Moines filter being used in a couple of the clips.
Puig went 0-for-3 in Monday’s loss but did have two hits and three RBIs on Sunday for Oklahoma City in his first game since his demotion.
