Well I know what Bill Plaschke will be writing about today. That dang Yasiel Puig not running to first on a long fly ball!!!

Yes, Puig clearly thought this ball was in the seats. No, it was not in the seats. It was a long fly ball that drove in a run.

See? Fundamentally sound baseball from Puig. All he needed was the long fly to drive in the run. He got it. That’s execution.

Okay so he stood to admire his not-home-run instead of running hard to first. He got fooled. He thought that one was in the stands.

I know, it’s adorable until it costs the Dodgers a game. I get that.

But it’s still funny.

He’s like, “That one’s…not gone? What? Wha happa? Guys?”

It’s funny. Unless you’re Bill Plaschke. Then it’s the worst thing that happened since Hiroshima.

Plaschke is just the worst. And Puig is just the best.
