Yasiel Puig greeted the New York Mets with a monster of a home run that he hit on a piped fastball in the 4th inning of Wednesday’s game.
Puig had some incentive to admire his work as the Mets had just walked Pederson in an effort to get Yasiel, who they must have thought was going to be the easier out.
As he rounded first base, the Mets first baseman Wilmer Flores had a few words for Yasiel Puig. It appeared that all Puig had to see after that was a verbal version on the one finger salute he gave in Cleveland last week.
Postgame, Flores admitted that the Mets were playing horribly at the moment and did not need something like that happening to them.
Flores: "we're playing horrible right now and we don't need that shit." Said Puig disrespected them. Puig's response? F bomb.

Yasiel agreed. The Mets have been bad.
Yasiel Puig agreed with Wilmer Flores' assessment: The Mets are not playing good baseball.

The Mets Yoenis Cespedes has been known to admire a home run or two but I guess the Mets were only concerned with how Yasiel Puig acts on the baseball diamond.
