Dodgers: Cody Bellinger Teased by Yasiel Puig

The Wild Horse is still Wildin’

Cody Bellinger connects at Suntrust Park in Atlanta Georgia.

Cody Bellinger began wearing his socks high the final game in Miami on the Los Angeles Dodgers most recent road trip that ended Sunday in Atlanta. While you may not have noticed, former Dodgers’ outfielder Yasiel Puig did.

Furthermore, Puig commented on Bellinger’s Instagram post on Sunday which asked “Is it pants up or high socks??”. You can see the screen shot of this in the tweet below, and you may want to click to enlarge it.

Of course, Puig replied in typical Wild Horse fashion underneath Bellinger’s post.

“Look stupid.”

Right now, Puig is off to a fabulous start in his latest new beginning with the Cleveland Indians after a huge trade just before the MLB deadline at the end of July. Puig has a slash-line of .370/.424/.611 within his first 14 games in the American League as he attempts to guide Cleveland to the postseason.

Finally, these two were always so much fun to watch until Puig’s end in Los Angeles came abruptly. Clearly, Puig took a liking to Bellinger as he was often seen playfully jabbing at him on the field and in the dugout. When asked if he missed any Dodgers upon his return to Los Angeles, Puig playfully said he missed only Bellinger; because Bellinger was ‘stupid’ like he was.

In closing, call me nostalgic; but there’s just something about the Wild Horse that leaves a little piece of my heart out there for him. It’s good to see that he keeps an eye on his former teammates, at least on Instagram if nothing else. And I agree with Puig – Bellinger should play with the socks lowered.

  1. The Giants Indians are one team I feel like we could beat in the World Series but watch us get owned by them too now

  2. – “Bellinger should play with the socks lowered”…..don’t you mean “with pant legs lowered”?
    .

  3. They will only ever look good on him when he is committed to them. He’s not. They don’t. Puig is committed to those low babies ergo he rocks those low pants AND the high pants when he occasionally wears them as well.

    AIt’s all in the ’tud peeps, all in the ‘tud.

    I miss Puig loads, always will. Anyone who plays baseball with that much love and passion for the game had me from day one and isn’t ever leaving my baseball lovin’ heart. Occasionally now, if we are blowing a team out, or heaven forfend, vice versa, I’ll change over to watch the Indians play just to watch for Puig and something amazing he might do, as he remains not only one of the, if not the most entertaining player to play the game, he is also one of the most exciting players to watch – so many athletic gifts, so little time.

    Rock those low pants Puig, and Belli, go back to long one’s until you really feel it – and even then, I’m not sure your lanky body is quite fit for the short pants, but if you believe ….

    GO DODGERS!

  4. As a big of Puig’s, I am very happy he is doing well with his new team. The Wild Horse always made the game fun to watch. Granter, there were times when he could exasperate all Dodger fans. Keep up the good work – both on the field and off – Mr. Puig. I will always regard you as a Dodger. Go Blue!

  5. It’s not nostalgic, if you miss puig in any shape or form it’s closer to moronic. Puig leaving is the main reason our clubhouse is as cohesive as it has ever been

  6. Although the Dodgers are doing great, they could have been much more exciting with Puig. I miss him every day. I find myself following him first with Cincinnati and now with Cleveland. He makes baseball so much fun. I’m a Dodger fan but the Puig trade was heartbreaking.
