Yasiel Puig has a very headline grabbing quote for all of you in Dodger-land. Moreover, Puig talked to Cincinnati.com about the state of his next contract. While Puig was candid in what he wants in the future – he spoke to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer about the past.
Of course, that past extends into his days as a Los Angeles Dodger. In this case, Puig talked about the work ethic of his recent past.
“The last couple of years, I didn’t work hard because I still have a contract to go,” Puig said. “Now, I think work harder than any year of my life.”
This is the ex-girlfriend you were in love with telling you not only that it’s over. No, she’s not just saying to let her go. She’s telling you that she never loved you. And she’s talking about her new guy!
More Puig, for all of you that haven’t had enough.
“If I can sign here, you say?” Puig said. “I don’t know. You been asking the GM if he wants to sign me? If he gives me the money I want, (and) I’m going to be here all the years he wants. I love Ohio. This is my color. I love red.”
This is especially tough for a fellow like myself. A fellow that wrote this emotional piece on the final days of the Wild Horse. I wore my emotions on my sleeve – as Puig wears his now (a red sleeve).
It’s uncouth of the former Los Angeles icon to say he didn’t work hard, and it came down to money. Still, I want to choose to believe that this is simply Puig being scorned or just making headlines like only Puig knows how.
