    Puig Celebration

    Puig celebrated out of the box thinking he hit a homer, but it ended up being an RBI triple. It was extremely clutch for the Dodgers.

    Cardinal players have taken issue to this, ESPN anchors are saying it was wrong (one even said it was against the games code of ethics), and former player Mike Schmidt says the Cardinals pitchers should get one free shot at a hitter.

    Really? Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds, and Mark McGwire all celebrated too early on multiple occasions thinking they had homeruns. We still see it today. And when Puig does it, it's against the games code of ethics?

    Let the kid celebrate. He screwed up earlier in the series striking out with the bags full. Plus, it was a triple AFTER the celebration.

    Oh, and that free hit - the Cardinals got that when they broken Hanley's rib.

    Re: Puig Celebration

    So tired of the people complaining about violators of the unwritten rules. If they aren't written down, they aren't rules. If you want to plunk someone, then plunk someone. Just do it and quit ******* whining about it already.

    Well now that the Braves are out of the playoffs, someone needs to police baseball's unwritten rules.

    I wonder what Brian McCann would of done if he was playing 3B last night. Probably wouldn't of let him get to the base.

    Bunch of cry babies ... If it upsets you that much, then score more runs than the other team and win the series ...

    Re: Puig Celebration

    This is all so dumb. In every other sport you are allowed to celebrate a a big play. In football you see the ridiculous touchdown/sack/first down dances. In soocer, you rip your shirt off and slide across the field. In hockey, you throw yourself against the glass. Hell, celebration has even found its way to golf with golfers pumping their fists. The kid, as a rookie, had a huge hit in the NLCS, let him celebrate.

    Re: Puig Celebration

    Baseball's "unwritten rules" are just about the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Like getting mad at someone because they watched their homerun ball too long. Are you ******* kidding me?

    Re: Puig Celebration

    Another thing I was just thinking - it was probably an inside the park homer if he didn't celebrate out of the box - the Cardinals really shouldn't be mad about anything.

    Re: Puig Celebration

    ESPN noted Carlos Beltran having issues with what Puig did out of the box, and once he reached third. All of this would be a non-issue if Beltran fields the ball cleanly in RF and throws out Puig going into second and never allows him third. I think the Cardinals should be happy he made a bone-headed play out of the box.

    And how many are there? It seems like every time you turn around some salty old ex ball player is telling you what you can and can't do. Plus the fights are hilarious, it's all flailing arms and whifs. MLB fights are like watching a t-ball game.

    Beltran has 16 playoff homers. He has had his glory. Let the young guy do his thing.

    Re: Puig Celebration

    I'm a cardinals fan and they just need to drop it. He already got what he deserved by looking stupid watching a home run ball fall short. He's a bit of a punk kid but play better and you don't have to worry about him being a punk kid. Same thing applies to Bryce Harper.

    Re: Puig Celebration

    Puig needs to grow the eff up, and I wouldn't mind him getting plunked for his cockiness, but I'm also not particularly upset about it. He looked like a ******* when it wasn't even a homer.

    So the solution to keep people from breaking unwritten rules is to throw a baseball at their head the next game. Who wrote that rule.
