    Anyway, elderly socialist Bernie Sanders is taking credit for Puig’s achievements this season over batting tips he gave the slugger back in March: Congratulations to @Dodgers and @YasielPuig! Looks like those pointers worked. — Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) October 21, 2018

    Dodgers outfielder's antics are those of one young man's first taste of freedom Before you pile on atop irresponsible diva-punk-jerk Yasiel Puig, absorb a few random stories about the difficulties in his kind of transition: • Luis Castillo once set off a fire alarm in an American hotel, thinking it was a shampoo dispenser... • Rene Arocha felt his knees give -- actually felt faint and almost passed out -- the first time he walked into a grocery store and saw so many aisles of food...
