Yasiel Puig, Australia, Cricket, Star Wars, GIF

Yasiel Puig is ready for the season opener in Australia in this Dodgers promo, where he uses a cricket bat as a lightsaber, complete with Star Wars sound effects. Then he makes weird noises.

This puts Puig clearly on the wrong side of the Star Wars / Star Trek debate.

@Omer (beercoozie)  Yeah, $20,000 bonus for going to another country. Yeah, I'd do that every day of the week.

All this nonsense whereby Dodgers are expected to act like they care about Australia is making my bullshit detector work overtime.  Alas, Greinke, the only sanity is a sea of MLB hogwash.

@Lobo @Disgruntled Goat  true, it's also good news; hopefully it becomes a nationwide channel. for my part, if directtv doesn't work it out in a month or so, i'm going to switch to TWC. they are terrible but i want to watch the dodgers.

All of the grit, scrap, hustle, other talent-lacking phrases atop that lineup.
