GIF: Yasiel Puig is happy; Hyun-Jin Ryu is tolerant
The Dodgers have been hot lately, and Yasiel Puig, to the possible chagrin of Hyun-jin Ryu, can scarcely contain himself.
Dancing -- the act of surrendering one's body and essence to the beat -- is most often an involuntary action. At times, circumstance and rhythm conspire, and the entire being becomes like a heart -- an organ in thrall to the electric impulses channeled its way. So it is with Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig, who, if left to his own devices, would surely dance until there was no more music in this or any other world.
As for his workaday teammate, Hyun-Jin Ryu, his relentless sense of mission will permit no hip thrusts, no gyrations that would surely make the spectral presence of Ed Sullivan recoil in modesty. Hyun-Jin Ryu, you see, was placed on this earth for two reasons: to pitch and to suffer the ministrations of Yasiel Puig ...
Yasiel Puig would very much like to dance the night away. Hyun-Jin Ryu would very much like to have some warm milk and go to bed.
