With the MLB Winter Meetings being rather boring and lackluster for Dodger fans, any news about the Boys in Blue is welcome.
Fortunately, there is something on television tonight that Spanish speaking Dodger fans will be able to enjoy. As for non-Spanish speakers, like myself, you might just want to watch it anyway because there isn't any other real news available.
Enrique Aníbal Gutiérrez of Time Warner Cable Deportes sat down with Yasiel Puig for a one-on-one interview, and it will air tonight at 8:30 PM. Go here to watch a promo video.
As a teaser, they shared the following:
In one of many interesting revelations during their conversation, when Puig was asked about how he felt about other sports, he confessed that, “to play, I like baseball. But, if I want to enjoy myself, I’d much rather play soccer or basketball”.Apparently, Puig dreams of being Kobe and Ronaldo.
