Yasiel Puig's New Walk-Up Song Is Perfect Theme Song for MLB's Explosive Star

The only things missing might be fireworks and exploding baseballs. 

For the Win spotted this music video featuring what is apparently the Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig's new walk-up song, entitled "Yasiel Puig." That's a pretty apt title if you ask me. 

Per the report, this stroke of genius comes from rapper Mr. Criminal, who had the good sense to include as much Vin Scully in the song as possible. 

The only thing better may have been Scully spitting rhymes himself, but we will take the voice-over work used in the beginning of the song. 

We have to agree with FTW that this particular walk-up song is the perfect anthem for the Wild Horse. 

It's the musical equivalent of diving for a routine fly ball or trying to stretch a single into a triple. Or, even better, it's like having a 4-for-5 night at the plate a day after getting benched by your manager. 

If you wanted to encapsulate all the ludicrous antics, absurd talent and infectious play that has come to encompass Puig's first season in Major League Baseball, you could do a lot worse than this ditty from Mr. Criminal. 

And really, you will only ever hear the first 10-12 seconds of the song as Puig walks up to the plate to once again amaze and stupefy. 

If you thought Puig was rambunctious to start at-bats before this song, you better watch out. The phenom might not ever again work the count further than the first pitch. 

Now, if we could just get a giant laser show, smoke and explosions before every at-bat, we will have produced an introduction that works perfectly with how Puig's at-bats usually go.
