Mattingly sits Puig: Twitter reaction

Yasiel Puig has been benched for Game 4 in favor of Andre Ethier. Puig is a better player than Ethier; he was better at the plate, and he's better in center field. But he also struck out seven times in a row before his sixth-inning triple in Game 3, before fanning again later in the game. In last year's NLCS against the Cardinals, he fanned 10 times in 23 plate appearances. This isn't about getting the platoon advantage against Shelby Miller, who didn't have any split this season. It's about benching Puig. The general consensus seems to be: Bad move, Don Mattingly.
