Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is a real character. From (justified, in my opinion) bat flips, Miami bar fights, and flamboyant arrest videos, he's been a contentious character in both the Dodger's clubhouse and the MLB as a whole. But, his backstory is fascinating, and he's also really, really good. Did you see this throw? How could you not love the guy?

Our curiosity regarding Puig's social media accounts piqued a couple weeks ago, when he crashed a high school prom in Colorado. A couple days after that, Puig welcomed new Ram Jared Goff to Los Angeles via Twitter with an appropriate mix of humor and shade. His use of hashtags are hilarious and delightful, and it appears that Puig's aware of this too because he's been hamming it up on Twitter and Instagram lately. He definitely doesn't seem like the type to hole up in the hotel and order in room service, that's for sure.

The Dodgers have been in Toronto this weekend, and as seen in the photo taken at the city's aquarium above, have had some time to do a little sightseeing in The Six. Here's Puig atop Toronto's CN Tower, where he participated in an "Edge Walk." Hashtag: #PuigNotScared. (Where's Drake though?)
