The Dodgers' season turned around with the recent emergence of young Cuban phenom Yasiel Puig, but there are many who have criticized his attitude and style of play.

For a young rookie who has only been in the major leagues for little more than two months, Puig seems to have a definite excess of moxie.

But there's a fine line between being brash and being obscene.

Puig allegedly shouted an unprovoked expletive at the media on Monday as they congregated in the visiting clubhouse before the Dodgers' game in Miami.

Local Miami reporter and radio host Josh Friedman chronicled the experience on Twitter.

Was Puig over the line on Monday and should there be repercussions for his actions?
