After blowing a save against the Rangers in 2016, Astros reliever Ken Giles famously said his team was going to "put them to the ground."

Perhaps after his outburst Tuesday night at Minute Maid Park, the Astros should think about putting him down. Give him a few days of R&R. Something.

After giving up a ninth-inning, three-run homer to the Yankees' Gary Sanchez, Astros manager A.J. Hinch pulled Giles from the game. Giles, who took the loss, was beside himself and punched the right side of his face as he walked to the dugout. Once in the dugout he slammed a bat to the ground and kicked it.

Let's hope he doesn't have a dog at home.
