Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig has a problem: A 10-year-old St. Louis Cardinals fan who belongs to a family he's close with won't stop trolling him.

Puig said the kid's entire room is red, except for four things that are blue -- because he feels sorry for Puig and the Dodgers, who have been eliminated by the Cardinals in the playoffs in each of the last two seasons.

"He's driving me crazy," Puig told MLB.com. "I have to kick him out of that family."

"His mom calls him 'The Cardinal,'" Puig deadpanned. "We don't even know his name anymore. … I take him to the stadium, I put the tickets under my name, I introduce him to all of my teammates, and he shows up with a Cardinals shirt. He's driving me nuts. I can't win with him. His cousins all have [Dodgers gear]. Not him. We have to do something. I have to make him change his mind. We won the second game and that's it. He cried, and after that, he started laughing at us again."

But all is not lost for Puig in his quest to stop being laughed at by a 10-year-old. It's all part of his motivation to finally get the best of St. Louis, which he said he dreams about "every day."
