The cool part of the baseball world is hailing this Yasiel Puig bat flip from Saturday night as one of Puig’s greatest bat flips.
It is definitely…vehement.
That is the bat flip of a man who just crushed one 452 feet (or what is now known commonly as Giancarlo Stanton distance).
The wailing you hear is Bill Plaschke crying for the death of baseball’s dignity.
Plaschke and Joe Morgan are in a bar somewhere pounding whiskey shots and grumbling.
“Harmon Killebrew hit 573 home runs and never flipped his bat once!” Joe Morgan cries out in agony.
Plaschke when he sobers up plans to hammer out an entire book about why Puig is ruining the game.
Title: “Yasiel Puig is Ruining the Game of Baseball With Not Caring About the Team and Other Things That Make Bob Costas Want to Kill a Puppy.”
Don Mattingly can’t bench Puig hard enough to please Bill Plaschke. There needs to be a new bench built somewhere outside the stadium where Puig has to go and sit by himself.
