The Puig Wag Through History

As is amply documented, Brian McCann’s job as Chief of Fun Police has made him a busy man for the past several thousand years. Somewhat less attention has been given by historians to the role of Yasiel Puig. That is now changing, as ongoing scholarship reveals the Cuban sensation to have been present for a surprisingly large number of momentous events. Take heart, Albert Pujols: you are merely the latest to have faced, and ultimately overcome, the Wag of Puig.

    Please allow me to introduce myself
    I’m a man of recent wealth and taste
    I’ve been around for just a season
    Flipped many a bat, laid pitchers to waste

    And I was ’round when Brian McCann
    Had his moment of fun police rage
    Made damn sure that Cashman
    Signed his ass and sealed his fate

    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guess my name
    But what’s puzzling you
    Is the nature of my game

    Matt, isn’t it possible that Puig is telling Adam and/or Eve to forego the two-point conversion in favor of the PAT?

    Not what I was expecting when I came to Notgraphs for hard-hitting coverage of check swing broken bats a la Puig….

    But I will take it…

    Still can’t believe this is going to be gone soon…believe it or not, I have seen NotGraphs influence on Baseball Tonight and the MLB Network. The end of the experiment? I thought we were just beginning!

    Really? I hadn’t heard they were getting rid of notgraphs…my little finger, my little toe they just sort of come with the package why go to the effort to get rid of them even if they are hard to identify as beneficial…why not keep not graphs?
