Untimely Bat-Flip Coverage: Yasiel Puig Singles

Puig Flip Slow

Sometimes a handsome editor of a certain important weblog is by his computer around the same time Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig flips his bat dramatically and amusingly on a single against Philadelphia’s John Lannan. Other times, he (i.e. that same editor) is at his in-laws’ house in northern Michigan and has access to the internet only by means of a hotspot and is also asleep.

In any case, the footage presented above is of Yasiel Puig hitting a single and also flipping his bat from last night.

    The batflip (especially on a single) is starting to grate on me a little.

    I was watching the game and believe he thought it was a dinger off the bat. The ball was a line drive off the wall in right and was only a single because it bounce directly to Delmon Young.

    The Puig stuff is great when it covers actual accomplishments, but FanGraphs seems to be taking the Puig story a bit overboard, to the point of diminishing quality. Carson, you’re an awesome writer. Why write/post this? Are the cheap clicks worth the poorer overall quality? I don’t know if that’s worth it.

        This is not up to NotGraphs quality. I wasn’t expecting a Dave Cameron treatise or sage fantasy advice, but I was expecting more than a Puig GIF and 3 sentences.

          would you have eno sarris not write about beer? dayn perry not write about pickle cars?

          no no. covering puig bat flips is an essential part of the notgraphs mission. this category has earned–and deserves–our respect and attention.

          Carson has been documenting Puig’s bat flips all season long. It’s a running joke. Also, this was posted on Sunday, so he likely just put this together quickly on his own time, partially for his own amusement. It’s totally fine if you don’t think it’s funny, but I don’t think it’s fair to use it as an excuse to trash the author’s talent and dedication.

    Can we just appreciate the gracefulness of this particular bat flip without considering context?

    This might be the finest bat flip young Puig has ever managed to execute.
