Yasiel Puig Interrupts Author’s Sunday to Flip Bat

Puig Flip

The author, whose name roughly translated means something like Paragon of Fun, passed the greater part of his Sunday lakeside about an hour northwest of Madison, Wisconsin, and then a lesser — but still entirely satisfying — part of his Sunday bothering his wife as she made a dinner consisting largely of salmon and wine and kale and wine.

What the author hadn’t planned on, but has been compelled to do, anyway, was capturing and then embedding an animated GIF of Yasiel Puig flipping his bat. But what’s happened is, is the author has captured and now embedded here an animated GIF of Yasiel Puig flipping his bat — in the ninth inning, it turns out, of the Dodgers’ 4-1 victory over the San Franciscans (box)

I’ve come around to the notion that bat flips on singles are the best kind of bat flips, more or less entirely because Puig does them. So awesome.

Bat flip on a single = bush league. Maybe that flys in Cuba, but not in the big leagues. I guess the Dodgers don’t have anyone to teach him the right way to play the game. Hes surrounded by prima donnas like Hanley. No class.

You seem to be lost. Hopefully will help you find your way home.

Leading off the 9th inning of a tie game by getting on base = playing the game the right way.

Using the word “flys” instead of “flies” = not playing the game the right way.

Guess nobody taught you 2 knuckleheads how to play the game correctly either. My High School would’ve benched a player for something like that. My guess is neither of you ever even put on a uniform.

I not only played baseball in high school, they also taught me proper English and the correct context for words. A player might have gotten benched on my team if he did that….assuming he wasn’t the most talented player on the team. Talent doesn’t trump everything, but it definitely trumps something minor like a bat flip.

I suggest you focus more on the Fangraphs portion of the website, as I worry that the Notgraphs portion is going to continue to send your blood pressure to unsafe levels.

Finishing up my MBA degree. On the Dean’s List. But nice try. This isn’t a graded term paper, it’s a lame article on Fangraphs. Do you correct people on Twitter too? Get a life. You’ve got nothing.

Bush League? So flipping his bat out of his hands on a single is now a move reserved for only the lowest forms of Baseball players? You have to have more important things to do than get that upset over this. I just can’t imagine a human being with so little going on that they lose their mind over THIS.

Clearly he also meant Pre-Madonna

Had to laugh at the guy getting his panties in a bunch over a typo- obviously “flies”. My mistake. But you’re seriously trying to “correct” me with “Pre-Madonna”. Lol. Get a life (and a dictionary).

What is the dictionary equivalent of a book that teaches someone how to properly understand sarcasm?

Ask any Hall of Fame player what they think of a bat flip on a single. Guarantee you every one of them will think its crap. It’s clear you guys only know fantasy baseball sitting behind a computer, but you don’t really know the game.

I entirely agree with your opinion on this BLBF (Bush League Bat Flip) Kids making a fool of himself. Better enjoy it now while it lasts. BTW, I’ve never pulled a BLBF on any of my 1,839 career singles.

You lie. I put “Carson Cistulli” through google translate and it does not mean “Paragon of fun.”

Google does, however, have some sexy Italian lady saying your name.

Why is everything in slow motion except for Puig’s swing?

His swing is so fast it looks like a normal swing when it is put into slow motion.

Fun note–in 2011 Brett Lawrie was worth 2.5 WAR over 171 PAs. Puig is at 135 PAs. Will he catch him?

Looks like Puig is going to make a habit of interrupting your Sundays…
