Yasiel Puig, You Are Not That Fast

Yasiel Puig tried to score from second base on a ground-ball double play in the bottom of the sixth inning against the Mets. He did not score; he turned a double play into a triple play. So...it did not go well.

The Mets had a 7-2 lead at the time and Puig must have thought he'd catch the Mets napping, but Lucas Duda almost immediately saw him making the turn and easily threw him out from first. Unless, was Travis d'Arnaud blocking the plate? Let's forget about that.

Alternate narrative: Yasiel Puig is so good he turned a double play into a triple play. Think about it.
