ESPN Reports Some Stupid Shit About Yasiel Puig

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

My stars! Yasiel Puig used his interpreter to try to pick up girls, and it was "not the first such occurrence," Pedro Gomez tells us darkly, citing "a source." But wait! It gets worse! Puig also failed to show proper deference when greeting Luis Gonzalez, according to Gomez, who on this count is merely piggybacking off the reporting of Dan Bickley of the Arizona Republic. "Yasiel Puig disrespects Diamondbacks legend," we learned last night. (Yeah, that's right: Sun Belt Brian Downing is a legend!)

What the hell? Was there a meeting where everyone decided to treat Yasiel Puig like the new Allen Iverson?
