When homer-pimping goes wrong, Yasiel Puig edition

Yasiel Puig got a little carried away with unnecessary homer pimpage.

The Giants and Dodgers went 12 innings on Tuesday, meaning this Yasiel Puig fly out in the top of the frame with two runners on could have had major implications:

Puig-fly-out

No one was more disappointed about the result than Puig himself:

Puig-whoops

Listen, I'm a huge proponent of homer pimping. You don't love David Ortiz like I do unless you've embraced this facet of the long ball. There's little more embarrassing than pimping what turns out to be an out, however. I wouldn't call it "bush" as the Giants' announcers did while showing this replay, but it definitely makes Puig look like a doofus.

Let's set the over/under on cranky writers who take this extra personally because Puig is wearing Jackie Robinson's 42 when he did this at three.
