I feel very comfortable knowing whether I would like a person based on where they stand on Yasiel Puig, the baseball player. He is completely fantastic. His very existence, and uniqueness, cuts through all boredom. There are people posting here, who very openly said that he was lucky, and wasn’t going to be much of a player. I derive a form of enjoyment from that combination of arrogance, wrongness, and lack of appreciation of Yasiel’s pure, joyful style of play, and the magnificent blend of baseball skills+tools that he brings to the game. This isn’t to say that I don’t cringe, occasionally, at some of the plays he makes but, I will take it.
