Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is one of the most exciting players in baseball. He's one of the best power hitters and one of the most athletic fielders​ in the game today.

Not everyone is a fan of Puig, though. Some critics call him a distraction because of his on- and off-field behavior.

Puig poked fun at his reputation with an Instagram post on Thursday night. The image Puig posted a cropped version of a cartoon FOX Sports published last spring.

It shows Puig in a dugout writing "I will not be a distraction" over and over on a chalkboard like Bart in the opening credits of The Simpsons. 

Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun, Derek Jeter and a few other major-leaguers are featured as well.

Hate the man all you want, at least he has a sense of humor.
