Yasiel Puig pokes fun at himself for being a 'distraction'
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.
