Yasiel Puig Decided Not To Flip His Bat But To Flip Off Some Fans After Hitting A Home Run


It must just be one of those weeks where athletes have had enough of the trash talk from fans. First we had Danica Patrick get her feelings hurt when fans booed her for not signing autographs at the Pocono 400. And now we have this. Yesterday after Los Angeles Dodgers Yasiel Puig got done rounding the bases after hitting a two-run home run off of Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer, he made an obscene gesture towards the Indians’ fans while he was making his way back to the dugout. Apparently Puig wasn’t too appreciative of whatever the fans were saying to him and he pulled a Mr. Met on them. Here is the video of Puig’s home run and then his gesture to the fans afterwards.



And here is Puig's explanation after the game as to why he made such gesture toward the Cleveland fans.

Let’s see what people thought of Puig opting not to flip his bat but to flip something else.

I guess Mr. Met started something here. Puig will probably get fined for his actions. But again you have to have tougher skin than that. Fans are going to be like that no matter what. You want to shut them up. Go out and perform well on the field. Let your glove and bat do the talking for you. The fans can’t really have much to heckle you about if you go out there and ball out. You got to be better than this.
