Yasiel Puig has the physical ability to be an absolute superstar, but the mental focus of someone who could make too many mistakes to stay on a roster. This play on a groundball into the outfield sums up his career perfectly.
Puig misplayed a groundball into the outfield and had the ball kick away from him. The runner saw this and decided to try to make it to third.
Puig picked the ball up and used his cannon to throw the runner out. Just an unbelievable throw after an incredibly boneheaded mistake.

That’s Yasiel Puig. You have to take the good with the bad and hope the good far outweighs the bad.
