Yasiel Puig Really Wants You to Believe He Caught This Ball … He Did Not Catch This Ball

Funny and Happy

The key to a good lie is to believe what you’re saying. You have to trick your brain – at least, momentarily – into genuinely believing the words coming out of your mouth. It’s tough, but that’s how it’s done. And I should know, I’m a penguin.

And apparently, Yasiel Puig knows the trick.

Watch as he gives maximum effort to track down this foul ball near the right-field foul-line, but comes up just short of making the play:

LOL.

The ball rattles off his body, then the wall, then his head, then the wall again before he comes down with it, and the umpire has a PERFECT view of everything. But despite what’s so obvious to everyone else, Puig hits the deck, sees the safe call, and immediately goes into finger-wag mode.

Meanwhile, I’m just sitting here laughing and wishing someone would remind him that we have high-definition, slow-motion, instant replay available … everywhere. But still, you can see the belief in his eyes, right? Better luck next time.
