The Puig Wag Through History

As is amply documented, Brian McCann’s job as Chief of Fun Police has made him a busy man for the past several thousand years. Somewhat less attention has been given by historians to the role of Yasiel Puig. That is now changing, as ongoing scholarship reveals the Cuban sensation to have been present for a surprisingly large number of momentous events. Take heart, Albert Pujols: you are merely the latest to have faced, and ultimately overcome, the Wag of Puig.

Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a man of recent wealth and taste
I’ve been around for just a season
Flipped many a bat, laid pitchers to waste

And I was ’round when Brian McCann
Had his moment of fun police rage
Made damn sure that Cashman
Signed his ass and sealed his fate

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
