The media, particularly ESPN, is at it again, pushing Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig over Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman in the 2013 All-Star Game Final Vote. Dan Le Betard and Bomani Jones had this golden exchange on ESPN2's Highly Questionable.
What they get wrong is that not everyone wants to watch him. Some people actually want to watch the proven best players in baseball, not the guy who flips his bat after hitting a single that's only been up for 33 games.
What Le Betard gets more wrong is that when he talks about getting Puig in the game illegally, he says, "Even if they have to put nine players on the field."
