A backlash against Yasiel Puig?

Yasiel Puig is exceptionally good at baseball. This much is not in dispute -- the man is hitting .394 and keeps doing the kind of things that would have inspired whispered legends before the days of Internet video. Anyone who's this good this fast is bound to experience a pushback, however, and it appears to have already started for Puig. Miguel Montero (appropos of nothing, currently hitting .219) criticized him for being aloof and said he was creating a bad reputation around the league. Is it all just sour grapes?

  • Miguel Montero said that Yasiel Puig is ''creating a bad reputation'' around the league. Do you agree?
