Photo of the Day: Vin Scully with Gumby Puig

Sep 27, 2013, 8:54 AM EDT

Headline pretty much says it all:

 

For what it’s worth, glad to see teams taking rookie dress-up hazing in different directions than simply putting them in women’s clothes.

    I am Gumby! I am showbusiness!

    Puig looks like an environmental activist crossed with a Klansman.

      Well Gumby’s made of clay.

        So, it’s a complex statement about heroes and efficacy.

      Sounds about right; Gator sees a children’s character and it brings white supremacy to his mind.

    The nerve of Yasiel Puig! Dressing up in a costume on the same day where he went 1 – 4 and struck out three times! This isn’t how championships are won!!!!!! Somebody cool this man’s hot temper!

      7/10. Needed more exclamation points.

      He’s batting .231 for September.

      I’ll say it again – as far as rookie phenoms go, the dude is no Mike Trout.

    Boy, I bet it confused the hell out of Puig when they handed him that to put on. Talk about lack of cultural reference. I wonder if he thought: Okay. Capitalists.

      I have to say, Eddie Murphy was the DEFINITIVE Gumby-that-wasn’t Gumby. Puig just can’t carry it off. For one thing, his physique isn’t up to the job. I mean, Gumby has pipe cleaner arms. Puig’s look like telephone poles. Cement ones. That there picture of Puig-Gumby looks like Gumby’s jacked up older brother.

        They’re taking our jerbs!!!!

      • APBA Guy - Sep 27, 2013 at 11:34 AM

        Funny-if only Puig had been running around yelling “I am Gumby, dammit.”

    Did he pee in the costume? I heard Dodgers like to pee in stuff

      Mail them a box of your Cheerios, I’m sure they’d be happy to accommodate you.

    Look at Mr. Scully…still dressing like a million bucks every day. Pure class.
