GQ has released its Men of the Year issue. One of the sub-categories: Phenom of the Year. And the winner is Yasiel Puig. Because, with all due respect to Mr. Trout and Mr. Harper, Puig is way more interesting.

GQ spoke with the wonderfully-named Tim Bravo, who was tasked with looking out for Puig and keeping him out of trouble. Bravo makes it sound like it was a hard job, and I imagine it was. But there were some fun times too. Times of wonder:

At first, he couldn’t believe the big-league Gatorade selection—’Ay, Teacher, muchos colores de Gatorade!’ He loved that he could watch The Three Stooges whenever he wanted.

Based on his love of Gatorade and the Three Stooges, Puig is the second player I can compare to my eight year-old son this year.

    How do they translate “nyuk, nyuk, nyuk” in Spanish?

    Puig was definitely the phenom of the year. Harper and Trout are so 2012.

    Puig has a speech disorder even in his native Spanish language as he makes a buzzing sound in the middle of every word he tries to speak. He really needs a speech therapist to help him develop better communication.

    This is what we call in the hood “Hooking up a brotha”..
