Brandon Phillips is cowed by the majesty of Yasiel Puig's arm

On Wednesday night's game against the Dodgers, Reds infielder Brandon Phillips made it to second base on a base hit. On another night, perhaps, against another team, Phillips would have raced towards third, but the ball landed in right field, which is patrolled by none other than Yasiel Puig. Many men have tested the strength of his arm; few have succeeded. Phillips halted at second, and showed due respect to the outfielder:


All hail Puig the Great and Magnificent, Wizard of the Wall Catch, Lord of the Long Throw (and occasional Master of Snakes).
