“I asked them to please keep helping me,” Puig told ESPN. “Specifically with baserunning and hitting my cutoff man. I want them to help me with everything they can.”
i don't think it's unreasonable for folks to wonder about the likelihood of successfully using 'public shaming' as an employee management tactic

Absolutely. Reggie Jackson in 1977. Reggie was publicly criticized by his manager, Billy Martin, among others, for his behavior and attitude throughout the season. He ultimately responded by leading the Yankees to the world championship.
