Why did Bryce Harper use Yasiel Puig’s bat? Because he uses everyone’s bat.

On Thursday, cameras caught the unusual sight of Bryce Harper hitting with a bat that had Yasiel Puig’s name etched into the barrel. For Harper, it turned out, it was not unusual at all.
Puig had given Harper the bat, joining a long list of players Harper has borrowed lumber from. Harper said he has used bats given to him by, among others: Chase Utley, Michael Morse, Troy Tulowitzki, David Wright, Buster Posey, Todd Helton, Melky Cabrera and Miguel Cabrera.

“I mean, I swing everybody’s model,” Harper said.

This is some elite level crowdsourcing.

“I mean, I swing everybody’s model,” Harper said.

I bet his swinger parties have some elite level talent. Models, no less.

I like that we have a tag for "polyamorous wood."

Apparently Harper hit very well with Puig's bat the other day in that 14 run rout of the Giants, so he should stock up on those.

Or it could have been some reason other than the bat.
