If Bochy picks him, I have no problem at all with it. In fact, I'll probably watch even more of what has become a very boring thing to watch, if Puig makes the team, just to watch him bat once.
And it's all about the ratings, isn't it?
This is the right answer.
I've heard the argument that he hasn't played enough this year to warrant being included. If this were to be the reason why he wouldn't be included, then shouldn't there be a rule specifying exactly how many games a player needs to play in to make it to the ASG?
