    Yasiel Puig

    #6 tonight.

    Are you a believer?

    What's his ceiling?

    Coming into tonight: 1 walks and 11 strikeouts. He will need to adjust that or he will go all Jeff Francouer on us. Huge ceiling though. The tools are impressive.

    pitching adjustments coming soon.

    We'll see how he adjusts to that. Agree with doug, very impressive so far.

    I for one welcome our new Puig overlord.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    What is interesting to me is that despite all the excitement he has brought the Dodgers all now being swept up as a team. Are they just that bad a squad? What is their issue?

    I'd love to watch him, but I'm not paying $100 for MLBTV or $200 for MLB Extra Innings.

    He adds one more part for the Dodgers to be less than the sum of. ;-)

    I never read Kiss of the Spider Woman but I enjoyed the movie.

    Yeah something tells me a .537 BABP isn't going to keep up very long, and not sure I buy the .316 ISO, either.

    Won't call him a fraud, but I think it's mostly a mirage due to sample size and no one having any idea how to pitch him.

    Somehow he was kept to a more mortal performance in the minors. I would love to see a heat chart on Puig.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I watched Marquis throw him 3 off speed pitches in I think jus 2nd AB last night. He looked lost. I know he homered in his first AB. Not sure what he did after that.

    Steroids or HGH. You always have to suspect Caribbean players, especially ones from Communist countries. Cespedes is probably using, too.
