In Russia, PED's use you.
The widow is gathering nettles for her children's dinner; a perfumed seigneur, delicately lounging in the Oeil de Boeuf, hath an alchemy whereby he will extract the third nettle and call it rent. ~ Carlyle
A couple of weeks ago, someone brought up the question of whether Puig should be an All Star. I think he should because the Dodgers need a representative (J/K Kershaw).
The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
He's so fun to watch. He's giving everyone young a sample of Bo Jackson but reminding me of Yoenis Cespedes.
Pitchers WILL adjust....but also many on here thought Bryce Harper had zero reason to be in the majors last year.
Dom Heffner (06-22-2013)
1 walk, 14 strikeouts, .522 BABIP.
Swinging outside of the zone 43% of the time, which would be 4th worst in baseball if he qualified.
Pitchers are going to adjust. He will need to adjust back. But there is going to be an adjustment period for him and likely soon.
MLBTR has this about Profar:
Profar is OPSing less than .700. His bat isn't up to snuff. They talk about moving him to OF, but a sub-.700 OPS guy doesn't have any value in the outfield. Guess they're trying to move Kinsler to the OF........I doubt he goes for that. Meanwhile Profar's value is declining as he's exposed at the plate. Although, he never did impress that much at the plate in the minors. His value was playing SS and the usual "he's young".•While the Rangers could use some outfield help, the decision to use Jurickson Profar as an outfielder is somewhat risky, Rosenthal opines. Profar is learning a new position on the fly and has yet to deliver much at the plate in his brief Major League career. If he struggles, he'll lose some trade value if the Rangers decide to move him, and the team may also have more trouble convincing Ian Kinsler to eventually move to the outfield to make room for Profar at second base.
Puig is the real deal.

"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."
