    Re: Yasiel Puig

    Puig just made a Votto-esque error out in right, lest you believe he isn't human.
    "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."

    He inadvertently kicked a ball in the stands earlier, too, resulting in a ground rule double.

    I posted the above as the Dodgers were in the middle of losing to the Padres. They lost again the next day to fall to 30-42. They have gone 40-8 since.


    First line of the quote was supposed to be "Dodgers are not ..." I hate typing on the Ipad and its auto-correct.

    So, what'd he do to tick Mattingly off enough to yank his fanny out of a game?

    Re: Yasiel Puig

    This is the most impressive player I've seen come into this league in a decade. He hits a lot like Manny after watching him extensively but plays harder than Ramirez did and has more speed and a better arm and might end up being a gold glove defender.

    I am more impressed by Puig then I was of Harper, Heyward, J. Upton, any number of big prospects that have came into the league and everything I read was that he was a decent but not all-world prospect. The scouts weren't favorable enough to him in my opinion. He's a guy who could be a 30-40 home run guy and hit .330 with 30 steals during his peak I think. As the years go on and he develops discipline I think he's going to walk more and be a .900 OPS bat.

    I think the Dodgers win the World Series this year or at least reach it because of this guy mainly. Don Mattingly probably wouldn't have a job right now without him.

    Sabe Puig as my LA friends tell me. Gonna check him out Sat at GABP. However the Dodgers aren't winning the WS cause the Reds are about to get hot and that distinction is theres and theres alone! Mark it down! There about to get hot!

    No, not that time, last week Mattingly yanked him in the 5th (i think...), but never said exactly why, just that it was a "team internal issue".

    I heard he's got a prima donna attitude that they're trying to rein in.

    I'm not saying it is this cut and dry...but have you heard of Mike Trout (and he was a couple years younger his first season)?

    Puig's stirkeouts outnumber his walks almost 3:1. He swings and misses at nearly one out of every five pitches thrown to him. And is his isolated power is a decent but not great .213.

    I don't mind being a broken record, but when his .425 BABIP normalizes next year or whenever, he's going to look like just another free swinger with some tools.

    It's unsustainable
