    So how about that Yasiel Puig?

    In just a few MLB games under his belt, he already has an impressive defensive game, a 2 HR game, and a walk off grand slam.

    Crazy stuff.

    Certainly looks like he may be the real deal, a fun player to watch.

    Too bad the Dodgers dumped bucketloads of money onto Andre Ethier's front lawn immediately before signing Puig, and then put themselves on the tab for paying the bucketload Boston owes Carl Crawford.

    And by 'too bad', I mostly mean "Haw haw."

That's an amazing statement."

    Reminds of when Jay Bruce first came up.

    Technically the Grand Slam was not a walkoff. Dodgers were up 1-0 in the 8th and it put them up 5-0. While huge in terms of giving insurance, it was not a walkoff.

    Yes he has been impressive this week.

    But, but...if we trade Heisey, who's gonna back up Choo?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
