If not Puig, who? MLB does its best to its product behind the times and as devolved as is possible. If Selig and crew have any sense, Puig will make the team, start, and possibly force 1-2 people to watch the game in its entirety….

With that being said, I can’t get Yasiel out of the box in my living room and I’m loving every second of it. Drawing physical similarities to a young Bo Jackson, Puig doesn’t look like a ballplayer – more like a linebacker. Consider that, in 27 games or less than 1/6th of a major league season, Puig has a slash line of .443/.473/.745 to go along with 8 homers, 6 doubles and 17 RBI. Small sample sizes make his batting average a bit tough to buy, but that power is beyond legit.
