Yasiel Puig, Destroying A Baseball on Video

puig_chattanooga_homerLest you think that the success of Carl Crawford has caused us to forget about Yasiel Puig, here’s video of him absolutely destroying a ball off of A.J. Morris of the Cubs’ Double-A affiliate in Tennessee the other night. Seriously, look where that ball lands.

Puig entered play today hitting .414/.469/.759 for the Lookouts, but an 0-4 with three whiffs today dropped that batting average all the way down to .364. 0-4 with three whiffs? Wait, maybe he really is ready for the Dodgers.

I have a preliminary design done for a WIN 4 ZACK sticker I am debating on producing. Anyone interested?

@JoeyE I think it suits him. A number you don't see often for a player you don't see often.

@Antonio G @LA_Woman @ThtsaPaddlin   Me too with the saves. Reyes was stealing bases for me; maybe Trout will start stealing like he's supposed to. I hate that I keep losing on errors.

@Antonio G @LA_Woman @ThtsaPaddlin  Yeah, I'm figuring that out about him. If there was some FA that I wanted badly enough, I'd drop him, but like I said... slim pickings.

Yeah, we've got two NA slots, not DL.

@LA_Woman @Antonio G @ThtsaPaddlin For some reason I thought we had two DL spots so when Cespedes went down I was like "eh, whatever" but NOPE! I don't really like Fujikawa that much. I don't trust him enough.

@Antonio G @LA_Woman @ThtsaPaddlin  Oh, wow, you're really hampered. I've got Reyes & Fujikawa on the DL. I've been looking at available players and pickings were already slim, but now there are so many on the DL.

@LA_Woman @Antonio G @ThtsaPaddlin My offense is a bunch of average players around Cano/Cespedes/Morse but at least my pitching is slightly above average in my opinion. As long as I stay around the top 5 I'll be happy.

@Antonio G @ThtsaPaddlin @LA_Woman  I should be doing much better, too, except those stooopid Angels haven't been hitting (Trumbo & Trout). And of course now Reyes is on the DL.


Posey has been ice cold?!?! That is GREAT news!

@LA_Woman @ThtsaPaddlin I should be doing much better than I am.  Braun's neck is bothering him, and Posey is ice cold.  My pitching is average enough that it should get me through.

@LA_Woman Im not entirely sure that is the phrase I want. I am debating if I should keep the Greinke silhouette simple and clean or add more details.

@EephusBlue @LA_Woman Well, you asked if anyone is interested. So whenever you're ready to show it, we're (I'm) ready to see it!

@LA_Woman @EephusBlue Haha well I have the basic layout. Im not sure yet if I am totally happy with the Greinke figure. So long as you allow that its preliminary I will post it.

@JoeyE I see him wearing something in the mid to high 20's when he gets to LA probably.
