It's the majors. His weaknesses will be identified and exploited soon enough.
 
2013-06-07 12:40:13 PM  
He'll come down to Earth a bit, but he has ridiculous skills and is built like a linebacker. He's like a young Sammy Sosa with no weaknesses and as yet, no PED scandals or weird skin whitening.

It's against the Padres. Might as well be continuation of his minor league career

But even the lowly Padres figured out part of the puzzle after only two games. Puig went 0-4 with 2 strikeouts in the last game of the series.

Checked the schedule, thought it'd be awesome if he played the Marlins and Cubs next. Braves and D-Backs should be a good test.

Apparently he hasn't figured out Jason Marquis's sinker.  Then again, Marquis had a no hitter through almost 7 innings I think, so it isn't like any of the other Dodgers had it figured out either.

This guy Puig just looks different, like Bo Jackson.  A man among boys, by looks anyway.  We'll see if he lives up to the hype.

Don Mattingly's been so grateful to Puig after each game he may now have throat cancer.

This. I remember guys like Steve Decker, Eric Anthony and Kevin Maas. All guys that had incredible starts, Maas's lasting more than a few games, but once their weakness was exploited they couldn't adjust and they went away.

I don't understand why he's so good.   I mean, he's on my fantasy team after all, and with all this production he's going to have a tough time fitting in with the rest of the losers on Montzazuma's Revenge (A's oriented league).  If he keeps this up, I might even win one of these head to head battles one of these weeks.


So, fewer homers and more strikeouts, Yasiel.  The other players on my team are starting to dislike you.
 
2013-06-07 02:13:10 PM  
And four curtain calls.

Four. In four games.

He was given quite a bit of hype on MLB Network the night of his debut. He looks like he could be a pretty good player, especially if he hasn't gotten a hold of the supplements many pro athletes in America have

His name is right out of a Herman Melville novel.

Kevin Kouzmanoff hit a grand slam on the first pitch he saw in the bigs.

For every one of those guys, there's a Carlos Delgado.  He went on a tear to start, pitchers figured him out and he started circling the drain, then he figured out the pitchers and stuck around for like 20 years.  It can go either way.

This.  They called a guy up from AA and he's had a good series.  Lance Niekro had a good three months, eight years later and he's coaching NCAA D2.

You guys are probably right, but this impressed me. Outside corner, Puig is clearly late on the pitch, yet casually flicked a line drive HR to the opposite field. That's strength/bat speed right there.

Oh I know it happens.

Hitting in baseball is about 2 main things. One is hitting the mistake pitches from the pitcher. The second is being able to adjust to how the pitcher is trying to pitch you. 99% of the time pitchers aren't going to put the ball into the batters wheel house on purpose. If you can't adjust to what the pitcher is doing, you aren't going to last long, unless you play some hellified defense. Some guys learn right away, some guys it may take a few years, but most never learn.

He has two funny names for his ass?  What are they, subby?
 
2013-06-07 03:01:53 PM  
Two goofy ass names but ManBearPuig would be an awesome nickname.
 
2013-06-07 03:06:57 PM  
Let's take a really small sample and extrapolate from there. I wish him the best, but let's be realistic.
 
2013-06-07 03:10:10 PM  
Time to scrutinize his pee.

+1

// and as far as funny last names, Pujols will always be #1
// possibly also #1 on the all-time HR list (assuming he goes back to the NL or starts hitting dingers at the same pace and stays healthy for 10 more years)

He's hanging out with Milton Bradley.

Nobody who's seen Mr. Poo-holes "run" this season would assume he stays healthy for a decade. That dude's got one foot in the grave and the other on a pile of genetically-modified zero friction banana peels.

-I should follow baseball (outside the NL East) more closely

2013-06-07 04:19:06 PM  
I saw this headline and I was all skeptical about this guy, but I checked what is 162 game projection would be and he might be the best player ever!
.438/.438/1.063, 284 H, 122 of which are HR, 365 RBI.  Never seen a guy make 648 PA without a single walk before, but the projections don't lie.

/I mean you just multiply what a guy does in 4 games by 40.5, right?
 
2013-06-07 04:29:48 PM

It is a great name.  My vote for best newcomer name to the world of pro sports is Barkevious Mingo, this year's first round pick of the Cleveland Browns.
 
2013-06-07 04:46:19 PM  
What was the projection on this guy?  Not that he'll keep  this pace up, but was he supposed to be a Kershaw level star, or were they expecting some dude to fill some time for an injured player only to be shipped back to the minors in a few weeks?

According to wikipedia, "He has two older brothers, Hugh and Hughtavious"

What the fark is up with his family?
 
2013-06-07 04:52:37 PM  
Great story.  But it is a long season so before we give this guy Rookie of the Year, MVP, and new ruler of LA, lets see how he deals with teams once they have a chance to scout him a bit.  He has had an amazing start, but unfortunately for the Dodgers, often they will hit a slump and it is improtant to see if they can recover when they hit a rough patch.
