WinoRhino: thecpt: Can't wait for regression. Kid isn't even an all star.The latest obsession for passive fans of baseball. People got all excited because the kid was hitting for power early and that got some attention. Now as his ABs build up his average and everything else is coming back down to earth. On top of that, you have a guy like Jose Iglesias (who I am reserving judgement on as well) who has essentially the same BA and OBP He's also had his share of extra base hits (his doubles and triples are higher than Puig's). But more importantly,Iglesias has less SO and more BB. That tells me the kid has a better eye at the plate. Not to mention he is better in the field playing a more demanding position(s).Mind you, I'm just using Iglesias as a comparison because they are both rookies and very similar. I'm not selling him as the next great thing, and I am not saying Puig isn't. It's just too early and the attention given to Puig can be chalked up simply to a few home runs early in the season. I think he's only hit 1 in the last two weeks.
thecpt: That and he's on someone else's fantasy team in the fark league.
