Can't wait for regression. Kid isn't even an all star.

meh.  we'll find out how good of an agent jay-z is when he starts negotiating contracts.  he may be awesome, he may suck balls.  but if he keeps stealing top shelf talent from other agents, they are going to murder death kill him in a way that would make most gangster rappers squeamish

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.

I wouldn't call it a passive obsession. More of an actively annoyed. That and he's on someone else's fantasy team in the fark league.

/can't believe I didn't even pick up Dom brown

And that team's name has never been more apropos.

I can't believe I dropped Dom Brown (and kept Ethier).

In fairness I dropped him for David Ortiz, so it could be worse.

Hiring Jay-Z as his agent is master level trolling

If I were in my early 20's and  "breakout" player I might consider using Jay-Z's service to get some hot ass and into the best parties.  However as I got older, In my later 20's, I would probably use someone else, or a lawyer because I would have a roundabout figure of my own worth and wouldn't need or want to pay someone to put a deal together for myself.  If you are the best at your position, it is kind of east to figure out what you are worth over a couple years.  Just look at someones contract, because that is what Jay-Z  and his lawyers are doing.

Anyone know what Jay-Z's cut is?

"Then again, the last time Jay-Z become obsessed with a multi-talented superstar he married her"

Well, hey, if it goes that route it's legal now in LA...
