I have been amazed that many people over and over say that Yasiel “The Cannon” Puig was “obviously not ready and too green” and I am not anointing him as the Dodgers savior but talent always trumps experience. Even Ray Charles could see that this kid is a special talent. The people who say bringing up a kid too soon could crush his spirit and ruin him just don’t know what they don’t know. The great ones aren’t wired like that. They have a short memory – they forget their failures – learn from them and grow. Yasiel Puig is a rare talent and has to play. He will have his ups and downs, but he has to play. Andre Ethier is on the market. I still like Texas and Kinsler as a destination.
I know this will sound like heresy, but maybe the Dodgers should consider trading Ethier and Kemp. Hold on – I like Matt Kemp, but what if the Dodgers could get a true CF and stud stater for him? Something to contemplate… or would you trade Matt Kemp to the Yankees for Robinson Cano?
It’s a sad day in Indy after the baby Pacers were soundly spanked, but they are young and will be back and here’s the upside: Lots of free agents want to come he an win a Championship. They know the Paces are close. J. Reddick, OJ Mayo and others will be lining up to come to Indy!
Headed to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for a business trip until Saturday.
