Now we know that Puigs fly

What’s the all uproar about Yasiel Puig driving 110 MPH?

We all knew that Puigs fly… and he was really flying!

We also know that he’s somewhat of a knucklehead!  He’s our knucklehead, charismatic and prone to implode at any time.

It’s not too late.  Trade Yasiel Puig, Cory Seager, Zach Lee, Ross Stripling and Dee Gordon to the Rays for Evan Longoria and David Price.  If they want Joc Pederson, then throw him in too.

Be bold!

Lineup:

  1. Crawford  LF
  2. Ramirez  SS
  3. Kemp  CF
  4. Gonzalez  1B
  5. Longoria  3B
  6. Ethier  RF
  7. Guerrero  2B
  8. Ellis  C

Rotation:

  1. Kershaw
  2. Greinke
  3. Price
  4. Haron
  5. Ryu

    It’s a simple HELL no for me but that’s just me. Also, Dan Haren, I just didn’t understand the signing. I see him as a flop. I hope I’m wronge but 10 mil for a way over the hill out of prime injury prone pitcher. I just don’t get it.

    If we hadnt just signed Uribe for 2 years I would be tempted by that deal. Of course no one wants to lose our top prospects but that’s two stellar players we are getting back. I’ve said it before in here that I’m not sure Puig is gonna work out long term – either in the clubhouse or as a player. Trade him now while his value is high. He will continue to embarrass the club. Has he never heard of Paul Walker? Let him take his bat flipping & disrespect somewhere else.
    As for Haren I think he’s as good a no5 as there will be out there. His numbers in the second half showed he will be ok- better than Capuano or Harang.

    puig ..is just like dee gordon…doesnt take what the coaches tell them.they dont listen.

    That’s too much for Price and Longoria. Puig is 5 WAR player just with a half season. If I gotta deal Puig, I ‘ii propose a deal like this:
    Price, Zobrist and Longoria for Puig, Uribe, Beckett, Ethier and cash
    (40 ~50 mil)
    If they don’t accept, then no deal.

    No thanks.

    I like Puig. He likes to drive fast. Slow down kid. I’ve done 100 on I-5 (many are doing it at this minute) and I’m sure many of you have done close to that it or even gone faster. I just don’t think this is that big a deal. He’s been a model citizen otherwise.

    And I too think Haren could be a good sign. If you had to choose a place for a pitcher to get his mojo back LA is the place to pick. I see 180 innings of 4.0 out of him.

    I have driven 160 MPH on Alligator Alley (in a 1997 SHO with Z-Rated tires), but I\’m no model citizen! ;)

    I had a friend over for the ASU game last night. Older guy, like me, I asked him what was the fastest he ever drove on a highway. He had his Corvette up to 130 in the Nevada desert. Years ago. We asked the pizza guy the same thing, he had his Mustang over 100 several times. Out in the middle of the Arizona desert. Driving fast is stupid, but young people do stupid things all the time. Make him run the bases twice for every mph he was over the speed limit. Don’t trade him because he drove his car 40 miles slower than it will actually go.

    btw, my car was a ’62 Impala SS. I blew it up, then had it blueprinted and built by a racing team in Orange County. That thing was really fast. In some cars, and Mercedes is one of them, the car is built so well, you can be doing 100 and you don’t even know it. I did that in my foster father’s new Mercedes back in ’73. We were on our way to Palm Springs and just chatting away when I noticed I was doing 95 on I-10. Yoiks.

    Let’s not get carried away with this.

    I had a 1965 Ford Galaxie 500 that came from the factory with a Hi-Po 390. I worked at a Ford Dealer in high school, so I bought a 428 Cobra Jet with Jahn\’s 12.5:1 Pop-Up Piston, Dual Hollies, Hooker Headers, .600 lift cam with 330 degrees duration, 4:10 Detroit Locker and was clearanced, balanced, decked and bored .1000 over. It wouldn\’t go over 110 MPH, but it got there quick! Those were the days…

    I had a VW van… At top end I think I could safely jump out…Happy New Year to all you Blue fans…
    I became a little more irritated at YP when I found out his Mom was in the car along with 1 or 2 othere females… Lets all face it, he’s got the IQ of a fungo bat, but I for one will stick with him warts and all. Too much talent… As I said before, maybe a season start at AAA to get him focused…
    Dan Haren a damn good sign… A workhorse and good clubhouse guy…No problem…Dodger fans will like him…

    Puig is a baseball player. Let’s not expect too much more out of him. I just want him to play good ball. I don’t think he signed up to be a role model. That may never happen. I guess the front office has to pretend it cares, for the sake of publicity, ticket sales, community, etc. Just play good ball. No to the trade. Price isn’t worth it. I’m not sure Tanaka is either. Is Arroyo still out there?

  12. Watford Dodger says:

    B17 – no problem with Arroyo. A real innings eater.
    Have a good night everyone.

  13. Badger says:

    I’ve had a few VW vans Pete. In ’72 I drove from Seal Beach to NY via the Mardi Gras. Then up to Maine, on to Wisconsin, out to Montana and back to Seal Beach. I was gone 8 months. All in ’59 VW bus. What a trip.

  14. Pete M. says:

    Badger – I hope you look back at this…
    Never took a long trip like yours, but boy was my van stopped many times out West. Utah headed the list with AZ. a close 2nd… Just stopped to see where were going and the such… Utah was blatant enough to suggest just heading on thru God’s country with NO stops… Late 60′s + beard + VW Van + Ca. plates = “Whats ya doing boy…
