In my keeper league it was the single biggest fantasy mistake I have ever made, and part of it was based off my fantasy cafe friends opinions.
This year I will be holding on to Puig. The kid is doing way way way to good. If he doesnt pan out then oh well. But if he does we can laugh all the way to the championship.
My prediction is simple. The dodgers save a year on Puig 3 weeks after the year starts. So no matter what he will most likely start down. Then Crawford will get hurt and Puig will get called up and play himself onto the team. Crawford comes back and the Dodgers trade Ethier to open up a permanent spot for Puig.
I have my opinion and enough confidence in my fantasy baseball knowledge to stick with it. I've gotten pretty good at this stuff over the years and I trust what I see. I'm not always right, but I've been right more than I've been wrong in a lot of these situations.
When someone comes to a forum and starts gushing about a player like Puig then people are going to jump on the other side of the argument...and that's to be expected. I really enjoy talking about fantasy baseball and I've always liked the Cafe, but I very rarely trust the opinions of others over my own.
It sucks that you lost on Trout, but at the end of the day you are responsible for managing your own team. I'll share my thoughts and anyone that wants can disagree, but I'm a stubborn a**
hole so I doubt anyone is going to change my mind. It will be funny to take a look back on Puig in a few months or a year and see how he's progressed. I seriously think he's going to be an elite player in the majors in time and I think that he's one of the top prospects in the game...if not the top prospect. I like him more than Oscar Taveras and Jurickon Profar...maybe they are better comparisons since we are talking about a prospect here.*(mod edit)*
