As it was he dove into the bag rather than slid into it. He bounced off the bag so crazily I thought for sure that 1000s of Yahoo lunkheads would be dropping him today. It looked bad and was a horrible fundamental play.
Still want his Puiglets, tho.

Puig limping after running out that ground ball. Being looked at by trainers and heading to clubhouse. UGH

Yasiel Puig appears to be limping slightly after grounding out to SS. Leaves dugout with trainer. Dodger Stadium crowd groans.

I'm gonna say that the internet might explode again. Puig limping after he crosses 1st base and everyone surrounding him. Walking it off.

They're projecting something like 250 ABs for him over the rest of the season, calling his a "Profar situation," giving too much (IMO) credit to a scenario where he gets sent back down--- Karabell is saying he'd rather have Cameron Maybin right now.
Look, I know the guy is a rookie, but on upside alone I think he's a top ~60 player in overall value right now, and I acknowledge that a big component of that is perception/hype, but we've seen so many guys like this come up and rake in their first MLB action including a 19/20 year old Harper/Trout respectively.
I'm all for experts pouring cold water on overhyped guys who might very well be flashes in the pan, but Cockroft/Karabell are just too far behind the curve right now on Puig and I don't think I can take them seriously/even listen to the rest of today's podcast. Sorry for the ranting response but if anyone else happened to listen to fantasy focus today they'll probably understand my frustration.
