Rooting for you against the Nationals to help my Braves.but real talk your Puig hot month is done. He's went from .415 to .381 in about 7 games he will finish the season at about .280-.290. Still great and the guy has a cannon for an arm. But he's not the new Joe DiMaggio like bspn kept saying. I know Dodger fans didn't buy the hype. That wasn't a fair comparison for a 30 game rookie anyways. Ya call someone DiMaggio after a month and all you can do after that peak is decline. Regardless he's gonna he a solid ball player. When he figure s out to stop stepping out of the box to pull everything and thus drop his hands the K's will go down to. All in time.

 

Well to be fair, Puig's decline started when he crashed into the wall at Coors and hit his hip.  Anyone with a hint of baseball knowledge knows that he wasn't hitting .400 and he definitely wasn't going to stay above .450 

 

I don't think he's fully healthy but his patience at the plate is not related to that injury and it's just him being a young player who has had the game come easy to him up until this point in his young career. 

 

He can still hit slightly above the .300 mark but under seems more reasonable for a young player.  He's got the tools to be great, but what he'll figure out (and he's definitely seeing it now) is that it takes more than just having the tools.  

 

He's only 22 years old so he has a lot of baseball left in front of him.  People weren't calling him the new DiMaggio, they simply compared him because the numbers he put up were only comparable to him.  It's unfair but today everyone loves a comparison :laughing:

Maybe hangin' around celebs like Chris Brown, Snoop Lion, and around the playboy mansion recently haven't been helping matters either. Some players don't handle distractions as well.

Another strike out for Puig.  Now he's pressing, you can tell by his body language. 

 

This is all part of the concern over his immaturity that many fans shrugged off.  Everything is great when you're performing but when struggles come up, that's when you see how a player really is.

He's still swinging at way too many bad pitches. It's like he probably knows he can get a few more walks, but he seems offended at the idea and would rather go down swinging even if he looks like an idiot at times with pitches nobody would hit.

Every player who currently plays baseball should be taking notes from Hanley Ramirez.  My goodness

Hanley Ramirez is our new Yasiel Puig.

 

Hanley has been far better than Puig since his return from injury.  Puig just got the media attention.

Dodgers 6-0-3 in their last 9 series. 

 

DBacks losing right now, so the Dodgers could possibly be a half game back as of tonight.  Kershaw going tomorrow!

Puig just looks lost...like Matt Kemp did after his collision with the wall. UGHH damn you Colorado

 

Bullpen impressive once again, no runs allowed...Withrow, Jansen, Belisario, Howell, Paco, Dominguez all got the job done tonight

 

Hanley clutch again. We're depending on him too much, need Ethier, A-Gon, Crawford to get their bats going. Kershaw tomorrow vs Zimmerman who hasnt lost at home since 2012 May
