    Yasiel Puig is unreal

    Grand Slam tonight in his 4th game after a 2 HR game Tuesday. I am a biased Dodgers fan, and he will go through struggles when advanced scouting catches up with him, but his ability is off the charts. I mean absolutely off the charts. He has hit homers at night this week that people just don't hit in that heavy air. He has a long way to go, and in baseball a great week doesn't mean anything, but he could be in the conversation with Trout and Harper for years to come.

    How can you not like this kid?

    First of all, he ignited the entire Dodger team when he arrived by playing with reckless abandon and emotion. Not to mention he was putting up excellent numbers.

    He always has a smile on his face and is always engaging his teammates.

    Pitchers have been getting him to chase bad pitches of late and his SO numbers have escalated greatly. But I think he will eventually figure it out and learn to lay off the hard sliders off the plate.

    As a Dodger fan, I love watching this kid play. I just hope he stays healthy and doesn't end his career with his reckless style. Hopefully, he will learn to pick his spots.

    This kid is the real deal.

    And he's actually improved his game this year. And wants to get better.

    Best RF in baseball. Hands down.

    He needs to learn the infield fly rule.

    Not ready to put him in Trout's category yet, but he's just about there. Trout's ability to steal and play CF give him an edge.

    For that matter, can we stop putting Harper in Trout's category until he actually performs at his level? Or even close to it?

    10 dollars worth of ability with 10 cents worth of brains.

    Is it already October? I didn't realize baseball started this early...

    That's a misguided comment. But I would expect you to say that.

    He's done some stupid stuff (base running gaffs, not hitting the cut-off man, driving 100 mph with his mama in the car). But it seems like most of that is in the past.

    He's putting it all together and he's no dummy. He's figuring it out.

    Exactly... for my money its:

    Trout
    .
    Puig
    .
    .
    .
    .
    Harper

    The guy is most certainly a lightning rod for the press and every little event that occurs will be highlighted.

    If that's 10 cents worth of brains, I'll take that given his amazing abilities and talent on the baseball field. As I'm sure you would love him on your team.

    Ernie, what do you think?
