I wonder if Trout and Harper can help spear head a baseball Renaissance.
Flex have you seen Yasiel Puig play yet? Question is for anyone really.
Yeah, I have. Puig is pretty comparable to Cespedes as far as skill sets go. Except I would say that Puig has a slightly shorter swing than Cespedes, making him less prone to strikeouts. Probably also less dynamic than Cespedes when it comes to pure speed and athleticism, but Puig can still run. As far as power, I'd say Puig grades out better in that department.
Looks like a really good player.
The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time.

Argh, still don't have a team to follow and not going to do another season of just watching random games now I have mlb.tv Premium. My head won't let me support The Giants even though I really enjoy their games, simply due to their WS win. Current plan is to just hope that Brian Wilson gets picked up by someone and let fate decide who I follow based on that. A stupid system? You bet!
You could watch The Braves.
But if I were looking for a team to get behind, I'd go with a team that's young and/or exciting. The Nationals, Rays, and Jays would be on my list.
