One week into his major league career, this much has become clear about Yasiel Puig ( Pig ): Balls rocket off his bat;his throws from the outfield prompt stop signs by opposing third basemen; and his speed and abandon on the base paths create awe and wonder.
In his first seven days with the LA Mattinglys, he hit 4 home runs, drove in 10 runs, threw out two base runners, drew an intentional walk, and rendered Vince Scully ( their John and Suzyn ) speechless.
"I've never seen a 5 tool player show all five tools in three games," gulped Scully. Not in his 64 years of broadcasting.
Do I really need to point out that our best minor league position player has no tools? Not at any level.
Where is our pig?
Will we ever have a pig?
