Cuba Libre mang !
Wow. I still think he'll run into a slump but wow...
I hope Ethier doesn't get too comfy here in LA. He'll need a change of address form soon.

In 2 games, Puig has equalled Kemp's home run production for the year.
I thought Kemp was the main man too. I would hope Kemp would've gotten healthy, but if he wasn't better with an entire offseason to rest, it's not looking good. He's had 8 months since his shoulder surgery, and to rest his previous hamstring injury. So if he can't hit after that rest, why would he hit the rest of the year? He's got a chronic hamstring problem, coupled with the fact surgery didn't fix his shoulder (why only 2 homers). Surgery doesn't always make you better.
Paying him $10,000,000 for each home run doesn't feel very good. He doesn't have a no trade clause. I'd gladly give him away, but who would take the $20 million a year for 7 years ?
I hope I'm wrong like Kubrick was, but I don't think so.

I love Kershaw's reaction. Maybe now he'll win a game after only giving up a run or two.

And now Puig hits a grand slam in the 8th inning of a 1 run game. Amazing. Oh yeah, it was another opposite fielder too.

Puig is only the second player since 1900 to have 4 HR in first 5 games. He looks real special.

He sure does. Mattingly is going to make someone very upset once Kemp and Crawford come off the DL.

Even if he wasn't as good as he is (though thank goodness he is), Puig is just fun to watch. He plays the game with total abandon.
