The Dodgers, Yasiel Puig and staring straight into cold reality

If Puig doesn't respond this weekend , reality needs to come crashing down After a great May that saw him hit 8 HRs with 25 RBIs, he's hit 2 homers and driven in 20 in 3A1 2 months since So did you read that thing I wrote about Yasiel Puig that said the Dodgers should add another "6" to his jersey, have his name stricken from their record books, send him back to Cuba or maybe fed to the fishes? Me, neither, though you would think I had judging by some of the comments. Come now kiddies, can't you disagree without the name-calling and ugliness? Play nice.
