MLB NL Player of the Week in his first week: Yasiel Puig

Yasiel Puig had an unbelievable week! In his first week in the Majors, he batted .464 (13 for 28), hit four homeruns which included a grand slam, and got 10 RBI in the leadoff spot. Oh and what can we say of that cannon of an arm? It is just incredible! We don’t expect him to do that every week but what a joy to watch this 22 year old Cuban!

Yasiel Puig’s 13 hits through his first seven games are the most for any Dodger player since 1916. Even in the 8-1 Dodger loss to the Braves on Sunday he managed to go 3 for 5 and make another rocket throw from the outfield. I was at the stadium just saying “WOW!” “Amazing!”

The minute the Puig shirts were in the Dodger stores, people were buying them and you could see them everywhere at the stadium. The Puig jersey hit the store on Sunday or at least is when I saw them in the club level store. Puigmania is in full force at Dodger Stadium.
