Asked how he would pitch Dodgers Cuban sensation Yasiel Puig, the 20-year-old right-hander from Jacksonville University didn't hesitate.
"I'd attack him," said the 18th overall pick in the Draft. "That's what I do. Not to say he wouldn't get the best of me sometimes, but I'd get him, too."
- This is just plain awesome! Paint the Corners, better known as @EuphusBlue on twitter, created some photoshop graphics melding some vintage 1880's style Baseball cabinet photos with the wonderful mustache's of Scott Van Slyke and Peter Moylan. See the two photo's here.
- Yasiel Puig is so hot even Panini is getting in on the action. They just released a preview pic of Puig's 2013 Pinnacle Baseball card. See it below. This set will be coming out in late July.

- This is just awesome. Well... having to wait 3 hours in a plane on a tarmac isn't great, but what some passengers did to pass the time is. The music starts at the 1:12 mark.
