Puig Will Not Be on the Opening Day Roster

Really, this isn't me postulating that the Dodgers should send him to the minors.  It's the Dodgers. 

Yasiel Puig is AA bound, and no amount of screaming from the peanut gallery will change that.  Check out the tweet just sent by the @Dodgers below.

So, there you have it.  Arguably, our top prospect (with less than a year of professional experience under his belt) is going to Chattanooga to hone his craft.  He'll face better and stronger competition on a nightly basis, and I have to believe this will round him out into a more complete player.  Besides, there wasn't any room for him in LA, and the last thing I would want is for him to ride the pine. 

That being said, doesn't Puig's emergence make you want to smile and laugh uncontrollably?   I have visions of Jackson-style home runs in my head, and blindsided league scouts aching from their poorly made prognostications regarding how we overpaid for the that Cuban fellow.  Thankfully, it appears we will have the last laugh.
