It’s been 30+ years since an incredibly young and impossibly talented Senor Valenzuela came north from Mexico to ignite the baseball scene and Latin community of Southern California with Fernandomania. Now it’s happening again with sensational debut of a Cuban defector, Yasiel Puig.
Under new management, the Dodgers have spent a fortune to assemble a high-priced fantasy baseball lineup that has floundered disappointingly and put Don Mattingly’s managerial job at risk. All Star names have posted pedestrian numbers for a squad that was expected to compete for a pennant but has lethargically sunk to the cellar. Then came a mighty spark “puig”.
Highly-touted 22 year-old Cuban defector Yasiel Puig hit Chavez Ravine like an earthquake, belting 4 homers, batting .500 and being named the NL Player of the Week in his MLB debut! He’s fast, strong, flashy and exudes an infectious energy that could shake this roster out of its doldrums. Viva the Dodgers, VIVA PUIG!
