Mattingly: Puig Is Baseball's Best Right Fielder 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue May 27, 2014 8:14 pm

Don Mattingly believes that Yasiel Puig has emerged as the best right fielder in baseball today.

Puig made his Major League debut about a year ago.

"We feel like, right now, Yasiel is the best right fielder in baseball," Mattingly said. "This guy dominates right field."

Mattingly never heard of Jose Bautista?

JoeyBats plays in Canada, so he doesn't count.

This is a joke right? Being good in RF means you have to do more than just hit homers and draw walks.

Jose is good defensively. I suggest you do some research before opening your mouth again.

I hope you didn't start an account just to write this.

Bautista had better defensive ratings than Puig did in 2013 and while Puig is ahead of Jose this year, it's still close. Puig is very good defensively, you just concluded incorrectly that Batista wasn't as well. However they both struggle to play CF.
