WHO’S MORE ELECTRIC: TROUT VS PUIG?
Normally, spring training baseball is all about ‘getting your work in.’ But today, Dylan went electric. After diving and coming up empty on Mike Trout’s liner, Yasiel Puig teamed up with Hanley Ramirez to throw out WAR’s greatest hero as he tried to score on an inside the park home run. In a further sign that this sentence may eventually sum up the entirety of the 2014 season, instant replay was needed to ascertain that, yes, Trout was out.
Here’s the highlight:
But who’s the more exciting player to watch? Trout may be more fundamentally sound, everything he does possessing a certain Fred Astairian grace, but Puig plays the game with a reckless abandon that makes every play dangerous and frightening. He’s a regular James Dean of the diamond.
Unfortunately, according to our calculations, they are currently equal in their excite-o-meter, so hopefully 2014 will help tip the scales. We’ll have to wait a little while though, as these two teams are not scheduled to face each other until August 4th.
James Dean > Fred Astaire.
