    I was reading the statement put out by Puig through his lawyer regarding the sexual assault claim, and I've got to say, I believe him. There are very few times when I feel sympathy for a professional athlete making boatloads to play a game, but in this instance, I actually do. They're such easy targets for money-hungry opportunists. What are they supposed to do - carry a consent form and have it signed prior to any sexual encounters? Should they also employ a notary to follow them around for any spur-of-the-moment trysts?

    Also, I know as an alleged victim of sexual assault, the woman gets to keep her anonymity. But if it's proven in court that she fabricated the whole "assault" part of the encounter and Puig is exonerated, she should lose anonymity and have to face the music. Claims like this only harm the cause for real victims.

    Ump might have been fooled by the sound of the ball hitting the dirt.

    That aside, umpiring, especially behind the plate in Dodger games has been brutal this year.

    He'll always have a soft spot in my heart (in a manly way) for his K of Arozarena in the Series.

    Joc is off to about as bad of a start as you can possibly have in Chicago.

    Watching the game today and he's misplayed three balls in the outfield and looks clueless at the plate.

    4-40 with 15 Ks at the plate so far....yikes

    Better get his shit together in the regular season, because there probably won't be a post season Joc in 2012.

    Too bad, but I'm not too surprised. Chicago overwhelms the appetite, and Joc and I are both driven by that weakness. Add to that his flakiness as to the art of hitting, and the lack of due diligence ... bad combo.

    Yeah but when all those carbs and fat and lack of thinking and preparation coalesce into the power juice that puts ice in his veins during the crunch when everyone elses balls are up their colon and Hoc is blasting homers and winning playoff games for them we will be singing another tune. One called remember the the time we fell in love with Joc Pederson.
    Do you remember girl!

    I remember. And I like the guy (very homo - so be it)

    But there's this thing about being hot shit in October... you need to hit lefties and/or your weight between April & September. The guy is uneven, undependable, and a liability for the majority of the season. That got old fast. And now he's in a town of assholes and they'll fly his fat ass up that flag pole unless they fly a W ...
