  • Many a moon ago (so, like, a few months ago) a rumor swirled around that the San Francisco Giants had heightened interest in former Dodgers outfielder and current national treasure, Yasiel Puig. Well, in our wildest baseball dreams it appears that may be coming to fruition now. Cuban baseball writer Francys Romero is reporting that a deal with the Giants is almost done.

Puig nor the Giants have released any formal comments regarding this alleged contract, so take all of this with, like, half of a grain of salt. Given the freeze MLB has put on transactions, we may not have an official statement on this until baseball resumes, and your guess is as good as mine on that. He’d certainly add some fun and enjoyable baseball during a tough rebuild for the Giants, plus a solid bat to their lineup. And now, like everything else these days...we wait.
