: In August, the #Dodgers proposed a waiver trade that would have sent Yasiel Puig to the #Nationals in exchange for Bryce Harper


Damn ....


Bet Rizzo wanted to do it and the Lerners vetoed

Puig? The guy that sat in the outfield pouting when his pitcher gave up a homerun?? Pass.

yeah, no.  I can't imagine Rizzo wanting that deal.  I liked his comment in the Boz article about being prepared to move on, but not believing that we're better without Harper.  It was spot on.

If he was prepared to move on why not get something in return?

Puig and Soto back-to-back in the lineup would be awesome.
Entertaining? Yes. Awesome ...... not really

More curious what else was in the deal. I think Puig is pretty overrated.

Why would you think there would be anything else in the deal? Harper is a free agent.

Dunno. Puig would be the worst starting outfielder on the team if he were here.

.267 batting average. .820 OPS. .833 the year before.  I’ll take it. Get him and you can trade Eaton and get a pitcher.

I'd rather have Eaton. I'm done with guys who strike out all the time and can't throw to the cutoff. Eaton is better and cheaper.

I keep thinking that too; then ... he keeps coming up big, or at least semi-big. in the post season. I'd really like to know how he fits in the Dodgers clubhouse? Do his teammates like, or resent him?

Puig is a total headcase and not a guy you want in your clubhouse.  He doesn't produce nearly enough to put up with his baggage.  The Dodgers have been shopping him and just a few years ago sent him to the minors just as a "timeout" for being a pain in the butt.

He was sent to the minors because he wasn’t producing. He has hit well the past two years. So are you saying with Puig we won’t win a playoff series? Hmmm.  Would have been good to get something for Harper. You could always have traded Puig. Something is better than nothing. Or a post 4th round draft pick.

Puig doesn't seem to be much more of a headcase than Royce does...

I feel like Puig's clubhouse issues are a narrative from his rookie year and not really accurate anymore. That monster dong he hit in the World Series was freaking awesome.

It was, but then his reaction to the homerun being given up later kind of wasn't.

He should've cheered the bomb Madson yielded just to show he's a good clubhouse guy.

Instead of losing Harper for nothing?? At the very least we could have flipped Puig for s decent player.

We messed up big time by not trading him at the deadline.
