For years Puig has been labeled as a fit in Miami but I think suddenly now that may be more true than just being because of his nationality.

I’m sure the marketing people would be ecstatic and would have predictable responses

It’s a good move from a marketing standpoint. Even though that aspect may be overstated at times, he is one name that could and should help attendance and interest in the team. Obviously it wouldn’t help much, but a little bit.

I would rather sign Castellanos, but I bet Puig would increase ticket sales and tv ratings quicker as odd as that sounds. Not that it matters anyway since they quit the race for Castellanos quickly.

Yeah it seems like Puig might be the one exception to that usually false concept.

Been a fan ever since I read the story about his journey from Cuba to America

why don't just fill up all the roster with cubans players that will increase attendance i guess, better yet just move Los industriales to Miami instead

They don't even play in Maimi. Haven't you heard the news? They moved to Lowly, Florida years ago.

Maybe he’ll give a nice hometown discount if that’s what he wants.

I think if this team really wants him, they should at least give him a two year contract.

Call me crazy but I think the best thing for his personality would be to be here around a bunch of Cubans who can talk some sense into him. Nothing will humble you more than a grown man telling you “oye, para de comer mierda”

Puig would not only improve the offense and defense of this team but also would improve the attendance number of this team, so just like what I always said, why not just go all in to sign him !?
