Yasiel Puig Newsbeat

Investigators estimated that $170,000 in jewelry and “other items” were taken from Puig’s residence, though that figure could grow, according to Preciado.
The break-in was the latest in a string of thefts from celebrity homes across the city. Last month, burglars ripped a safe containing $2 million in jewelry from the Brentwood home of singer Alanis Morissette, police said.

“It’s more of a mental thing,” Puig said through an interpreter about the advice he received. “Things that you have to fix yourself. Nobody can do it for you. You have to leave the bad things in the past and continue to work toward the future to get better. Continue to do your job.
“You just have to focus on what you have to do, and if you focus, things get easier,” Puig explained, his eyes wide open, his thinner faced relaxed. “That’s the reason great ballplayers have been successful, like Harper, Trout, Robinson Cano and Pujols. They have seen results because they focus, and that’s what I’m trying to do now.
“I think this year I’m going to play, not to put up stats, but rather to pay them back and to make sure that I follow their advice and make them feel like I was listening. I know that I can be a better person like they are, on and off the field. Not just batting, but being an overall good person.”

The order from the bosses: Make one trade for every team. Done. I had to rewrite this whole thing, though, because I had the Yankees trading Brian McCann to the Astros, and then it really happened. You should have seen some of the deals I had in the original piece.
Chicago White Sox trade LHP Chris Sale and RHP David Robertson to the Los Angeles Dodgers for OF Yasiel Puig, RHP Jose De Leon, RHP Yadier Alvarez, and OF Alex Verdugo.
OK, let’s start with a blockbuster. The White Sox have the ability to control the strings of this offseason depending on what they decide to do with Sale, Jose Quintana, Melky Cabrera and Todd Frazier, who could all be moved if Rick Hahn tears things up. Sale is so valuable because he’s so good and will make just $38 million over the next three seasons. Puig is the big name here, but De Leon would enter the ChiSox rotation in 2017, while Alvarez and Verdugo are both top-100 prospects for 2017.

You can’t drive up the asking price by not talking him up.
He simply conceded that Puig has “re-established himself as an important part of our ballclub.”
The Dodgers nonetheless have a surplus in the outfield. Joc Pederson is the center fielder, but the corner candidates include Puig, Andre Ethier, Andrew Toles, Howie Kendrick, Scott Van Slyke, Kiké Hernandez and Trayce Thompson.
