Yasiel Puig’s house was broken into during Game 7

8 Comments

Yasiel Puig had a bad night. His Dodgers lost Game 7 of the World Series AND some jackwagons broke into his house.

That’s the report from CBS Los Angeles, which says that Puig’s home was burglarized while his team was losing 5-1 to the Astros and while, you have to figure, half the city was watching that and not out going for walks and things. As the for break-in: the a window of his home was smashed, and some items were taken. TMZ reports that the burglar alarm went off, so the jackwagons managed to grab only a few items of jewelry before fleeing the scene.

This is not the first time this year Puig has been the victim of a robbery. Back in March, while Puig was away for Spring Training, thieves took over a half million dollars worth of jewelry from his house. It was a different house, but apparently his real estate upgrade didn’t include a guard house out front.

Bright side: if they hit him again next summer, there won’t be a World Series ring there to steal.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
