I just got back from a week of spring training games in The Cactus League, watching talented young men trying to make it to the most elite level of their game. On the way there (driving) my wife and I listened to Where Nobody Knows Your Name, a book about players working back and forth from the minors to the majors. It really put Spring Training in perspective.

When we got to the games it was obvious that these guys are taking every drill, every at bat, every single play, as a chance to make it to The Show or perhaps just stay on the radar for a call-up. There are a lot of young guys in this group, as young as Puig, as removed from their home as Puig, and they are working their asses off.

I just ask all the people that say that rest of us are "hating" on Puig for simply pointing out the obvious to take a moment to think of the thousands of guys in the minors and majors grinding it out every day, sometimes for horrible pay, for the chance at Major League Baseball. I wonder how they feel about Puig, pissing it away?

Read this to see what you're in for if you think you have a chance at making the minors. Good luck!

Here are a few books that I really enjoyed. The first couple are stats-oriented, while the third is more narrative-driven.

Moneyball by Michael Lewis

The Only Rule Is It Has to Work by Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller

Read this book over the summer. Was an easy read and pretty interesting. Details multiple accounts of what life in the minor leagues is like for rookies, veterans, umpires and broadcasters.

I'm just finishing up the book, Where nobody knows your name by John Feinstein absolutely loved it. It helped teach me a lot about the unspoken in baseball, and I really hope your book becomes available on Amazon so I can read it!

Best of luck to you on the book!
