MLB:
Thoughts on Jesse Katz’s article on Yasiel Puig?

– He was brought to Mexico and stashed in a motel for weeks by a group of smugglers with drug ties
– Promised to pay the smugglers $250,000 to deliver Puig, who would then give lead smuggler 20 percent of his future contract earnings
– Something went wrong during the negotiating process, and Puig was essentially held hostage by the smugglers while they shopped Puig around to various agents
– Puig was eventually rescued from the motel by a group of men hired to stage a kidnapping at the motel and get Puig out of there
– One of the smugglers, was killed execution-style after Puig allegedly asked a business associate of his, to help him make the threats stop

There is a saying in Cuba, Puig told me: “Dormir es cuando te toca a morir.” The phrase loses something in translation, but not much: Sleep is when it’s your turn to die. “For that reason,” he continued in Spanish, “I sleep with one eye open.”
