The National League is overloaded with pitchers.
And who in the name of old Jack Murphy Stadium is going to represent the San Diego Padres?
So while the polarizing debate over whether Puig should be selected Saturday is certainly a juicy one, when all is said and done he'll either have a backup role in the NL outfield or he won't. The most difficult decisions involve other positions.
