I am very intrigued to see if Puig can keep up .950-1.000 OPS numbers. He's obviously incredibly talented, and if he's still a little raw (possible) it's also possible he could get better. I do think the immaturity angle is driven by the media somewhat, it's probably blown out of proportion.
I guess someone should explain what "immature" behavior he exhibits.
Late? Yeah, tighten that up. Otherwise, you look like a primadonna before you've earned it and that is a clubhouse issue.
Unreasonable celebrations? If the guy who bats behind you is getting drilled, re-evaluate what you celebrate.
Bad on-field decisions? Figure out what you're doing wrong but don't lose enthusiasm for playing the game.
Off-field crap? Don't sweat it while playing well but know you'll be criticized for it when you slump.
Is there anything else that makes him "immature"? Because, if that's it, it's not very much to worry over and should be easily fixed.
