So is this the latest guy people will fawn over while he's young and then "hate" after a couple years?

The first time I laid eyes on Ichiro was during his first ST in the US at Scottsdale Stadium. He threw a strike to third from foul territory in the RF corner, probably ten feet from the OF wall. It is still probably the most amazing single act I've seen in baseball (Iguchi's play is another one at the top of my list), and I became an Ichiro fan from the get go. Though I have to admit I was looking forward to seeing him play to begin with.

Was at the Giants' game last night. We were sitting in RF. The Giants got blown out, but at one point made some feeble noise to start a rally while losing 8-1. In the third inning, with one out, a single was followed by a Sandoval double to right field. I couldn't see the initial attempt but Puig didn't catch it and the ball came off the wall and bounced in toward the infield. Puig ran the ball down but overshot it and the third base coach seeing this started to wave the runner around third, but suddenly started frantically waving the stop sign when he saw Puig recover quickly and pick up the ball. The runner did indeed stop as Puig grabbed the ball wheeled and unleashed a humpback line drive throw that hit the catcher in the mitt chest high from about 270 feet. The guy's a freaking stud...

I heard they gave Puig a nice welcome out there.

Wait, I thought we were supposed to think he sucks by now since he's from Cuba and other players like Shingo Takatsu, who also is not from America, had marginal levels of success in the majors.
