I don't like when the media writes a headline that's overly provocative to get you in the door and then you realize that it was kind of JV. That's how I felt about it at least.  Don't know what I mean? This... had a headline: Ex-Mets prospect with steroid past impressing Yankees

In other words, the dude they're talking about, Cesar Puello, was linked to the Biogenesis scandal.  Now he's passed that, but the media and crappy headlines like the one above won't let the dude move on. could have done it so much better:

Ex-Met Puello is opening eyes in Yankee Spring Training  or how about Yankee new comer starts a new chapter

Why do we continually hit the negative? Is it necessary? It's not actually.

Here's some background on Puello:

"Before the scandal, Puello was one of the brightest spots in the Mets' organization. At 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds, the Dominican Republic native projected to provide right-handed power and a strong arm in right field.

Puello's breakout season came in 2013, when he hit .326 with 16 homers and 73 RBI at Double-A. But it's been mostly downhill since. After the suspension, Puello had a down 2014, hitting just .252 with seven homers in 104 games at Triple-A. And he spent most of 2015 on the disabled list with a stress fracture in his back.

But he showed enough to Yankees scouts in the Dominican winter league to warrant an invitation to major-league spring training."

I guess Alex Rodriguez redeemed himself and the media needs to bash other alleged users.  It's sad actually.   That headline, while factual, almost seems wrong. My opinion of course.

Root for Puello. It looks like it could end up being a nice story.  We're going with the 'nice story' here.  Sorry You blew that one.
