DENVER — If Michael Young is to be believed, his childhood idol was Don Mattingly.
"It's not going to get him in the lineup any faster," Mattingly said, jokingly.

Clearly, Yasiel Puig is not going to do anything in typical fashion. Not his throws, not his baserunning and not being sent to the doghouse. Dramatics are the order of his day, every day.
