These days Yasiel Puig is contrite and appears to have learned his lesson following his most recent arrest in Florida for reckless driving. "He feels as bad as I've ever heard a player," President and CEO of the LA Dodgers Stan Kasten told ESPN Radio on Thursday. Puig was arrested last month for driving 110 miles per hour in a 70 miles per hour zone. It was his second reckless driving bustof 2013.
