I though about making a "My apologies to deno" thread. For bein so hard on him. He's carved out a nice lil niche for himself and has played well. Good for him............ padres still should have gone after a big bopper in 2010, instead of Pudstink and Deno.
I suspect he is a guy who has always played flat out - that just seems to be him
He also was a fairly highly touted prospect (be sure to ask me who drafted him so that we can beavisays to cry a little about who they got for him) who lost a ton of time to injury (Tommy John)
So he's one of those "blue collar" guys who sees that it can all be taken away tomorrow and so he plays all out today.... he was signed by the Padres as a minor league free agent
Here's a little treat for his fans http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCCKEsNMomA
