Gwynn jr has yet to prove himself as a major leaguer, but he has some obvious skills. And the Padres, still struggling with a poor record, really have nothing to lose.
The Padres lack a legitimate lead-off man, and Gwynn jr has promise as one. Beside that, of course, is the moral booster of once again having a Gwynn roam the San Diego outfield.
As a native San Diegan and life long Padres fan, it really hits the nostalgia button to have Gwynn jr play for the friars.
I will be watching this move attentively.
I hope Gwynn Jr proves himself and earns a place as a valuable member of the San Diego Padres!
In other news, Trevor Hoffman saved his 11th tonight for the Brewers. He has yet to blow a save or even to allow a run.
The baseball world is bringing me much joy tonight!
