Padres acquire Tony Gwynn jr

The San Diego Padres today made a trade with the Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers get Left-handed outfielder Jody Gerut. The Padres get Tony Gwynn Jr, son of the twenty year Padre and first-ballet hall of famer!

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!
