#22

In the Latest Leaders this week, I got #22!! Last week, I was #23, so I’m moving along slowly but steadily. In continuation of Jimmy’s “dedication” tradition, I will dedicate this ranking to one Marcus Giles.

Marcus played with the Padres in 2007. He is Brian Giles’ younger brother, and it was really cool to watch them play together that year. Marcus played second base for the majority of the year, but was released at the end of the ’07 season.

I think he’s the only guy that has had #22 in the last few years, so he’s the man. He signed a minor league deal with the Rockies for 2008, but I think he was released after Spring Training. He spend 2008 just living in San Diego with his wife and three little girls. Just a few weeks ago he was signed by the Phillies and invited to Spring Training. I hope he does very well!

In other news, the Padres signed a new play-by-play guy: Mark Neely. I think he’s related to bigpapi72, right?

Baseball is coming…I can feel it…but I think I’m going through a bit of writer’s block, so if this entry seemed a little strained, that’s why. I just can’t seem to be writing as well…AHHH!!!

Anyways, thanks to all my readers for getting me to #22. I would love to be able to dedicate a ranking to my favorite player, Kevin Kouzmanoff, soon…he’s #5…

Kaybee – congrats on moving on up and for letting us know about #22! (I found another #4 to write about.) I think you are right about Mark Neely being related to Bigpapi. Congrats again – it is well deserved!

Kaybee,
We’ll get you up to number five soon enough!! Very nice dedication to Marcus Giles! Very cool that Neely is related to one of our own! I’m so happy that baseball is coming! We have to have some kind of online blog party! And if you did have writers block, it really didn’t show.
