I just read today that Willingham is back very soon, so Gonzo's at bats will dwindle.

Just got back from watching the Marlins in Seattle on Monday. I got there early to catch BP and brought my camera to snap a few pics. Mostly when I hang out with the autograph seekers by the dugout, the few players that come over are relief pitchers and reserves (Oakland was a notable exception--pretty much their entire starting rotation, plus guys like Barton, and Ellis came over). You hardly ever get any established veterans venture near the fans.

Well, Gonzo was one of the Marlins that came by to sign autographs after BP and he was very courteous. Someone brought up the big home runs he hit in his home run derby win in 2001 (at Safeco) and he smiled. I then mentioned he also had the last big hit of the 2001 season and he smiled even bigger.

He hung around for about 10 minutes signing and chatting with people. Definitely a class act.

Also, Hanley Ramirez came over and signed for about 5 minutes, which surprised me. He, too, seems like a good guy.

Gonzo's always interacted well with fans. That's a part of his job that he truly enjoys. I've heard numerous reports of fans running into Luis in various public places and been told how friendly he was in greeting them.

If he can heal his self-induced scars with the Diamondbacks, he'd be perfect in a public relations position after his on-field days are finished.

gonzo 3 for 4 today with a homer. 2 for 5 yesterday with a double.

Hes currently at 4358 total bases passing Eddie Matthews at 4349. Probably would have a hard time catching Mike Schmidt at 4404 this year.

Hes only 12 doubles away from 600 which would make him one of only 6 players in baseball history with 600 doubles and 350 hrs. (Musial, Yaz, Aaron, Ripken, Bonds the other 5)
