Family plug

This has nothing to do with the Padres so stop reading if that bothers you. The following link does have a really hot picture of Brooke Burke though, so you may want to give it a chance.

John Sickels profiled the top Astros prospects recently. I haven't mentioned it anywhere on this blog before, but my brother-in-law is in the organization. There he is at number 14. Hoorah, Brooksy!

Trouble is, their top prospect was drafted in the first round same year as Brooks and he plays second as well. BOOO! In any case, Brooks reports for spring training this week and I'm sure he'll do his best. This is just a little something to wish him luck this season and continued success even though the pricks at Baseball America think he's a "scrappy overachiever" with no future on the club. How do you produce constantly as a top offensive threat on every team you play on in college and the pros and still get labeled an "overachiever"? He puts the same consistent numbers up at every level. An overachiever is a dude on roids bumping his slugging percentage up 100 points. If you do it the same way every single time and literally show no signs that there's anything abnormal... you're overachieving? Jerks.

Anyways. Back to your regularly scheduled Padres rants.
