The Fifth Tool

As all baseball fans know, the fifth tool is sometimes the most elusive. Let me break down the tools for you:

1. Hitting
2. Speed
3. Defense
4. Throwing
5. Looking good in baseball pants

If you possess all five of these tools, a manager can use you on his team like MacGuyver can use a Swiss Army Knife in a tight situation.

Archie Cianfrocco possessed this elusive fifth tool, as did Rueben Rivera. Turns out that was the only tool Rivera had.

I'm trying to think if any of the current Padres are five tool players. Hmmmm...
