Gwynn takes a shot at Winfield!
I like Gwynn taking a shot at Winfield right here. I found myself thinking the same thing yesterday. Wishing that Winfield didn't have to be convinced to go in as a Padre. I'd rather see a "real" Padre go in first.
Gwynn, now the baseball coach at San Diego State, was one of those thrilled to hear of yesterday's announcement.
"That's awesome," said Gwynn, clapping his hands as a big smile came across his face. "I'm happy for him. It's about time.
"I always told him he should be the first real Padre to go in. . . . As my career was coming to an end, he used to tell me I had a Hall of Fame career. I said, 'You should be a Hall of Famer before me.' "
