This guy is cracking me up with his quotes:
"I'm trying, man; I'm trying to make this club right here,"McAnulty talking about John Kruk and Pole, man.
"Yeah, I've heard I'm a 'bad-body' guy," said the 5-foot-10, 220-pounder from Oxnard. "It doesn't matter to me none, man. John Kruk and Matt Stairs – those guys raked in the big leagues for a lot of years. They could swing the pole. I take it as a compliment."Nice little shot at Klesko here. Take that Klesko.
In his first chance he landed a home run in Petco Park's right-field seats – which Padres lefties Ryan Klesko and Sean Burroughs never reached all season.Put this guy on the club! I like him!
"It was a big deal to me, even though I didn't show it," McAnulty said. "I was pumped out of my gourd. I got around the bases faster than I regularly do."
"I'll play anywhere one through nine in the lineup," he said. "I'll even go behind the dish if they want me to."
