What Jim Murray Never Wrote about Yonder Alonso

Yonder Alonso may not look or hit like a big-league first baseman, but that’s what the cigar-shaped kid from Havana is.

Yonder Alonso: 2013 Fantasy Sleeper

Once considered one of the best up-and-coming players in the game, Yonder Alonso has fallen off the map. Ranked by Baseball America as the top prospect in the Padres organization last year, Alonso slashed a decent .273/.348/.393 in his first full season in the majors. However, due to his lack of power (he only hit nine home runs last year) and the vast depth of the first base position...

Alonso to Train with Wild Thing?

Just a little humor to brighten your day and get you ready for the weekend, but I saw this tweet and couldn't help but think of Yonder Alonso training and partying with Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn.
