Re: Enzo Hernández commits suicide
Enzo really should have been a #8 hitter, but the Padre teams on which he played were so lame that he often ended up batting leadoff so that somebody like Tommy Dean could occupy the #8 slot. This led to some truly astonishing RBI totals for Enzo (1971- 618 PAs, 12 RBI). It's not Enzo's fault he wasn't really a top-of-the-order hitter, and as with all bad ballplayers we need to remember that a bad major league player is still an elite-level baseball player.
