    Let's take a second against the Padres to look at what Tony Gwynn did as a Padres player.

    Played 20 seasons....

    * career avg .338

    * from 1993-1997 his batting average was .368

    * most remember him being heavy, stole over 300 SB including 56 in one season

    * had more walks than strikeouts 19 out of 20 seasons

    * from age 30 on he played 12 seasons....only one time did he strikeout 25 or more times in a season....and the year he did he had 28 whiffs in 651 plate appearances and hit .372

    * in his final 12 seasons he struck out once out of every 31 plate appearances

    * 8x batting champ

    * 5x Gold Glove

    * his final season at age 41 and vastly overweight he hit .324.

    Loved Tony Gwynn

    Wish I had a stat available that showed how many times Homer is handed a lead in the middle innings and goes right back out and coughs it up the next inning.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    One of my all-time favorite non-Reds. Maybe at the top of the list. A true pro.

    Love Votto obviously, who doesnt, but hes only seen like 4 pitches this game. Wonder if it has anything to do with the knee.
