    Hernandez was traded by San Diego with Mike Cuellar to Baltimore, and then traded back with others for Pat Dobson.

    2 twenty game winners involved in those trades, FWIW.

    I remember going to sleep with my round Panasonic radio next to me, listening to the Reds playing in San Diego, hearing his name said by Al Michaels. I was young.

    Enzo has been hitting well lately in my Strat replay. I was quite honored to know that he named a stadium after me in el Tigre. At least that's what the translator said. I'm guessing that something was lost in the translation.

    I mentioned Enzo in the bad player thread RZ had going a while back. I can remember him pretty well from my young days. Mainly the baseball cards I had of him. He was a big part of some bad Padre teams of the early 70's. He's still a small part of my youth and I am sad that he felt he had to end his life in this way. RIP Enzo Hernandez.

    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.

    RIP. Unfortunately, this is the first I've ever heard of poor Enzo. Kind of depressing to have two suicide threads floating around on RZ, eh? It's a difficult world for ex-athletes, I suppose. Far more so than we often think.
