Saying Goodbye: Andres Blanco

I was going to put up a little Hot Wire Sandwich post, but everything I wrote over the weekend seems outdated already. So instead of giving you a cold sandwich, I’m dedicating today’s post to departed infielder Andres Blanco.

It’s a shame Andres couldn’t stick around. He was great fun to watch in the field. He was a little bit vacuum cleaner, a little bit octopus. I mean, who can forget THIS?

Andres didn’t really fit anywhere on this year’s club, but it’s always a bit sad to have to say goodbye to a walking web gem… not to mention one with a munchkin chipmunk face.

Fare thee well, Senor Blanco! We wish nice things for you in Texas.

  1. That was seriously one of the most amazing SS plays I’ve ever seen. I’ll miss Blanco, too. Although I understand why he was traded, I’m still a little nervous about relying on Fontenot to play (presumably) most of the time at second base AND back up Theriot as shortstop. I guess they could call up Darwin Barney at some point, but they’ll have to send someone else down – possibly Tyler Colvin.
