Frieri To The Angels

I got this card along with a host of others from my friend Shane two years ago and scanned it and started to write about it on August 2nd, 2010, which also happened to be the day I wrote the best thing I've written for this silly little nerdblog. I kept dawdling around without finishing or retooling it until today, when I was given a newsworthy enough reason to dust it off. Ernasty is an Angel now. He served well in his time in America's Finest City but met the inevitable end that successful Padres relievers meet by being flipped for two promising kids. He was never one of my favorites but he didn't scare the crap out of me when he got called in like the Scott Linebrinks and Greg Burkes of the world, so there's that. I wish Frieri the best in all of his future endeavors on and off the field; thanks for serving, Big Ern.
