Happy Cinco de Mayo to all my amigos!! In honor of the independence of our proud neighbors to the south, I would like to pay tribute to my favorite Mexican professional athletes currently playing on NBA and MLB rosters. In the NBA it has to be Eduardo Najera - I like the lunch-pail, hard-nosed mentality; he has been fun to watch from college at Oklahoma through the Mavericks and Nuggets in the Nothing But Attitude league. In the MLB it is definately Adrian Gonzalez - thanks Rangers for trading him (and Chris Young) to the Padres; he hits for average and power, and his glove is muy bueno.
Via con Dios.
