Fonzie Rising: A Comeback in the Offing

Edgardo Alfonzo, yes THAT Edgardo Alfonzo, is making a bid to return to the big leagues.

Remember when we had the best defensive infield ever? Magical times my friends...magic.

In a story reminiscent of Fernando Tatis, Fonzie was last seen in a big league uniform in 2006, when he hit a paltry .126 for the Angels and Blue Jays. He was a former star and still young when he departed. It seems as if his true promise was never met.

He has now dropped a few pounds and is raking in the Venezuelan leagues to the tune of a .322 BA, with 8 dingers and 42 RBIs in 60 games.

It would be great to see this past Mets star make a comeback and play some worthwhile games for a contender. He's obviously not a good fit for the Mets, but he would be an excellent fit for the Devil Rays, Cubs or Yankees as a pinch hitter and role player.

If nothing else he is a fantastic teammate and can help younger players on their technique.

Good luck Fonzie!
