Up until a few weeks ago I had absolutely no idea who this guy was. I know, shame on me.
The name first came up when I asked for requests one night, intending to use some names I heard of. A Dodger fan piped in, and suggested Kemp and Ethier, but also Javy Guerra. I didn't know who that was, so I kinda set him aside.
About a week later I found a yahoo article about the Dodgers' closer using his entrance music to honor mexican refugees. Sure enough, I found out right then and there that Javy Guerra was the Dodgers' closer.
It is at this point that I might add that I had no idea Jonathan Broxton was in Kansas City until halfway through last month. So then I thought "oh yeahh...THAT'S who's closing in LA. Ohhh."
I promptly slapped myself for not knowing that. Guerra is erasing any memories of Broxton, or even Gagne. He's a really good closer, and may have a future with the team.
Coming Tomorrow- Satchell Paige isn't remembered for much in terms of the MLB, but he's remembered for pitching a game in 1965 in his sixties. He's the current holder of the oldest man ever to pitch a baseball game. And thanks to this man, his record is in danger.
