I couldn't wait for this one!garvey cey russell lopes: the fernando valenzuela card that should have  been!

Funny story.

As a kid I was a Dodger fan with Fernando as my favorite player.

The off-season Dodgers let him go to, the media narrative was Lasorda burned his arm out and threw him out. I became so mad at the Dodgers. Then the Angels signed him. His first start in Anaheim I attended and he even signed my baseball. He got rocked  and only pitched another game before getting released but I became an Angel fan because they gave him a shot. 

(Fernando actually pitched in Mexico and returned to the MLB as a decent starter and then reliever)

Paul Byrd was great with fans.  His warm up song was "Shine" by the Newsboys.  He signed their CD for me. When I asked him to sign it... he was a little surprised that anyone knew the song and the band.  He was really cool about the whole thing.

This, plus every good outing led to me posting Night Owl on the MLB Angels board in 2005.
