Everybody Wants to be Fernando Tatis Jr. By David Migliaccio
Some say that the grass is always greener on the other side. But the grass in Fernando Tatis Jr.’s lawn, has to be the greenest in baseball. Not long ago, the world watched Fernando sign the longest deal in the history of baseball, which will pay him $340 million dollars to live in San Diego for the next 14 years.
And of course, on opening day yesterday, he reminded us why. Coming onto the field dripped up and dreaded out, with a sweet headband, shades, and multiple gold chains around his neck. But he did more than just look clean, he might have had the smoothest way of dodging a pick off that the league has ever seen. Not to mention of course, beating the Diamondbacks in their home opener at Petco Park on Thursday. The future is bright for the kid, and hopefully, he can help lead San Diego to beat out the Dodgers to win the NL West title season.
