I gotta say, i miss Julian Tavarez playing for the Cards. Even though we never used him as a starter i still liked him in the pen. his year in 2004 was great (proving that dave duncan's skills with pitchers just somehow brings the best out of most of the pitchers he meets.....most)
I personally think julian is one of the most off the wall players in the game today when he's not pitching, and even though i hated it when he went to boston, i'm of course glad he signed with the nats, even though i'm not too happy with the way he went about it. 600 pound J-Lo ha!
There is this video i watched on youtube with papelbon trying to speak spanish with julian helping him off camera back in 08. Julian's comments are hilarious to listen to in the background, and papelbon's thick louisiana accent trying to speak spanish is great.
