Nate Colbert: On a scale from Zero to Tony Gwynn

via i3.photobucket.com

The Zero to Tony Gwynn scale is a rating of a Padres' importance to the San Diego Padres and their fans. The scale works to determine the relative importance of a particular Padre based on the assumption that Tony Gwynn is the perfect representation of the San Diego Padres.

I am, admittedly, weirded out by the responses in our Zero to Tony Gwynn series so far. I mean... it's a scale that goes 0 through Tony Gwynn and increments by one each time until you get to Tony Gwynn. So you can't say that Ted Leitner rates a Tony Gwynn on a scale of Zero to Tony Gwynn unless you think that Leitner is in fact as important or more important than Tony Gwynn to the Padres.

And let's be honest, if we didn't have Ted Leitner as the announcer, how much worse could we possibly do? Even if we don't replace him, that just means we probably get more Jerry Coleman, which is a good thing, right?

Anyways... I want to see what everyone thinks about Nate Colbert. Remember Nate Colbert? If you weren't around when he played, do you know who Nate Colbert is? I'm not going to sell this a lot, but let's just say that Rob Neyer considered Nate Colbert one of the Padres' top two first basemen in team history as recently as 2006 (pre-Adrian Gonzalez), but nobody ever talks about him.

So Nate Colbert, arguably the first Padres star. RANK HIM!

[Note by Dex, 02/08/10 3:59 PM EST ] I should say that there are no wrong answers here (as much as I criticize people who really really like Ted Leitner). If you honestly have no idea who Nate Colbert is, then feel free to rate him lower. It's your thing. Do what you want to do. I can't tell you who to sock it to.
