Middle names of Padres infielders from the 1990s

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

I have always been fascinated by middle names and infielders, and the 1990s is my favorite era of Padres baseball, so I looked up every infielder who played for the Padres between 1990 and 1999, and then...

Okay, that's not why I did this. I couldn't care less what Jeff Gardner's middle name is (it's not like I need to come up with any nicknames for him at this point), but some valued commenter said I already wrote this, and I thought it might be a nice gesture to make that dream come true for him. I'm all about giving the people what they want.

  • Roberto Alomar, Guillermo Velasquez, Andujar Cedeno, and Ricardo Gutierrez don't (didn't, in the case of Cedeno) need middle names to have a good time.
  • Joseph beat Manuel for the lead, four guys to three. Hey at least they didn't get stuck with Joseph for a first name. 'Til the day I die, at least one person every day will ask me where I'm goin' with that gun in my hand. Funny stuff, you guys.
