Vlad’s been delivering the goods

Ever seen or read an interview with Vladimir Guerrero?  It’s hard to imagine in this day and age that a surefire Hall of Famer could enjoy a career with such anonymity, but the media-shy Vlad continues to fly under-the-radar.

And while the limited English-speaking skills of the veteran superstar of the Los Angeles Angels have kept his amazing career unnoticed by most, odds are pretty good that he’s perfectly content without all of the attention.

Meanwhile, his performance in this year’s playoffs has been quietly redemptive for the 35-year old slugger who has certainly heard the whispers about his theoretically declining skills.

Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times piece on Vladdy today, “Angels’ Vladimir Guerrero has come through in October”, says it all.

Where will the free agent-to-be wind up next season as he winds down his career?  That topic is for another day as Guerrero and the Angels look to extend their season tonight in game 6 of the ALCS against the Yankees in the Bronx.
