Before this post today, there may have only been two segments of MLB fans that realized San Diego's rookie second baseman Jedd Gyorko has 17 home runs on the season: 1) Passionate Padres followers, and 2) number-crunching fantasy baseball enthusiasts.

Todd Zola of Mastersball.com writes on Insider today that Petco Field is no longer a place where would-be home runs turn into long outs, which can only be a good thing for the fantasy potential of the Padres' young bats like Gyorko and Yonder Alonso.
