More crooked numbers in Gyorko's future?

9/9/2013

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.
