The Legend of Vlad Guerrero

Jonah Keri:

Vladimir Guerrero doesn’t invite the same reverence as Mays, the same all-time status as Griffey, or even the same Fallonization of “Nomah.” Still, there exists a group of baseball fans who watched Vlad from the beginning, who saw him burst into the majors as our generation’s Roberto Clemente, making plays no one else could make, doing things no one else could do.

Great article on Vlad’s career and how unusual it all was. His debut in 1997 was just about the right time for me to have gotten to experience (and remember) his entire career. When he was healthy, he was amazing to watch.
