Doug Mirabelli

From Gaslamp Ball Wiki - A Wiki for San Diego Padres Fans

Doug Mirabelli is a sack of crap who played 14 games for the Padres in 2006. He was acquired in a trade with the Boston Red Sox for second baseman Mark Loretta.

  • Mirabelli somehow parlayed a single skill (being able to catch a knuckleball) into a 12-year MLB career. He had no other discernable use.
  • While in San Diego, Mirabelli would frequently cry himself to sleep while dreaming about clam chowder and pink Red Sox hats.
  • On May 1st, 2006, Doug got his wish and was traded back to the Red Sox in exchange for Josh Bard, Cla Meredith and cash. He expressed relief for being "back in the big leagues."
  • Mirabelli is universally hated in San Diego.
